Crazy Omaha Facts - Did you know?
Did you know that the hair curler was invented in Omaha?! In 1936, the Tip Top Products company patented a design for a simple metal hair curler called the Tip Top Easy Curler. The company kept innovating hair products, and by 1964 Tip Top Products had 24 patents. For more than 40 years, the products were manufactured at North 16th and Cuming Street. The company would eventually be sold off and now the only remnant to be found is the old factory which has been turned into the Tip Top Apartments.
