Gold Winner Andrew Quinn Chapman, AQC Salon
Silver Winner Lindsay Algee, Tidal Hair Lounge
Bronze Winner Malyssa Burn, Interlude SpaWhen Andrew Quinn Chapman left what he describes as “factory salons” seven years ago to launch his own space, it felt like a lot was on the line: “For a time my family wasn’t sure how I was going to turn out,” he told The Coast the last time he won Best Hairstylist, back in 2016. Luckily for him, he turned out to be one of the best hairstylists in the city, returning to gold status after two years away from the crown. The luxe space and collaborative attitude he’s become known for surely all help his case—as does the fact that he often cuts coifs for entire families.
