Alexandre Godefoy  was the inventor of the electric hair dryer, which was invented in 1890. Well, at the beginning they used a vacuum since air went in the vacuum and hot air cam out. And it is important to history because it has made a change into women drying their hair faster and since the use of a vacuum was large and heavy, they created the hair dryer, and since it was the first time a hair dryer came to history it is more important.
