I was reading though my notebooks when I found a quite remarkable note about something that is so commom in todays life but often unquestionable how it began until it latest form and shape.
I am speaking about permanent wave hair machine!
It was back in 1904 when a German hairdresser, Karl Nessler (later know as Charles Nestle) began his new invention. His wife was the first one to experiment it what according with documents ended with complete burnt hair as well as some scalp burns.
Working in London, he was pioneer of the use of an electric machine which permanently waved women's hair. After trying it in his wife his invention got better and better till the point of been used for many people in London, 1909.
This gentleman got an remarkable history of life. By the time he was a german living in UK, he got immediatly arrested in the World War I. After his arresting , Nessler ran away from London to New York where he got the idea how remarkable his work was by the time he saw some resemble machine like his one eventhough most of them were not working properly. So his first idea was to open a hairsalon and since that Karl Nessler got plenty of new salons from Chicago to Palm Beach passing by Philadelphia and Florida. This way the german hairdresser made his impire.
