R5 best of the best


Since 1997, Charlotte magazine has dedicated its May issue to the BEST OF THE BEST. We call it The BOBS, and we recognize the city's finest in food and drink, nightlife, entertainment, shopping, mind and body, and more- hundreds of winners in all. And then we throw a huge party! The event offers all of Charlotte a chance to sample the best food and drink as well as mingle with all of the BOB winners. It has become one of the most anticipated parties in the city. Check back here for more information on the 2014 BOB Awards! Voting will begin in January.

Essential Information

Charlotte, NC 28211


We wish we could brag that lauded West Coast hair master Rodger Azadganian (who has styled the locks of Kate Spade, Melinda Gates, and Linda Evangelista) was lured east because he wanted to get his hands on the lovely locks of the women in Charlotte. In truth, his decision to leave behind his lauded 7 Salons in Seattle and open 8 The Salon in the Queen City had more to do with one little lady—his new baby. Whatever the motivation, we’re thrilled to have this sleek new salon on the scene. The cuts and color services here live up to the reputation that precedes them.
