thom. , the original luxury men’s barbershop has opened its doors to create a hair salon that is more than just a space for you to get your hair cut.
It is a place for men to unwind, develop strong relationships, and pamper themselves with self-care. Thom strives to build a confident and inclusive community for every man by hosting events, talks, and cultural awareness with guests and industry connections; in turn, creating relationships that go beyond stylist and clients. The team at thom. brings together decades of experience, advanced men’s hairdressing skillsets, knowledge, passion and unparalleled customer service.
The foundation of thom. is built on two core brand pillars that are defined as “Neutral Masculinity” and “Functional Minimalism” which is apparent in the services, messaging and space. It is important for the team to create with these two pillars in mind, as they believe that masculinity is not black and white, but rather a colourful spectrum of the male identity. thom. goes against the grain from what other men’s hair spaces in Vancouver are currently offering as the stylists incorporate contemporary hairdressing techniques with classic barbering, creating innovative and transitional styles. It’s their way of giving a thankful nod to heritage while constantly pushing and growing with the future of the men’s grooming industry.
The name ‘thom.’ pays homage to its founder, Thom Robins and his vision to bring a salon experience to every man. He has applied his unique style of men’s hairdressing, cultivated over the past decade working with premium men’s hair care companies in London, Europe, New York, India and acting as International Hair Educator for Trueﬁtt & Hill. Alongside salon and education work he has consulted for many brands including Ben Sherman, Channel 4, Jaguar, ESPN, Gucci, Bloomberg TV, GQ, The Times, HBO, Radio 1, Aesop, & VW
Partner and Senior Men’s Stylist, Adam Petipas, has dedicated over five years to the craft of men’s hairdressing and barbering. He has undertaken advanced men’s hair courses with the likes of industry leaders such as Menspire, Glassbox and Vidal Sassoon, building a loyal following who frequent his chair not just for the excellent haircare he provides, but also for his relaxed demeanour and cultural knowledge.
Last but not least, JCI Hair Art Design Graduate, Jason Allum who brings over a decade of experience in the hair industry. Jason has worked tirelessly to expand and perfect his skill and has completed advanced education with the Sassoon Academy in Los Angeles and Bumble and Bumble in New York City.
