The Shoppe is a six chair hair salon located in the center of one of the best cites Lake Michigan has to offer. Milwaukee’s Historic Third Ward is rich with innovation and The Shoppe fits like a glove with the progressive thought process that goes along with the development of new ideas. Our space is located at 155 North Milwaukee Street on the corner of Milwaukee and Menomonee. We are a 6 chair “Hair Stylist Cooperative”, a community of beauty professionals whom all own our own businesses. The stylists at The Shoppe are extremely talented beauty professionals and highly functioning entrepreneurs. Each of us carries a specialty into the space and we all are driven to learn as much as we can about the profession we love. Our goal is to carry the knowledge we gain through continuing education back to The Shoppe and share it with the rest of the team, and then pass that on to our guests. Guests of The Shoppe will receive the highest level of customer service and each visit with be chalk full of valuable information, personalized beauty needs and most importantly, FUN!

At The Shoppe, we pride ourselves on our ability to communicate openly and honestly with each other as well as with our guests. It is in an honest world that we will all be successful, not one where beauty secrets are kept under lock and key. Our guests will be privy to the most up to date beauty tips, styling ideas, trends and fashions. Integrity is a key element to our operations, thus as a visitor to our space, guests will have the ease of knowing that our number one priority is maintaining the integrity of the hair strand throughout any beauty process. We will offer advice and suggest changes as we see fit but only if the changes suit the lifestyle of the guest. If a guest is uncertain how to work with their new look, we will offer personalized styling lessons to help bring ease to the morning routine.
