Best Kid’s Hair Cut

<<< Cookie Cutters
It’s time for your child’s first professional haircut, which could be fun or torture, depending on the level of terror when the stylist comes at your kiddo with scissors. Cookie Cutters has a good track record with the little ones. The salon’s brightly colored décor, playroom atmosphere and airplane chairs put children at ease.

Editor's Pick: Best Roof Access

Green Circle Shopping Center
With all the hullabaloo over going green, we love to see buildings that are creatively green: The roof above Dynamic Earth has plenty of plants for a true earthy feel.

Editor's Pick Best Use of Heavy Machinery to Make an Announcement

Branson Regional Airport
When Branson Regional Airport was ready to announce its first carrier, they called a press conference on the tarmac and invited both press and the public. It was a cold day in December, and a crowd gathered in scarves and hats, sipping on hot cocoa and waiting to hear who’d be flying them in and out of Branson. Rather than just telling the everyone about it, airport employees led the group outside to watch an AirTran Boeing 717 land on the runway—a brand-new plane flown in from Atlanta.
