Master Stylist

Teresa is the owner of Twisted Hare Salon, and has many years of experience cutting hair that has curl.   Her education includes Vidal Sassoon Academy in Santa Monica, CA, Matrix Advanced Academy in New York, and Deva certification in New York.

She is certified in the curl-by-curl cutting method by Lorraine Massey, Curl Map certified by Scott Musgrave, Head Shape Matters, Presley Poe intermediate class, and Advanced Education in Affinage color. 

Teresa is  always looking for continuing education.

Having swavy hair (which has body and not much curl), has not prevented her from understanding curls. Often, curly-haired people are told never to trust a stylist with straight hair, but what you really need to be asking is how educated is the stylist, How long they have been doing curly hair, and do they have experience with varying types of curl.

Teresa's cuts ranges from $100 to $200

About Us

Time to Embrace Your Curls...

Where curly hair makes sense for a change.

On September 1, 2017, we moved to 3401 Nicollet Ave, Minneapolis, MN, 55408. Since 2006, we have been the first in the Twin Cities to specialize in curly hair. East 42nd Street Salon is now Twisted Hare Salon.

East 42nd Street Salon, named from a previous address, caused a lot of confusion for all the new curly clients that would drive to 42nd and Nicollet because of the salon's name. This prompted the name change to Twisted Hare Salon. We have the same great service and expertise with a twist in the name to fit the style of the salon while remaining true to our focus on curly hair.

When you walk through the doors of Twisted Hare, your eyes are drawn to the Alice in Wonderland theme. With mirrors that look like you can walk right through Wonderland and teacup chandeliers, you may feel like you are about to embark on a journey to a fairy-tale wonderland! "I love the play on words with our new name, which incorporates our curly hair focus and our Alice and Wonderland theme," says the owner.

Ask most girls with curly hair, and they will tell you how hard it is to find a place that understands and can cut curly hair. In beauty school, they do not teach you how to cut curly hair, so Twisted Hare has filled the need for the Twin Cities area and beyond. The salon has clients from North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa, Canada, and even a client from South Korea.

Curly hair is as individual as people are! Come to Twisted Hare Salon and Spa to see what works for your gorgeous curls! A plus is that we have a parking lot behind the building. Contact today.
