LEXINGTON BARBER COLLEGE was founded in April, 1962 and was originally located in downtown Lexington. Initially known as The Lexington Barber College, the facility was purchased entirely by Mr. Roger L. Bailey in 1967. In 1982 the College was moved to Woodhill Center and the name was changed to BAILEY’S BARBER COLLEGE, INC. in 1985. A new facility was opened in December 1998, at 1489 Alexandria Drive, in Lexington; in which we stayed at this location for 10 years. In June, 2009, BAILEY’S/LEXINGTON BARBER COLLEGE moved to a new facility on N. Limestone St. in Lexington.
