A Chair Made of Hair!

Graphic Work done by ChoiceOMG

Apparently, crazy people have been trying to transform hair into all sorts of different things. One particular hairstylist named Ronald Thompson took it upon himself to figure out how to not throw out hair clippings any more  At the same time, Ronald also needed a new chair for his salon. So, Ronald did exactly what any reasonable man would do –  make a chair out of hair from the garbage.

Ronald took about 5 pounds of hair clippings from his salon, mixed it with a hard resin, and made the world’s first ever hair salon chair made mostly out of human hair.  Ronald loved hair so much he wanted to keep it forever.

Just how everyone keeps their favourite things- encased in a hard synthetic resin.

Salons all over the world throw tons of hair in the garbage everyday. In fact, in the source website, he says that in the UK alone over 220,000 tons of hair are thrown out each year. That’s over 44 thousand chairs worth! And Ronald, being resourceful and somewhat bonkers, wants to turn that hair waste into weird things. Ronald wants the world to stop wasting our precious locks; He wants to live in a world in which all products are made from renewable resources, a world where people obsessively keep all their hair clippings in large duffel bags and try to sell you the weird things that they made of out it.
