Owner, Dan had a dream. He was sick and tired of working for salons and companies that didn't have his or his clients best interest in mind. He was fed up with working in places that didn't foster an environment of creativity and exploration that he needed to be an artist. He wanted so badly to work in a place where he felt valued and at home with his co-workers. So he decided to make his own space.
With the help of some friends and family, he rented a small store front in an up and coming neighborhood. He put his blood, sweat and tears into transforming it into the space he had been dreaming about for so long. After many tireless days and nights, he opened Tease Salon in January of 2007, and we have been a proud business of Bay View for over 10 years!
Today, Tease has become one of Milwaukee's premiere hair salons, and a leading salon in education in Southeastern Wisconsin. We've established connections with educators across the country, allowing us to provide a variety of education opportunities for our stylists and bring in newly licensed cosmetologists to prepare them for the industry. Because of this, Tease has evolved into a collaborative, and creative environment that encourages our stylists to work together when planning a route for our clients, regardless of educational background or years of experience.
In September of 2017, we expanded to the second floor of the building, allowing us to employ more stylists and accommodate for new clients as Bay View continues to grow and renovate. We are incredibly excited about our expansion, and what it means for us as a business.
In addition to the work we do in education and for the industry, we are also an extremely active member of the community.
To name a few: we are a part of the LGBT Chamber of Commerce, a certified Strands for Trans salon, participate in all Bay View community events (including Bay View Gallery Night and Christmas on KK), sponsor a family each holiday season, display art in the salon by local artists, and donate services and products multiple times a year to fundraisers and silent auctions. We are truly honored to be a part of the Bay View community, and believe that giving back to it, not only encourages our business, but our neighbors local businesses and community health.

As a team we believe in the power of self-worth and self-confidence. We want you to always look and feel your best, and to encourage you to explore and try new things, as well as share our expertise to make at-home hair care as easy for you as possible. We believe in educating our clients so they are able to recreate the looks they love to have done in the salon, at home.
We pride ourselves on having a warm, inviting, and accepting atmosphere filled with fun-loving, friendly, and approachable stylists and staff. Our space is a safe space, open to clients of all ages, genders, ethnicities, sexualities, and walks of life. We are a team that is more than co-workers, we are a family. We truly enjoy spending time together and making memories together, and we hope that you'll join us on our journey.
We look forward to welcoming you to the Tease Family and making you a part of our story.
We hope you'll find a place to call home here, as many others have before you.
