Ormond E1022 hairdryer

Accession number 1986.294

Brown plastic hairdryer in a matching brown plastic box with a mirror inside the lid next to the original cardboard packaging labelled 'Ormond the better built electric hairdryer'

The earliest of the classic hairdryers displayed is the Ormond E1022, which was bought in 1958 from Downes and Davies, Stanley Street, Liverpool. It is made of Bakelite and has a handy mirror and comb within the vanity case.

Later hairdryers became much more attractive using brighter colours and innovative designs.
