Bi Pride Hair!

Bi Pride flag hair in the works! Kristin Jackson uses Pulp Riot hair color to achieve the bi pride flag colors of pink, purple and blue.

Kristin, Donna and I want to take a moment to say Happy Pride to our queer community and allies. It is a great privilege to be a part of the LGBTQIA+ community. HAPPY PRIDE never let anyone dampen your shine there is something magical and powerful in queer joy.

Tomahawk is BIPOC and queer owned space. We are located in the heart of Bushwick, Brooklyn in a private, sun filled space. We love being a part of our clients exploration of how they express themselves in this world. Fo many of our trans and non binary clients cut and styling is one of the first gender affirming steps. We offer a safe space to explore without judgement, we are here to be a part of your journey every step of the way. We have been open since 2010 and made the decision years ago to not price on gender but length and style of hair. Moving forward I will personally be making content about gender affirming hair. I’ll be posting here on the blog and our Instagram tomahawksalon. This content will be centered around the process of hair and the impact cut and style can have on ones identity. This information will be especially for those out of state that may have difficulty knowing what to look and ask for when walking into a salon or barber shop. Things like hashtags and how to find queer spaces and stylists. Style verbage especially around short hair like fade, hardline, undercut, squared vs natural neckline, etc.. There is so much to explore and talk about with hair, beauty and steps that can be taken to affirm gender especially for those in states where this maybe daunting. This is something I can do for the community that has welcomed me and accepted an indigenous, mixed bisexual + that believes this world is not black and white and is beautiful in its fluidity.

As always thanks for peeping our page. Consults, appointments and questions shoot us a text 646-399-6873. Happy Pride everyone!

Two Mullets and Non Gendered Pricing

Let’s take a look at 2 mullets one curly and one straight.

Curly mullet
Curly Mullet Front View Cut by Donna Rae
Curly Mullet side view
Curls, Curls, Curls cut by Donna Rae

Mullets can be perfect for all textures including curls. It’s all about the moisture locking it in and promoting the curl pattern. We love working with all textures from curly, straight and wavy we got you covered.

Mullet
Mullet on Straight Hair by Donna Rae
Mullet side view
Mullet Side View with Fade on Sides Cut by Donna Rae

Did someone say business in the front, party in the back! This mullet is on straight hair with a more extreme fade on the sides. Both of these mullets can be done on any texture the biggest thing is how short you want those side. Doing a sharp fade like Donna did above you will definitely want to see someone that is comfortable doing a fade and Donna has being doing fades, mullets and shags since they’ve had scissors and clippers in hand.

One other thing these mullets have in common they are both non gendered pricing. Meaning we DO NOT gender our cuts or price by gender. Tomahawk has been a gender neutral hair studio for years. Our prices are based on length and style of hair NOT gender. Though we offer non gendered pricing we also love and truly feel blessed when we do gender affirming services. We live for having people sit in our chairs and allow us to be a part of their journey. We have so many trans and nonbinary clients and it brings us such joy to see our clients walk out feeling more a kin to themselves and who they are and how they want to present in this world.

Here is our pricing for cuts:

Above The Ears $65, Below the ear above the shoulder $70, Shoulder to shoulder blade $75, Long to extreme long $80-85.

Donna prefers to work from a wet palette and likes to do a diffused blow dry to work with natural texture. Kristin prefers dry cuts and is additional pricing for wash and dry. Both work with all textures. Donna can do zero guard fades like above Kristin does not and prefers using a guard. Bring in reference pics to show both stylists are very visual.

Tomahawk is BIPOC queer owned and operated private studio in the heart of Bushwick, Brooklyn. Text for appointments and consults 646-399-6873

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.
