History of the Blow Dryer

The blow dryer, which is one of the indispensable tools for many women in the world, is produced by many manufacturers in the world in different colors, sizes and weights. But it had to go a long way for that. Professional Blow Dryers are indispensable for professional hair designers, along with scissors and comb-brush in salons today.

Alexandre F. Godefroy

There is no limit to the creativity of hairdressers. In 1890, Alexandre F. Godfroy, a French hair designer, invented the first blow dryer. Thanks to this invention, the heat coming from a chimney connected to the gas stove was drying the hair through a bonnet.


Exactly 30 years after the invention of Alexandre F.Godefroy, portable hair dryers were launched. This was originally a vehicle made from a vacuum cleaner, with additions, and was manufactured by Hamilton Beach Company and Universal Motor Company.


Gas-powered Hair Dryer was invented. Unfortunately, it did not last long. As a matter of fact, it was too harsh for the hair. Hanging dryers also began to be used during this period because portable hair dryers were very heavy and made of chrome-plated iron.


New models began to appear in the mid-1950s. It was the time for better designs and vibrant colors, with quiet engines and enclosed propellers. In this period, portable hair dryers were also invented and started to be used by hanging them on the shoulders.

Modern Times

Today, thanks to technology, we are faced with more diverse and complex hair dryers. Lighter, quieter, more stylish, more colorful, safer, more economical-environmental and more ergonomic… Of course, you should get support from your expert hairdresser to decide which blow dryer is the right one for you.
