Is Luxury Haircare Ripe for Disruption?

NEW YORK, United States —  A few years ago, Oribe co-founder Tevya Finger reached out to 30 of the brand’s loyal hair salon partners and asked them a question he never anticipated seriously considering: should Oribe, a prestige haircare line with tightly controlled distribution, sell on Amazon?

“There were 50 vendors already selling Oribe on Amazon that we didn’t sell to, which was highly frustrating for us,” says Finger, describing just a sliver of the product diversion problem that beauty brands in general, and salon haircare brands in particular, have long battled. The scale of the issue is hard to quantify, but a 2010 lawsuit estimated that $1 billion of professional beauty products are sold through unofficial channels each year. Amazon’s marketplace is fertile ground for unauthorised vendors, who undercut suggested prices and often sell used product.

“It was disintegrating all of the value that we tried to build in this highly curated brand,” says Finger, now the chief executive of Luxury Brand Partners, a firm with a portfolio of haircare brands including Oribe, R+Co and V76. The company sold colour cosmetics brand Becca to Estée Lauder last year for a reported $200 million.
