Hair Cuts - Men & Women
From short and sassy to long and luxurious, RockIt Studio can custom cut your hair to match your lifestyle, your inspiration, and your personal style.

Single Process Color
A new color is applied all over to create a new base color. The hair is lifted and deposited in one easy step. It’s the most common and it’s wonderful for covering grays and adding shininess to dull hair.

Custom Foil Highlight
Foil highlighting is the process of using foil to separate strands of hair which will be lightened/darkened from strands of hair which will remain its natural color. Changing a person’s hair color, using lightener or haircolor to color hair strands. There are four basic types of highlights: foil highlights, hair painting, frosting, and chunking. Highlights can be done in natural or unnatural colors. Color highlights come in four categories: temporary, semi-permanent, demi-permanent and permanent. Hair lightened with bleach is permanent. foil-highlights
Color Correction
One of the hardest types of process. A highly educated stylist in color theory is needed for this process, a specialist in color. It is extremely time consuming but necessary if color errors have been made in past by at home color or inexperienced stylists “playing” with color.

Color Melt
Color melting is a process designed to melt two colors together to create a blend. One color blends in to the other seamlessly.

Balayage is a French word meaning to sweep or to paint. It allows for a sun-kissed natural looking hair colour – similar to what nature gives us as children – with softer, less noticeable regrowth lines. The principal idea being less is more when creating soft, natural looks.

Vivid Colors
Highly-pigmented shades give hair artists everything they need to concoct, mix and create endless color palettes. An appointment is required for a hair consultation before any vivid appointments will be taken.

This method is a showstopper. Installation is astonishingly fast and the look is shamelessly seamless. Clients are raving about how Tape-Ins provide length and volume and blend easily into hair. RockIt Studio uses top quality Babe extensions or will consult on other brands to be sure the best product for your hair type is used.

Special Occasion
Special occasion hair is as unique as the woman wearing it! The style could be partially up or even all down. Each style is custom to the person, the type of the event, the hair length, and other factors.

Keratin Straightening
A revolutionary smoothing treatment for all hair types. This treatment contains collagen to help maintain strength and flexibility of the hair. Utilizing salon quality professional products such as Rejuvenol ensure your hair stays healthy and strong.
