Graduates from Royal College of Art have discovered a way to turn hair cuttings, that parlours throw away as waste, into sustainable eyewear named “Hair Glasses”.

The idea behind this is to “Go Green” by stopping the use of Petroleum-based plastic frames and use easily available, environment friendly and renewable resource, HAIRs. icon biggrin Hair Glasses: Eyeglasses Made Of Human Hair [PICTURES]

According to Azusa Murakami and Alexander Groves:

Because of the world’s rapidly increasing population, hair is and will continue to be in abundant supply. But how do you turn flimsy follicles into a durable yet lightweight structure? The answer lies in a plant-based bioresin that acts as a binding agent. No harmful substances are released during production, plus the resulting frames are 100 percent biodegradable when they’re no longer useful.

Made from hair and bioresin, the resulting frames are 100 percent biodegradable at the end of their lives.

The craftsmanship and quality of these eyeglasses are clear for anyone to see. Marked by a golden comb-shape insignia on the temples, each frame showcases strands of blonde, black, and brown hair as undulating wisps or braids that mimic tortoiseshell.
