Chica's Beauty Salon in Cuero won the "Harlem Shake" video contest. The salon received 752 votes.

The Advocate received 15 "Harlem Shake" videos, but only one had the best moves - Chica's Beauty Salon in Cuero - to win the Advocate's Harlem Shake contest with 752 votes.

Owner MaryJane Henson said she has seen many "Harlem Shake" videos and thought getting her clients and workers to have some fun would be good for morale and camaraderie.

Plus, Henson's shop just turned 10 years old.

"I thought it would be cool," said Henson.

Henson's video stars Nita Scenak, a 93-year-old Cuero woman, who daydreams while sitting at the salon.

Once the bass of the song hits, she's dancing among crazily dressed beauticians, clients and kids. The video exits with her waking up and winking at the camera.

Henson said she used social media to push for people to vote for the video.

"We had just always heard about it ("Harlem Shake") and wanted to do one," she said. "We really enjoyed it."

Henson won two season passes to Schlitterbahn in New Braunfels.
