If you live in Dallas then you can't help but know about D Magazine. It is the authority on the movers and shakers of Dallas. In my opinion, it is the premiere spot to find the most successful businesses in Dallas.

My salon manager, Teresa, handed me an open letter from D Magazine. She had a big smile on her face. I was a little confused as I do not usually receive my mail this way.

Dear Beauty Expert, it began… Yes, that’s me, I said in my head. We would like to honor your business as one of Dallas’ best.

I quickly scanned the letter. That’s when I saw a red square sticker.

It said, D Recommends 2012.

OMG! We had officially made the D List.. Kathy Griffin would be so proud!

I  yelled out to the entire office, “The Beauty Box Salon made D Magazines picks to be in their beauty directory!”

I had no idea just how hard it was to get on this list. Space is very limited for the D Magazine directory. They only accept 350 hair salons, day spa’s, and fitness experts from the entire DFW metroplex. D only gives these to the most notable establishments.

I had to let that sink in. Do you know how many salons are just in the Oak Lawn area? Not to mention day spa’s, medi spa’s, massage therapists? Trust me there are more than 350 just in that small amount of space.

We made it! I am so proud of my team!

This Dallas salon works very hard on doing excellent hair and providing over the top customer service. Getting this from D Magazine really helps reinforce that we are doing all the right things.

A big thanks to all the great clients that have been spreading the word of our little salon in Dallas!

D Magazine, we appreciate this and promise to display our first “D Recommends” decal with pride and respect.
