One of the best kept secrets in Bushwick, Brooklyn. Tucked away behind a storefront this 4 station private salon has been banging out killer cuts and buzzworthy hair color since 2010. Tomahawk is a full service hair salon specializing in hair color from double process platinum blonde to multidimensional balayage and highlights. We love turning mere mortals into unicorns and mermaids with our vivid and pastel custom creative color. Our cuts can be bold statement making shags, mullets and mohawks to androgynous short to beachy waves, we got your backs. Tomahawk Salon is owned and operated by a woman of indigenous and mixed heritage. The tomahawk to her is a symbol of defiance and kinship resonating through the shop and staff. We built this place to be a home for us and for you, a safe no judgement zone. Our clients come from all walks of life and we hope that’s reflected in our work.
Every month Tomahawk donates proceeds from our sales to groups, causes and organizations that are fighting for and protecting our civil rights and liberties. We wholeheartedly support Planned Parenthood, Trevor Project, Southern Poverty Law Center, Environmental Defense Fund and the ACLU. Our donation days are announced via Facebook and Instagram. We are committed to fighting the good fight.
Tomahawk is conveniently located at 17 Thames between Bogart St and Morgan Ave just off the Morgan L stop. Please be advised all services will always be CASH ONLY!

We are a small salon and treat it like a mom and pop shop of bygone years. We run by appointments so if you’re late or cancel at the last minute it can throw off the entire day and make us late for our other clients. If you’re running behind give us a heads up, 5-10 minutes is usually fine, any later than that we might have to shorten or reschedule your appointment.
Tomahawk likes to keep our clients looking the very best version of themselves while also meeting the needs of our growing community. The best way is to call ahead book an appointment at 646-399-6873 or text please leave your name and number and we will get back to you. Please be advised we sometimes have to shut the salon down be it a special event or god forbid sick days we do our best to notify via Facebook. Color appointments fill super fast to make sure you get your desired appointment consider pre-booking our nights and weekends usually book 1-2 weeks in advance! Nothing makes us happier then to see our clients shine bright like the stars they are..
