D-Jay's School of Beauty is one of the few businesses featured here on ABR that still exists elsewhere, such as Mitiello's, Shell, and Winn-Dixie. They even have a website on the Internets. However, the beauty school dropped out of this particular Government Street Location.
Judging by this sign, their move must have happened around the time of laser discs.
(To the sellers/leasers: Here's a tip I learned from
HGTV existing: this property might move faster if you clear out the burned-up garbage from the front area. Just a thought.)
D-Jay's was set up like a bank with a drive-through, but the awning by the door may have been planned just to protect all the newly-did hairdos from Louisiana rains.
I went the wrong way first.
A cat ran away--it may have only had three legs, but it was still very fast. I was alone this visit so I was scared as usual.
The usual sittin' spots (settin' spots?) were in evidence.
Once again, Red Dog, the official beverage of Abandoned Baton Rouge.
Here's a tip to get your kids to behave: show them this picture and tell them you know where a witch lives. Either they behave or it's time for a visit to the witch.

Finally, I went around by the entrance.
Another sitting spot. Also, an abandoned pair of jeans. I was not keen on the possibility of meeting the user of this chair and those pants, especially if that user might not be wearing his or her only pair of pants and might be lurking right in that alcove. So it was time to scrammo once again.
