About Damn Time… For A New Blog Post It’s All About The Rainbow;)

It’s been over 2 years since our last post. In that time we moved to a private studio and well continued on banging out cuts and color. We are still adhering to some covid guidelines like wearing masks, stations 6 ft apart, limiting guests and visitors. Masks is something that we will continue to implement. It’s for our safety and yours since we are still in very close proximity. But Hey we’ve gotten use to our new normal. If you forget your mask no worries we’ve got you covered. For now I wanted to share some of our recent color by Kristin Jackson that will send you over the rainbow.

Thanks so much for peeping our page and looking at our rainbow confections. All cuts and color were done by color specialist Kristin Jackson using Pulp Riot Hair Color. All of these required hair to be lightened and are double processes.

For all new color clients with us we require a consultation. You can send us a current hair pic, color history and goal image text to 646-399-6873. Consults allow us to go through process, time, cost and upkeep. Keep in mind most of our color appointments are very time consuming. Consults allow us to figure out the best strategy prior to appointment.

Our private studio is at 456 Johnson Ave Suite 327. We are appointment only. No Walk Ins please text ahead of time 646-399-6873

Covid 19 Procedures and Protocol

Woohoo after 3 long months we are finally ready to to reopen below is all the info you’ll need know before coming in for your appointment.

1. NO WALK-INS running by appointment only. The best way to guarantee a slot is by calling or texting ahead and pre-booking appointment at 646-399-6873.

2.YOU MUST WEAR A MASK NO EXCEPTIONS be aware that the mask MUST go behind your ears not a bandana. If you do not have a mask or prefer to not wear for cut or color we can provide you with a disposable mask for $2.

3.NO ADDITIONAL GUESTS we are asking our clients to come alone for their appointments. We no longer can offer a waiting area and are doing our best to limit the amount of people in the space.

4.BRING YOUR OWN BEVERAGE we are unable to provide beverages we ask that you bring your own and leave with any containers.


7. PUNCTUALITY IS KEY to having the salon run and meet the necessary sanitation guidelines. If you are running late please let us know and we will do the same. If you are running 15mins or later we may need to reschedule. Please understand all of our appointments will take longer than usual with strict cleaning protocol between clients.

8.BLOWOUTS ARE DISCRETIONARY Blowdryers increase the spread of the virus droplet if someone should sneeze or cough through the salon. The best thing to do is for cuts come in with clean damp hair and leave with hair damp or be placed under the hooded dryer for natural texture, color clients please come in with dry hair. Some clients will need to have their hair dried for color or if the stylist deems it essential to use a blowdryer. Please understand this is a necessary safety precaution.

9. NOT FEELING WELL we ask if anyone is feeling under the weather or if has been around someone that is showing signs or symptoms to reschedule appointments including our stylists.

10. WASH, WASH, WASH HANDS before sitting down for your appointment.

Here is what our stylists will be doing to provide a safe space for ourselves and clients.

We stand in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement. Tomahawk is owned and operated by a mixed indigenous woman who has spoken out and stands with marginalized black indigenous people of color (BIPoC) community. Tomahawk has always represented and been a symbol of both kinship and defiance. Owner Chantal asks you stand with us and for the Bushwick community in saying BLACK LIVES MATTER and we must end police brutality. We are standing with State Senator Julia Salazar and Assemblywoman Maritza Davila in REPEALING 50-A and passing the Safer NY Act. As New Yorkers this is something we can do now DEMAND the NYPD to take accountability of gross misconduct and the over policing of our communities targeting brown and black folks. Primary Elections are on June 23rd. If you are a New Yorker and unable to make it to the polls please make sure to send in your Absentee Ballot. For more info on the Primaries and how to vote click this link Vote.NYC. It is time we have JUSTICE for the victims and communities devastated by police brutality.

Hello March

Purple and pink hair

bob cut purple and pink hair

Ahhhh Spring is upon us and we are feeling it just like this amazing cut and color by Kristin Jackson. A perfect bob haircut and creative color that slays for days. This color was achieved through a double process. Hair was lightened and followed by custom mixed multi colors by Kristin using Pulp Riot<3

blonde balayage

A beautiful natural balayage (hand painted highlights) by Kristin Jackson using Redken color. This multi-tonal method allows for a more natural way to brighten hair and give dimension. Balayage is great for those that want less upkeep than a double process since the root is untouched. Balayage tends to have more warmth and lifts about 5 levels. If you want a very light cool blonde it may take several visits to the salon to achieve.

Shag cut

Our boss lady Chantal got shagged by Donna Rae. Shag haircuts are great for both straight and curly hair. Thinks icons like Cher, David Bowie, Joan Jett, Rod Stewart and Stevie Nicks! This is a great cut for everyone to rock!

wash hands

Hey everyone we just want to take a moment and say for all of our health make sure when you come in PLEASE WASH YOUR HANDS! We are taking our best measures to keep healthy and safe. If you don’t feel well please stay home. We do 24 hours confirmations just let us know at that time if your feeling under the weather. It’s better to be safe and take preventive measures. We love our community let’s all play a part in protecting one another.
