CLASP FOR BOBBED HAIR.
Application filed May 3, 1928. Serial No. 106,328.
The present invention relates to improve ments in hair fastener devices, and is more particularly adapted for use as a clasp or barrette for bobbed hair.
6 One of the important objects of the present invention is to provide a clasp or barrette of the above mentioned character which is of such construction as to prevent the accidental displacement of the fastener when 10 in the hair.
A further object is to provide a clasp or barrette of the above mentioned character wherein the free ends are formed in such a manner as to provide a means for receiving a maximum amount of hair between the arm or leg members of the fastener without disturbing the coifi'ure.
Another important object of the invention is to provide a hair fastening device of the 2 above mentioned character which is simple in construction, inexpensive, strong and durable and further well adapted to the purpose for which it is designed.
Other objects and advantages of the 1nvention will become apparent during the course of the following description taken in connection with the accompanying drawing.
In the accompanying drawing forming part of this application and in which like 3. numerals designate like parts throughout the several views:
Figure l is a side elevation of the hair fastener embodying my invention.
Figure 2 is an edge elevation thereof, and
86 Figure 3 is a side elevation of a modified form of the invention.
In the drawing, wherein for the purpose of illustration is shown the preferred embodiment of my invention, with reference to 40 Figures 1 and 2, the numeral 1 designates generally the improved clasp of barrette, the same being formed from an elongated single strand of resilient wire.
This strand of wire is bent back upon its intermediate ends in such a manner as to provide a relatively long arm or leg 2 and a shorter arm or leg 3. From thebend or bight portion 4, the arms or leg members 2' and 3 are curved outwardly so as to provide 60 the elongated loop portion 5. Below the loop portion 5, the arms or leg members 2 and 3 are disposed in abutting relation and as the clasp or barrette is formed of spring wire, the resiliency of the material will maintain the lower portions of the arms or leg members in abutting relation.
The lower end of the arm or leg members 2 and 3 are disposed in diverging relation as is clearly shown in Figure 1. This construction provides a means whereby a maximum amount of hair will be'permitted to enter the clasp without disturbing the coiffure. Furthermore, this arrangement will obviate the necessity of the person having to spread apart the free ends of the leg members with the fingers in order to facilitate the attaching of the clasps or barrette in the hair.
As is clearly shown in Figure 1, the lower end of the shorter arm or leg 13 is curved outwardly as indicated at 6, the lower end ofthe longer arm or leg 2 being curved outwardly as at 7 and thence inwardly as at 8. The lower free end of the arm or leg member 2 is disposed below the free lower end of the arm or leg member 3 and thus the strands of hair which are to be fastened by the clasp or barrette will be more easily and readily disposed between the diverging ends of the arms or leg members. Furthermore, by disposing the lower free end of the arm or leg member 2 inwardly as illustrated at 8, the hair fastener. will be prevented from injuring the scalp.'
The strands of hair which are to be fastened are adapted to be held in the looped portion 5 due to the abutting relation of the lower portions of the arms or leg members 2 and 3. Furthermore, the looped portion 5 may be of such size as to accommodate a sufficient amount of hair as may be desired.
In order that the clasp or barrette may more readily conform to the contour of the head the hair fastener may be fashioned in the manner as clearly shown in Figm'e 3, this being accomplished by curving the arms or leg members longitudinally. As the construction of the hair fastener shown in Figure 3 is otherwise substantially identical with the construction of the clasp or barrette disclosed in the other figures of the drawings, a further description thereof is thought unnecessary.
It will thus be seen from the foregoing description, that I have provided a very inexpensive clasp or barrette for use with bobbed hair, the simplicity in which the article is constructed enables the same to be readily and easily manipulated and at all times be positive and eflicient in carrying out the pur oses for which it is designed.
While I ave shown the preferred embodiment of the invention it is to be understood that minor changes in the size, shape, and arrangement of parts may he resorted to without departing from the spirit of the invention and the scope of the appended claim.
Having thus described the inventlomwhat ll claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is A clasp for bobbed heir formed of e single strand of resilient wire which is bent intermediate its ends to provide a pair of leg members, one of said leg members beingof greater length than the other. one, the
eemeee portions of said leg members adjacent the bend being spaced to provide a hair receiving loop, the portions of the leg members below said loop being disposed in abutting relation, the lower free ends of the leg members being disposed in divergin relation, the lower ends of the leg mern ers being curved outwardly, the lower free end of the long leg member being curved inwardly and terminating at a point below the lower free end or the shorter leg member.
In testimony whereof I efix my signature" JOHN D. rm.
