Hair simulation with l'Oreal
We have been working for three year on an industrial contract with l'Oréal, which ended in august 2006. The goal was to develop methods able to predict the shape and motion of hair as a function of the strand's physical parameters. After the first results on static hairstyles, we ended this project with a validated method for hair dynamics (see Section 6.2.3 ). L'Oréal will now use the resulting software for hair prototyping applications, with the final goal of first testing the new cosmetic products in virtual.
