How Dyson reinvented the hairdryer
The great British inventor has rejuvenated a host of otherwise humble household objects
The first thing that Stoffel van Wyk appreciated about his new Dyson hairdryer is how quiet it is. These days, he says: "I can have a discussion with my client over the sound of the hairdryer." Van Wyk has been a hairdresser for 25 years.
"I’ve lost a bit of my hearing because of the constant droning of hairdryers. This is far less intrusive," he tells the FM in his Sandton salon, Urban Sass.
