HAIRPIN.
Application filed December-V15, 1927. Serial No. 240,131.
This invention relates to safety hair pins, and particularly to hair pins formed so that the points thereof will not injure the` skin of the wearer.
rhe objects `of the invention'y are to provlde a hair pin with folded parallel leg members held normally close together at one end by a loop or eye hinge of the resilient material from which the pin is made, at the opposite fend, and one of theleg members slightly shorter than the other and flared away from it to facilitate the ready insertion of the hair between, and the longer leg member pro.-
vided with a humpor bend'nearly oppoy site the flared end of the shorter one, the hump being curved to rest against the head of the wearer and hold away the tip end thereof, the latter being used for gathering up the hair'between themembers.
A further object` is to provide a hair pin with folded leg members made from an endless strip of suitable resilient `material with out any sharp or -abrupt points, and each4 member being composed of a pair of legs folded substantially parallel in shape of an elongated U, and held normally touching together near their closed sections bythe loops or eyes provided by the folded corners so that the hair pins will be held securely in position on the head by the compression of the hair between folded members.A l y A still further object is to provide a combination of the safety hair pin with an elasticband inserted between the folded leg members and retained by the eye loops for holding the pins in position when halr is rolled about the pin for crimping and curl- ,llVith theseA and other objects hereinafter set out, we have illustrated our invention by the accompanying drawings, in which;
Figure 1 represents a side elevation of our hair pin in preferred form;
Figure 2 represents a top plan of our preferred form, and Figure B represents the same form incombination with a rubber band held in the eye loops of the pin.
Figure 4 represents a modified form. of pin with the hinged or connected ends of the members widened both in material and in space between; y
Figure 5 represents a modified form of pin with perpendicular sinuous lines, and
Figure 6 represents a modified form, with sents a top plan of a modified form of pin with single legs provided with the safety lhump shown in Figure 1.
Like numerals on the different figuresrepresent like parts. 1 shows the upper members and 2 the lower members with an eye loop 'or hinge 3 whereby the two upper and two lower members are held normally compressed toward each other,vbut separated by a slight space 4 except beyond a point near their extended ends as at 5. The
pins are preferably made from some resilicnt material which may be either fiat or other form, but all from one piece of mate-I rial either by being stamped from sheetlU metal or of lwire with both ends welded to gether, as this formation leaves no sharp or abrupt points which often prove injurious on ordinary hair pins. As shown by the drawings, the two upper members are folded parallel with two lower, and both separated at 6 or at the hinge end of the pin, but in use or operation the pins are inserted in the hair from the horizontally closed ends, so that the desired amount of hair may be held between the two upper and lower members so v by the tension of the spring hinge or eyeV 3. In order to provide for easily inserting the pin close to the scalp and at the same time to-hold the inserting end 7 normally off from the scalp or face when the pin is in place, We provide a plurality of bends near thetip 7 -of the'lower member 2, shown as a downward bend `8 and an upward bend 9,
` then an outward horizontal tip 7 thus leaving a curved edge orhump 10 to rest against the face or scalp of the user. The closed tip 1l, of the upper member l, is also bent Aupward, then curved down and back to conform with the upper surface adjoining of the lower member 2, and this upturned tip 11, aids in the'insertion of hair between the upper 1 and lower members 2. The closed tip 7 of lower members extends outward and beyond the extremity of the closed end 11 ofthe upper members, and so provides a means Y for pickin face or sca p easily. And in order to make the pin still more comfortable for use of the wearer, we preferably construct the members 1 and 2 in aA long curved line or arc 12 upward in the center as shown in Figure 1. I
In using the pin in combination for curling or crimping the hair, an elastic band 13 up the hair from against thea-,-
lll
is inserted through the eyes 3 and between the members l and 2,l and the in thenrinserted into the hair with the desired'amount shown as 14 between the members, and the pinand enclosed hair rolled in the ordinary manner and the band then stretched over` the top ofthe hair and slipped beneath the extended tip 7 of the members 2 as shown in Figure 3.
In cases where the hair of the user is very thin, and hair pins are likely to fall from desired positions easily, it issometimes desirable to use a pin shaped as shown in Figure 4, with the shanks of the members l and .2 nearest the eye loop made heavier than the y loops act as abrace upward from the 'lower eye loop when on one sidel of the head.
Sinuous` linesmay also be given to thev corresponding members, either horizontally or perpendicularly, as shown in Figures 5. and 6, whichv alsol aid in holding the pins in,v
position. A
The specially formed and positioned bends 8, 9, and l0, and tip`s'7 may be adapt-b ed to pins formed with onlyv two single parallel legs as seen in Figure .7 so as to pro- .Vide for the ready placing ofthe pins in the hair, and for preventing the tips 7 from impinging against the skin of the user, andfwe l reserve the right to make various other modilications in the construction of our pins, without departing from the spirit of our invention.
Having described our invention, we claim: l. A' hair pin with parallel leg members one over the other, and connected and held near together by a resilient eye loop at one end, and the opposite ends of the legs of different lengths, the upper leg shorter than the lower and bent upward atan an le to form a guide for the insertion of han` be-l tween the ends, the tip -end of thelower leg extending outwardv on substantially the same plane as the Shanks of the legs, with a l bend downward in the lower 'leg to form a. hump beneath the same near the tip thereof, to hold the said tip normally7 skin ofthe wearer ofthe pin.
2. A hair pin formed with two pairsv of' parallel leg members one pair over the other,
and formed of one endless strip of material, the upper members folded over the lower members and normally held close` thereto by a resilient eye formed by the loop of the fold, the extended closed section of 'the lower legs being longer than the closed extended section of the upper legs, .with a down-l ward hump in the lower legs near the otitward extremity thereof to hold the extended tip away'from the headA of'the wearer, and the extremity of the upper leg flared away from the lower leg to facilitate the spreading of the legs when the pin is applied over the hair.
3. In combination, a lel legmembers folded one` over the. other and normally held'close together by a resilient eye loop of the fold at one end, the opposite end of the lower leg extending beyond the upper one, with a hump extending be neath the lower leg near the outer tip thereof, with an elastic band threaded through the eye loop.
In testimony whereof we affix our signatures.
