    Every August, for the Past Five Years, Elle Magazine’s Fashion and Beauty Editors Have Published a List of America’s Top Salons. In their August 2011 Issue, for the Second Year in a Row, Elle Recognized Houston Hair Salon, The Upper Hand, as one of the Top 100 Salons in America.


    Founded in France in 1945, Elle focuses on women’s health, beauty and fashion. With a monthly circulation of over 1.1 million, Elle is the world’s largest fashion magazine. Elle features 42 international editions in over 60 countries and the Elle websites boast over 1 million monthly visitors and 26 million monthly page views. Elle’s rich history in the fashion and beauty industry has made their annual list of the Top 100 Salons in America highly anticipated and very prestigious.


    Elle’s 2011 list of the Top 100 Salons in America appeared in their August issue that features Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis on the cover. In an article titled “The Best Hair in America 2011”, Elle lists the popular cuts from coast to coast, and tells readers where to get them. Under the heading “United States of Style” Elle provides a state by state listing of their Top 100 Salon in America. For the second straight year, Elle named The Upper Hand as one of their top salons in America. The Upper Hand was the only Houston hair salon that was included on the list. Other Texas hair salons included on Elle’s list include Birds Barbershop and Milk+Honey from Austin as well as Halo and Osgood-O’Neil from Dallas.


    “We are so excited and honored that Elle included The Upper Hand on its Top 100 Salons in America list, for the second year in a row. This is a tribute to our incredibly talented and creative Artistic Team who worked hard all year to make this possible. We are so thankful to be part of such an amazing team and get an opportunity to work in an industry we love,” said Rachel Gower, President of The Upper Hand LLC.
