Beth always does a great job with my hair

Emily Weinstein

I can't say enough about my fantastic experiences with the whole team at Epoch Studio Salon! Being that I work in the wedding industry, I have a lot of experience partnering with many different hair and makeup professionals, but very few compare to those at Epoch Studio Salon. Not only are Beth, Crystal and Steph extremely talented, but they are experienced, creative and personable. When working on-set or on-site in a professional capacity, they are always timely, respectful and responsible. From events to weddings, fashion shows to editorial shoots, I've seen these ladies pull out all of the stops! These women take their client's vision and customer service very seriously. I have also had the opportunity to enjoy this dynamic team's talents as a client at the salon. It's a beautiful space and so fun to be in, plus, Madelaine who manages the studio is wonderful! Whenever I've gone to see these lovely ladies be it for a hair cut, hair treatment, blow out, makeup application, etc., they have listened to my vision and offered their own insights and expertise to help cultivate a look (both hair AND makeup) that I've been happy with! They take care of their clients, are extremely flexible and always looking to improve their skills and share new tips. Really, I can't say ENOUGH wonderful things about the ladies of Epoch! In fact, I'd recommend Beth, Chrystal and Steph to all my clients, friends and family...check them out today! You won't be disappointed!

the best stylists in Chicago recently upgraded to a beautiful new space! I’d follow these ladies anywhere. Beth and Leslie are incredible, but you really can’t go wrong with any of the stylists.

Elizabeth Adams

One of the best professional hair salon in this area.

Bridget Gunden

LOVE this salon. It's a hidden gem off the beaten path, but the design is really cool inside. I like to feel like I'm somewhere cool when I'm getting my hair did, because, well, I want my hair to be cool too. So that's a plus. The staff are great at what they do, and are well trained in many different techniques. So if you want something plain jane, or super crazy, or anything in between, they can do it and do it well!

Trying a new salon has always been stressful for me! Annie was so patient with me and a great communicator! She was attentive to my concerns and the result was gorgeous, multidimensional hair color! So happy I gave this place a try. The atmosphere is high-end but not stuffy and so is the impeccable customer service. Also, it's beautifully decorated and the salon chairs are super comfortable!

Lance Ellazar

Omg I love my new hairstyle!

Madison Barrett

I had an AMAZING experience at Epoch! I had heard from a friend about this salon and then stalked them on Instagram before I took the plunge and decided to chop my hair and get natural looking balayage highlights. DeAnne took such great care to listen to what I wanted and it came out amazing. Literally exactly what I wanted! What a gem of a salon and I DEF will be coming back! Thanks again!

Dana Ramahi

I went to get my haircut and colored with Beth and she did such an amazing job. We talked about my hair and what she thought would be the best in terms of cut and color. She gave me the best haircut I've ever had, and I was so happy with it! I definitely recommend the warm service and friendly staff of Epoch Salon to all my friends and newcomers :)

Julie Hall

Make an appointment with them today, they are extremely gifted at what they do!!

Nicole Fisher

Love this place! All the women here are so friendly! Definitely recommend giving them a try!

Giselle Ghofrani

So happy I stopped in for my hair appointment, I almost didn't make it because of a late work meeting I had and the team was happy to still take me late. Their appointment scheduling was very easy and I opted for receiving email confirmations. When I arrived I was warmly greeted with flavored seltzer and the sitting area is super cute. I worked with Beth who was honest and amazing. I have very dark hair and the last time I had my roots done somewhere else they did it with permanent dye. Beth suggested that we do semipermanent so that when my greys grow out it was more gradual and less stark. She also trimmed my bangs and dyed the underneath portion of my hair a beautiful midnight blue, it was previously a faded green. She also recommended that I wait on getting my hair fully cut because she felt that it looked great the way it was. I appreciated her honesty and I had her recommend me hair shampoo/conditioner, and she stayed super late to finish my hair even though her entire team already left. My hair is now growing out and it is a very gradual grey! The products I purchased also have helped with my scalp health and have helped keep the blue in my hair bold. So happy with the entire experience thank you Epoch and Beth!!!

William Reigle

The best salon in Chicago. Super friendly staff in an inviting atmosphere. Consistently great mens haircuts across several of the stylists I've seen there.


Highly recommend for hair coloring. Tip: check in on Yelp for a discount.

Taylor Janeczek

Just moved back into the area and needed to find a new stylist. Epoch had good reviews on google so I decided to check it out and schedule. Peter did an amazing job touching up my roots with highlights and giving me my vibrant blonde back! Definitely will continue to come here. I have found my new stylist!!


Michey Glez

First time here today. My stylist was Sam, she did an awesome job. I had an all over hair color, black. It was a deep black, which is what I looking for and the end result was dope. The haircut came out as I wanted with my bangs beautifully done. I've had an experience that was horrible with those $5.00 places lol that left me in such trauma but Sam heard me and did not do me wrong :) Nevertheless, great price at Epoch.Great conversation as well. Thank you,Sam for the color and cut and for the awesome idea for my birthday. Will try to pull off.

Cathy Cox

SARA IS FANTASTIC! I was in Chicago for business and decided I needed a haircut. After some googling, I picked Epoch and they referred me to Sara. She listened carefully and understood my issues with a cowlick and frizz caused by Florida humidity. I left there very satisfied with a new haircut that is so easy to manage. (Sad to say....way better than I’ve been getting for years from my old stylist). Wish I lived close to Epoch and Sara. Highly recommend.

Carrie So

Beth is the best

Erin Gaynor

Annie @ Epoch is amazing! I followed her from the Robert Jeffrey at Wicker Park and I could not be happier that I did. She has done amazing things with my hair over the years--I've gone from shoulder length to pixie cuts and everything in between--never, during the several times that I've grown out my hair did I have an "awkward" hair cut. Annie is amazing at color, too, having taking my natural brunette hair all the way to platinum blonde without using bleach (for that, my tresses remain grateful), then to red, then back to brunette. I used Annie for mine and my bridesmaids updos, and she did my wedding makeup. Plainly, I would follow Annie to the ends of the earth, but thankfully, Epoch has good street parking ;)

Danielle Coffey

My daughter and I stopped in to see about their services.. the staff was very informative and Deanna was very focused on our hair texture and types and recommended the best person and products for what we wanted to do to our hair. Overall experience was awesome! Will be scheduling an appointment soon!

ashlen beckley

Annie is amazing!! She gave me my first trim in over two years because I have been trying to grow my hair out. I had been so nervous to have someone cut too much off. Annie made me feel so comfortable and showed me exactly how much I should cut off for it to continue growing and be healthy. there were no surprises! My hair looks amazing! She even showed me some blow drying techniques and gave me some tips on products to use. I never knew that a little trim could make my hair look so beautiful and healthy. I walked out with so much more confidence than I walked in with. I will definitely be back!


Evelyn is so wonderful! She intuitively knew the perfect shade of blonde for my skin tone and the perfect length to cut my hair. She did an excellent balyage and was the first stylist I've ever had who seemed to part my hair perfectly around my cowlick. Her blowout was fab too! Evelyn is aweome.

Muffy Takes Manhattan

I went to Epoch after another salon massacred my hair. Epoch was able to get me in right away for a color consultation. Dillon took a look at my hair, and ended up putting toner on it that day, which was wonderful. (It was the holidays and I was scared of spending even a day more with orange hair). A week later I came back for highlights, and a cut. Dillon did an amazing job, and I'm so pleased with the results. She is a literal miracle worker, and just a very cool person, to boot. I also had a great experience with Madelaine. She is so professional, and proactive. I was incredibly impressed with her. Overall, five stars for both services and customer service. I will DEFINITELY be back. actually cannot wait to get my hair done again. :) Thanks again Epoch for saving the day!!!

Georgia Gerber

I had an amazing experience with Leslie at Epoch Studio Salon! If you want experienced stylists and fabulous results this is the place to go! Leslie really listened to what I wanted and counseled me on the best way to get the desired outcome without ruining my hair(I like my hair *blonde*)! Their space is so unique and full of life!

Donna Cruz

In addition to doing a great job, the staff is friendly. The salon has a very cozy and relaxing atmosphere.

victoria Garcia

I love this salon! I was fortunate enough to be paired with Beth (a master colorist) she turned my sad brassy, mishandled balayage into the most gorgeous honey blonde. My hair is naturally very dark and was previously colored treated. What Beth and her team were able to accomplish was brilliant. Everyone who works at Epoch is so sweet, professional and helpful. After my color & cut, I was offered and blowout and style. I walked out feeling like rockstar and ready for my birthday weekend. Love this team. I’ll be back in Jan. for my touch up. ❤️

Barbara Jones

Epoch Studio Salon is a gem! Annie, is a phenomenal hairdresser. Every stylist there are wonderfully nice and professional.

Sebastian Krupa

Awesome place and very conducive area. Highly recommend!

Evan Cutler Wattles

I've had my hair cut here for the last three years and can't imagine ever going anywhere else. I started with someone who has since moved elsewhere, and have been with either Evelyn or Leslie every time since. Normally, when I get my hair cut, it takes a few days for me to be into it, but with these two, I love it the moment they finish, every time, without fail. Everyone there is friendly, funny, and always willing to go the extra mile for me--whether that means teaching me styling tricks, trimming my eye brows (I didn't know that was even a thing people did before Epoch), or giving me a soda. Truly the best group of stylists in Chicago, both in talent and personality.

Erica Grigg

Awesome cut and color again, as always!

Caterina Mazzotta

Beth, as usual, nailed it!!!! Just came back from a balayage colour and cut with her and I love it! I was looking for a colour and cut refresher and she knew exactly what I was talking about when I was describing what I was hoping for and showing her pics. Since moving to the city this year I used Yelp to find her and I'm so glad I did. She's like the "Balayage Hair Whisperer". Seriously, book her and you won't regret it!

Jamie Delcid

Evelyn is the best!

Arianne Senires

I love how their studio is very open and welcoming. The stylists there are so kind and really listen to you about your hair and how to style and tame it! I would definitely come back and get my hair done again.

Katie Bieber

I am so thrilled with how my hair turned out after recently seeing Annie. I initially went for just a haircut. I loved how she listened to my concerns and also gave me some practical tips on how to style my hair using different techniques that would help prevent it from more damage. I loved the cut so much that I decided to go back for a full balayage. My hair already had a poorly done balayage in it from a previous salon. It lacked blend and needed some serious toning. Annie was able to work with my hair as it was and transformed it in to a beautiful, more sombre look - perfect as fall is just around the corner. The shading is absolutely seamless and I left thrilled with the end result. Additionally, the space is absolutely beautiful and everyone that I interacted with was kind and welcoming. I highly highly recommend this salon!

kristen kuntz

Took care of my insanely long hair, I trusted them completely. Comforting and fresh atmosphere and sweet staff

Gabrielle Sappenfield

TOTALLY DESTROYED MY LONG HAIR!!! First attempt at balayage done by owner BETH was choppy, over done, brassy, with very over processed pieces right in front of my face! Came back for a correction which was very confusing even though I showed her MANY pictures, even ones of myself with past beautiful highlights. NO OLAPLEX was used with the bleach for the second round of lightening resulting in SEVERE DAMAGED hair!! After processing for 40 minutes, I asked BETH -OWNER- if she remembered to add it. She said NO and immediately rinsed me, but it was to late. I like warmer colors. I left with GREEN HAIR do to the ash blonde permanent color applied, agreed since toner washes out within days. Final color choice wasn't discussed. Had to cut off 5 inches of hair and layer it! Still very damaged! My bangs are now just below my chin, where I had none to speak of prior to BETH'S hair assault!! Will have to wait YEARS again to grow this out. My hair is UGLY I am devastated!! DO NOT USE THIS SALON!! NO CARE OR SPECIAL APPLICATION WAS PROVIDED TO ME AND MY HAIR IS THE PROOF! CARELESS APPLICATION ALL AROUND! STAY OUT OF THIS SALON

Alyssa kulinski

I was researching different hair salons online and decided to go with Epoch! Definitely the best decision I made! The vibe of the place is chill and beautiful. Annie did an amazing job with my hair and I absolutely loved the outcome! Her suggestions and tips were super helpful and applicable to my own daily haircare routine. Overall it was a great experience!

Maya C

Evelyn is great! Nice studio, very friendly staff.

Sterling Berry

Beth and Steph at Epoch are amazing. They did our hair for our company photo shoot and it was nothing short of perfect. There are 4 of us, each with very different personalities, and we wanted hairdos that would represent each of us, but still look cohesive together. Beth and Steph took all our different opinions and visions into account and created 4 unique, seamless styles that looked FABULOUS in our photos. Thanks guys, we can't imagine anyone doing a better job!

Traci Villa

Beth has been doing my hair since 2007. When my previous stylist relocated I tried at least 5 others before finding Beth by chance. She is extremely talented in both cut and color and gives my very fine and thinning hair the TLC it needs. She's passionate about her work and her life and I'm never bored sitting in Beth's chair. I can't resist a new beauty product, but she is never pushy and will advise me not to purchase items I may be very willing to waste my money on. I absolutely love her! I've taken my Mom, my best friend, and my niece to Beth. When my niece was 15 years old she she thought Beth was the coolest person ever and said she wanted to be "just like Beth." I told her if she wants to emulate someone, Beth's a great choice. Fast forward 3 years - my niece just started beauty school. Thanks Beth! :) Looking for a gifted stylist at a fabulous and exclusive salon? Beth Stock at Epoch!

Katie Nelson

I have been going to Beth for about three years (ever since we booked them for our wedding) and I seriously LOVE Epoch Salon. Beth is amazing and they are very flexible with their appointment hours - it is so nice to speak directly with the stylist when you are scheduling your appointment. The actual salon is in such a beautiful, fun space and Beth makes it a very relaxing and comfortable experience. In addition, their prices are very reasonable and I always love what she does with my hair! Both Beth and Stephanie did our bridal party's hair for our wedding and everyone thought they did an amazing job. They are both super friendly and open to suggestions and were able to style everyone's hair in the way that they wanted. After our wedding, every bridal party member that lives in Chicago told me that they are going to start going to Epoch to get their hair done, which is a great review in itself:)

Diana Ganz

I LOVE this place. I just went to the salon for the first time and got the best cut and color of my life! Sam did a great job with my balayage and cut. Highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a fresh change to their look!

Simeon Pratt

Caitlin Johnston

DeAnne nails it every time! I went to her last year with a tragic ombré grow out and she effortlessly crafted a gorgeous summer balayage. she's charming, personable and professional. I recently came back to refresh my cut and color and she did such a great job! 10/10

Amy Sullivan

Laura Kinkley

I got a perm by Beth... ...and I rave about it to everyone! My hair had a small wave that would sometimes show up and stay put. I took advantage whenever it came around. Beth told me we could make my hair just do that everyday, and I was ecstatic! When you hear the word "perm", you think of someone with braces and a fluffy poof over their forehead, but Beth gave me such a fabulous body wave that I absolutely love. The curls aren't too tight so they look really smooth. It looks so natural and everyone asks if it is my real hair. I always take the opportunity to tell them to go see Beth and get a perm. My sister is even getting one when she comes home from London at Christmas! Maintaining it is super easy too. It looks better NOT using a hair dryer or diffuser. I just get it towel dry (wrapped up) for a bit and then air dry it. Then viola! Sexy curls! The most I ever have to do is boost the volume at the top with a comb. Check out their website for pictures of my PERM!

Ron Schnorbus

Epoch is a welcoming and relaxing salon. Peter does an amazing job making my hair look it's best. He has a great eye and makes recommendations. Thank you Peter and staff of Epoch.

Erin Strick

Annie is an extraordinary hair dresser and make up maven. She did mine and my bridesmaids hair for my wedding--it's been almost for years and people still remark on how much they loved my hair.

I've been a client of this salon for about 4 years. I'm a former hairdresser so I did a lot of research before coming in. I've had both Beth and Leslie do my hair and both are wonderful stylists. They are so knowledgeable, professional, and easy to talk to. The salon has grown in the last few years and I can tell they are very particular about who they bring into the mix. I have seen them execute tons of different looks in the salon, from extreme to modest, modern and conservative. You can't find more talented hairdressers around. Whatever the look you're going for, they have a stylist at Epoch who can help you achieve it.

Kristina Guobuzaite

Annie at Epoch is fabulous! She is the best hair stylist and colorist I have ever had. Annie has been doing my hair for over four years. She is extremely talented at cut and color, knows what looks good on me, knows the products and is a wonderful person in general. We always chat and laugh - I have a fabulous time in the chair. I get compliments on my hair every day. People compliment my highlights and ask if I just left the salon. I say "YES"! I followed Annie from Robert Jeffrey at Wicker Park to Epoch. LOVE Epoch. It is a very modern, stylish and fun salon with a friendly staff. Thank you, Annie and Epoch, for a high-class experience!

Heidi Trejo

I love the style and atmosphere going on inside the salon. And the young girl who cut my hair did an awesome job. She provided me with insight on how to take better care of my hair. And did a great job with my hair cut. Thank you Samantha

Wonderful salon. I see Sera there and is a color genius and wonderful human.

Dana Spiwak

I can’t say enough amazing things about Epoch! I feel like a movie star! Beth did the most incredible job with my color and Ashley did an insane blowdry and perfect beachy curl. Beth also spent extra time teaching me how to curl my own hair! The space has the best vibe and everyone is so nice!! I can’t wait to go back! Highly, highly recommend!

Jessie Reick
