Salon owner invents cup to stop wine drinkers` freshly cut locks from landing inside

Women who like to enjoy a glass of wine during a haircut can now relax even more, thanks to one salon’s new invention.

New York City’s Thomas Taft salon has created a hair-proof wine vessel that shields hair snippets from falling into their glass mid-haircut.

The salon ingeniously took the concept of a to-go coffee cup and placed a wine glass inside of it – creating a hybrid that is built for convenience.

The glasses hold ten ounces of wine and are insulated to keep white wine at an appropriate chill – even when subjected to the hot breeze of a blow dryer.

Thomas Taft’s owner Melyssa Hurley told Gothamist: ‘A lot of customers didn’t even think about how much hair would fall in their wine in the past, but once they’ve enjoyed a hair and worry-free glass with us, they’re changed forever.’

Wine is offered to Thomas Taft-goers free of charge in the Upper East Side salon’s inventive cups.

Complimentary wine is considered an amenity typical of upscale New York City salons.
