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'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 in a digital model. You can save this model as one of your own personal styles, which HairSense will later use to recreate your haircut. We track the device's location on the head using in-built vision tracking. A depth camera references its current view against a 3D model of the head to provide precise head tracking down to a few millimeters.
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 consistent results, that are as good as the original haircut. Using our patented 'hair-pixel' cutting technology, HairSense is able to accurately isolate hair with a 3mmx3mm 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.

Update 25 June 2021 - We're funded and well under way to building our third and final prototype.
Update 1 October 2020 - Our second prototype is about a month away from completion. This is a handheld device able to do a haircut in around 10 minutes. The goal is to get this down to 4 minutes. This latest prototype is a complete overhaul of the technology with massive improvements. Stay posted!
Update 24 Feb 2019 - We've done it! The world's first replicated haircut has been completed automatically.
Provisional IP has been filed in 6 countries.
The future aim is to combine the system with AI to allow customers to buy new haircut styles in store, and have these instantly modified to fit their head shape and hair growth pattern.
