80’s Time Warp With Mullets and Shags Oh My!

We’ve definitely been seeing some 80’s and 90’s nostalgia and we are living for it. I grew up crushing on Keifer Sutherland and all the yumminess of The Lost Boys. I tore up my living room dancing to Pat Benatar and Joan Jett. My life was all about Teen Beat, John Hughes movies, spandex and spraying down my mall bangs with aquanet. Gimme the music of goth rock and hair bands, I’ll take the 80’s any day. So yeah I love me a good mullet or shag. Keep’em coming and the dream alive!

Swoon my beating teen heart nothing like a man rocking business in the front, party in the back. BRB just getting in my DeLorean to transport me back to ’89…

Near perfection with Betty Bangs, shaved sides and long textured mullet. This is up my alley a bit 80’s punk and no wave.

Donna Rae was inspired by Yolandi Visser with this rad cut<3

Texture was added by Donna for lots of lift and curl definition.

Shags are one of my all time favorite. Loads of texture by layering hair to various lengths  this androgynous cut was made famous by rockers Mick Jagger, Rod Stewart, Joan Jett and the iconic Jane Fonda.

Shag cut by Donna Rae. Get at Donna every Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday for all you 80’s rockin’ needs;)

What is awesome about shags is that you can always take a cut like a bob and shag it up by adding more texture to give it a bit of oomph and edge…

It’s been a unicorn hair extravaganza here at Tomahawk. We are so excited that the lovely Doe Deere sent us her labor of love Lime Crime’s Unicorn Hair. It’s a semi permanent fantasy color with divine names like Sext, Dirty Mermaid and Pony. We love Lime Crime’s ethos of being vegan and cruelty free. Always rebelling, never boring.

Keeps extreme, pastels and platinums popping by adding, correcting and maintaining color brilliance. Check out our testing on Natalia who has been lightened to a golden blonde.

Viral Pastel Pink squeezed onto Kristin’s hand

Apply to wet hair saturate from root to end you can apply as many times as needed for bold results.

This color was achieved on golden hair using Viral pastel pink. This would be great to maintain a true pastel pink or rose gold hair.

celeb luxury color depositing shampoo

Heck yes are you excited 10 bold colors including extreme silver, pastel lavender and more. We  also have Gem Lites Flawless Diamond Anti-Yellow Whitener Shampoo.

Viral and Gem Lites are an effective treatment at home to maintain color from fading. We highly recommend saturating from root and diluting color at tips. On porous hair you don’t want the ends to grab so use the Blonditioner or conditioner towards the ends for more even results. If the color grabs too dark just wash with your shampoo, we recommend once to twice a week use alternating with your regular shampoo. Check out their site Celeb Luxury for more info and care.

#grayhairdontcare vs #byebyegrays

This post is all about the gray/silver hair how to get it, blend it, embrace it or conceal it.

Let’s start with this badass client who flew in from San Francisco for the Women’s March on Washington. Donna Rae first cut her hair into a bitchin’ shag and then went in with bleach around the sides and bangs to lighten hair to an almost white. Donna then toned the hair with a steely silver by Redken ShadesEQ. This client wanted to embrace and blend the grays she has. This will be low maintenance for her since the root of the panels are concealed by super dope texturized layers.

Donna Rae gave this client a rockin' shag and placed several steely silver panels around the sides and bang.

Donna Rae gave this client a rockin’ shag and placed several steely silver panels around the sides and bang.

Now let’s get into the more complicated grays. Getting this look is not the easiest especially if you have dark hair. Our client below came in with already pre-lightened hair it just wasn’t light enough to hold the gray tones. That’s the trickiest part of gray/silver hair you have to get the hair really light, past orange and yellow to an almost white, if not the hair will look more green. You really have to use color theory and lots of patience to get this color. It may take several visits to the salon for desired results. Natalia Michele did a full balayage leaving a more natural root. She used permanent color after bleaching to achieve this charcoal effect. What’s great about balayage is the built in natural root. Touchups are up recommended every 2-4 months. Some clients choose to come in every 6 months or later for a more ombre effect. Toners will wear out in about 4 weeks you can maintain it at home with demi permanent color like Manic Panic, Special Effects or Pravana you can also just book for a glaze/gloss in between your lightening services.

Natalia Michele kept a natural root and blended several shade gray to achieve this multidimensional look.

Natalia Michele kept a natural root and blended several shade gray to achieve this multidimensional look.

Peep this silvery white hair on our next client. Cut and color was done by Natalia Michele doing a full virgin double process. Maintaining a color like below is a commitment of coming in every 6-8 weeks to get the roots done and toner refreshed. To keep her white/silver we recommend using a purple/violet shampoo like Clairol Shimmer Lights and Matrix So Silver. Weekly or monthly masks such as Hask placenta or Redken Extreme Anti-snap help deliver protein to weak or damaged. We offer Olaplex to our color service to help keep and maintain the integrity of the hair.

Natalia Michele did an all over double process to achieve this silver white hair. Virgin snow indeed!

Now let us say bye bye gray hair. Our gorgeous client just become a mother she needed something low maintenance to cover the grays. Kristin Jackson went with a full balayage to help blend the grays. This is great option instead of permanent color. As we gray we need to go lighter with our color. Doing permanent color either to conceal or darken hair is more maintenance about every 4 weeks compared to the balayage at every 4 months. Here’s why, contrast. Gray hairs will pop against dark hair where if we lightened the strands there is less contrast. For real going gray is a struggle, a balancing act, to resist or to embrace. Hopefully we can make it a lil easier and guide you with what’s best for you and your lifestyle. Check out our glam client below.

Here is Kristin doing her magic. A full balayage in process. This is hand painted technique. The ends are more loaded with lightener as Kristin blends upward almost to the root.

Hey Folks Friday February 17th we will be our Donation Day with proceeds of our sales going to the American Civil Liberties Union works to defend and preserve our individual rights and liberties guaranteed by the constitution. As a person of color, a woman and born to immigrant parents the wave of anti-immagration in the U.S and Europe has me so saddened and sickened. With that said the battle cries of resist, stronger together and yes Love Trumps Hate make me hopeful. Seeing my community here in Bushwick and all over this country rallying, marching and organizing keeps me going. So mark your calendars for Friday 2/17 all cuts, color and retail 20% will be going to the ACLU. #immigrantstrong #aclu
