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;)

Beep beep give us a call or text to book an appointment or consult. For any lightening service we require an in person consultation. Consults are complimentary and take about 15mins. This allows us to determine the best color service, price and how long to book out for your hair dreams to come true. Check us out on instagram @tomahawksalon!

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.

Is it time for a new do?! Give us a call or text we’ll guide through it with an in person consult. We’ll let you know what to expect with the lightening process, maintenance, pricing, service duration, haircare… Consults are free and generally take 15min or less.

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.

Clipper cut on curly hair

Next up Donna’s client wanted to bring out her inner warrior. Donna did a zero fade tapering down in the back. The line work makes for a striking effect.

This sweet selfie was taken moments after Kristin did her magic. Soft pale pinky lavender. Remember folks the paler the color the quicker the fade. Cut and color by Kristin Jackson. Photo by client.

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
