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.

The fact whether the Marcel iron was a modification of Maxims device or an original creation is lost in history; so one cannot say for sure who the inventor of the curling wand is. In 1906, a German hair dresser by the name Charles L. Nessler used borax paste and hot irons to curl hair using eight hour long procedures! This was improved upon in 1914, by Eugene Sutter who used 20 heaters to reduce this curling time considerably. By 1920 a Parisian beautician Rambaud claimed to have perfected a system for curling hair, but a more significant invention came in 1945 when a French chemist by the name EugeneSchueller of LOreal laboratories used rods of varying diameters to control the depth and quantity of curls. By 1960, LOreal had also developed its polymer hairspray to hold the curls in place.
