Laura Frazier, owner of Cut-N-Tease Salon, had always wanted to be a cosmetologist when she was little. After she went to cosmetology school in her mid-20s, she turned her passion into a business, one that is celebrating its 10th anniversary 

The business started in a small building that once stood by the Burkhead-Green Funeral home on the corner of Sheldon and Lawrence. When that building had become available, her and her husband decided to go for it and start a salon business. With a growth of clientele, Laura moved the business to 229 S. Cochran Avenue, where the red paint and awning have become a well known feature of main street. The inside of the salon is centered around a Rockabilly music theme, with records and music posters along the walls and the unmistakable mural of a record with the business name up in the front room. 

“I wanted something different than just a regular salon,” Laura said.

Laura was happy that Barb Burpee recently joined her staff. Both of the stylists are grateful for the community support over the years and have enjoyed serving their clients. They also have opportunity for more growth for an additional stylist.

The salon caters to men, women, and children and offers haircuts, highlights, perms, regular and shellac manicures, pedicures, and facial waxing. 

You can call (517) 543-6509 for Barb, who is in the salon Monday through Friday, or (517) 541-9644 for Laura, who is in Tuesday through Saturday to make an appointment. You can also find Cut-N-Tease at their Facebook page.
