Travel Hair Dryer and Straighteners

Compact solution for a set of stylised hair electrical items

The project, in collaboration with PBFA, was to design and develop a hair dryer and hair straighteners for a highly compact and portable travel set to be sold in Marks & Spencer. It features a removable, interchangeable cable for use on both products. The products offer space saving advantages over current products, which often neglect the need for an effective cable management solution. The rotary switch on the hair straighteners is another USP which offers advantages of convenience and reassurance. They have been styled as a range, and draw influence from a more delicate and refined approach to design detail.
