SoK Salon on Kirby and Hot Tops Hair Studio Provide Invaluable Support to The Women’s Home

Houston is a giving community and the local businesses in our town step up to the plate time and time again. At The Women’s Home, we’ve found that, no matter the hardships and trauma a woman has been through, she still wants to feel good about herself – mentally and physically. And sometimes, feeling good about how you look externally can be just the boost needed to continue the hard work internally.

The Women’s Home is proud to call two fabulous Houston salons partners and friends. Both have made meaningful contributions, each in very different ways, and their valued support is helping to change lives. TWH would like to take this opportunity to thank SoK Salon on Kirby and Hot Tops Hair Studio in Montrose for taking notice of the needs in our community and stepping up to the plate to make a difference. We appreciate you more than you will ever know!

Please take a moment to read more about the generosity of these two salons and remember to support those businesses that support your community!

SoK Salon on Kirby (2615 Southwest Frwy, Suite 200)

SoK Salon on Kirby, owned by Alden Clark, is made up of a group of creative and inspiring stylists who are passionate about hair and intent on providing the best in customer service. Lucky for us, Alden and his team are also passionate about helping their community, and patrons of this fabulous salon can feel beautiful inside and out knowing that payment for services rendered help SoK continue to “pay it forward”. In addition to providing beauty supplies to our residents, SoK designated The Women’s Home as the benefited charity at their local 2013 “One Billion Rising” event (to help end violence against women and girls), styled the volunteer models the past two years at our annual reNew and reDux Fashion Show, and sponsored our most recent Awards Banquet. To say they are a valued supporter would be a massive understatement. SoK is not just a partner, they play an integral role in helping TWH provide the programming necessary to change lives. To find out more about SoK and their services, visit their website at or give them a call at 713-523-7521.

Hot Tops Hair Studio (3603 Montrose Blvd.)

Hot Tops owner, Rachael Shakespeare, and her fellow stylists at Hot Tops Hair Studio in Montrose were looking for a way to give back through services for quite some time. When an employee of TWH was referred to stylist D’Anna Davis for a color and cut, the door was opened and within two weeks residents at TWH were receiving gorgeous free haircuts from one of our newest volunteer partners! Every other Sunday, the stylists at Hot Tops come in on their day off to provide this very special service to women who, in many cases, have never received such a relaxing and self-esteem-building gift. This generous service is also especially important to our residents preparing to search for jobs.

We are thrilled to have Hot Tops Hair Studio as one of our newest partners and friends, and we hope to continue this very important relationship for years to come! Looking for a hip new color and/or cut in the Montrose area, contact Hot Tops at 713-526-1440.
