Hairware is next to tap into the wearable tech sphere via a superbly connected weave

The wearable technology trend knows no bounds with the concept now coming to the fore within the beauty sector. A new brand named Hairware, with the tagline, “The conscious use of unconscious auto-contact behaviors,” is now translating hair-related gestures into modern-day messaging techniques.

Beauty Technology Designer Katia Vega has teamed up with IoT Specialist Marcio Cunha to create a range of conductive hair extensions for women that have futuristic capabilities. The product has the ability to transform a nonverbal message, such as twirling or stroking hair, into an actionable one, like sending a text message, posting your location, taking a selfie or even recording a conversation.
