So it is written
the hairdryer was invented back in 1890 by Alexander Godefroy. He actually got the idea from the vaccum cleaner. Supposedly back in the day, folks used the vaccum cleaner to dry their hair.
Alexander invented it for usage in his hair salon in France. It wasn't portable or handheld, but instead could only be used by having the woman sit underneath it, a hair hood dryer.
They came in many shapes and sizes...

a few months ago my mom-in-law and I went antiquing and on our jaunt we stumbled upon this...
Finding this dryer definately brought back memories for me.
Back in the day my mother had one and my sisters and I used to use it.
We would wash our hair and then roll it with sponge clip curlers
and put the hair dryer cap on...let the drying begin!
Talk about a tight curl!
I'm telling on myself aren't I? No really, I'm only 29!!!
Does this bring back memories for you?
Hope you have a WONDERFUL WEEKEND!
