Milwaukee Hair Salon Prices

Freya Salon

Price: $40 - $75+

“After looking for a salon I can call home, I’ve finally found one! I was greeted warmly the minute I walked in. I relaxed with a cup of tea while I waited for my appointment to begin. I was appointed with the stylist Joseph. He made me feel comfortable from the very beginning! I learned so much from him and my style is awesome!!! I could never figure out why my right side would never take a curl! Joseph explained why and cut my hair so that now I can style my hair and it actually looks great!!! I highly recommend making them your home salon!!” –Carrie G. (Yelp)

“I got bored of my hair and wanted something bold and not tacky. I came in to Tease to show my vision; although it wasn’t as clear as I wanted, the hairstylist was able to help me figure out what I really wanted. I came out of the salon happy and transformed. They treated me really well; while waiting entertained myself with some magazines, which is typical of a salon. I like their waiting area though, it’s very Bayview-like and hipster-ish with elegant vintage furniture. Then while waiting for my hair to get bleached I was offered some refreshment. Don’t want to be dehydrated! I recommend this salon for your eclectic hair needs!” –Celeste B. (Yelp)

“Absolutely love this place. I’m from California but have been living in Milwaukee for years and never got my hair done because I did not trust anyone. I went to two other places that had VERY high reviews and my hair was horrible. Here, my hair was transformed. They took me from brown to blonde to light ashy blonde then back to a deep burgundy. Despite all this dye and change to my hair within a year, my hair has never been healthier or grown faster. I adore Geri Beth as my stylist and colorist but literally anyone who works here is amazing. Geri Beth seems to personally pick amazing and extremely talented people to work at the get dolled up salons. I have never gotten better service or better hair anywhere else. If you need your hair done in Wisconsin GO HERE! I have had my hair colored, cut, extensions, extensions dyed and cut, etc. here and loved it every time.  Geri Beth is so talented that even the color my hair faded into months later is STILL gorgeous. Go here. You will not regret it.” –Molly P. (Yelp)

“Had been asking stylists for several years about transitioning from my brown/ black to grey but ALL were against it. “Too big of a change,” or “It won’t look good,” or “Those pics on social media/internet are all photoshopped.” New to Milwaukee area so I did a few searches & decided on DiCarlo. After a haircut & color consult, Maddie was enthusiastic & confident she could do this for me. It took 4 1/2 hours but she got it done in one session! The place has a punk/ alt vibe going on. It’s not posh or lux but unisex & unpretentious. The stylists are human, not scripted bots. I loved it.” –Jessica B. (Yelp)
