The story

Dear hairdressers of the world. 

My name is Vigdis Marthinsen. I am a dedicated, professional hairdresser, who understands firsthand the stresses that our profession puts on our body, shoulders and arms. I’ve been running my own salon in Trondheim, Norway, for over 30 years. I’ve trained many talented apprentices over my time, and it saddens me to see many of them leave the profession due to injury from strain.

Blow-drying is a large part of our work, and while the mobile phone has evolved over the last 30 years, changing from the size of a small brick to a sleek pocket computer, the professional hair dryer has essentially remained unchanged. That is until now.

I could not sit idly by and watch these talented young stars leave the industry that we all love. I care for the well-being of my colleagues. And if there was no one out there that could design a professional hair dryer for us, that could relieve our physical strain, then I would have to do it myself.

And that’s exactly what I did.

I designed Dual Air using my knowledge of the industry and the need for a more ergonomic blow drying solution. A ground breaking technology that has been patented worldwide.
I hope to improve the health of hairdressers around the world with my innovative design, reducing strains and pains one salon at a time.

I did it because I really care!
