" S o c o r r a S t o k e s.... hairdresser, colleague and friend. Her passion and drive is reflected in her masterpieces. Her creativity is infectious and I am humbled to work alongside her picking up new ideas. Socorra is constantly updating her skill set in the workplace, resulting in a strong client base. Clients thrive in her attitude, they leave happy and return hungry for Socorra's trend setting styles. Not only is Socorra my number one for amazing locks, she is also someone I can always rely on for her quirky sense of style, charm & wit. She's a dream to be around and I am honoured to have met her. x"

"I was a serial hairdresser swapper until I found Socorra! I came across her hair stylist page on Instagram and after seeing some of her work I wanted her to do my hair straight the way. The salon is so relaxed and friendly and from booking the first appointment. I felt like I'd known Socorra for years. She interprets the inspiration I turn up with at every appointment into exactly what I want. I've never loved my hair so much and it's never been in such good condition and that's all thanks to Socorra"

"Socorra is so much more than a very talented hair stylist and colour technician. I've been going to Socorra for years now and wouldn't think of getting my hair cut anywhere else! She knows exactly how to manage me and my hair moods. We have great chats too which is a bonus. I have seen Socorra blossom from a very young stylist into the talented successful business woman and stylist she is today."

"Socorra did mine and my bridesmaids' hair for my wedding last August. She truly has a natural talent with such creative flair and imagination. Being so indecisive I went with a vague idea but she worked her magic and made me look amazing and feel like a princess! Super professional and a lovely girl, I honestly couldn't recommend her enough... especially on a day as big as your wedding day! Thank you Socorra xxx

"Weddings are a stressful time especially when it comes to the morning of your wedding. Socorra took away all that stress so I could sit back, relax & thoroughly enjoy the morning with my mum and bridesmaids. She is so experienced and creative, she knew exactly what suited all our different hair types. Socorra not only made me feel like a million dollars on the day but also my three Bridesmaids, Mum and Aunty. Everyone was so happy with their very own tailored up do and the professional service they received. I cannot recommend the incredibly talented Socorra Stokes enough, she played a huge part of the day making it stress free from start to finish."

"I have known Socorra since she was the Saturday girl sweeping up hair and making the tea! Always friendly and eager to learn, she progressed rapidly and soon took over doing my hair as my stylist. She's been doing my colour and cuts ever since. I have had various up dos throughout the years for special occasions - always carefully considered with outfit choice and the occasion. I've never been disappointed and always had loads of compliments by other guests. Socorra has always been a conscientious and hard working, eager to create a style that you are happy with and always very friendly."
