COMB FOR FINGER WAVING Application filed December 23, 1930. Serial No. 504,265.
This invention relates to combs for use in dressing the hair by a method commonly known as finger waving. This method consists, briefly, in engaging a portion of the hair with a comb in the usual manner, drawing the hair by means of the comb into a smooth layer, then pressing the hair against the scalp by a finger held parallel to and in close proximity to the comb, and then by a deft turn of the comb in the hand of the operator, move the hair away from the scalp and up against the finger whereby to produce one of a series of Waves which by the proper application of liquid and heat, retain their form.
It has been customary heretofore to use for the above stated purpose, an ordinary comb the major portion of which is held in the hand of the operator, while a comparatively short end-portion is drawn through the hair.
This operation has been found to be inconvenient and disadvantageous in many respects. The ordinary comb is ill-adapted for the purpose. It is hard to manipulate especially in the turning motion that forms the Waves as hereinbefore explained, and it must be held loose in the hand of the operator to prevent injury to the skin. The hold of the hand upon the comb is insecure and unsteady and the position 01 the comb in the hand is undetermined, with the result that, without the exercise of more than ordinary skill and effort, the operator has but little control over the effects produced in the use of the comb for fingering waving.
Moreover, the formation of the teeth of the ordinary comb makes it difficult to produce even waves and the entire operation involves a waste of time and labor which obviously is a source of annoyance and distress to both the operator and the person whose hair is being dressed.
It is an object of the present invention to provide a comb especially adapted for use in linger-waving and having distinctive features of construction which enable the operator to produce uniform hair-waves without the exercise of more than ordinary skill and in less time and with less physical energy than is required in the use of the ordinary comb.
With this and other invention consists in the the toothed body part of which is at an angle to a handle formed and proportioned to fit in the hand of the operator and to give complete control of the movements of the comb," by which the waves are formed.
The handle has to this end incurved rests for the fingers of the hand in which the comb is held, and the toothed body portion of the comb has teeth of progressively increased lengths, which permit of engaging the hair uniformly along the entire length of the comb free from contact with the scalp beneath the hair, while the arm and hand of the operator are constantly in a comfortable, restful and perfectly natural position. The graduation of the teeth of the comb in the above stated manner, also permits of clearing the crest of Waves already formed.
An added advantage of a comb made according to the present invention resides in its easy use in any every partof the head including theregions around the ears.
embodiment of the invention has been illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in the several views larly designated and in which Figure 1 is a perspective view of the comb in the hand of the operator and in the position in which it is held while the wave is being formed,
Figure 2 is a perspective view of the comb n the hand of the operator, showing the position of the fingers in turning the comb,
Figure 3 is a side elevation of thecomb, and
Figure 4 is a top View of the same, looking in the direction of the arrow A in Figure 3.
The comb, as shown, consists of a body part 5 and ahandle 6 formed in angular relation to each other. The body part of the comb has the usual back 7 and in integral connection therewith, a series of parallel teeth 8 the lengths of which decrease progressively from the end of the comb to the end of the body part at which it adjoins the handle. The end-teeth 9 and 10 of the body part are. ens
objects in view, the
provision of a comb desired position and on of whichlike parts are similarged to protect the other teeth from breakage in the use of the device.
The handle of the comb is smooth and formed so as to provide a rest for the heel of the palm of the hand in which the comb is held, and so as to give a firm and secure control of the movements of the comb without the tiring grip required in the use of a comb of ordinary construction.
At the juncture of the body-part and the handle, is a shank-portion 12 curving inwardly at the upper side or back of the handle to provide a finger-rest 13, and recessed at opposite edges of the same to provide finger rests 14 and 15. These finger rests not only determine the proper position of the comb in the hand of the-operator and prevent it from sliding in the hand, but they are moreover of particular value in turning the comb in the hand when the wave is being formed. 7
Referring to Figure 1 of the drawings, the operator holding the comb in one hand with the thumb and index finger thereof in the finger-rests 15 and 14, engages the hair with a finger 16 of the other hand after the hair has been drawn into a smoothand even layer by downward movement of the comb. The finger 16- is held in substantially parallel relation to the body-part oat the comb and by turning the latter, the hair is pushed outwardly from the scalp and against the finger to produce the desired wave. The turning movement of the comb effort on the part of the operator in the manner illustrated in Figure 2, it being observed that the handle turns easily in the hand while the index finger of the hand moves naturally: from the finger-rest 141 at the edge of the shank portioninto the curved rest 13 at the upper s deof the same.
In other words, it'maycomb, by means Ofxits finger-rests; is 1111 crumed for axialzrotation in the hand of the operaton whileby the same means its position in; the hand is predetermined while it longitudinal displace v is firmly held against ment.
While I do not desireto be. limited by proportional dimensions, it. is; desirable that the length of the body part of the comb.- be such that: only as. much hair is'engagedas can be worked to advantage in one operation,
and that the handl'eot the samebe of snfli 'cient length to extend through the; hand. 0t

is efiected with little.
be said that the" V graduated lengths of'the teeth on the body part have been stated What I claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:
1. A comb for finger-waving, having a toothed body part, a plain handle at an obtuse angle with relation thereto, and a shankportion between the handle and the bodypart, providing determinate rests for fingers of an operator.
2. A comb for fingerswaving, having a toothed body part, a plain handle'at an obtuseangle with relation thereto, and a shankportion between the handle and the bodypart, providing determinate rests for fingers of an operator, the teeth of the body part decreasing in length progressively from the end of the comb to the end of the body part adjacent the shank-portion.
3. A comb for finger-waving, having a toothed body part, a plain handle at an ob tuse angle with relation thereto, and a shankportion between the handle and the bodypart, having an incurved finger-rest at the top of the comb, and a recess providing a finger-rest at a side of the same.
4. A comb for finger-waving, having a toothed body part, a plain handle at an obtuse angle with relation thereto, and a shankportion between the handle and the bodypart, having an incurved finger-rest at the top of the comb and recesses providing opposite finger-rests at the sides of the same.
5. A comb for finger-waving, having a toothed body part, a plain handle at an obtuse angle with relation thereto, and a shankportion between the handle and the bodypart, having recesses providing oppositefinger-rests at the sides of the comb.
6. A comb for finger-waving, toothed body'part, a plain handle at an obtuse angle with relahaving a tion thereto, and a shank-portion between the handle and thebody-pa'rt, providing determinate rests for fingers of an operator.
7. A combv for finger waving having a a plain handle formcomb, and having recesses providing oppositefinger rests atthe sides of the same to] provide a fulcrum for turning the combin' the 7 hand of the operator.
Intestimony whereof I hereunto afiix my signature.
MAY NEWBY.
