During the period of Nazi persecution in Germany, Rose Evansky escaped to England as a refugee. 

In the 1960s, she would go on to invent a new way of drying hair - the 'blow wave' - which was completely different from the tightly permed styles of the 1950s. It involved using a hand-held blowdryer on her Mayfair clients to create a soft, natural look. 

This instantly earned her a reputation as one of the top hairdressers in London and went on to become the norm in hair drying.
