Teamwork Makes The Dreamwork<3

One of the best thing about being in a small salon is the sense of kinship. Not only do we love working together as a crew but it’s absolutely energizing to collaborate with our clients. Check out some of our current work below and as always none of this would be possible without you, our clients!

Pink Mullet

@dirtworship had a vision and wanted a Donna Rae mullet. The following week she came in for a full double process to go with a bold pink with lavender accents. Kristin weaved out her natural color at the bang to give this high impact look. TEAMWORK cut by Donna Rae color by Kristin Jackson.

Working in the beauty industry can be complex. Our hair is tied to our persona. When we don’t feel like our authentic selves a cut or color can be up lifting. Do you have a vision of how you see yourself? We’re here to consult and guide you. Sometimes the vision can be a process, especially if you want a drastic color change. Sometimes it requires more maintenance and may not fit your lifestyle. That’s why we like to consult for all of our lightening services. When you come in for a cut or color bring in images, be it pinned or old selfies. Even if it’s multiple images we can help you piece it together. All of us here at Tomahawk are visual people and those images really guide us to give you the best outcome. When you walk out our doors we wanna see you shining like the star you are<3 Give us a call or text 646-399-6873

Color Me Rad!

Hand made color swatches

Hand made hair swatches by Kristin Jackson<3

Word up this post is all about that color. You know the kinda color that makes you do double take, be it a bit of a pop or a whole lotta BANG! Read on to see some of our tips and tricks to our favorite color of the month…

Custom pink

Donna Rae custom mixed pinks and violets to come up with this amazing tone!

Creative color is made to fade. We always like to go on the more vibrant side to allow for several shampoos. The best way to maintain color is to wash less, embrace dry shampoo and use color safe products or conditioning cleansers. The more you lather and suds the color disappears down the drain. Conditioning cleansers or No Poo can save your color but it’s not for everyone. Sometimes going brighter and allowing the color to fade to a more lived in look, is better for our clients. Remember color can be a journey:)

Electric green bob

An electrifying green on this precision bob both cut and color by Kristin Jackson.

One of our favorite ways of preserving color is by using Viral color depositing shampoo and conditioners by Celeb Luxury. One of my top tricks is washing hair in cool water not only does it give great shine to your hair but invigorates the skin.  Washing in hot water is a color killer, it opens the cuticle and causes the pigments to fall out and down the drain. Cool water seals the cuticle preserving color, keep in mind cool water rinse and repeat!

blonde melted into pale pink

Kristin melted the perfect icy platinum blonde into a soft and muted pink. To get color this white takes time.

All of these images are on double process hair. Hair is lightened to a yellow and then toned to customizable shades from butter blondes, rainbow colors or platinum. Vibrant creative colors are the most forgiving and can blend away even orange tones. To keep pastels and blondes you want to come in every 6-8 weeks for root touchups.

bleached panel

Fiona Beardman did a bleached butter blonde panel and demi permanent black to make this mullet really stand out.
