Contributing member of the stylish set, and founding Editor of Laundry, Kelsey Kreiling visits Epoch Salon and gives us the rundown on vibrant fading hues.

Chicago has its fair share of stand out salons but we’ve found a gem of a space that creates gorgeous hair, makeup and full makeover experiences. Nestled away in West Town’s BMP productions, the petite salon is spearheaded by Stephanie Mueller & Beth Stock who loves to push the limits and create luscious, organic hair to suit her exclusive clientele perfectly. She crafted this bold platinum and purple ombre look with the newest balayage technique- hand painted highlights and color to create a sleek gradient. The come-as-you-are salon creates makeover videos, photoshoots and style consultations in collaborations with their sister companies BMP and Leap Weddings. Looking to begin your own Epoch? Stephanie and Beth’s services are available by appointment only.
