Two UK designers are using human hair in an off-beat way and putting it on your face.
I saw this story come through from Refinery 29 this week and I haven’t been able to shake it. Two artists from the UK have begun exploring the potential of human hair for beauty in surprising ways. Brits import nearly 15 million pounds of human hair each year, which inspired the duo to design frames that are completely biodegradable; comprised of just hair and bio-resin.
I am a fan of anything quirky and bizarre, and although this whole topic reminds me of finding hair in my food during elementary school lunches, I still give it my stamp of approval. The hair glasses shown on Studio Swine are in fact fashionable, and if its helping mother nature, then I can’t really complain. It’s a worth a trip over to the site just for this really interesting pig chair thing-y featured on the home page.
Side Note/Cultural Complaint
I can’t help but feel just the slightest bit miffed at the fact that as a woman I spend my days trying to banish unwanted hair forever and now its acceptable to wear it as an accessory on my face? At least it’s biodegradable, right?
