Hair Affair

Designers use locks as foundation material for accessories and art

Implications - Designers often look to eccentric and offbeat materials in the creation of their pieces, but perhaps none are more strange than human hair. An increasing number of products today are crafted with human tresses, a seemingly bizarre design direction but one that definitely renders any product unique. Because no person's hair is the same, the use of locks as material creates a product that is inherently individualistic.
