ABOUT ME: I graduated from College of Hair Design in Lincoln, Nebraska in 2002, received my cosmetology instructors’ license a few years later and moved to Chicago. I spent 2 years as a member of the Chicago Cosmetologists Artistic Team, teaching other stylists from the stage and bright lights. For photo or runway I try to push the limits but for clients I love hair that is organic, natural and that suits the individual.

ABOUT ME: I consider myself lucky. I do something I love on a daily basis. I was fortunate enough to find my groove for shooting and editing video at the University of Iowa. I started my business 5 years ago and it has since expanded into two companies, Ben Mahoney Productions (commercial films) and Leap Weddings (weddings films). After realizing that almost every one of my video clients could use some sort of hair or make-up service I decided to bring on a couple very talented artists and so Epoch was born.

ABOUT ME: I moved to Chicago 7 years ago from Madison, WI to persue my dream of doing hair. I attended the Aveda Institute-Chicago, then went into two years of intensive cutting and color training programs in the city with Trio Salon and Robert Jeffrey Hair Studio. Upon completion I spent a few years as a stylist developing my skills and finding my hair niché. Recently I joined the Epoch team and couldn’t be happier about the opportunity to be a part of such a unique space. I love to make my clients feel cared for and beautiful throughout their experience in my chair.

ABOUT ME: I started as a shampoo girl at a small mom and pop salon in the western suburbs at the ripe old age of 16 while attending cosmetology school part time during my junior/senior year of high school. Upon graduation, I spent the next few years at a small salon but had my sights set on the city. In 2007, I made the move and haven’t looked back. From funky to subtle, I love it all. I believe in catering to your personality to find the style that’s right for you.

ABOUT ME: I graduated with a BA in Art from the University of
Colorado. Then I spent two years snowboarding the Rocky Mountains
before moving to Los Angeles to work on the corporate side of film.
I’ve been back in Chicago for awhile and enjoy making hair
transformations on every client. Watching someone light up after
getting their hair done is contagious, and I love to keep a smile on
