London designer Émilie Voirin has created a range of whips, shaving brushes and trinket boxes made of hair.

Called Bun Boxes, the hair is woven and wound into buns and used to top a series of pots of different shapes and sizes.

The usual short blunt bristles of a shaving brush are replaced with long flowing hair, also used for wooden-handled whips.

The pieces can be made with either human or synthetic hair in a range of styles and colours.

Here's a tiny bit of text from the designer:


About the Bun box: Boxes made from porcelain, lid made of hair.

About the whips and the shaving brushes: Almost usual hair objects (Whip, shaving brush)

These objects, normally designed to be sharp and blunt, take on a gentler character when made using human hair.
