Helmet Dryer, 1930
This version blasted hot air over the entirety of the head to thoroughly dry each section, taking up to two hours in total for longer lengths.
Dual Sided Dryer, 1930
Perfect for setting the plaited and waved styles popular at the time, this dryer blasted both sides of the head using heat lamps.
Hooded Dryer, 1934
The helmet shape of this version, displayed at a hairdressing hair salon in London, soon became the standard in salons.
Freestanding Dryer, 1935
The freestanding nozzle of this dryer, being used at a beauty school in New Jersey, allowed the stylist more control over where to direct the heat—not to mention, was much easier on the client's neck than the helmeted versions.
