These Early Hair Dryers from the 1920’s

The famous hooded hair dryer of Godefroy was copied by people from all over the world and became the primary tool in hair salons. It includes features such as heated coils in a single helmet and articulable nozzles. In 1991, a patent was granted to the first person to experience a handled hair dryers.

At that time, many portable dryers made a few problems. Some of them were being heaved, produced barely warmer air, and electrocuting the users. Salon hair dryers were the best option not long after the handheld dryers improved in aesthetics, power, and safety.

Here we take a look back at the earliest hair dryers made.
