Rokkebony: Habitat

Working in collaboration, hairdresser Adam Isles and colourist Charlene Fernandez (both at Rokkebony salon in Melbourne Australia) present hair with attitude. Brimming with confidence, these looks are expressive and bold. The contrasts of combining underlying pigments and natural roots with added, complementary colour are cleverly done. We love it!

Adam and Charlene tell us: “The girls of the Melbourne art scene have inspired us. These girls are free and expressive and it is clear to see the impression that the art world has made to their bespoke styles.

Understated raw hair with attitude. Colours that are paired back to the raw natural pigments but executed with a strong bold contrast. This combination of underlying pigments, natural roots and complimentary colours bring an element of beauty to the unusual placement these contrasting areas. The term ‘colour contouring’ is taken to the extreme, highlighting quite obviously where we would like the eye to go.
“Utilising the natural hair directions and textures have allowed each look and shape to be perfectly moulded and to convey a fresh lived in look. Graphic shapes have been softened with a natural organic finish. These girls live! So rather than divert from their individual beauty we chose to explore and celebrate it.”
