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.
In the past, the only way of curling hair was to leave them in bulky rollers overnight. Today, technology has given us tools like the curling wand and curling iron. By using such appliances, busy working women or college students can save time and get great curls without having to visit expensive salons and parlors. A great deal of technology has gone in making the tools of this type. Gone are the days when one ended up damaging their hair due to extremely hot curling iron barrels. Today the negative ion technology has made it possible to have smooth curls without tugging or breaking ones hair.
Several serious accidents have occurred, especially during the early morning rush. Remember that the device is still electrically live even when the switch is OFF. 3) The most important thing you must do is Turn OFF the device and remove the plug as soon as you have finished using the tool. Naturally, you must never use the device in the shower or where it can fall accidentally in the tub or the sink. Also, if the device does fall unintentionally in the water, do not reach over and pull it out. First, switch OFF the device and remove the plug; only then you may remove it from the water.
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.
