How it works
Hairdressing has been revolutionized. HairSense is a smart device that can give you a salon quality haircut at home automatically. Not just any cut, but an exact replica of one of your own haircuts that you had styled by your hairdresser in the salon. It's just like having your own professional stylist at home.
How does HairSense work?
HairSense maps hairstyles: After you get a new salon haircut, when you get home, have someone run HairSense over your head. As its moving, it pulls hair in to measure the lengths. It maps over 5000 hair lengths points all over your head, perfectly capturing your haircut. It saves this model as one of your own personal styles. You can map and save as many of your favorite hairstyles as you like. It only takes around 5 minutes to map a full haircut.
HairSense cuts hair: HairSense can then give you a fully personalised haircut at home whenever you need it. Simply have someone run HairSense over your head and it automatically cuts your hair to one of your saved salon styles. As its moving over the head, it pulls hair in and cuts it to the correct length automatically. HairSense is able to dynamically cut hair to any length at any point over the head with a 3 mm x 3mm scalp resolution - meaning the resulting cut is as good as your stylist. You get fresh salon quality cut at home. No hairdressing experience is needed.
Hair stylists come and go, but HairSense is your forever stylist. Save all the styles you love and have access to them forever. And recreate your best cut every time in the convenience of your home, whenever it suits you.
