Last December, Kao USA snapped up Oribe Hair Care from Luxury Brand Partners. Daniel Kaner, cofounder and copresident of Oribe has another way of looking at the deal. “I like to think we joined Kao,” said Kaner on the beauty industry-focused podcast called “Where Brains Meet Beauty” hosted by Jodi Katz, founder and creative director of Base Beauty Creative Agency.

I’ll do it with the same passion as when we started the business because I love it.”

And I’m not saying I’m Steph Curry, but when you’re on [showrunner] Ryan Murphy’s team, it seems more palpable than ever,” he continues. (Criss previously starred on “Glee,” another Murphy creation, although they didn’t directly work together.) “I feel like I’ve already won the lottery.” Read more in WWD.com (📸: @lexieblacklock ) #wwdeye #darrencriss #americancrimestory #emmys2018
