I'm (pleasantly) surprised to see all the men out in full force voting! That's fantastic! I do hope tho in the future that 'the powers that be' in the upper echelons of the Patch will see the wisdom in doing a separate Babershop/Salon poll in the future. I realize you see (and have heard repeatedly in comments) the point and I hope the Patch does as well. There were some fantastic comments made for Salons of Melrose and they really deserved the recognition. Congratulations to Superior Image! (As well as Avenue Hair Design who obviously would have won the Salon race, if there was one ;) )

The barbers at Superior Image should also be admired for the very successful TOYS FOR TOTS drive they organized last Christmas.

Wow, this is awesome thanks! We 100% agree with Jamie though, next time it should be hair salons and barber shops in two different categories. HUGE congratulations to Avenue hair design too!
