Hair Salon Sets Up Shop in Converted Shipping Container

Heathcote locals are set to experience a unique trip to the hairdressers following the opening of innovative new salon, My Hair Shed, housed within a custom-modified shipping container from Royal Wolf. Featuring modern luxuries to ensure each client is treated to a pampering appointment, the salon is attached to the owner’s house and features an eye-catching 20 foot shipping container to form a stylish extension and homely environment.

My Hair Shed owner Leah said she and her husband modified the unit to include a built-in kitchen, storage for hair care products and fresh colour on the walls. “We wanted an extension that was not only simple to build and install, but would reflect the creative nature of my business, stand apart from a traditional salon and give clients something to talk about. I receive positive comments daily from my clients who love coming somewhere unique to get their hair done. “As a mother to a young child, having my business attached to home allows me to have the best of both worlds,” she said.

We are constantly amazed by the different ways our customers want to use shipping containers,” he said.
