‘Hair Glasses’: Eyeglasses made of human hair

Made from hair and bioresin, the resulting frames are 100 percent biodegradable.

Human hair has been turned into sustainalbe eyewear by two Royal College of Art students, Azusa Murakami and Alexander Groves.  Petroleum-based plastic or energy-intensive wire frames are a necessary evil for those who are not blessed with 20/20 vision.  “Hair glasses,” however, tap into a readily available and renewable resource: the millions of pounds of hair cuttings that salons across the United Kingdom throw away each year.
