About Us

Ina Evtimov, owner and master stylist at Gold Coast Salon

Welcome Beauties!

I have a confession: I’m absolutely addicted in the process to create the perfect looks for my clients! Everyday I wake up so thankful that I’m fortunate enough to do something I absolutely love for a living.
 Having over 15 years of experience as an  administrator in the luxury beauty industry, I began my salon career in the heart of Chicago working with the industry’s top talent and most savvy clientele. For a young European girl, this was a fantastic eye-opening experience. I’ve watched, learned and brought my own style to the fashion industry I so much adore. I also had a great opportunity to assist on numerous photo shots, reality shows and fashion events.
After I spent five years traveling in Europe and  acquiring some fine technical styling skills, I returned to my favorite City Chicago with the determination to start something that I call my own. Gold Coast Salon opened doors in 2018.
I do consider myself a “beauty coach.” I’m A type, a perfectionist, and I’m genuinely invested in every guest’s happiness and amazing experience. In creating your look, I always pay attention to skin tone, fashion sense, face shape, eyebrow color and your lifestyle. I’m always joking around laughing too much, but I take my craft very seriously!
Whether working on extensions or creating a sandy blond or rich, glossy color, keeping the hair shiny and healthy is what’s most important to me.
Outside of the salon I’m a mom of three wild, but adorable boys, Domenick 16, Alan 15, and Nicholas 9. On the weekends, I am either at their hockey games, playing frisbee in our backyard or spending time with my favorite people sharing laughs and conversations over a cup of coffee or a glass of chilled white wine. You will also find me walking on the Lake Michigan shore or exploring what’s new in our city! If you do see me make sure you say “Hi!”
I feel that everyone deserves to feel good about themselves. It is my honor to be a part of helping you to feel beautiful and empowered and to find your own brand of beautiful!
My advice to you is to live with a dose of fashion.. with a pinch of humor.. and a lot of style!
