Services Offered

Epoch Studio Salon promises you “won’t find any neon signs, fancy promotional posters, or stuffy attitudes” at this unique, underground salon located in a fabulous loft space. Beth and Steph, the dynamic duo/incredibly talented stylists behind Epoch, do it all—from color and cuts to extensions, makeup and waxing—but they are especially adept at crafting stunning bridal looks that are impressive enough to divert the attention away from the dress! They’ve styled hair for over 100 brides and for dozens of runway shows and photo shoots—and are constantly taking classes and amping up their skills to keep in tune with what is fresh and new in the styling world. They really listen to what their brides want, and then they take it up a notch with their fantastic sense of style and expertise. Your look will be classic yet contemporary, with a vintage edge, but most of all, it will be timeless and eternally beautiful in your photos.

Pricing starts at $1000. There is a minimum of the bride + 3 attendants to book Epoch Studio Salon for your wedding. In-Studio Package includes use of their studio loft space for the bride and her entourage to get ready, plus a catered brunch complete with mimosas! The studio space features a salon, full kitchen, living room area and rooftop deck with seating and panoramic views of downtown.

Questions and Answers

What 3 words best describe your work?

Timeless. Fresh. Inspired.

Tell us about your company name.

"Epoch" means the beginning of a new period or era. We think it's pretty appropriate considering our bridal clients come to us when they're about to start one of the most significant chapters in their lives.

What are the common misconceptions about your services?

That we only provide bridal hair and make-up! We also run a full-service salon in downtown Chicago as well as share studio space with a video production company who we often collaborate with on projects.

What makes a wedding memorable for you?

Getting to meet everyone involved in the wedding, from the wedding parties to the vendors. The stories told during wedding prep are always hilarious and are usually about either the bride or the craziest bridesmaid of the bunch!

What have weddings taught you?

Relax! Weddings are supposed to be a celebration. Step back and enjoy it.

What's your favorite way to wind down after a hard day?

Cocktails and dance parties!

Verified Reviews from Real Brides & Grooms

“My hair looked amazing. It was better than anything I’ve ever seen in a magazine. My bridesmaid also had their hair done and they were all blown away.”

“The final look was even better than what I had imagined…it was hard to believe that was me. I got a few tears out of both my mother and mother-in-law when they first saw the finished product.”

I was getting compliments on my hair before my dress!

“I would recommend Epoch to anyone and everyone. Epoch is such a great team. They work so well together.”

“Beth never fails to amaze me with her talent for color and up-do’s. She is constantly in tune with what is new and fresh in the salon world, but is also unique, creative, and original when it comes to styling.”

“Steph took what limited vision I had about my hair and really brought it to life. I really don’t know much about hair but I couldn’t have imagined anything better than what she did for my wedding. It was really beautiful.”

“My hair and makeup kept up with me all night—through dancing, hugs and kisses, and especially pictures.”

“I received more compliments on my hair than anything else! It could not have been more perfect.”

“Their studio is inviting, open and full of light.”

“If there’s something special about Epoch it’s that even though they are extremely talented and cutting edge, they’re like old friends.”

“Steph/Beth are both awesome to work with and are the sweetest! They always listen and seem to get exactly what I want. They’re always on time. They’re also super flexible and have taken me earlier or later when things came up. Love them!

“Epoch is a small treasure in a big city and I would love for them to be included on such a prestigious website so that others can realize their talent.”
