Michael Todd is putting a first-place award from this weekend's Beauty Meets Beast Hair Expo on the trophy shelf at his salon.
Judged on performance, showmanship, quality and speed, Todd, owner of Exclusive Kuts at 205 North Star Drive, took first place for fastest fade at the Corpus Christi contest.
"It means a lot to me as a stylist to finally be able to put a trophy on the wall," Todd said.
The trophy is the first he has earned and just one piece to the puzzle.
"The trophy is just something to show," he said.
The biggest piece he wants to show are the people who come in, allow him to cut their hair and work on his skills.
Todd said the recognition from the expo is a reflection of his clients.
"This is for them to let them know they come somewhere important," he said. "There's only one way to be, and that's Exclusive."
