The Curling Iron
6,000 years ago
people used the curling iron to curl their hair, beards, and wigs.
curling irons were made out of iron rods or bronze rods.
the man was Hiram Maxim at age 26.
Hairdressers would test the iron on a sheet of paper before using on he customers to make sure tha iron wasnt too hot.
it was sold in drugstores and allowed better heat control.
The curling iron also made it easier and faster to curl hair which was done by using a spring clamp to help hold the hair down to curl it.
