We recently asked Northern Echo readers who their favourite hair stylist was in the North East - and they didn't disappoint. Who is your favourite?

There's always a reputation that hairdressers have no matter how old you get. Not only do they make your hair look fabulous, they're always up for a catch-up and chat, and can become good friends.

Often, clients return to the same hairdresser each time and strike up a favourite.

In this spirit, we gave our readers an opportunity to shout out their favourite hairstylist in the region for their talented work.

Here are just a few if the stylists mentioned by Northern Echo readers.

One of the many hairdressers earning recognition was Jodie Stott of Jodie Stott Hairdressing, whom reader Amy Smith proudly picked.
