ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the material invented by Ronald Thompson which is made from hair clippings and is said to replace products such as fiberglass in London, England. Thompson is a former assistant hairdresser and is now working on a range of chairs, made from his invention, under the South Bank University enterprise scheme. Thompson has written to the city mayor to request for a free postage on all hair salons that would provide him with about 10,400 tons of hair.
