Anthony, Teresa and Marie are Style/Creative Directors at Rokk Ebony hair salon and have launched a new range of affordable haircare for three different hair types.
Anthony is the man behind ‘Curl’ and he chatted with Beauty and Lace about the latest trends for curly haired girls:
What made you decide to bring out your own range of Rokk Ebony hair products?
We wanted to create a hair care collection containing true salon formulas, that meet the need of professional hairstylists and is also conveniently purchased during your weekly shop.
What makes these hair products different to regular salon products?
The Rokk Ebony hair care range is a result of months of trialing, testing (on us, not animals!!) and perfecting and is a complete solution to achieving the salon look at home.
Each product has exclusive hints and tips so customers can be confident that they are getting the very best advice for optimal use.
We have also ensured the entire range contains colour safe technology which protects your colour between salon visits. Marie, Teresa and myself really were the guinea-pigs for this range, and it definitely gets out seal of approval.
What kind of curls are in right now?
This Summer it is all about the wave. Worn naturally unstructured, loose and effortlessly beautiful; it is this seasons must-have look.

For frizzy and unmanageable curls, what is the best strategy?
Frizzy and unmanageable curls need moisture to tame them. The Rokk Ebony Curl Range offers superior conditioning properties designed to lock in moisture while enhancing natural curl and eliminating frizz.
The Rokk Ebony Curl Forming Shaper has a non crunch formula, enhanced with minerals designed to soften thick, rebellious hair.
For curly hair, does having a cut with thinning scissors help with additional bulk?
Personally I do not recommend using thinning scissors on natural curls as I find they break curl formation, resulting in frizz.
Instead, I apply free hand cutting techniques such as ‘twist cutting’ and ‘carving’ which enable me to remove bulk and create shape without causing unmanageable fly-aways.
Why would you recommend Rokk Ebony Curl products for curly hair?
The Rokk Ebony Curl Range has been designed specifically for natural curl, delivering the moisture required for superior curl definition. We have created products for both thick and fine curls, ensuring both hair types can achieve fantastic results.
What curly hair upstyles will be in fashion for summer?
This Summer curly hair is being worn up loose and unstructured. Either on the beach or on the red carpet, when worn up your curls should look effortlessly styled for a modern look. The Rokk Ebony UV Gloss Coat is a fantastic finishing product curls as it reflects light giving super sexy shiny curls every time AND protects from the sun.
Which curly haired celebrities are the most copied at the moment?
Curls and waves are HUGE in celebrity world, Rhianna had an amazing curly look at the American Music Awards which has sparked a massive following.
Sarah Jessica-Parker has encouraged thousands of girls to embrace their curl, and we also get a lot of requests to style sexy waves as worn by supermodel Gisele.
