Augmented reality at your hairdressers
A different hairdresser that uses technology in his beauty service. You arrive and the experience begins. Instead of giving you the typical magazine, you go to a PC room where you select your hairstyle. A webcam then takes a picture of you and combines it with your selection so that you can see the possible results.
Why it matters
Beauty brands are beginning to introduce new technologies to their business. Will these technologies help brands stand out from their competitors or be perceived as gimmicks?
Ordinary inkjet printers are being turned into 3D printers that can print human skin cells onto wounds such as burns. Being able to print a perfect match to someone’s healthy skin, this new kind of printing could be a future alternative to skin grafts and may even enter the health and beauty category.
One Pure has developed a skin-care line that is 100% Halal, so permissible to use according to Islamic law. The products do not contain any pork residues (collagen / keratin / gelatin) or alcohol.
