Kelly Bileddo is the founder and owner of Salon Antebellum. After 10 years of working in the beauty industry, Bileddo took a daunting leap into business ownership in January of 2012. After working for others, Kelly knew that the key to success as an artist was through education, determination, personality, and a professional business plan. Kelly’s success has been built with the systems that Sexy Hair proudly stands behind. Kelly started as an educator for Sexy Hair in 2007 and quickly moved into management in 2008. In January 2010, Kelly became a Master Artist for Sexy Hair. She is now one of only 8 International Artists in the WORLD for Sexy Hair and travels the globe teaching others and inspiring artists. She is honored to be a part of growing the amazing company that helped her own career take a leap forward. Since then, she has been on the road touring with “Sexy Rocks” which collaborates art, motivation and inspiration to other artists. Kelly enjoys performing at Beauty Shows across the nation as well as dabbling in photo shoots in the St. Louis region. This year Kelly was one of few chosen to style hair at the Betsey Johnson Lifetime Acheivement runway show at New York Fashion week. Bileddo started motherhood at a very young age so she was determined to make something of herself, letting other young women know that you can make anything happen when you put your heart and mind to it. Her goal was to show the public that there is more to our career as artists than just being a “hairdresser.” There is a foundation of business behind each artist and true love for what they create. Kelly dreamt of building a staff that believes in the advocacy of our industry, not only growing themselves, but their clients. By engaging in education for our guests, they feel confident to replicate what they love and see when they walk out the door. Kelly believes in setting goals and making them happen. In February 2014, Bileddo graduated From Sam Brown’s Barber Institute in hopes to one day open a barber shop and expand into an accessory line for hairdressers. “You choose your destiny in this industry. What is life if you are not living it? Anything can be achieved through hard work, high heels, and lipstick.”
