The ladies of Bailey’s and Bailey himself
‘“We want something cool where we look fly!’” So says Belinda Hudson (far right), one of the crew at the newly-opened salon named Bailey’s near the juncture of Elm and McGee streets. The women are, from left to right, Amanda Julian, a stylist and mother of three; Ragan Hall, an esthetician and single mom who wants us to put emphasis on the word ‘single’; Kim Valla, a stylist who moonlights as a promotional model for a beer company; and Belinda Hudson, the one with the mouth. The guy in the shot is salon owner John Bailey, who assures us that the place was a complete mess before he renovated it. The third day of business is going as well as expected at Bailey’s, a day which included a visit by YES! Weekly publisher Charles Womack, who says he’s finally found a regular stylist.
