The First Hairdryer - 04/30/2013
Originally found (in French) on this page about the history of hairdos in the 19th century , is this bit on the first hairdryer: "In 1890 Alexander Godefroy, in his Paris beauty salon, invented a machine for drying hair in hair salons. It consisted of a sort of square metal bonnet, connected to a flexible tube which cast onto the hair heated air from a gas stove." Portable and handheld dryers were some time off -- about 30 years in the future. Advise for the proper way to towel dry the hair, as Victorians and Edwardians did, can be found here in the Shampoo post.
