Our Vision


Studio Stӱl is a creative environment for stylists to individualize hair therapy for our guests. Education is the freedom to create. We receive education regularly and communicate product knowledge to our clients.

Make every day, a good hair day.

My name is Laura. We as stylists have been given the ability to touch someone and change their lives daily. My passion is beauty. As a salon owner and full time stylist I have officially experienced all sides of the beauty industry and it gives me more passion everyday. My haircutting and styling skills were instilled in me with no default. With such a strong foundation I have created many of my own techniques and looks over the years that I teach and pass on to other stylists and junior stylists as they begin to start their own journey behind the chair. As I love creating an entire look  I have attended almost every class Schwarzkopf Professional has to offer. My dream is to attend class at their Headquarters in Hamburg, Germany. I encourage myself to try something new everyday, share my experience and learn from it. From myself and the rest of the team at Studio Styl we thank you for taking the time to get to know us.

My name is Kelly. Stylist/colorist/ Extension Specialist Being naturally creative & artistic, I always knew I would end up working with my hands.  I figured I would end up at art school or cosmetology school.  My hairstyling career probably began in high school doing up do’s on my friends for dances and giving haircuts to those who trusted me with scissors.  And then professionally when I actually went to school for it.    I attended Pivot Point Academy and worked in 7 different salons over the years. My areas of expertise are in special event styling, extensions, and blondes.  Regularly attending education and staying current with the trends in cutting, color & styling is very important to me.  My current guests have a wide variety of hair types ranging from short, straight to long curly hair.   I have also trained extensively with many color companies such as Aveda, Goldwell, Schwarzkopf, and Redken.  I have been doing hair extensions since 2003 and am certified in Great Lengths, So Cap, Tony Odisho, and Dream Catchers.  The companies offer a variety of options whether it’s fusion, tape-in, or bead all lasting different lengths of time. Consultations are recommended.  My goal is to make each one of my guests feel great about themselves when they leave the salon. I strive to listen and communicate well on their individual needs.  It is important to feel that we are on the same page before starting the service.   I truly view each guest in my chair as a friend that I will have for years to come.  I look forward to meeting you

Hello my name is Karla, I am a hair assistant here at Studio Styl. I attended cosmetology school at TCD and then moved to the cosmetology school of College of DuPage. With one of many goals in my mind I hope to gain experience and learn from all the amazing stylists here at Studio Styl. I love working with a range of different age groups, love haircuts, braiding, hairstyling, makeup and working with color. As an assistant I hope to make people comfortable and feel confident in their own skin. If you would ask me what I love about this industry is that we can all be creative and we can get personal with our clients and assist them with their needs and wants.

Hi, my name is Pepper and I am the Salon Coordinator at Studio Styl.

I am Greek and moved to the USA in 2014 to enjoy the opportunity to work with family and friends.

I started working at Studio Styl to help during the first year of its inception and to assist wherever I could, but primarily the Front Desk.

I was then offered the position of Front Desk Agent at the Hilton Hotel in Chicago, where I got to meet a variety of people and exercise my customer service skills.

When Studio Styl expanded in early 2019 and became a full service salon, I was asked if I would like to return as the Salon Coordinator; I readily accepted.

Europe has always been the center of the fashion and beauty industry, so I fell in love with it from a very early age.  My passion grows daily. Working here at Studio Styl allows me to engage with all our beautiful guests, and work with amazingly talented people.  To see our fabulous guests leave with a smile is what makes me smile every day.

Come visit us at Studio Styl and you will never look back!
