Welcome to Rock Paper Hair!  

Cheers to finding your new hairstylist!


It's so nice to meet you!

 I’m Alannah Zilkowsky, born and raised in Sherwood Park and now proud owner of RP Self Centre, the women's entrepreneur collective that my salon Rock Paper Hair is located iN

As a busy business owner, I know how important it is to have those greys blended away while  keeping up with the latest modern hair colours and trends. Ive designed my private studio so you can bring your laptop and catch up on emails, or enjoy some calm, relaxing downtime!

I respect your time

I've been a stylist for 13 years and have won over a dozen provincial and national awards, was the trainer for Skills Team Alberta, and am a bronze level competition judge.


With my experience of cutting live on stage, in front of hundreds of people with the clock counting down, I know how important every minute of time is - Most colour services are 2.5 hours long, so you still have time to enjoy a glass of wine in your backyard after!


Always Learning Through Travel

I specialize in modern grey coverage with a focus on efficient, time conscious services. I take pride in the fact that I travel internationally for advanced colour formulation classes at least twice annually. 

I often channel my inner mermaid, travelling to the ocean whenever I can to scuba dive with the fish and turtles! I have been to 37 countries on 6 continents and love planning my next adventure.


Whether it's a cruise through Italy, an all inclusive in Mexico or camping in the mountains, my favourite topic of conversation is always hearing about my clients latest travel plans and daydreaming along with them!

Dog Mum and Beekeeper

When I am not in the salon, I love being outdoors in my garden, where I have two backyard beehives! My two rescue german shepard mixes, Snoopy and Sahara love hanging by the fire after a day outside.

Giving Back

I am passionate about sharing my skills and I am a volunteer with Hair Aid - where I travel to the philippines to teach women basic haircutting skills.
