"I have the BEST hair stylist in town!!! Gustavo Rosales has cut my hair for more than 5 years. I started going to him since he worked in San Jose (where I live) and followed him across the bay- that's how awesome he is. I'm a low maintenance and very simple type of girl. Gustavo understands my needs and is also very patient with me. I never have to worry about anything when Gustavo is in control of my hair. He always finds the right cut to fit my round face, which is the one thing I hate about myself. He gives me many options to pick from and also updates me on all the "in" styles. He manages to make every appointment fun and also educational. He teaches me how to style my new cut and also helps keep my hair healthy (my main concern) by recommending the best products in the market."
I will never change Gustavo for another hair stylist, because he is simply the BEST!!

I love my haircut and color every time and tell all of my friends to experience the same with Rick - especially now that he's at Tease. The space is intimate and he's the only stylist, which means 100% personal attention (although if Rick worked at a salon with 50 stylists, you would still receive the same celebrity treatment).
Rick is so personable that a two-hour cut/color flies by and I honestly count down the weeks before my next appointment with him. He comes HIGHLY recommended and I wouldn't trust anyone else to cut or color my hair. Thanks Rick!"

My trust in Jon and his skills became such that I deferred to his vision for a fairly radical cut and new style, which I loved instantly and madly. If you're in the market for a new partner in hair - a true artist - I suggest Jon Ryan at Tease. I feel certain you will be very pleased with the results."
My focus on hair color started in 2002. I completed Vidal Sassoon's conceptual training under some of the top Master Colorists of this country. These mentors inspired and challenged me, stoking my creative fire.
When it comes to my passion for beauty, it started for me as a child. I am the girl that had to give everyone a make over. And I still am that girl! I enjoy classic styles and creating unique updo's. My specialty is hair color but I also love working with make up and hairstyling. With this combined knowledge, I can create any look for any occasion.
One thing I love about my work is collaborating with clients. They trust me to honestly to tell them if a color or hairstyle will work for them or not. Whether you need a beautiful blow out or a complete change, I can assure you that not only will you be happy with the result, but your experience with me will be a great one.
My over all goal is to make you look and feel your prettiest. That's my favorite part of the job.
