Hair trimmings at barbershops and beauty salons are often swept up and discarded. But a former London hairdresser, who is now a researcher at London South Bank University, has found a use for the excess cuttings — a chair made out of human hair. In the future, additional products, such as structural beams, shoes, clothing, mascara and boat parts, may also be made out of human hair, which is 'a cut above' fiberglass and many other petroleum-based products, according to the chair's inventor, Ronald Thompson.
