Digital Color Bar
Digital Hair & Scalp Profiler
From being greeted by Rolfsbot, the first ever robotic technology in the professional beauty industry, receiving color services at the largest digital art of color bar, and being inspired by fashion video walls showcasing the latest fashion and beauty events and our philanthropic partnerships, to the Magic Mirror, which utilizes augmented reality to digitally transform a client’s look before their eyes, ROLFS technology elevates the salon experience on every level.
Nature inspires us and reminds us what true beauty is all about. Beauty is not just one thing, it is all encompassing. ROLFS celebrates nature and sustainability, featuring custom flooring made out of paper and recycled woods from around the world, custom glass with real flowers embedded into it, and an indoor garden.
At ROLFS, we are deeply committed to the personal and professional development of our team, enabling them to enjoy a fulfilling, happy, healthy and financially rewarding career.
Our book club plays an important role in the continuous education and growth of our team members, and enables them to create an intelligent, kind and elevated beauty experience for each and everyone of our clients.
We come together monthly to share what we have learned from the books we have read together, our individual perspective and point of view. It is most joyful, fulfilling and inspiring to watch each other grow both personally and professionally.

Vincent Van Goh was a Dutch artists whose art was known for the striking colors, empathetic brush work, and contoured forms of his work that powerfully influenced the current of expressionism in modern art.
Renoir was far more complex and thoughtful in his paintings than he was assumed. He created a monumental, classically inspiring style that influenced many artists.
The world of ROLFS is filled with playfulness, confidence, intelligence and humor. It is a place that brings laughter and friendship, adventure and harmony. It’s the enchanting light of the Sedona desert and the sparkle of the rising sun over the skyscrapers of Manhattan. The world of ROLFS is filled with the excitement and glamour of being in the front row of a Paris fashion show, the foreign comfort of a London cab, and the history and mystery in the cobblestone streets of Rome. It’s the quiet thrill of holding hands with a new love, a warm breeze and peaceful hammock, and the stunning beauty of a classic yacht bound for Capri. It’s a world where the abstract colorfulness of Kandinsky live alongside the painterly masterpieces of Van Gogh and enduring perfection in exquisite fashion photography. It’s the precise notes in classical symphony and the raw power in a rock n’ roll riff. ROLFS is a world of freshness and hope and timeless tradition, where close friends, inner peace and artistic expression are held dear, where being unique, graceful, and true to yourself are valued above all else. It is a world of creativity and passion that stands for honesty, respect and friendships.
