Rocco “Rocky” Vitelli is born in Toronto, Canada, to Italian immigrants.

Toronto-based Rocky Vitelli has more than a few titles and awards under his belt.


In his 25 years of hairstyling experience, Vitelli has garnered various awards in North America, is a key platform artist and international educator for Farouk Systems, Inc., and serves as artistic director for Locale J Salon in Ontario.


Vitelli can be spotted getting inspired and creating show-stopping styles for fashion weeks in New York and Toronto, and behind-the-scenes of Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants.


The well-versed stylist believes hair can be a direct influence on the success of an overall look. We couldn’t agree more. See his journey to success!
