Phillip Murrell by Arnold Wayne Jones

Some Realtors are known as buyers’ agents, some as sellers’; some do only high-end condos in urban centers, others single-family detached in exclusive  neighborhoods. But Phillip Murrell’s specialty is something different: Serving all the needs of his clients. From 4,000-square-foot mansions in Lake Highlands to quaint Cape Cods in the M Streets to Uptown duplexes, Murrell does it all, and with a smile. Active with the Black Tie Dinner, the greatest endorsement of his effectiveness — aside from readers voting him their favorite — is how many referrals he gets from all his friends.

Pedicure

Tyson Nguyen by Arnold Wayne Jones

Ever since he and his family emigrated to the U.S. from Vietnam 12 years ago, Tyson Nguyen has called Dallas home … and he loves it here. And, it turns out, Dallas loves him, too. That’s why his clients voted Nguyen the top guy to give a manicure-pedicure in the Metroplex. And if anybody knows a good mani-pedi place, it’s the gays. “Short and shiny!” Nguyen says is the preferred look of most of his clientele, and with his speed, gentleness and smile, they always get what they want. He’s been at Onyx Nail Bar for three years of his decade doing mani-pedis, and if Nguyen weren’t enough of a draw, the salon also has a fully stocked bar for their guests. Nothing like sitting back for short and shiny with a cocktail.

It’s a classic riddle: When there are only two barbers in town — one messy and with a bad haircut, one fastidious and with a flawless trim — which one do you go to? Why, the messy one of course: He’s the one who cut the other guy’s hair … the tidy one cut his. Of course, Dallas Voice readers had more than two barbers to choose from in selecting their favorite hair stylist, and Landon Starnes impressed the most people. it’s not that he’s messy or has a bad haircut — indeed, he’s put together with a graceful elegance. And it’s being able to share that skill with his clients, to make them look as good as they can, that no doubt scored him points and fans.
