Second location of NOVA Salon Opens Doors in St. Matthews


NOVA Salon officially opened the doors to its second location on June 5 at 4600 Shelbyville Road. This location, named NOVA Salon St. Matthews, is located in the Shelbyville Road Plaza near Joann Fabrics and features 3,500-square-feet of bright, open space with a modern interior and a nod to mid-century style. This design mirrors the award-winning original location, named NOVA Salon Frankfort Avenue, which opened this past January in a renovated, historic facility in the Clifton neighborhood.

Louisville entrepreneur Bennie Pollard, who owns the NOVA Salon brand, said his managing partner and lead designer, Lindsay Reeves, will continue to lead operations at both locations. Pollard said clients of the St. Matthews location can expect the same level of world-class excellence and professionalism that are the noted hallmarks of the NOVA Salon brand.

Both locations will specialize in an array of hair and makeup services, with an emphasis on advanced hair coloring techniques and education for team members, and both will operate during the same hours: 

10 a.m.-7 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday

12-7 p.m. Wednesday

10 a.m.-6 p.m. Friday

9 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday

Closed Sunday and Monday

Pollard is a two-time North American Hairstyling Awards (NAHA) recipient with his own full distribution and consulting company, named Cool Beauty Consulting ( He has owned and operated a successful salon for 25 years. His NOVA Salon Frankfort Avenue location was recognized as one of the top five salon designs in the nation by NAHA in 2017, and Salon Today just featured NOVA Salon in the magazine’s Top 20 salons of 2018.

Throughout continued growth, Pollard will continue to oversee strategic planning as the owner and CEO of the NOVA Salon brand, and believes a learning culture that focuses on the continuing education of team members is key to sustained success. His corporate principles have become the operational model for other businesses across several states and major cities, with Pollard offering lectures and education classes to other salons, designers and small business owners for more than a decade.
