About Our Founder

Teressa Au

Teressa Au

Teressa is the founder of X-Per-tease Hair Studio. She was a convincing winner at the 2012 International Hairdresser Society’s High Fashion Team Collection, won second place place in the 2011 and 2012 IHS Open Team Fantasy, and in 2011 won 2nd place in the IHS Men’s Catwalk NATIONAL AWARD.

She rarely does client work these days, and spends most of her time training hair stylists (most of whom staff her salons, such as this one), organizing for events and running the X-Per-Tease hair studios.

Teressa effectively formed X-Per-Tease’s team of talented professional hair stylists from nothing. Her experience and leadership has provided our stylists with the tools to take their vision to the next level, and all of our staff have enjoyed key results from their experience in the powerful work environment at X-Per-Tease Hair Studio. Her involvement with hairdressing and management for the past 18 years has given her a wealth of knowledge and resources in business and marketing and enabled her to run her own business since February 2002.

She makes sure that her staff are exposed to all of the latest trends and state of the art technology and treatments. For this reason Teressa encourages her team to attend as many educational workshops, seminars and trade shows as possible every year; Matrix, Redken, GHD & Hair Expo…etc.


Teressa and her team have also competed for Australia’s top hairdressing awards. In addition to winning:

  • 2007: Fantasy Team Collection at IHS Victoria Hairdressing Competition
  • 2008: Fantasy Team Collection at IHS Victoria Hairdressing Competition
  • 2009: Fantasy Team Collection at IHS Victoria Hairdressing Competition
  • 2011: 2nd place for Fantasy Team Collection at IHS Victoria Hairdressing Competition

X-Per-Tease also received 2nd place (including 3 runner ups) at IHS National Hairdressing Competition 2011. To learn more, view Our Awards »

Teressa herself is a session creative stylist and on occasions you will find her away working on fashion shows, photo shoots, seminars and workshops. Teressa and her team had participated backstage at Mercedes Benz Fashion Show, Loreal Fashion Festival Weeks, Matrix Seminars and Hair Expo in Sydney.

Community Work

Community involvement is very important to Teressa and for that reason her team has organised hair shows to raise funds for the community such as the:

  • Breast Cancer Foundation,
  • Breast Cancer Network,
  • Bush Fire Appeal,
  • the Starlight Foundation
  • and Reach VN Inc (a non-profit charity organisation currently supporting 400 ethnic orphans living in poverty in Vietnam).
