After chatting with Sir Daniel and David Frohmberg, head stylists at Salon Tease, we could quickly see why so many brides rave about them and trust them with their wedding day beauty needs. And they really seem to do it all; on top of their full-service salon, they run a full-time wedding business, so it’s safe to say they know their stuff. This talented duo has worked together for almost eight years, enjoying every day where they can make people feel amazing about themselves. Get to know a little about Sir Daniel and David in our interview below!
How long have you been in the event/wedding industry?
Daniel and I have been working together now for almost 8 years. Daniel has been doing hair since 1976 and he really encouraged my growth in the biz – I was a graphic designer before I started in hair and makeup, and with his guidance we built the business to what it is today.
Tell us a little about your personality and interests.
Daniel: I am a fun loving guy that loves to have people around me – I love to travel, I’m an amazing cook (people are always telling me I should publish a cook book) a major David Bowie fan and am in love with our dog Prince.
David: I am thoughtful, quiet and a voracious reader. I love to make things pretty. I love traveling, vinyl records, old movies, eating Danny’s cooking and our little baby Prince Puppy.
What are your favorite trends currently?
We are just loving how a lot of the bridal hair and makeup now is looking more relaxed – almost like they did it themselves, but better. I think that it is so chic. Nothing too placed and nothing too “stiff” for the hair and the makeup is soft, effortless with a pop of color (either on the eyes or the lips) and lots and lots of lashes. Just perfect.
What is something brides/clients are surprised to learn about you and/or your business?
People are always surprised that we have a full service salon as well as a full time wedding business. We have learned how to juggle very well – at times it can be a bit overwhelming but the show must go on – and let me tell you – it does with bells, whistles and a 10 piece band.

What is your favorite on-the-job memory?
Daniel: It would have to be my first day on the job at a real hair salon in New Jersey called “La Papillion”. My mother had been going there for years and she arranged, after months of prodding, that the owner would hire me as a shampoo boy. I was fresh out of hair school and I showed up for what I thought would be an interview and he made me jump right in and I worked a full day and then some. That was the start of my career.
David: When Daniel and I opened our salon together (Salon Tease) – then and there I knew it was legit.
What is the most rewarding part of your job?
We love that we get to go to work every day and make people feel amazing about themselves. Where else can you do that? We get to enhance each person’s beauty and make them feel special.
