102|north is a boutique hair salon in downtown Elon, just across Williamson Avenue from campus. Our renovated space has been an integral part of downtown Elon since 1891, when it opened as the town’s first Post Office. We designed our space with a minimal and modern aesthetic that highlights the original beauty of our historic building.
102|north was created with a very specific vision: to customize beautiful hair in a peaceful and laid-back setting.
102|north is home to three experienced, independent stylists with over 30 years of industry experience.
Each stylist manages their own services, pricing and booking requests and their booking links can be found in the brief biographies below. If you are a new client who knows which stylist you want to book with, or a returning client, please book directly through the correct link. If you are a new client with no stylist preference, please fill out the booking intake form below.
We specialize in cut and color and pride ourselves in delivering the highest quality, with every detail attended to. We care about you, your hair and your experience, and we want every client to leave looking and feeling their absolute best!
Shelley grew up by Lake Norman, N.C., with a natural passion for hair. Led by her interests in the arts, she attended East Carolina University, where she received her B.A. in Theatre in 2004. Following graduation, Shelley moved to NYC to pursue her first love: the art of hair. She worked at a salon in the West Village and received her cosmetology license from the Aveda Institute, NYC, in 2006. She’s so grateful for the education and exposure she received in the hair industry during that time.
Love and family brought her back to N.C., where she worked at an Aveda concept salon for 11 years. She’s spent the last four years working independently, raising her babies, and enjoying continuing education in both cut and color.
Shelley is thrilled to be opening her dream space doing what she loves in the town that has stolen her and her family’s heart. She specializes in natural sun-kissed blondes, melted dimensional brunettes, long layered variations, and detailed, modern bobs. She can’t wait to connect with you and make your hair goals a reality!
Teighla is a North Carolina native who grew up in Burlington, N.C. She graduated from the Aveda Institute in Chapel Hill and has over ten years of experience behind the chair. She is versatile in cut and color trends as well as styling and makeup. She specializes in lived-in highlights, hair painting, and natural color, with a flair for soft layers and textured bobs.
The connection and trust Teighla has with her clients is what she is most passionate about. She believes there is nothing more rewarding than using her craft to reflect her client’s natural beauty, making them feel seen + beautiful.
When she’s not at the salon, you can likely catch her grabbing an iced latte from a local coffee shop or hanging with her family! She would love to chat with you about your hair goals + make them a reality!
Kaila grew up with a huge love for fashion, beauty and the arts and knew she would pursue a career in that direction. Once in the industry, she quickly realized hairdressing was her dream job. In her years as a makeup artist she saw just how important making people feel beautiful and confident was. The ever-changing hair industry is just another way she gets to combine her love for design and art.
Kaila received her cosmetology license at Leon’s Beauty School in Greensboro and completed the apprenticeship program at Local Honey Salon. There, she trained under their Master Stylist and feels so lucky for the training and continuing education she received during those years. After three awesome years in Greensboro behind the chair, she is ready to get back closer to home and family to start her career at 102|north!
Kaila specializes in soft lived in color, specialty styling and long textured cuts. She is also trained in makeup, airbrush makeup and is excited to bring her specialties to her new work home.
“I love what I do but my time with YOU in my chair is my favorite part of this rewarding career!”
