Before you can rate a haircut, you have to get one right? I made an appointment for 1 PM on a Friday (an extended lunch hour) and arrived a couple of minutes early. Margie did not arrive. After waiting for 30 minutes, I was ready to go.

OMG I can't believe I made it out with my 2 eyes. The hair stylist that I had the misfortune of doing of my hair scraped my face with the razor he used to cut my hair SEVERAL times, really close to my eyes. This place is just a disaster. When I got there (and throughout my time there) the employees treated me like if I was a pestilence and were not even interested in having a new costumer. NOTHING from their promo video was true. The place looked horrible, like a night club at 5am. There was no complimentary wine or even water from the faucet. And then came the disaster with the hair stylist. When I told him what I wanted done he just said: "Oh, you want one of those emo / poser / yippi haircuts? I am just going to do my own version." His own version ended up being the WORST hair cut I have ever had. I had to go to another salon (a great one called Public Salon in Williamsburg) to get it fixed. Even when he was done and I kept telling him things were uneven and not how I asked, the hair stylist still REFUSED to fix them!! All this while I had to hear all the stupid stories of how the other employees had gotten drunk and wasted the night before. This place is a joke. Untalented people, unreasonable prices and just one of the worst atmospheres ever.

I love coming to this salon! It's like going to your friend's house to get your hair done. Free wine, friendly chatter, very relaxed atmosphere. Ask for Jessah ?? she's the best; I have never had anyone straighten my hair out so quickly or fabulously!!!

Pros: Mad hair skillz

Cons: What are the drawbacks?

I can't get into all the details because I will get myself all worked up. So I'll stick with the basics...I set up an appointment for a cut and highlight. Instead she barely cut it, more so gave me just a trim, and BLEACHED my hair! But it wasn't like a full bleach where it was that cool platinum white blonde. It came out all different colors...orange, yellow, white, YUCK! Mind you I asked for a HIGHLIGHT! And to top it off, the place wasn't even open when I went (like 10 minutes before my scheduled appointment). So i came back a few minutes after 1 and finally they were open, although the stylists looked haggered as if they hadn't even gone to sleep yet. While doing my hair, they kept on talking about the great night they had and how hungover they felt today. Uh, yeah I could tell they felt like shit..it showed in their work! My hair was a total nightmare. I will never go there again!

I have been a client at Tease since its inception and have always been thrilled with my experiences there. All of my friends and I visit Marji, one of the fabulous owners. Whether you have straight or curly hair, she will create magic with your style. The atmosphere at the salon is totally chill, complete with offerings of wine, coffee and tea. GO! NOW! Even if you don't think you need a haircut!

Thanks Margie for a great color time and time again. I have been coloring my hair for years and have tried more salons that I can count. Once I found Margie at Tease,however, I had to look no further. My highlights always come out looking natural and not too brassy. The color lasts and needs very little upkeep. Prices for NYC are reasonable.

Have been going to Margie for 6 years now. She is the best. I never tell her more than "I want it cleaned up" or "I want to grow it out" -- she does her thing and gives me a great, hip cut -- something just right for my face and hair type -- as well as easy to care for that looks great from the time I walk out of the salon until I come back a couple of months later for a new Doo. And I am admittedly a Styling Dunce -- so it says a lot about her talents!

Pros: great cut, no pressure, relaxed atmosphere

Cons: cash only

They know what they're doing. It's always a good time, just going in there. I've been going there for the past two years and I've never had anything but the absolute best cut and color.

I really do, Margie at Tease salon can do it all! I initally came here to rave about my beautiful hair but now feel that I I must refute the below comment left by a very confused person, were they at the wrong salon? Now I'm confused, it's not hard to confuse me, I am a model after all. Photographers love my hair, I do both editorial and print, I get bookings based on my look alone, a look that Margie created for me. If a person has to wait more than 30 minutes for anything they should just leave, right? Sometimes I wait for Margie, about 5 minutes, WHILE SHE'S GETTING ME COFFEE!

Pros: Wonderful stylists, welcoming atmosphere, good rapport, lots of gossip magazines

Over priced, terrible job, took forever...I think I was there over 3 and a half hours!! And the place was empty when I was there...now I know why! I'm ok with paying more when the quality of the job shows but this was just God awful!!! I delt with it for about a week and a half when I had friends and co-workers comment on how bad it looked and then I broke down and went to another salon to have everything re-done. My new hair stylist pointed out things that were done incorrectly and what to watch out for in the future. I would never go back there. If your planning on paying a lot you mind as well go to a nicer place that does the job faster and better. I mean at those prices you can pretty much go to any other salon you want and maybe it would even end up being cheaper?! Of course if you want that grimy do it yourself punked out rock look then your at the right place.

Okay first and foremost I'd like to comment on the "HORRIBLE" review of Tease.... I don't know what planet the girl is living on DUMB or ridiculous Drama Queen! 1 - If your sister was really uncomfortable she shouldn't have come back (i'm sure these girls never heard of sucking it up as the word on the beat is her hair was fine the first time) 2 - what fool gets their hair done at the same salon her sister allegedly got bad color from JUST to make her feel comfortable?!? Have you just started going to salon's or something? 3 - What does Troye the co-owner (who is one of the best hairstylists in NY) know of her financial situation? I mean maybe I'm crazy but isn't it customary to TIP when satisfied (not obligatory) and what type of stylist WOULDN'T take a tip for hours of work that they aren't even getting paid for? NONE. if she couldn't afford it she shouldn't have tipped. 4- DUMP?!!! it's small and charming and exactly what a rock salon looks like... if you want glitz and glamour look for it on 57th street NOT the Lower East Side. Instead of spending money on hair you should buy yourself a CLUE. Grow up little miss unpleased. Jackie is an AMAZING hairdresser. You seem like the type that doesn't know what you want but knows how to complain. The desk staff said that they both LOVED their hair upon exiting AND this girl was wearing grungy running SWEAT pants. puhleeze. if you didn't want to get them ruined you shoulda been wearing a robe.

Phew. Now the reason I ACTUALLY came on for... I've been going to Tease for 2 glorious years and never EVER had a problem. I absolutely LOVE everyone there INCLUDING the newest girl who I'm sure didn't turn anyone's hair "orange". TRUST. These stylists have integrity!!! ALL my friends get their hair done there and are ALL satisfied. It's a friendly environment with great stylists who GIVE YOU WHAT YOU WANT, don't try to sell u crap...and offer wine to boot!! Disregard the last review as they always say YOU CAN'T PLEASE EVERYONE.

I went to this dump with my sister. She was so upset because she went to this place through a recommendation and came out with orange hair,,,LITERALLY. We called and explained to them that we would like it to be fixed. So because she felt uncomfortable we both went. I decided that since I would have to wait for her I might as well get my hair done too, hell they seemed nice enough. Well I had to get my hair touched up two weeks later because she didnt even get all the roots, PLUS she got dye all over my pants, PLUS it costs me 220 dollars. My sister gave the owner a 50 dollar tip that she totally couldnt afford, but he took it anyway. Any businessman fixing one of his employees clearly horrible job-SHOULD NEVER take money on top of what was already paid. Does he expect us to come back?

Took me a minute to get back on Citysearch and write a review, but just wanted to thank Jackie for the great color & cut. Found this place on Citysearch and stopped by a few weeks ago in need of a total overhaul in the hair department. Told Jackie to recommend a new look and got a sleek, layered look (my hair is super thick, curly and after not having a trim for six months, was totally out of control!) with an awesome dark brown color that thankfully had no traces of red in it (which is very difficult with my hair as I'm always told my hair lifts alot of red). Jackie got it right! The cut is spectacular and Maria's the queen of the flat iron!!! Will be back again. Great location and friendly staff! See you in a few weeks : )

Little hidden place on Lower East Side that I had never seen or heard of before. I went in for a haircut that resulted in a short mod style look. The style suits me well and requires little maintenance. I definitely will visit again.

I've been going to Tease since it opened (I followed some of the stylists from Cropps and Bobbers), and I just love it. One of the problems with a lot of salons in the hipper neighborhoods is that stylists either won't give you a regular cut or just don't know how. Though I know they can dish out the hippest of the hip haircuts, my curly hair tends to resist those styles, and they've never balked at finding something that works for me... even so, my hair is difficult and they manage to give me an amazing cut every time, whether I'm experimenting with something new or just coming in for a trim. It's not a big place but the atmosphere is comfortable and cool. As an added bonus, I've seen the hair styles (and extensions) Troye has given to some local performers, and it's always stunning, beautiful. He's an artist!

Pros: Flexible stylists, great cuts, drinks while you're in the chair!

In Short
The walls of this salon are bathed in lavender paint and lace stenciling, lending the feel of a downtown femme's to-die-for studio apartment. The chatty clientele, wandering in from the surrounding neighborhoods, talkā€¦
