Helmet hair is a problem that every non-bald biker faces. Male or female, it's hard to keep the doo looking new after a long ride. Luckily for the fashion conscience, Daniel Don Chang has created a helmet that will keep you looking beautiful mile after mile.
The Luxy helmet was inspired by "mod girls and fashion hairstyles" by Chang, a product designer from Pasadena's Art Center College of Design. Chang says that the Luxy helmet is targeted toward woman scooter riders and he hopes that his design will increase helmet use.
"Luxy is a women's motorcycle helmet for commuting and casual motorcycle riding. Its purpose is to increase helmet use. As many riders are female, the distinctive and unique look sets it apart from existing helmets, proving that style and safety can coexist," Chang writes on his website.
The helmet isn't being produced for consumer consumption yet, but it is an interesting idea. A lot of people don't wear helmets because of the way they look. Maybe a little fashion influence is what's needed to increase helmet use.
