Let's just first say that it took us a long time to go through the 2,300-plus nominations we received in the past week. More than 150 hair stylists from more than 80 area salons were nominated. Now it's time to see who is the Bangor-area's favorite hair stylist!

As you can see, the vast majority of stylists had multiple nominations. It's clear based on all the comments we received that your clients really like you.

Here's how we narrowed it down. We took the 25 stylists with the most nominations and put them in a poll below. (They're listed alphabetically by first name.)

Now, all you have to do is vote! You may vote once-per-hour until 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, March 26.

On Monday, March 27, we'll announce the winner of the highly coveted Golden Brush trophy and the $100 that goes with it!

Good luck everybody!
