our
tribe

we put the rokk in paper rokk

we are experts in our craft.
hair is what we do.
caring for our clients is what we love.

we are ashamed to know, that a visit to the hairdresser can be one of the most overwhelming and anxiety causing experiences on a woman’s calendar. The misconception of judgement, embarrassment over hair condition, budget consideration and perhaps social overwhelm of chatting to a new stylist – all very real, and very overwhelming. 

fear not – we are the answer. A zero judgement, hair oasis for all.   

our hair stylists are experts in their craft, obsessed with all things hair but more importantly, passionate about creating a memorable hair experience for every guest – long after you’ve left the salon. 

meet our tribe. we can't wait to meet you.
