A haircut is like a breakup—it doesn't seem like you need one until someone starts brandishing scissors. Get cut by a professional with today's Groupon: for $50, you get $100 worth of hair-salon services at The Tease.
The hair-handling mavens of The Tease brush, shear, and coif locks into exquisite keratin confections with a comprehensive menu of hair services for men and women. Shaggy, overgrown mops enjoy a tress trimming by an experienced stylist who sculpts head matter of all textures at egalitarian unisex prices based on hair length ($31–$40). Expertly applied foil highlights coax strands into lightening up, making hair brighter and less fond of listening to Morrissey records on repeat ($90 for full highlights, $75 for partial highlights). Unlike the frizzed-out perms of the '80s, a modern hair retexturizing treatment breaks down the protein bonds of flat hair and reforms them into soft, face-framing curls ($80 for a full treatment, $65 for a partial treatment). The versatile salon also provides an Alterna Caviar ultraconditioning treatment, a luxurious experience that transforms rough hair into spun silk in 45 minutes and finishes with a professional blow-dry, ensuring clients leave the salon looking as fresh as the prince of a wealthy Los Angeles suburb.
Under the guidance of owner Amber Waters, the artistic team at The Tease can truly help a client to refine and flaunt personal style. Along with overseeing a full slate of salon services, Waters crafts custom dresses and offers private sewing lessons in her colorful and quirky studio.
The Tease’s clients know they’ve found the right place when they approach the studio’s uniquely vibrant façade, hand painted with a swirling floral design. Beyond a bright-red waiting room furnished with antiques and tapestries, a sewing machine hums and taps, at home in a studio stocked with bolts of fabric and brightly colored threads. In an adjoining room, Waters and her staff perform a suite of hair-centric services, from cuts and coloring to updos and hair extensions.
