Head in the Clouds

Ode to that perfect pastel baby blue…

baby blue

Pastel blue hair and bob cut by Kristin Jackson.

This color was achieved through a full double process. Pastel color can be tricky to get and maintain especially pastel blue, the hair needs to be nearly white, any hint of yellow can turn the color green. We were super lucky that she lifted beautifully and decided to loose some length to really showcase the color. This client will have some at home upkeep like using Viral Baby Blue shampoo or LimeCrime Powder Blue to refresh at home since pastels do fade fast. Root retouch is recommended every 6-8 weeks. Cut and color was done by Kristin who is available Wednesday thru Saturdays. If your thinking of lightening your hair we require an in person consult this helps us get on the same page as our clients to determine the best service, price, upkeep and how long to book out to make your hair dreams come true. Consults are complimentary and generally take 15min. To book you can call or text 646-399-6873. As always thanks for peeping us and give us a follow on Insta @tomahawksalon

Join the caravan color by Kristin Jackson

Color was achieved through a double process root retouch with custom mixed colors. This took about 4 hours with the colors being hand painted into that perfect melt. To maintain color we suggest washing with cool water and using cleansing conditioner (shampoo that doesn’t suds). Thinking about lightening hair going blonde or creative we require an in person consult. This allows us to best determine hair goals, service, price, maintaining color and how long to book out to make your hair dreams come true<3 To book a consult call or text 646-399-6873!

Guide to Double Process Root Retouch

Confused of when to come in for that double process root retouch?! Check out below on how to keep that blonde looking stellar…

roots

Photo by @hairbyfranco

Let’s talk about the importance of root maintenance for blondes and creative color. We recommend every 6-9 weeks or 1 inch of new growth to keep the color even and the strands in best possible shape. We’ve had clients come in thinking they were giving their hair a break by going longer between appointments or they liked the dark root look. Unfortunately the more you wait the more intensive the process is making it difficult to get an even result and prevent breakage. Bleaching is about chemistry and relies on body heat from the scalp to lift hair as light as possible. The further down the roots gets the harder it is to match the color and you risk overlapping and whelp breakage. When the roots are long it does cost more since we consider it a virgin double process. It is so important to come in every 6-9 weeks, we usually like 1 inch of root,  to maintain the best blonde. If you are unable to maintain the schedule then balayage (hand painted highlights where the roots are left natural) may be a better process for you. As always if you are thinking of lightening your hair we highly recommend an in person consult to talk over hair goals. Keep those roots and strands in the best possible shape and prebook that appointment. Don’t risk breakage and uneven color, your hair will thank you for it and so will your stylist.🤘 #themoreyouknow .

Thinking about going blonde book out a consult. Consults are complimentary and generally take about 15min. We can go over hair goals, maintenance, pricing and best service to make your hair dreams come true. Call or text salon at 646-399-6873.

Summer Vibes

Yas summer is upon us and we are living for it! Check out some of our current work and if you haven’t done so give us a follow on our Instagram @tomahawksalon

balayage

Brighten up with balayage or hand painted highlights. Balayage has a more natural effect and can lift about 5 levels. Cut and color by Kristin Jackson

blonde balayage

Balayage grows out beautifully with a softer line of demarcation or regrowth. Balayage is great for more warm blondes and creative colors, it can take multiple sessions to achieve pale white blonde or pastels. For super light or platinum blonde a double process, scalp to tip lightening may be a better option but does come with more maintenance. Cut and color by Kristin Jackson using Redken ShadesEq

Summer chop by Donna Rae

pompadour

It’s in the details. Super textured pixie/pompadour by Donna Rae using Fatboy Perfect Putty.

platinum blonde

Platinum blonde achieved through a double process, hair is lightened from scalp to tip. Double processes require root touchup every 6-9 weeks to maintain an even color. Cut and color by Kristin Jackson using Redken Shadeseq

green bob

Double process creative color, also scalp to tip lightening. Creative color sometimes requires at home care using color depositing shampoos or upkeep with Manic Panic. These colors are made to fade and are not permanent. We like to go a little more vibrant for the color to last, super pale pastels may wash it in 1 to 2 shampoos. Topping the color of yourself isn’t too difficult and non damaging. The hard part is the lightening so always best to leave that to the professionals. Cut and color done by Donna Rae using Pravana Vivids.

Thinking about doing balayage hilights?! Here’s one of the best examples of slow and steady wins the race Ms. Khloe Kardashion’s hair progression from brunette to icy blonde. This took her stylist multiple sessions in a course of well over a year.

dark to blonde

Consults are free and help us determine the best service for you. Being transparent in our pricing and what we are able to achieve is vital to us. We want to make sure stylist and client are on the same page and in person consult, for us is the best way. We want to help you achieve your hair goals and come up with best option that suits you.

pink balayage

This color was achieved through a full head of balayage. Kristin hand painted the lightener leaving the root natural followed by creative color. Keep in mind balayage does not lift as strong as a full double process. We recommend this technique for clients who are unable to come in for regular touchups. Keep in mind all creative color fades and require at home upkeep;)

New Year, New Do!

Check out these strong and bitching females rocking their #girlboss hair<3

Color melt blonde into pink

Our client usually rocks flaming yellow, orange and red hair. But when Kristin lifted her roots and mid shaft the blonde just popped.

Color melt

Kristin did a color melt using Redken shades Eq blending into pink. This is a great way to change color and maintain healthy hair since NO lightener was used at the ends. The coral pink was hand painted from the ends to mid. Color by Kristin.

Blurple

This client had grown out foil highlights with a demarcation line 3 inches from the scalp. Kristin meticulously blended it out with a balayage, hand painted highlights. Kristin then applied a custom mixed smokey #blurple. Going this dark and vibrant will last this client months while she travels through Spain. The color will fade to a lavender. Cut and color by Kristin.

This client came in for lavender hair with Donna Rae around Thanksgiving. Cut and color by Donna.

pink hair

New year, new do! Donna took her to cotton candy pink and a tighter shave on the sides for New Years. I love how androgynous this look is. Cut and color by Donna.
