Sally Hayes is Holden's very attractive ex-girlfriend. He considers her stupid, possibly because she has an affected, pseudo-sophisticated manner. She is very attractive, and her main motivation is to be young and pretty, which is why Holden calls her"the queen of phonies." Holden is both attracted and repelled by Sally's beauty.
