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.
The history of the curling wand can be traced back to the year 1866 when an American born British citizen by the name Hiram Maxim first obtained the patent for the device. Also, two Frenchmen, Maurice Lentheric and Marcel Grateau could be accredited with first using the concept of applying heated tongs for curling hair, by early 1900. Hair curled in this manner also came to be known as Marcel curls or waves. The device invented by Grateau was called Marcel tongs. The advantage of the Marcel tongs over its predecessors was that it gave longer lasting, and deeper curls.
The tanning salons use the most expensive equipments but have the least number of salon equipments. Tanning salons keep tanning beds in their salons depending upon the size of the salon which can be anywhere from one or two to dozen and more. The tanning beds work as a capsule in which the salon client is lied down on a tempered surface and then a cover is pulled down over them. To keep the neck and head propped, a pillow is also provided which allows the face to tan along with the body tan. Other equipments included in the salons require the client to stand in a tan booth which looks like an apparatus.
The curling wand or curling iron is one of the most commonly used appliances for convenient, at-home hairstyling. While the present generation might believe that most of such styling tools and appliances are modern inventions, in reality; they are simply modifications made to devices which made their debut centuries ago. Indeed, since many centuries, men and women alike have been known to be obsessed with curly hair. In fact, it was a common habit for men to use tongs heated in fire for curling the hair on their heads as well as their beards! These methods were rather unrefined and many times, such crude techniques ended up burning and damaging hair.
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.
