By artfully blending a passion for color, a fervor for fragrance, and an instinctive understanding of luxury, British-born celebrity colorist and international salon owner Amanda George joins forces with her husband, travel and luxury industry guru Emad Ghobrial, to open a new portal into the olfactory sphere with the launch of ROIL lifestyle.
The impetus to create the brand was initially born in the bathroom of a five-star resort in Europe. Underwhelmed and uninspired by the hotel amenity line, it became abundantly clear to the duo that there was a significant void for upscale products that were both unique and memorable. This defining realization led to the inception of ROIL lifestyle. With years of collective experience in both hospitality and beauty, the partners made a commitment to elevate the industry and introduce a compelling collection.
ROIL (A little bit ROYAL with a touch of OIL) embodies ancient wisdom reinvented for the millennial lifestyle. ROIL is a lifestyle brand with different facets that all harmonize together: travel, style, products, and salons for discerning consumers. As both the industry and society continue to evolve, there is an ever-growing desire for natural formulas that are beneficial to our bodies and the environment. This aspect of the brand reflects ROIL's commitment to aligning beauty with social consciousness.
Amanda George is an internationally acclaimed celebrity hairstylist behind some of the most iconic names and looks in fashion. From Charlize Theron and Victoria Beckham to Kate Hudson and Jenny McCarthy, Amanda is synonymous with perfect hair. A British native, Amanda moved to Los Angeles in the 1990s, where her signature technique and approach made her one of the best-kept secrets in hair. In 2005, she opened her own namesake salon in Beverly Hills, and in 2010 she created her own brand Neil George Hair Care. ROIL is the culmination of her multi-decade career—a combination of products, salons, and lifestyles around the world, embodying all the best that Amanda represents.
Emad Ghobrial is a pioneer of luxury travel and lifestyle products and services, a successful entrepreneur, and industry leader. He began his career in hospitality, including the development of The Peninsula Hotel Global Concierge service and the members-only luxury travel company known as Preferred Group. Now, with the launch of ROIL, Ghobrial takes the next step in a career devoted to finding, curating, and developing the best products and services for discerning clients around the globe.
As a long-time lover of oils, Amanda is renowned in the hair and beauty industry for incorporating healthy hair treatments into her work by custom-blending both locally grown and far-flung oils. Over the years she has become a strong devotee and specialist with this practice. All ROIL products integrate a select group of curated oils, carefully blended into each formula for natural skin and hair benefits. Cold-pressed Rosehip Oil, great for skin on a cellular level, is the secret behind many celebrity glows. Coconut Oil, potent with vitamin E, keeps hair and skin supple with silkiness due to its fatty acid structure. Amla (or Indian Gooseberry) Oil, Amanda’s favorite of all, is one of the strongest forms of Vitamin C on the planet and she has included it in all of her products since 2006; simply put, it’s a miracle oil. Sandalwood is a sophisticated and familiar scent used in India and Asia for thousands of years. It is known for its ability to enhance clarity and focus to its wearer and appeals to both ladies and the gents for being distinctive and unique. Chosen by the creators of ROIL out of a love for yoga and meditation, the blend is sensual, woody, and sexy, yet reserved.
