Rosslyn Rowe, Hair Care Expert and Stylist

Rosslyn RoweThe Hair Healer and Maintainer

Rosslyn C. Rowe, affectionately known as “Cookie” to friends and clients, uses her outstanding talent as a hairstylist and her business savvy as the owner of Salon 8227, LLC (formerly known as Alanni Hair Designs, Inc.) in Silver Spring, MD to minister to her clients and staff with a Christ-centered approach. This Washington, DC native considers Salon 8227 to be more than a salon. She has worked passionately to make it a safe space for people and a haven from the storms that we face in life. As an artist, she has a similar zeal for hair care. She has made maintaining healthy hair, rather than just an attractive hairstyle, a guiding principle of Salon 8227’s hair philosophy.

Rosslyn has an eclectic experience in her education and throughout her professional career. At Chamberlain Vocational High School in Washington, DC, Rosslyn majored in cosmetology. She went on to teach at Scanners International Beauty School, in addition to her work as a platform artist for Avlon Industries (Affirm/ Keracare) and as a hairstylist at Natural Motion Hair Salon. Rosslyn broadened her education at two premier academies in London, England- Jingles Academy and the world-renowned Vidal Sassoon School of Beauty. Prior to the launch of Alanni Hair Designs, Inc. in 1983, Rosslyn returned to the states to work the Hair Biz International.

The cutting edge of hair design is exactly where Rosslyn feels most comfortable. She is a highly soughtafter artist and entrepreneur, who runs a very successful and thriving business from her Silver Spring location. She has distinguished herself and developed her creativity by traveling to add international and multicultural dimensions to her art, broadening her understanding of various trends and techniques.

Exposure in the world of celebrity followed naturally from Rosslyn’s reputation as an outstanding hairstylist. Rosslyn’s projects have included working with the Congressional Black Caucus Fashion Show, the Women of Vision Awards Gala, BET’s Tavis Smiley Show, and much of Hollywood including, Brenda Russell, Chante Moore, Marva Hicks, Nia Long, Dottie Jones, Jennifer Holliday, Richard Smallwood, Vanessa Bell Armstrong, Dr. Sharon Ottey, Dorothy Norwood, George Faison, DC Area news anchors, Andrea Roane, and Karen Gray Houston, and Cleveland, Ohio News Anchor Danita Harris.

In 2013 Rosslyn’s 30+ years of experience offered her the opportunity to share her hair care knowledge with other professionals and potential clients through blogging for one of the area’s largest radio station’s online community. Bi-weekly on WHUR.com, Rosslyn is featured discussing anything from natural hair care to color techniques, sharing her experience with others.

The close relationship that develops between client and stylist has allowed Rosslyn to transcend the world of beauty in and of itself. Rosslyn has employed her talent to cultivate a Christian ministry that touches everyone who enters through the doorway of Salon 8227 and everyone in the surrounding community.
