"Helping people to think outside the salon."
This fully functional hairdressing salon in the form of a copper clad caravan offers an experience that is truly unique.
The architecturally designed, climate controlled interior provides clients with all the comforts of a world class salon. It's intimate, it's unique, its innovative and a little bit different.
The salon itself was designed using around 90% of recycled materials and is a true work of art.
Red Square, the new location is the perfect fit for the Eye Am Hair caravan, being a hub for festivals such as Dark Mofo's Dark Park, a venue for the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra, to name a few and you can go past a drink in the Red Shed's Hobart Brewing Co. or a coffee from McVilly Cyles and Cafe. Hence the perfect match of this rustic/industrial cultural hub and Eye Am Hair.
what we do
"Eye Am hair is a gender neutral salon with highly creative hair artists that can do both alternative and more classic hair styles depending on your taste.
Services at this top hair salon include haircuts, hair colours, hair treatments (including the anti frizz smoothing treatment keratin), hair washing and blow-drying, braiding, beard grooming, styling and wedding hair.
We also do music festivals and events and have gained quite a following in the past few years on the mainland set up at festivals such as Lorne Falls, Rainbow Serpent, Laneway, Queens Cliff and Pitch to name a few and now Tasmania has led us onto Marion Bay Falls, Mona Foma and A Festival Called Panama.
Most recently, Eye Am Hair created a performance art installation concept called The Submissive Salon. It explored the idea of letting go and allowing the hair & make up artists and massage therapists to create in a red dungeon that celebrated the darkness of the winter solstice.
It's a dream come true to be able to do our craft in such incredible locations and meet extraordinary people. We attend to the musicians and artists back of house and can become an actual green room, or to festival goers as a retreat from the elements of nature in a luxurious space that welcomes everyone.
Silent sessions, mystery manes & THE 1 ON 1 EXPERIENCE
Due to the highly acclaimed success of our most recent event - Eye Am Hair's-Silent Salon @ Mona Museum as part of Mona Foma Festival 2018, you can now opt for a silent session experience or completely leave it up to the experts and get a Mystery Mane haircut. There's also the 1 on 1 service option which allows you to chatter away also.
In addition to providing a unique service at festivals around the country, Eye Am Hair is an innovative on location wedding hair styling solution.

She is also an ambassador of Evo Hair Care and educator for both Evo and Cloud Nine- the premium hot tool brand.
"I founded Eye Am Hair in 2015 as a way to change how we can experience hairdressing. there were things that just didn't work for me, such as conforming to the norm. As a result of this, I started thinking about how much I loved hairdressing and what I could take out of mainstream salon environments that aren't essential for operating and what doesn't work for me. A caravan seemed the perfect place to decentralize hairdressing culture that appeals to people who like to do things a little differently...."
Chelsea is a specialist in her field and a specialist curly hair hairdresser. Add a touch of Sassoon style precision cutting techniques, colour expert skills, good taste to her repertoire and it's fair to say, you've got yourself an upmarket yet boutique & unique salon experience all round.
