Description

Oct. 23, 1934. J. c. ROBINSON 1,977,920
HAIR COMB Filed Nov. 18, 1935 dmc 11 Patented Oct. 23, 1934 UNig STATES www PAT
HAIR 00MB Jacqueline Crawford Robinson, Dallas, Tex. Application November 18, 1933, Serial No. 698,553 3 claims. (c1. .lez-3s) This invention relates to new and useful improvements in hair combs.
One object of the invention is to provide improved combs for setting or waving the human hair.
A particular object of the invention is to provide a pair of hair combs so connected and arranged as to be easily and quickly used by an individual to set or wave her own hair without the aid of another person.
Another object of the invention is to provide a pair of resiliently connected combs having their teeth directed toward each other, whereby the hair may be gathered up between said opposed teeth and the combs pulled together by the resilient connection to form the gathered hair into a wave or set.
A further object of the invention is to provide improved hair combs resiliently connected so as to come together when released and thus hold the gathered hair rmly in place; and whereby fiat portions may be formed as well as waves.
A construction designed to carry out the invention will be hereinafter described, together with other features of the invention.
The invention will be more readily understood from a reading of the following specication and by reference to the accompanying drawing in which an example of the invention is shown, and wherein:
Figure 1 is a view of the head of a woman having combs, constructed in accordance with the invention, in position in her hair for forming a Wave therein,
Figure 2 is a perspective view of said combs drawn into overlapping position by the springs,
Figure 3 is an isometrical view of the combs spread apart and turned into parallel relation so as to be inserted in the hair,
Figure 4 is a transverse sectional view of the same,
Figure 5 is a cross-sectional view of the combs overlapping, and
Figure 6 is a similar view of the combs with their teeth intermeshing.
In the drawing the numeral 10 designates an elongated hair comb and 11 a complementary comb. These combs are substantially duplicates and may be made of any material suitable for the purpose. Each comb has a longitudinal back 12 which may have a rib 13 along its edge.
Closely spaced teeth 14 extend from the back of each comb. It is preferable to make the teeth slender so as to give them considerable flexibility r and also to curve them. By curving or convoluting the teeth, corrugated or wave-shaped spaces 15 will be provided therebetween. When the hair is gathered into the spaces 15 and the teeth of one comb overlapped or engaged between N the teeth of the other comb, the convoluted 'w spaces will induce waving orcurling of the hair. However, straight teeth maybe used.
It is desirable to use combs made of flexible material and which are bowed from end to end, such combs being now in common use. On the rib 13 of each comb and near the end thereof I mount a post 16 having a lat base 17 which is fastened to the face of the rib or side of the comb by rivets 18. At the outer end of each post an 0 eye 19 is provided. A pair of coiled springs 20 have their ends connected in the eyes 19 of the posts and it is obvious that the springs serve to pull the combs to each other. The posts 16 are of sufficient height to hold the springs connected thereto out of the way of the hair which is gathered up between said combs when the same are in position in the hair.
In using the combs, the operator grasps one 1n each hand and swings them outwardly under tension of the springs 20, into parallel relation with each other (Figures 3 and 4). The points of the teeth of the combs are then engaged in the hair Y while still spaced apart in this position. By swinging the teeth of the combs inwardly through the hair, the hair is gathered up between the combs. 8 When swinging inwardly, the combs will either overlap each other (Figure 5), or the teeth will intermesh (Figure 6). In either case a quantity Y of hair will be caught therebetween and it is obvious that the amount of hair gathered between the combs determines the size of the wave. The operator can readily control the amount of hair f caught between the combs by merely spreading them, under tension of the springs. The farther apart they are when engaged in the hair, the more hair is caught therebetween and the larger the wave.
When the combs are swung to overlap each other, the springs 20 hold said combs in this position and prevent them falling from the hair. By observing Figure 1, it will be seen that the hair gathered up between the combs will form the wave. Although' I have shown only one set of combs in the drawing, it is obvious that a number will be used in setting the hair. When more than one set of combs are used, the rear edges of the combs of adjacent sets will lie contiguous to each other and it is these adjacent flat edges which form the flat or valley of the waves. The 1 ease with which the combs may be removed from U0 and engaged in the hair permits a Woman to set her own hair with little trouble. The springs 20 hold the combs rmly in place after they are positioned and the user can move about Without danger of their falling out of the hair and requiring re-setting.
The description which has been given recites more or less detail of a particular embodiment of the invention, which is set forth as new and useful; however, I desire it understood that the invention is not limited to such exact details of construction, because it is manifest that changes and modications may be made within the scope of the appended claims, without departing from the spirit of the invention.
What I claim and desire tosecure by Letters Patent, is:
1. Means for Waving hair comprising, a, pair of combs, posts mounted on the back of each comb, and means pivotally attached to the outer endv of each post for connecting the combs and perf mitting them to be swung together so as to overlap and lie substantially flat on the head of the wearer, said posts extending from thel sides of the combs so as to support the connecting means above the hair when the combs are swung toward each other and engaged in thehair.
2. Means for waving hair comprising, a pair of combs, posts mounted on the back of each comb, and resilient means pivotally attached to the outer end of each post for connecting the combs and permitting them to be swung together so as to overlap and lie substantially flat on the head of the wearer, said posts extending from the sides of the combs so as to support the connecting means above the hair when the combs are swung toward eachother and engaged in the hair.
3. Means for waving hair comprising, a pair of combs, posts mounted on the back of each comb,
Vand coiled springs pivotally attached at their ends to said posts for connecting the combs and permitting them to be swung together so as to overlap and lie substantially flat on the head of `the wearer, said posts extending from the sides of the combs so as to support the coiled springs above the hair when the combs are swung toward each other and engaged in the hair, also whereby the springs are supported out of contact with the hair whenV the combs are pulled apart and released to gather up the hair.
