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.
