Elle Magazine, in its August 2010 issue, named the Top 100 Salons in America. Elle, the must read for America’s fashion and beauty trendsetters, has published the Top 100 Salons in America list annually for the past four years. In an article entitled, “United States of Style” Elle recommends the nation’s best hair salons to readers who are, “in search of the perfect cut.” The geographically diverse list includes hair salons from all fifty states as well as Puerto Rico and Washington DC. Only four hair salons from Texas received a place on the coveted list: The Upper Hand, Milk + Honey, Elektra and Bird’s Barbershop. Placement on Elle’s Top 100 Salons in America list is the second major award The Upper Hand has received in the last eight months. In December 2009, The Upper Hand was named as Houston’s Best Hair Salon by Citysearch, the popular online community.

“We are so pleased and honored that Elle included The Upper Hand Salons on its Top 100 Salons in America list. We have had such an amazing year. In December, Citysearch recognized The Upper Hand as Houston’s Best Hair Salon…and now Elle. We are so thankful for our incredibly talented and creative Artistic Team who have made this all possible,” said Rachel Gower, President of The Upper Hand.
