"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 team that work at Eye Am Hair have been carefully handpicked by the owner, operator and entrepreneur, Chelsea De Main for their skill and fun loving personalities. They are masters of their game and each have a minimum 15 years experience in the industry both nationally and internationally. They are educators and all trained in the Curly Girl Method of haircutting. You can be assured these hair gurus know what they are doing with your mane and are also a little eccentric, up to date with the latest trends and open to alternative concepts. You can check out their profiles when you book with them here.
HOW WE CAN HELP MANAGE YOUR MANE
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.
how we like to think outside the salon
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, to name a few and now Tasmania has led us onto Marion Bay Falls Festival, 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.
mystery manes & THE 1 ON 1 EXPERIENCE
As an optional experience and due to the highly acclaimed success of our recent events - Eye Am Hair's @ Mona Museum as part of Mona Foma Festival 2018 & 2019, you can now opt for a consultation before your service, or completely leave it up to the experts and get a Mystery Mane haircut.
In addition to providing a unique service at festivals around the country, Eye Am Hair is an innovative on location wedding hair styling solution.
A Hairdresser that is completely confident and is able to come to you!
Her signature style is effortless looks that allow people to be the best version of their natural selves – be it a bohemian style or a vintage glam design. Chelsea's passion, love and flair for wedding hairdressing will ensure your day runs smoothly and with a relaxed and fun loving vibe.
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION
Red Square, the new location is the perfect fit for the Eye Am Hair caravan. It’s a hub, a unique venue space, and general great place to watch the sun go down with a drink in hand. The space is already host to massive events in Hobart and new developments are looking to turn the area into a central cultural precinct of Tasmania. The space already hosts acclaimed events such as Dark Mofo's Dark Park, Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra gigs, and Hoptober Fest at Hobart Brewing Co. It’s the perfect rustic/industrial cultural hub match for Eye Am Hair. We are just a stone’s throw away from Hobart CBD, and the Waterfront booth national and international. Visit our contact page for our address.
WHO IS NANCY THE COPPER CARAVAN?
She is an architecturally designed, climate controlled caravan salon that provides all the comforts of a world class salon. It's intimate, it's unique, its innovative and a little bit different.
Designed using around 90% of recycled materials and is a true work of art.
Eye Am Hair has been up and running since 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...."
