our history

The history of 320 South Elm

The building that now houses Salon bailey’s was built in the late 1860’s as part of 2 buildings that made up a factory that made mantles for fireplaces during an era when people had fireplaces in all their rooms as a source of heat.

After many incarnations, Bill Heroy purchased the building in the 1970’s. He converted it into a photography studio and an apartment for him and his wife. Bill later moved out of the building’s apartment, as he and his wife began a family with 3 boys and wanted a more suitable environment to raise his children.

In 2003 a fire destroyed the building next door and 320 South Elm had to be gutted because of damages sustained in this fire.

Salon bailey’s signed a lease with Bill Heroy in July 2005 and created a vision for a salon along with the help of Interior Design Firm, Abode, owned by Jeff Woodburn, and Smith Architecture, owned by Wayne Smith.  7 months later on January 23, 2006 Salon bailey’s opened its doors, giving great hair and skin experiences to all of Greensboro and the surrounding areas.

Salon bailey’s is proud to have some of the best stylists in the area – including John Bailey, Terri Maley, Katie Engebretson, Cassie Norman, and Brandi Gosnell with a combined 50 plus years of experience with cutting, color, corrective color styling and styling for weddings.  Salon bailey’s is a full service salon offering the most up-to-date styles to suit any face shape, desire or occasion.
