meet our creatives

Apr 13

Rokk ebony salons are adorned with images of the latest fashion styles to inspire our clients to strive for a look that is both chic and stylish. Designed by the rokk ebony creative team, these photographs fill the covers and pages of hairdressing magazines worldwide. Press clippings of international coverage from recent times were proudly published in a special book commemorating rokk ebony’s 25th Anniversary(also in flipbook format on this page).

Inspiring seasonal collections are only part of the creative team’s agenda. Rokk ebony’s talented hairdressers have a flair for high profile hair fashion, both in and out of the salon. This includes highly renowned catwalk parades, such as the 2015 Melbourne Spring Fashion Week Curated show at Collins Place, session hairdressing for corporate marketing campaigns, and editorial fashion shoots for high end magazines.

  • Daniella Barca

    Daniella Barca was born to be a hairdresser. At age 12 she was a work experience girl, discovering the joys of hairdressing. Her passion continued to grow, and now Daniella is a Style Director, Team Leader and Technical Director at rokk ebony Mentone.

    As soon as she was old enough, Daniella began her long-awaited apprenticeship, and three months after she started working at rokk ebony, won her first hairdressing competition. Since then, Daniella has won a string of awards, worked on catwalk shows, fashion shoots and won a coveted place on the F.A.M.E.

  • Adam Isles

    UK expat Adam Isles has much more than his charming accent to keep the loyalty of his clients. His popularity is all down to his skills, his focus, extensive experience, and willingness to create innovative looks while having an awful lot of fun at the same time. Before becoming a colourful part of rokk ebony’s Creative Team, Adam started his career in the north of England, where he took first place in Wella’s Young Graduate Colour Course, winning a study trip to Monaco and L.A. His next highlight was in 2009 when Adam arrived in Melbourne, landing straight into rokk ebony’s heart. Both a superb cutter and colourist, Adam is a true ambassador of rokk ebony.

    Due to his mastery and virtuosity, on 10 April 2016, Adam was named a member of the 2016 F.A.M.E. Team, a rigorously selected group of Australia’s most talented hairdressers under 35. Travelling the world, he will gain mentoring and education from the hairdressing industry’s top names and with the other three team members, present platform education and complete photo shoots. Adam’s skill as a colourist was also recognised by the industry, earlier in the year, when he was named a finalist in the Australian Hair Fashion Awards.

  • Chung-Yang “Yoshi” Su

    As a child, Chung Yang “Yoshi” Su had his nose in either fashion magazines or his own sketch book. However, Yoshi hadn’t considered a career in hairdressing until he found himself between jobs after a stint of National Service in Taiwan. To his delight, Yoshi discovered that hairdressing combined all the skills and he had ever learnt. Being creative and disciplined has won Yoshi many awards, including 2014 AHFA Avant Garde Hairdresser of the Year. Yoshi found his place in rokk ebony in 2010 and has gone on to prove himself a creative enigma and valued member of the team, especially as a mentor to rokk ebony’s younger hairdressers.

  • Emily Costabile

    Emily Costabile is a woman of many talents. She is known for lifting spirits with not only her amazing hair and colour skills, but her singing ability has resulted in her being very popular with her clients. Emily has been with rokk ebony throughout her apprenticeship and ensuing career, helping start up the South Melbourne salon. Today, she leads one of the busiest colour departments of the rokk group, and was a finalist in the colour category for Wella Trend Vision. Always willing to give the latest fashion a go, Emily can be seen sporting the latest styles in cut and colour.
