How did curlers appear


Something similar to modern hair curlers existed in ancient Greece. Archaeologists have discovered steel rods that Greek women used to create curls. Such rods were called kalamis. Only special masters - calamisters - could make a hairstyle with their help. The wealthy residents of Greece came to the kalamisters, who twisted their hair on such rods, and then dissolved them, weaving ribbons, decorating them with tiaras or hoops. Those who did not have the opportunity to pay for the services of a kalamistra were forced to braid wet hair in braids, dry naturally, and then unravel, self-styling their hair.
In ancient Rome, steel rods or cylinders were heated, and then twisted their hair. After the calamis was cool, they were removed and hair was combed. In Africa, natural materials were used instead of metal. The women soaked the vines with the juice of special herbs, and then they twisted their hair on them, getting dense small curls.


In the second half of the seventeenth century, when the baroque style spread in Europe, which was characterized by wealth, pomp and pretentiousness, the curlers of evolution received a new round of evolution. The barber women made their hairstyles complex, decorating with flowers and sometimes even with fruits. Hair was wound on hot metal rods or nails. But the French noticed that it harmed the hair, and invented papilotki. Papilotka was a small roller of cloth or paper. Before winding, the hair was moistened with water, and the papillots themselves were fixed on the head with the help of a cord or thread. Have a luxurious curls was made for both women and men.


Papillots were made of fragile materials, and therefore almost every time it was necessary to re-twist a new batch of rollers. Over time, instead of paper and fabric, they began to use wooden or bone, and then plastic rollers, on which they twisted their hair and fixed it with rubber bands or metal clips.
Once there was no one to Kramer from Sweden who had the idea to make holes in plastic curlers to speed up the process of drying hair. Believedthat later he proposed to make small teeth on plastic, which prevented premature disentangling of curls and allowed to get rid of the �creases�.
The word "curlers" was first used in the western part of the province of Brittany (France). Residents of the town of Biguden on holidays put on high cylindrical headgear, which they received the name of curlers. Wooden papilotki shaped like these hats. So in many European languages included the word "Biguden", later turned into "curlers".
