Hairdressers do more than cut hair. They are artists, chemists, mathematicians, therapists and more. As we learned at the start of the pandemic (and after a few disastrous “I’ll do it myself” attempts), they are essential.

This week, in honor of National Hairstylist Appreciation Day on April 25, we’ve rounded up the relevant Best of the Capital Region 2022 categories. There’s a lot of competition in these categories — 545 people were nominated in the only Best Hairstylist/Barber category.
