Teased Hair Salon
Teased Salon owner Brooke Hammer has saved people from what she refers to as "hair hell." She and her staff of stylists have witnessed sea-green color catastrophes; they've consoled mothers whose manes look butchered by their children; and they've rescued cuts after patrons visited a "chophouse with a new girl," says Brooke. For such cases, and for all her clients, Brooke employs the tips and techniques she learned during 11 years and through training with Aveda and Paul Mitchell. Each haircut or style—for men, women, kids, and brides—centers on communication; she consults with clients before snipping a single strand. And she gauges not just physical attributes such as face shape and hair texture, but also personality traits, such as edgy, conservative, or Aniston.
Brooke's path to a career in hairstyling wasn't always laid out before her, even though as a child––to her parents' dismay––she altered the hairstyles of several dolls and a few cousins. Yet she always had a creative streak, which a master stylist and instructor nourished in a protégé program. After nearly a decade in the business, she struck out on her own with Teased Salon, in the company of Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe, and other Hollywood icons who now star in the salon's chic, vintage decor.
