How it works
Hairdressing has now been reinvented - and you're now in control of your hair. HairSense is a smart hair cutting device that automatically maps, learns and cuts complex hairstyles. It can recreate your salon haircut at home, automatically. Not just any haircut, but an exact replica of one of your own haircuts that you had styled in the salon. It's just like having your own professional stylist at home.
How does HairSense work?
HairSense maps hairstyles: After you arrive home from getting a new salon haircut, have someone glide HairSense through your hair. As it's moving over your head, it collects hair and measures the lengths. It maps over 5000 hair lengths points all over your head, perfectly capturing your haircut. You can save this model as one of your own personal styles, which HairSense will later use to recreate your haircut.
HairSense cuts hair: It's a fully personalised haircut at home whenever you need it. Select one of your saved styles and HairSense will recreate your haircut automatically. With exact and repeatable results. Using our patented 'hair-pixel' cutting technology, HairSense is able to accurately isolate hair with a 3x3mm scalp resolution, and cut each of these hair segments to any length. Meaning you get the same result as your hairdresser. No hairdressing experience is needed.
Always there for you
Hair stylists come and go, but HairSense is your forever stylist. Save all the styles you love and have access to them forever. Recreate your best cut every time in the convenience of your home, whenever it suits you.
