A concept of hair dryer designed for man, that fit different men's wingspans.
Question
How to improve the efficiency of the hair dryer and meet the needs of male?
如何提升吹風機的使用效率並且符合男性需求?
User experience
I am one of the users, explore the problem points of the product through the operation process, and determine the design direction. During the process, three major problems encountered by male users, found as the entry point of this project.
本身是使用者客群,透過實際的操作流程探索產品的問題點,刻意觀察並定義問題,定義設計方向,過程中也發現男性使用者的會遇到的三大問題作為本次專案的切入點。
Insight

1.Product Demand
Men pursue the use efficiency of products, and the swing range is relatively fast in the process of blow-drying, which causes the wires to be entangled and easy to get knotted.
男性追求產品的使用效率,吹髮的過程擺動幅度較快速,造成電線糾纏收納容易打結。

2. How to use
Because of the emphasis on efficiency, the hair drying process does not use the non-dominant hand to dry the hair, so the hair behind the non-dominant side cannot be dried reliably.
因為講求效率,吹髮過程不會使用換非慣用手作吹髮動作,因此非慣用邊後方的頭髮無法確實吹乾。

3. Product Interface
​​​​​​​For the control of air volume and temperature, men only use the same mode.
風量及溫度大小的控制,男性基本上只使用同一段位做為每次吹髮的模式。

Prototype
Grip Feature
The handle can be adjusted back and forth to adapt to the needs of different men's arm spans. One-handed hair drying will not be limited by the arm span, resulting in the trouble of being unable to dry your hair in pursuit of efficiency.
Simplified mode
I simplified the product operation into two parts, switch and air volume temperature. The one-button press that combines air volume and temperature into one saves user efficiency.
Rotating Structure
1. Hair dryer mask adjusts the angle of the wind.
2. The bottom rotating structure prevents the kink caused by the swing of operation. 
    Light color to identify three different modes.
Detachable Design
Fans and air inlets and air outlets are prone to dust, and the cover can be removed to clean the dirt.
Thanks for watching!
