CoCo North Ltd was founded by two established businesswomen who have a driven passion for what they do.

Katie and Siobhan had the vision and ambition to develop companies that would deliver highly skilled and professional services. Despite still being best friends, they decided to split the business. Up North Hair and Down South Beauty were crafted. Each company delivers highly skilled professional staff and services. Below is a little more information about us all, so you can get to know us before you meet us!!
