Ethnographic: Three Typical Representative Characters

I am a college student studying art. I usually use a hairdryer after taking a bath in my dormitory. I have a lot of hair and a long length, so it takes a long time to dry my hair every time, about 40-50 minutes. After using the hair dryer for a long time, the body of the hair dryer will be hot, so I hope the hair dryer can improve the wind speed and shorten the dry hair time. I’m also not satisfied with the uniform shape of the hair dryer now. I hope to have a hair dryer with unique shape and more design sense.

I am a company employee and fashion lover. I usually use my hairdryer to do my hair before I go to work in the morning. My hair volume is not very much or very long, so dry hair is not a problem for me, and my use time is not very long, mainly used for blowing curly hair or bangs. It’s hard to satisfy my pursuit of fashion and design sense with the same hairdryer in the market now I hope to have a hairdryer full of fashion sense to match my other fashion objects.

I’m a manager of a company. I usually use a hairdryer at home after I have a bath at night. My hair volume is not very much, the length of hair is controlled in the shoulder position, and the general dry hair time is 20-30 minutes. Although this time is not too long, I hope it can shorten the dry hair time. I like the simple and special hairdryer.

Hairdryer Design

My target users are women aged 25-30, so the shape of hair dryer should come from the characteristics of women. My hair dryer was inspired by a kind of women’s hair style called twist braid. Twist braid is a kind of hairstyle that many women will try, which is very common. So this kind of modeling is not strange to women, but also a symbol of beauty.


According to the survey results, the sketch studies the shape of the hair dryer. Although the inspiration comes from the twist braid, the twisted shape can be adjusted; it is determined that the switch button is on the back, the air outlet changes from round to square, and the shape of the air inlet at the back.
