Let’s Melt Away Into 2016

2016 is upon us. We’ve been at it for nearly 6 years in good ole Bushwick. An ever changing landscape, this industrial land of ours. We’ve decided to bring on board a new stylist, Natalia and open 7 days week. Changes are good, gives us something to talk about, who wants the ho-hum?! Not me I prefer to melt away like crayons on a radiator, let’s sizzle…

Color melt is an awesome way to update creative color. This is achieved through an already existing creative color. We use the old color at the ends and melt a new, vibrant color at the roots. So much fun without all the damage of a full double process.

Blah-Blah Blonde

Decisions, decisions what kind of blonde do you want to be?! Well we do loads of Double Processes good ole bleach and tone. Remember we like to take it nice and slow so getting to a super pale may take a few visits. If you want to push your hair further we recommend adding the Olaplex treatment to your color service. Olaplex multiplies and mends broken hair bonds allowing us to push the envelope without comprising the integrity of hair.

Oh hello to retro lovin’ pink! Gotta love this color that sends us to strolling on the boardwalk eating some cotton candy or doing it up to Jem and the Holograms. Be it the perfect pastel shade, dusty rose or a vibrant neon all we gotta say “Pretty in pink isn’t she? Pretty in pink…”

Tomahawk is super stoked to offer Olaplex a 2 step salon service and take home treatment. Olaplex allows us to push hair further and yes GO BLONDER! It multiplies bonds and cross-links broken bonds that help restore the strength, structure and integrity of the hair. 1st step is applied into bleach, color or glaze which is the bond multiplier. 2nd step is a conditioning treatment that is the bond perfector which helps dramatically reduce breakage. This service is an additional cost of $40-115 depending on how much product is used. We also sell the take home weekly treatment for $28. Heck yea let’s get to bleaching!
