Houston, TX (PRWEB) October 01, 2013
Founded in 1991 by Linda Wells, Allure Magazine is a prominent woman’s beauty monthly published by Conde Nast in New York City. With a monthly circulation of over one million, Allure is widely regarded as a major force in woman’s beauty, fashion and health industries. Allure is considered to be one of the first publications to address the health risks associated with silicone breast implants and their willingness to take on numerous controversial issues has helped the magazine win several awards from the American Academy of Dermatology and the Skin Cancer Foundation.
Allure launched their signature Best of Beauty Awards program fourteen years ago to assist readers with the vast selection of makeup, skin care and hair care products that are available in the market place. To help eliminate bias, Allure’s Beauty Awards are selected by their editors, not the advertising department, and Allure readers also have a say in which products win. Allure’s first Best of Beauty Awards was so popular that it became an annual event and in 2010 the magazine developed an iPhone app to assist readers in finding the award winners.
Allure’s Best of the Best Awards for America’s top beauty services lists the nation’s premiere hair salons and service providers. Allure lists winners in the top thirteen cities including Houston, New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco. Awards categories include best haircut, hair color, blowout, nails, facial, massage, brows and waxing. Allure named Mandy Zuniga, of Houston hair salon The Upper Hand, the best stylist for a haircut in Houston and added…"this maven removes bulk, not length."
“We are so excited for Mandy. She is highly creative and an incredible stylist who really understands her clients. We are so fortunate to have her at The Upper Hand,” said Rachel Gower, President of The Upper Hand LLC in Houston.
