thom. - a men’s hair salon and barbershop in vancouver

thom. is an original, premium men’s salon & barbershop in downtown Vancouver that focuses on hair and grooming in a way that is currently untouched. By combining contemporary hairdressing techniques with classic barbering, we provide services that are both technical and aesthetically pleasing. We believe that it is important to give a thankful nod to heritage and tradition while adapting ideas in an innovative way that is constantly pushing for the future of the growing men’s hair industry.

The name ‘thom.’ pays homage to its founder, Thom Robins and his vision to bring a salon experience to every man, cultivated by over a decade in men’s hair and grooming both at home and abroad for some of the world’s best men’s hairdressing and lifestyle brands. It is important for us to create a space that is inclusive and elevated, which we like to define as ‘Neutral Masculinity’ and ‘Functional Minimalism’. These terms make up the core of our brand culture and are also apparent in our services, messaging, and space. At thom., we strive to go beyond hair by creating with a sense of community and forging lasting relationships with our guests.

Neutral Masculinity & Functional Minimalism at thom.

Neutral Masculinity

At thom., we feel strongly about the fact that “masculinity” comes in many forms – there is no black and white, but rather a colorful spectrum of the male identity which is why it is fundamental for us to create with a sense of inclusiveness. For example, hair that is structured yet soft and transitional, communication that speaks to all, and an aesthetic/design that is a balanced and fluid mix of the rough and smooth, colorful and neutral. We strongly believe that this ideology helps us stand out amongst other Vancouver hair salons, is a positive reflection of a modern progressive society and pushes us to uphold our brand mantra of “a salon experience for every man”

 

Functional Minimalism

Contrary to what most men’s hair services and providers offer, Thom aims to remove the clutter and noise. We feel that by identifying the core components of the task at hand (whether it is hair, decor, or messaging) and reducing it to its most important elements, we will, in turn, produce something of higher quality. Less has always been the new more; form and function rule.
