Hello,   I'm Vanessa Rockey

 I started my journey into the hair industry over 20 years ago as a bridal hairstylist and absolutely fell in love with it over the years.  As a Eufora Educator, American Board Certified Master Colorist, & winner of Euforas Haircolorist of the Year 2017, my specialties include customizing colors and styles to work within each guests lifestyles and budget. I believe in keeping up to date in the latest and most effective cutting and coloring techniques. I am certified in several balayage & coloring techniques, Perfectress multi-weft hair extensions, customized perming, & several curly or straight hair cutting systems. My career as a professional Daymaker gives me the opportunity to help women achieve the healthy, gorgeous hair of their dreams. I can't wait to work with you on your own hair journey.

Fun Facts 

When I'm not working behind the chair, on photo shoots, teaching,  or making jewelry for Aloralocks.etsy.com, I'm spending quality time with my husband Brian and our 2 cats Wesley & Fezzik (Yep the characters from the Princess Bride movie). My favorite color is blue. My favorite movie is Princess Bride & Shag.  I love camping and white water rafting. I lived in Malaysia as a child and I love traveling. 


I'm not a fan of Yoga, but I make exceptions for Goat Yoga

My "fur children" Wesley & Fezzik


I live for Glamping!

Camping Hair, Don't Care
