Ludlow Blunt Salon
Ludlow Blunt (formerly Tommy Guns) is one of the top-rated salons and barber shops in NYC. Modeled after old English elegance and European charm, they are as proud of their authentic shop interior as they are the stunning hairstyles their clients walk away with. When the time came to expand, the original Manhattan location had tin hiding under a false ceiling. When they opened their second location, they liked the look and feel of the authenticity so they decided to model it. Their new Brooklyn space is a reclaimed 1800s drugstore finished with premium Cuban Mahogany used by the original resident pharmacist so tin was a logical choice to compliment that.
"I looked online to find tin ceiling companies and American Tin seemed to have exactly the look we were after at an affordable price."
-- Russell Manley, Founder/Owner
REASONS FOR PURCHASE: Aesthetics, Ease of Installation, Affordable Price
Which type of installation did you choose?
"We choose the Nailup model for our vintage barber shop. The work guys had never installed one before yet they found it easy to do in a matter of a couple days and gave stunning results as you can see."
Are you happy with the purchase/would you use it again?
"Very much so. Many people think its the original ceiling from the 1890s building we occupy. I an currently restoring an 1880s Federal style house in the Hudson valley and will of course be using tin again!"
