Two Mullets and Non Gendered Pricing

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

Curly mullet

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 on Straight Hair by Donna Rae

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.

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.

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.

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.
