There is nothing like a dapper Dan, a man of yesteryear with clean cuts and clean lines. Be it dustbowl era or 50′s greaser the undercut is one style any man or women can rock!
It’s a simple cut usually achieved with clipper work ask for the sides and back to be shaved leaving some length on the top to rock a pompadour or neatly combed to the side or greased straight back. The undercut is super versatile you can go extreme with a high and deep shave or classic and gradual with a blend.

And hell even girls can rock it think Tilda Swinton or Michelle Williams or dare I say my inspiration for cutting my locks Leonardo Dicaprio circa the 90′s! I had Donna Rae Williams do a high shave using a 2 guard all around then kept my top long hitting to my ears. I wear my do slicked back using Redken Polish Up Pomade or floppy and to the side using Fatboy texturizing putty. Cut and products found at Tomahawk.
I got to do these really cool 60′s french style bangs on Shelby. Totally changed her look with one swoop of my shears.
Bangs are such an easy and economic way to change up your do. Maintain your style with $15 bang trims, no fringe no problem a bang cut is $20-25. Here are some classic examples of famous fringes and whatever you decide bang on.

So recently I decided to strip the blue out of my hair and try my hand at silvery blonde.
The double process is one of our most popular services. It first requires bleaching hair then toning (we use Redken Shades EQ or highly pigmented creative color). This service is used to achieve platinum blonde hair or any creative color. Hi-lights or Balayage is more dimensional and little less upkeep you can get away with some roots where as a double process they are more noticeable. Time in the chair is about 2-2 1/2 hours. Bleaching can be damaging on hair your first process may not bring you to white and may require several visits to the salon. After you achieve your perfect blonde you maintain it by doing just the roots and toning all over, since it is only the roots being bleached damage to hair is minor. We recommend keeping hair healthy by using Redken Anti-Snap and Extreme shampoo and conditioner sold at Tomahawk also extra virgin coconut oil.
For more information on services and prices please visit our color page.
