about the owner

Born in Senegal, West Africa – Soukay Harrell has spent a lifetime dedicated to her craft. In high school, her and her friends would go back and forth braiding each other’s hair and passionately did so as a hobby until she came to America in 2001. Learning that she could make a living with her talents, she started working in her cousin’s beauty salon until she could afford to start a booth of her own in 2008. In 2011, she opened the doors to her very own salon, and what we have come to know today as Creative Stylz! Due to her hard work, passion, and amazing clientele; she was able to upgrade her salon to a much bigger and more beautiful space in 2019. Today, Soukay continues to pursue this art form and welcomes all hairstyles and requests. 

Aside from braiding, Soukay also prides herself in selling her own batch of Shea Butter shipped directly from Senegal. This comes in raw form and brings life back to dry hair and skin! Call now to get your own authentic bottle of West African Shea Butter, put together personally by Soukay with love.
