Linda said, “Winning the Bay Area Houston Magazine’s Best of the Bay Award for Best Hair Stylist is a dream come true for me and a very big milestone in my life and career. I have had my ad in the Bay Area Houston Magazine for almost a year and it has been incredible. The ad has generated so much new business for me and I have gotten phone calls and visits from friends I haven’t heard from in 20 or 30 years. I just love my ad.” Linda’s ad was created by Pat Patton – Born Wild Innovative Promotions and Brandon Rowan – Bay Area Houston Magazine’s Creative Director. 


The Bay Area Houston Magazine’s Best of the Bay Awards are People’s Choice Awards where thousands of Bay Area Houston residents voted online or mailed their votes. The Best of the Bay award winners are businesses that excel in the midst of strong competition, and that go above and beyond good service.
