It's been a few months since Tease Salon and Spa in Pilsen has been open and we're sorry we didn't tell you sooner - this is hands down the best girly party salon in the city. Not a party like tea sandwiches or playing with puppies - a party like Dita Von Teese and champagne on the big pink couches in the lounge-y boudoir in the back of the salon.
When you walk through the salon, past the hair stylist stations, past the waxing, massage and facial rooms, even further in the bowels of this fresh-modern salon and you'll see the clear envelopes near the nail color displaying the vajazzle gemstones.
As the stylists and estheticians who run Tease are all a smokin' hot cross between your sassy gay best friend, Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe and Angelina Jolie, they sure know how to run a smooth yet exciting business.
The main pull to this salon, beyond the constant stream of clients walking through the door is the retail section in the very front of the shop and their ability to host bridal parties. Big or small, the salon parties have ranged from tame mani / pedi to vajazzle and feather hair extensions. Without a doubt, the stylists tell us that the pull for them is the vajazzle for bridal showers.
Actually the service as listed on the menu is the "Bedazzled Glitter Brazilian" under spa services but once one of the girls does it, all the girls are doing it. Suprise suprise! We get a little closer to one of the women who just had it done to see the technique of application and how this vajazzle treatment is different than the others. We promised we won't reveal the secret but we were told that the method of application lasts more than 70% longer than normal while still being non-toxic.
After your va jay jay gets all dressed up, you now have the option of having your makeup done by Jennifer Hudson's make up artist, shopping the accessories in the front of the salon or heading back to the party lounge area to catch up with your champagne and Sabur Savour bites.
