    Emilio Rivera and Scott Wilker brought their professional lives together and became the duo of “Salon Duo”. This location has been open since February 2001, but the two have been working together since 1992.

    Wilker, an Aveda Institute graduate with a background in fashion, developed a strong following at the very regimented Michael Thomas and at Blair Gordon Salon. He emphasizes precision cutting and exquisite blowout/styling.

    “The boys” then moved along with their growing clientele to Timothy Paul where they ran a salon within a salon and dreamt of bigger things to come. In June of 2001 their dream was realized in the opening of Salon Duo!

    Between the two, all of Chicago’s social scene have relaxed in their chairs for years and continue to do so because of the high level of hairdressing consistently offered them. Emilio and Scott have taken care of members of the news media, local celebrities and high profile personalities. Their clients are often seen in Chicago Social, Town and Country and they were stylists for Channel 7 Monday Makeovers. All in all, it is always about beautiful hair!
