Louis Hudson was born to Thomas and Maggie Hudson, on December 4, 1942, in Cape Girardeau, Missouri; he was the first of two sons born to Maggie Hudson. Louis grew up in Benton Harbor, Michigan, and as his mother proceeded him in death when he was only 3 years of age, Louis was raised by his Grandmother Aranna Donald, together with his younger brother, Earnest.
In the late 1970s, Louis attended cosmetology school in Hollywood, CA, and soon made a career of the profession. By the 1980s, Louis had earned his way into an executive position with the Hollywood Curl Company. During this period of Louis’ life, though his home base continued to be in Southern California, his international travel became extensive, as he opened divisions of Hollywood Curl in London, England, Lagos, Nigeria, and Johannesburg, South Africa. In the 1990s, Louis retired, opened up his own barbershop in Los Angeles, CA, and continued to run barbershops until the time of his recent passing. Simultaneously, Louis enjoyed a lucrative career within the Film & Television Industry for over 35 years, often working alongside his brother Ernie Hudson.
Louis leaves behind to cherish his memory his wife Mildred Jean Hudson, two daughters Dana Potts and Renonda Hudson, son Calvin Hudson, brother Ernie Hudson, nine grandchildren, two great-grandchildren, four nephews and a host of cousins, relatives, and friends.
