Your neighbourhood barbershop expands with second location in Headon Forest

Tommy Gun’s Original Barbershop opens later this spring

One of Canada’s most beloved barbershop brands is expanding to serve their Burlington clients north of the QEW. After a great deal of success at their current location on Appleby Line, Tommy Gun’s Original Barbershop will soon have a second location in the area to keep their clients looking their best.

Jennifer Quong is the owner of both Tommy Gun’s, and she’s excited to deliver a five-star experience to an even wider array of customers with their new store in Headon Forest.

“From the moment you walk in the door, to the moment you leave, it will be all about you,” Quong said. “We pay really close attention to the small details that others might miss. We make sure we know your history with a full consultation. You also receive a free beverage, you get your head massaged, you end with a hot towel experience, and that you leave with 100 percent satisfaction guaranteed.”

The Tommy Gun’s brand originated in Red Deer, Alberta, but they’ve grown to over 80 branches across Canada, the United States, Australia and New Zealand. Each location upholds the same pillar; treating the customer like gold and getting to know them like family.


Their stylists cater to a wide range of clients, young and old, from a child getting their first haircut at 18 months old, to a grandparent treating themselves to a cut at 98 years old. Everyone is welcome at Tommy Gun’s Original Barbershop.

One way the Burlington Tommy Gun’s stands out is a program they offer called “Quiet Cut Tuesdays”. On the first Tuesday of every month, the Burlington Tommy Gun’s creates an environment for sensory-sensitive guests where they turn down the lights and turn off the music and televisions.

“My background is in education, so I used to see a lot of kids with diverse needs,” Quong said. “I also have a nephew with down syndrome, and I know how challenging that is for my sister to find places that are inclusive to anyone suffering from sensory overload or anyone on the autism spectrum that struggles with bright lights and loud noises.”

They’ve had a great response from local families who have visited during Quiet Cut Tuesday, many of them able to bring their family member to get a haircut with a stylist for the first time outside the home. Many of their clients are grateful for this service and the barbershop’s ability to provide a haircut for sensory-sensitive guests.

Quong and her family are also very supportive of local sports teams through Tommy Gun’s, as sports have been integral to their lives. They’re proud sponsors of local hockey teams like the Eagles, Bulldogs and Raiders, the Burlington Bulls baseball organization, and the Burlington Stampeders football program.

Tommy Gun’s are also contributing members and proud supporters of the Burlington Food Bank, Woodview Mental Health and Autism Services, and many other charity events and opportunities within Burlington.  

“My husband and I truly feel like one of the reasons we bought a Tommy Gun’s and we opened it in the community that we live in is because we felt strongly about our ability to give back to our community,” Quong said.

“Whether it’s sports sponsorships, Quiet Cut Tuesdays, or offering a place for people new to Ontario or new to Burlington can come and feel welcome, that’s what we’re hoping to do.”

Look for the new Tommy Gun’s in Burlington to open in Headon Forest by late May or early June at 3550 Dundas Street, Burlington. You can also visit the Appleby Line store at 491 Appleby Line in Burlington.
