how it all begun

Tincanstylist Story

Tegan’s studio is like no other. Every piece has a purpose and a story to be told. 

The Tincanstylist was inspired by a simple idea – to create a comfortable and inviting mobile hairstyling studio for those seeking a personalised, one-on-one experience outside of the confines of a traditional salon.

After investing in a very special 1970s Millard caravan, Tegan and her fiancé Tom embarked on a project to custom build and refurbish the caravan’s original frame into something truly unique.

Over four months the studio was constructed, with many special pieces to give the Tincanstylist that little extra character and charm.

The bench tops came all the way up from our family’s farm Binginwarri, Holbrook NSW, where a Tasmania Indian cedar wood was planted 60 years ago in honour of a couple’s wedding day. Now, these bench tops live on forever, spreading the couple’s love to all who enter the Studio.

The Tincanstylist’s door is one of Tegan’s favourite pieces. It has been revived from Burleigh Secondhand and while we’re unsure of its story, we just love how welcomes our guests with its rustic charm.

Our bench seat cushions also come with a lot of love love, handcrafted all the way from Wagga Wagga NSW from our Nana and Aunty’s store Simply Stitches
