NoDa area gets a new hair salon

Hair salon She'Luv“A” recently opened in NoDa at North Davidson and 34th streets.

Pronounced “shay-love-a,” the salon offers a variety of services including hair styling, eyelash grooming and eyebrow arches.

The salon specializes in all textures of hair, said owner Layvette Stembridge, who previously owned a salon in Ohio.

And what about the salon's unique name? Stembridge said it was derived from the “love I have for my son Aaron.”

She'Luv“A” is open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Appointments are preferred, but walk-ins are welcome. Details: 704-333-7007.

The Nordstrom E-Bar coffee shop in SouthPark mall is carrying pastries from Myers Park cupcake bakery Polka Dot Bake Shop.

Polka Dot owners Jennifer Chapman and Michelle Miller are baking cupcakes daily and delivering them to E-Bar, which will carry six varieties of pastries. Daily flavors vary but always include vanilla, chocolate and red velvet.

Specialty flavors such as key lime pie and Mexican hot chocolate will rotate throughout the year. Cupcakes are $3.50 each.
