Who are the best hairstylists in the Kalamazoo area?  After nearly 3,000 votes, the results are in for your favorite hairstylists in Southwest Michigan.

In an effort to show local hairstylists some love for National Hairstylist Day, April 25th, we asked you to nominate and then vote for your favorite hairstylists from South Haven to Kalamazoo.  In fact, we received nominations from Allegan, Kalamazoo, Van Buren, Branch, Berrien, Cass, Calhoun, and St. Joseph counties.  Did you vote for the person that makes you look good?  Less than 1.5% of the votes separated the #1, #2, and #3 hairstylists this year.  They cut it close this year. Scroll down to see the results of this year's poll.
