In the past the only way of curling hair was to leave them in bulky rollers overnight. Today technology has given us tools like the curling wand and curling iron. By using such appliances busy working women or college students can save time and get great curls without having to visit expensive salons and parlors. A great deal of technology has gone in making the tools of this type. Gone are the days when one ended up damaging their hair due to extremely hot curling iron barrels. Today the negative ion technology has made it possible to have smooth curls without tugging or breaking ones hair.
The fact whether the Marcel iron was a modification of Maxims device or an original creation is lost in history; so one cannot say for sure who the inventor of the curling wand is. In 1906 a German hair dresser by the name Charles L. Nessler used borax paste and hot irons to curl hair using eight hour long procedures! This was improved upon in 1914 by Eugene Sutter who used 20 heaters to reduce this curling time considerably. By 1920 a Parisian beautician Rambaud claimed to have perfected a system for curling hair but a more significant invention came in 1945 when a French chemist by the name EugeneSchueller of LOreal laboratories used rods of varying diameters to control the depth and quantity of curls. By 1960 LOreal had also developed its polymer hairspray to hold the curls in place.
Additionally Sarah Breedlove Walker an African-American lady in Indianapolis Indiana claimed to have created and perfected a method for hair straightening using hot combs that were loosely based on hair-curling devices available in the past. The modern electric curling wand may even be attributed to Rene Lelievre and Roger Lemoine who in 1959 used electricity to heat up the barrels of the wands. Thus it is evident that many people have put in their efforts in creating a device for curling hair. The modern curling wand can be considered a product of all these efforts. The history of the device maybe vague and ambiguous but one thing is clear: the modern curling wand has indeed come a long way from the original methods of curling hair.
It is observed that large beauty salons offer a wide range of beauty treatments and services which makes them to keep different types of equipment in a salon. For example if there is a hair styling service then the process begins with washing the hair of a customer by making them sit on reclining shampoo chair which has a padded support for the neck. Then the customer is moved to a swivel salon chair which is of adjustable heights for getting proper position for a haircut. The style is then finished with a hand held blow dryer and if necessary giving hair rollers with the help of chair dryer. Several other hair styling equipment pieces include flat irons curling wands and hair crimpers.
