Hair is a Sustainable Material

Wait WHAT? Cue GaGa’s monsters in 3, 2, 1… because these are for real. It’s a collection of fashionable eyewear exploring the potential of human hair. The UK beauty industry imports 15 million pounds worth of human hair a year. Human hair has been reimagined as a viable and renewable material. Hair Glasses comprises of human hair with bioresin as a binding agent, the frames are 100% biodegradable and no harmful substances are released during production.

    It’s merely hair. And it has been processed so much that it’s unrecognizable. I see no reason to find it gross.

    Stylish designs and the material is unexpected. I love the fact that the frames are biodegradable too. Very awesome.
