Needs and Wants
The hair curler was needed because women of the 1800s needed a more classy look. The hair curler would do what they wanted and make their hair look spontaneous for special occasions.
The Inventor
The man who invented the first electric hair curler was Hiram Maxim. He invented this appliance in 1866. Hiram Maxim was an American and was only 26 years old when he created his first of many patents that he would designed.
There has a prolific amount of improved features that have developed from the needs and wants of people displayed in the 25 millimeter ceramic hair curler being:
Up to 180°C professional heat
Double layer ceramic for softness, shine and protection of hair
10 heating settings/dial
Automatic safety cut off
Instant heat up
Swivel power and easy maneuverability
The Science behind the Curls
The internal of a Hair Curler contains two metal elements that conduct electricity gradually over time. This resistance causes heat that builds up. This is caused by the electricity trying to pass through these
The Materials Origin and Benefits
Ceramic: Ceramic is a clay and is one of the oldest clay that man has used. The electric hair curler has benefited from using this because it is Healthy Infrared (being of electromagnetic radiation) Heat and Negative Ion (invisible particles that contain electric charge) Technology. Ceramic is usually the least expensive out of a lot of other options. Ceramic is Best for:
Thin to thick hair
Normal to moderately damaged hair
Regular use

Teflon: Is a man-made type of plastic that has been used consistently through-out history.
Titanium: Is an element that is found in Earth's crust.
Stages of Development
His helpful product went through multiple stages of work from some bits of metal that required a person to waste time to heat it up. It has been improved over time now to a machine in a split-second can reach up to 180°C.
The Curlers Problem
There were many issues discovered when the hair curler was put to use. Some of the main problems include:
Risk of getting burnt.
Cheaper ways of doing the exact same thing.

How have the Needs of People Shaped Technology?
By Ella Salter and Olivia Aloisi

Plastic, Teflon, ceramic, tourmaline, metal, or titanium are the five prime materials that are effectively used to accomplish the finished product of any hair curlers. Each of the key materials have divergent affects on how the product works and how affective it is on users hair.
The Electricity
The Electricity is this product's power source, the electricity is usually supplied through a cord connected to a power point. The electricity flows from the power point through the cord and into the Hair curler causing resistance from the elements.
How have the
needs of people shaped Technology?
In Conclusion the Hair Curler has changed in many ways because of the needs of people, as has technology in general an example the hair curler being shaped because of people's needs is that it went from a circular piece of plastic to an electric appliance with many useful upgrades that have been made.
