The Dundee area is getting a new salon and day spa.
Empire Style Bar, owned by Sara Larson and her boyfriend Kenny Maese, is expected to open by Sept. 1 at 5017 Leavenworth St. It will offer hair styling along with massage services, facials, body waxing, manicures and pedicures.
Larson, who has worked as an independent stylist for the past few years, said she was drawn to the area because of Dundee revitalization projects, the fact that the area is a walking district and the diverse ages of the area's residents.
Larson said renovation and construction on the space is underway. She expects to hire a staff of seven or eight, including hair stylists.
