Tommy Guns NYC

I recently discovered a wonderful establishment; a salon with a vintage twist. Tommy Guns NYC parlor is nestled within the Lower East Side which only adds to it's turn of the century charm! The proprietor is a dapper fellow and stylist named Russell, who tells me that after a string of successful Tommy Guns salons in London, he decided to bring his art and vision to the States. I asked him if he thinks that he will expand more, adding that Los Angeles would benefit from a real vintage inspired salon, and he replied that he wasn't sure yet and he wanted to continue to nurture the NYC location. After two years, it certainly has become a popular hotspot for celebrities and industry professionals!

If you are in need of styling, I encourage you to make an appointment. Not only will you receive tremendous service, but you can bask in the beautiful industrial era surroundings! Check website for more information. Many thanks to Russell and staff!

This first set are promo pictures that Russell sent.

If I cut my hair, that is just the place I would want to do it in.

do you know? I'd actually consider making the cross country jaunt to have a nice shampoo and cut in a place like that! Thanks for the pictures--what a fabulous spot!

Kitty, LA really needs something like this. There are a few places, but sadly they are more or less theme type jaunts. No attention to historical detail and the spirit of classic grooming.

I echo that statement! LA certainly can use a place like this. The details of the interior are so intricate & meticulous right down to the products. Thank you for this post.

SuperKmama sent me here, and now I am delighted to read that they have these salons in London. Looks heavenly.

It was an unfortunate side affect of the boom (In Ireland) in that average salons charged more for the same unskilled haircuts in fairly average surroundings. Maybe everyone will be working a little harder now to attract and pamper customers in exchange for our rubles and trust.

What a fabulous place you've found! I wish we had a classy looking place like that around. That's not to say there aren't some classy looking salons around here, just not anything quite like this.
