Karl Ludwig Nessler (2 May 1872 in Todtnau, Germany - 22 January 1951 in Harrington Park, New Jersey, USA) was the inventor of the permanent wave. Karl Nessler was the son of a shoemaker from Todtnau, a small town located high in the Black Forest, just beneath the Feldberg. He got the idea for the perm early in his youth. He began an apprenticeship which he dropped. He worked in Basle and Milan in different jobs, learned Italian and French and finally moved to Geneva; there he worked again as a barber and hairdresser and finished his apprenticeship. Adapting to the French-speaking environment, he called himself Charles Nessler.show more
