Pinterest creates new hair pattern search technology tool for Black Women

The new tech tool allows women, especially black, users to categorize their searches by hair pattern and recognition of their hair types for inspiration

Pinterest has created a hair pattern search technology tool with Black, Brown, and Latinx Pinners in mind, that empowers women users to search for hair inspiration across hair types in the aspect of ”Wellness Living”.

The report on MSN tech news titled: A ‘milestone for racial equity in the world of coding’: This tool searches hairstyles by hair patterns was on the backdrop that race-based hair discrimination exists in the workplace, recreational centers, eateries, schools, and other public spaces

The new tech tool on Pinterest allows women, especially black, users to categorize their searches by hair pattern and bringing hair types that are often overlooked more recognition.

The tool allows users to look for hair inspiration with searches like “summer hairstyles” and sort results by choosing specific hair patterns and the options include protective styles, coily, curly, wavy, straight, and bald/shaved. Each option still offers a variety of different hairstyles and options for users to choose from and imitate, from updos to braids, twists, and colorful clips.

Pinterest also worked with hairstylists to identify the hair pattern categories and used artificial intelligence and computer vision technology to identify hair patterns in an image.

Director of inclusive products at Pinterest, Annie Ta, who confessed that they had a harder time finding hair inspiration on Pinterest, described it as “a first-of-its-kind technology’’ and said that it was important that Pinterest has content that is relatable and useful to everyone, especially Black, Indigenous and People of Colour (BIPOC).
