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!

An Ombre To Dye For and Technicolor Hair a Tomahawk Fairy Tale

Once upon a time in a land not so far away, lived an ordinary girl who dreamed of  extraordinary hair. She was trapped in the wicked corporate world in a place void of color, surrounded by glass and steel, all she she knew was dark, black and grey. But in her dreams the girl found a world filled with vibrant people from head to toe in ultraviolet, electric blue, neon yellow and dusty rose. Until one day the girl stumbled upon a place deep in the land of Bushwick, Brooklyn. And on a street of graffiti and industry housed a hidden salon with 5 very special ladies. The girl sat in a chair as bowls and brushes magically appeared, potions were brewed and wands were waved and ALAKAZAM! She opened her eyes lo and behold the world she dreamed of was in her hair and on her nails. Those special ladies were indeed fairy godmothers who told the girl the magic was always inside her, to go, be bold and to add color to that wicked corporate world…

So now you probably have loads a question. Getting this colorful hair requires some upkeep. These colors are demi permanent, they are made to fade we usually recommend to go a lil more vibrant so you have more time to enjoy the color. Many of the looks are clients like such as pastels are lived in colors, all colors will fade to a pastel or a tint. You have so many choices you can do with creative color the level of commitment is up to you. Double processes will require 6-8 week root touch up and all over tone. Ombres, dip dye and panels require less touch ups and often you can reapply color at home. We do not recommend home bleaching, we see way too many folks that fry their hair, leave the bleaching to the professionals. See our color page for prices and more on upkeep. Come visit us soon Life’s a bleach and then you dye..

Bleach, Bleach and more Bleach also Jess of all Trades Video

When I think bleached hair I imagine punks on St.Marks with rainbow mohawks, Youthquake icon Edie Sedgwick, 90′s riot girls with fists in the air and hot damn Debbie Harry!… To me it’s what Tomahawk and Bushwick is all about, it’s not LUXURY (argh I wanna puke when I hear Bushwick and luxury) it’s gritty, it has teeth, it’s a f*cking punch in the face! So here is to our filthy, gorgeous clients rockin’ bleached hair. KEEP IT SLEEZY BUSHWICK! See ya in the gutter…

We at Tomahawk love to get creative be it through a full head of vibrant hues, hi-lites for a pop of color, an ombre or dip dye effect, or just a peek a boo of colorful panels. Check out some of our creative color work.

Creative color is usually achieved through a double process that requires bleaching and toning hair with colored pigment. Bleach will lighten the hair and open the cuticle for the deposited color to really stick. Creative color can also be applied to natural hair for a bit of a pop or on prelightened hair as a single process. To maintain color we recommend using color safe products such as Redken’s sulfate free shampoo and conditioner Color Extend Magentics available at Tomahawk. Check out our color page for prices.

With A Heavy Heart…

We at Tomahawk are truly devastated to hear of the death of our dear friend Chris DeMarco. We opened our shops around the same time at The Loom. We were a family of transplants trying to etch out a place for ourselves. He was always there making us comfort food, handing us a shot, commiserating about money and life, smiling that really big silly grin (to me the most perfect smile that wrapped around his eyes) and above all giving the best hugs on the planet! My heart goes out to his family, friends and all the Bushwick transplants that crossed his path. We will have our memories of the Deli and General Store and time well spent with a beautiful dreamer and friend. R.I.P Chris DeMarco.

Chris Demarco

There’s a way to help the DeMarco family please follow the link and donate Chris DeMarco Fund. RIP my beautiful friend.
