The salon, tasked with keeping Bobcats in style for 33 years, is known for its popular haircut happy hour,.

Janaa Chrystal, the owner of the salon, began working as a stylist at the salon while attending Southwest Texas State University in 1982. Three years later, Chrystal purchased San Marcos Hair Company. As a young entrepreneur, Chrystal made it her goal to give San Marcos residents the best hair in town.

Chrystal said she is excited over her salon receiving the award and said the title had been awarded many years ago.

The success of San Marcos Hair Company can be attributed to the location, the laid-back atmosphere, the quality and the low prices.

“We’ve had our happy hour for years and it is our way of giving back to the community,” Chrystal said. “Sometimes (people) need a haircut and may not have the money, so it comes in handy for students as well.”
