For 44 years, Betty Hughes-Gillespie, has served her community and the clients of Coiffures by Betty Hughes, a salon on North Wilson Road.
In December, Hughes-Gillespie retired after almost 50 years as a hairdresser.
She’s originally from Metcalfe County and knew she wanted to be a hairdresser since she was a little girl. She would sit on her dad’s knees and work on his hair. He would always tell her she was going to be a teacher, but she was determined to be a hairdresser.
