My good friend, and fabulous make-up artist to the stars, Billy B has returned home to Aberdeen, MS to buy and restore a bunch of amazing historic bungalows and manions to their former Southern Belle glory.
Fellow Mississippian and renowned celeb hairstylist Syd Curry has followed suit and the two are set to bring big city beauty to this sleepy enclave when they open their flagship store, Billy & Syd, in downtown Aberdeen in December.
The joint venture is located at 100 W Canal Street, steps away from historic downtown Aberdeen, Mississippi in a charming turn-of-the-century, converted Victorian cottage. The salon will feature the full line of billybBEAUTY products as well as offering a full range of hair salon services from the Syd Curry Salon. This shared space will also feature many iconic images and media from the accomplished careers of both Billy and Syd.
Syd and Billy have collaborated professionally for the last 20 years, working together on some of the most high profile celebrities of our time. It was Syd and Billy that created the look for Mariah Carey’s “wedding of the Decade” to Tommy Mottola, as well as in her music videos “Dream Lover” and “Hero.” Today, they are both “Celebrity Stylemakers” on the popular website WeLoveBeauty.com.
Billy and Syd currently reside part-time in Aberdeen, Mississippi, where both are restoring homes on the National Register of Historic Places. When not in Aberdeen, they continue to work as freelance artists in New York City and Hollywood, California.
