At Sean Rocco Salon, our top priority is making sure you love your hair.
Founded in 2015 by Sean and Mark, our main goal was to bring you a dedicated staff committed to meeting your hair needs.
What is the old adage? "
A picture is worth a thousand words."
As you can see below, Sean's obsession with hair began at an extremely young age, who knew his sister would be his first client. Thanks to his mother for her innate ability to style hair, Sean would become a student at a young age and be enamored with a makeover.

Sean's journey in the beauty industry began at one of Atlanta's Premier salons, where he would hone his technical skills. While in Atlanta, he would be recognized as one of Atlanta's top stylists by Atlanta Magazine.
Through the years, his editorial/photo work would be featured in publications such as American Salon and Salon Today, showcasing his keen eye for beauty.
For Mark, becoming a hairdresser was a journey, one that would follow after obtaining a graduates degree and a previous career. His desire to become a hairdresser was deep rooted and would inevitably surface. He made a leap of faith and has never looked back. While gaining the necessary training in beauty school, he began assisting at one of Atlanta's top salons, where he would become one of the their best stylists, colorists and employees. Mark would build his foundation and knowledge of photo-styling in Atlanta and apply it to his next career phase in Los Angeles.
After moving to Los Angeles, Mark attended The Makeup Designory where he studied beauty makeup as well as became a journeyman in prosthetic application. After furthering his education, he would begin marketing himself as a freelance stylist for the media industry. Over the next 10 years in Los Angeles, he worked with television shows like, the soap opera "Days of Our Lives", the reality show "American Idol", “The Insiders List”, and many infomercials, as well as, maintained a client base at a West Hollywood salon.
Mark’s character can be described as charismatic, loyal, dedicated, caring and professional which manifested in the relationships he has built with clients over many years. Whether styling hair for a television production or an individual in the salon, it is the end result that matters to Mark, that is, beautiful and camera ready hair. Mark is dedicated to the beauty industry and would love to pass along his knowledge to the next generation of stylists, so opening a hair salon in Charlotte is his current career path.
It's clear that Sean would refocus his career toward the television industry after moving to Los Angeles. He would train at the Makeup Designory and On Set Productions before landing his first television show working with key hairstylist Dean Banowetz on Season 3 of "American Idol". This experience led him to become the key hairstylist on the Nationally Syndicated Emmy Award-Winning Entertainment News Show 'EXTRA' for the next 10 years. During his time on the show, he styled the host/talent and celebrity guests for 'EXTRA' daily show, as well as, created Red Carpet Looks for the talent during awards season.
