Stephan realized at a very early age that appearance, especially hair, plays an important part in how people feel about themselves. His aesthetics were influenced by his European heritage – a German mother and Serbian father – and he made it his passion to make people look the best they can. Stephan credits his mom with being his inspiration and teaching him that a great hairstyle can boost self-esteem and personal confidence.
After earning both his barber and cosmetology licenses to get a broader view of the profession, Stephan has worked for over 30 years under some of the most talented stylists in the industry in both Chicago and Washington, DC.
Stephan found his niche working at Cristophe Salon. He specializes in trendy and fresh haircuts for women and men. His haircut techniques are designed to maximize the life of a hairstyle so that his client doesn’t just walk out feeling great that day, but feels confident and amazing until the next cut.
