The fan-nominated awards offer 12 categories including best barbershop, church, community leader, high school, and choir. According to radio, talk show and Family Feud host Steve Harvey, "I've been walking down red carpets for so many years, getting awards. I've been very fortunate. I think recognizing the common man for their hard work is a great thing."

Davon Kelly gratefully acknowledges the hard work of the barbers and the generosity of the community, "I'd like to thank the community and everyone who voted for My Barber's Lounge. From its inception, My Barber's Lounge has been an upscale neighborhood barbershop where you can get a great cut and have good conversation." Kelly's vision for My Barber's Lounge honors the memories of the childhood experiences shared with his father at the neighborhood barbershop.
