    SUMMARY
  • The present invention provides various embodiments of hairbands. Anyone who is familiar with hair accessories will know that there have been very few innovations in the field of bandeau bands and hairbands. The current invention seeks to change that by disclosing improvements that are significant while also being easy to manufacture as well as easy to use. The collapsible band, for example, provides a significant improvement on existing wide bands by borrowing the concept of the mobius from mathematics. The incorporation of one or more twists prevent bunching of the band under hair at the nape. This makes the band very comfortable to wear while also making it more attractive by preventing funneling that happens with currently available bands. The customizable band of this invention can be customized by the addition of ribbons, scarves, beaded strings, ties, etc to the headband. The multi-loop band not only simulates the look of multiple bands without having the user try and adjust multiple bands but it also provides better hair-holding ability by allowing for the placement of the band at more than one region. The new hairband is an improvement over existing scrunchies because it allows the placement of embroidery or other embellishments on the flat front while also presenting a sleek look as opposed to the sloppy, scrunched look of a scrunchie. All of the above mentioned embodiments present significant improvements over existing hairbands.
  • Other embodiments are also shown in the drawings.
  • The design of the current invention presents several advantages.
  • The simple designs of the various embodiments allow for easy manufacturing and also translate to reasonable costs for the consumer.
  • The simple designs of the various embodiments make them easy to use and easy to explain to the user by means of a simple illustration.
  • Additionally, the embodiments of this invention provide options for a stylish new hair accessory. This is particularly important in a market that is constantly hungry for new trends.
  • DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION
  • Various aspects of the present invention will evolve from the following detailed description of the currently preferred embodiment thereof which should be taken in conjunction with the prior described drawings.
  • FIG. 1 shows the preferred embodiment of the customizable headband 2 of this invention. Incisions 4 can be seen at the rear of the band. There are four such incisions though the number of incisions can be as few as one and as many as can be included on the headband.
  • FIG. 2 shows the rear view of the customizable headband of this invention. Incisions 4 can be seen on the band with one pair of incisions placed on the right of the centerline and one pair on the left.
  • FIG. 3 shows how a scarf 6 can be easily added to headband 2. Each of the two ends of a long scarf has been woven through a pair of incisions 4. This enables a wearer to quickly wear a scarf securely on her head without worrying about it slipping off.
  • FIG. 4 shows headband 8 which is a second embodiment of the customizable headband of this invention. Headband 8 has four loops instead of incisions. Ribbon 12 has been woven through loops 10 of the headband in FIG. 4. The free ends of ribbon 12 may be left to dangle or they may be tied together. Alternatively the ends of ribbon 12 can be reinserted through loops 10 to secure them. Ends 12 may also be tucked into the band.
  • FIG. 5 shows a third embodiment 14 of the customizable headband of this invention. This embodiment has a single loop 16 through which both the ends of ribbon 18 have been woven.
  • FIG. 6 shows a fourth embodiment 20 of the customizable headband of this invention. This embodiment has circular openings 22 through which a scarf or ribbon can be woven.
  • FIG. 7 shows a fifth embodiment of headband 24 of this invention. Headband 24 has a single incision 26 through which scarf 28 has been woven.
  • FIG. 8 shows the customizable headband of this invention with a scarf woven through incisions 4. Bow 30 has been made in the scarf. The bow may be positioned so it is near the temples or near the top of the forehead or behind the ears. The headband may be worn with the incisions or loops at the back or in front or at the sides of the head.
  • FIG. 10 shows the preferred embodiment 32 of the collapsible headband of the current invention. Twist 36 helps reduce bulk under the wearer's hair. It also helps maintain the headband in a scrunched-up condition thus preventing hair at the nape from being pushed upwards. Underside 34 can be seen behind twisted section 36.
  • FIG. 9 shows a second embodiment 33 of the collapsible headband of the current invention. The loop 35 can be slid along the circumference to help scrunch the band. Loop 35 can be made of any material such as fabric, plastic, metal, wood, etc. It can also be made removable.
  • FIG. 11 shows collapsible headband 32 of this invention worn as a headwrap by wearer 38. In this figure, the headband is seen in a collapsed or scrunched condition.
  • FIG. 12 shows collapsible headband 32 of this invention worn as a bandana by wearer 38.
  • FIG. 13 shows third embodiment 40 of the collapsible headband of this invention. Elastic bands 42 flank two circular edges of the cylinder of fabric.
  • FIG. 14 shows third embodiment 40 of the collapsible headband of this invention with one of the two bands 42 near the wearer's hairline.
  • FIG. 15 shows third embodiment 40 of the collapsible headband of this invention twisted into knot 44.
  • FIG. 16 shows fourth embodiment 46 of the collapsible headband of this invention on a wearer. One circular edge of the headband is provided with a drawstring tie 48. FIG. 17 shows the fourth embodiment 46 on a wearer. Drawstring ties 48 allows the wearer to form a ponytail with the help of drawstring ties 48.
  • FIG. 18 shows fifth embodiment 50 of the collapsible headband of this invention on a wearer. This embodiment is made in the manner of “do rags”, a popular hair accessory with both men and women in the African American community. Ties 52 help provide the look of a “do rag”. FIG. 19 shows fifth embodiment 50 with ties 52.
  • FIG. 20 shows sixth embodiment 54 of the collapsible headband of this invention. A portion of the band is scrunched in order to reduce bulk under the hair of the wearer. FIG. 20 shows elasticized portion 55. Instead of elasticizing only a portion of the long edges of the band, the scrunched portion can extend from one circular edge to the other. This is shown in FIG. 21 in the seventh embodiment of the collapsible headband of this invention. Elasticized portion 57 forms a straight line extending substantially from one circular edge to the other.
  • FIG. 22 shows eighth embodiment 58 of the collapsible headband of this invention. Drawstring 60 is provided along a straight line extending substantially from a one circular edge to the other. Drawstring 60 can be used to achieve the look of the embodiment 56.
  • FIG. 23 shows how headband 62, similar to the basic embodiment, of FIG. 13, can be twisted at its midsection. And then folded so as to form a cap 64 as shown in FIG. 24.
  • FIG. 25 shows collapsible headband 65 worn around the neck in the manner of a turtleneck.
  • FIG. 26 shows the collapsible headband of this invention worn in the manner of a square scarf where portion 67 goes around the head of the wearer while portion 68 is worn around the neck. The headband for this embodiment needs be longer than one intended to be just worn over the head.
  • FIG. 27 shows the collapsible headband of this invention worn in the manner of a long muffler or scarf with portion 66 hugging the neck and portion 69 loosely wound around the neck. The headband for this embodiment needs be longer than one intended to be just worn over the head.
  • FIG. 28 shows a perspective view of a first embodiment of the multi-loop headband of this invention. Headband 72 is substantially cylindrical in shape. The circumference of headband 72 is such that it can loop at least twice around the head of the user. Headband 72 is ideally made of a stretchable material as least in part. This will allow for easy placement of the headband as well as allow for one size to fit all (or most) wearers. The width of the headband can be as narrow as a few millimeters or as wide as a few inches.
  • FIG. 29 shows a perspective view of a second embodiment of the multi-loop headband of this invention. The circle of the headband carries twist 76. This twist can be included in the headband to help the headband 74 lie flat on the head of the wearer once it has been looped twice around the head of the wearer. More than one twist may be incorporated. The headband of this invention can be similarly made in the shape of a mobius strip. A rectangular strip of material is twisted once before joining the two short sides. Thus the inner surface smoothly transitions to an outside surface and then back again.
  • FIG. 30 shows third embodiment 78 of the multi-loop headband of this invention. In this embodiment the headband carries belt buckles 80 and 82 which can be closed easily to form the circle of a headband. The length of the headband also carries an adjusting mechanism. This design of the headband will allow it to double as a belt.
  • FIG. 31 shows fourth embodiment 88 of the multi-loop headband of this invention. In this embodiment, the preferred embodiment, the headband is made in a figure-8 configuration. The two loops of the figure-8 can be created by incorporating an opening 90 along the length of the band. One free end of the band is then threaded through opening 90. The two free ends of the headband are then joined thus creating loop 92.
  • FIG. 32 shows the multi-loop headband of this invention as worn by a user 83. The headband is wrapped around the head of the wearer such that it forms a front loop 84 for holding hair near the hairline and a loop 86 that sits slightly behind the first loop. The headband may be used as an ear-warmer in which case one or more loops of the headband may be placed over the wearer's ears.
  • FIGS. 33 and 34 show two different views of the first embodiment of the ponytailer hairband of this invention. This is the preferred embodiment. Hairband 93 has a scrunchy-like portion that is essentially a fabric-covered elastic. Instead of fabric, other equivalent materials may be used. If fabric is used it may be woven, knit, mesh, crocheted, or in the form of ribbons or any other configuration that is used for such ponytailers. Hairband 93 also has an unscrunched portion 94. When hairband 93 is worn around a ponytail, portion 94 can be placed last over the ponytail so that it is the most visible part of hairband 93. It helps give the ponytail a sleek look as opposed to a scrunched look. Hairband 93 can be made in many ways. A circle of elastic may be enclosed inside an annular fabric and then attached at two points to the fabric such that it doesn't stretch between those two points forming portion 94 of the hairband. Alternatively instead of using a complete circle of elastic, the length of elastic can be made to extend only through the scrunched portion of hairband 93 with portion 94 of the hairband being devoid of elastic. The two ends of the elastic used in the scrunched portion can be attached to the material of the retaining tube at the two ends of portion 94. A stiff piece of material may be attached to or enclosed within region 94 to help maintain a flat, sleek look.
  • FIG. 35 shows a second embodiment of the ponytailer hairband of this invention. Hairband 97 is the scrunched portion of the hairband. Region 98 is formed by placing an unscrunched, sleeve of material over a portion of hairband 97. The length of region 98 should be such that it just barely goes around a ponytail. This will ascertain that region 98 can help achieve the look of a sleek scrunchy if it is positioned last after hairband 97 has been tightened around a bundle of hair.
  • FIG. 36 shows a third embodiment of the ponytailer hairband of this invention. In this embodiment an elastic circle 95 is almost entirely covered by a sleeve 96. Sleeve 96 may be stiffened by using an interfacing or a piece of leather or felt or any such equivalent materials. Plastic may also be used as a stiffening material. However, to maintain the comfort of a scrunchy hairband, it is preferable that the stiffening material be a softer one as opposed to hard plastic or wood or metal. While these materials may be used, the preferred embodiment would be to use a softer, more comfortable material.
  • FIG. 37 shows a fourth embodiment of the ponytailer hairband of this invention. Elastic circle 91 has been woven in and out of the fabric cover such that portions 89 are enclosed within the tube of hairband 99. The regions that have the exposed length of elastic can help achieve an unscrunched look. Using a stiffening material will further help achieve the unscrunched look when the hairband is properly positioned and adjusted over the ponytail of the wearer.
  • FIG. 38 shows a fifth embodiment of the ponytailer hairband of this invention. Hairband 100 can be seen to have a sleek portion 102 that can be a stiff piece of material that is attached to a scrunched portion of hairband 100.
  • While certain novel features of this invention have been shown and described, it is not intended to be limited to the details above, since it will be understood that various omissions, modifications, substitutions and changes in the forms and details of the device illustrated and its operations can be made by those skilled in the art without departing in any way from the spirit of the present invention.
  • CONCLUSION, RAMIFICATIONS, AND SCOPE OF INVENTION
  • Thus the reader will see that the headband of the current invention provides a fun, easy to use, and stylish hair accessory that is an improvement on existing hairbands.
  • It is to be realized that the optimum dimensional relationships for the parts of the invention, to include variations in size, materials, function, and manner of operation, assembly and use, are deemed readily apparent and obvious to one skilled in the art, and all equivalent relationships to those illustrated in the drawings and described in the specification are intended to be encompassed by the present invention. While this description is directed to a particular embodiment, it is understood that those skilled in the art may conceive modifications and/or variations to the specific embodiments shown and described herein. Any such modifications or variations which fall within the purview of this description are intended to be included as well. For instance, the shape of the incisions may be varied so that they look like stars or are square or amoeboid in shape. Also, the incisions do not have to be grouped together. Rather they may be placed far apart from each other. The specific positioning of the incisions may be varied without taking away from the spirit of the invention. Thus, even though the description above contains many specifics, these should not be construed as limitations on the scope of the invention, but rather as examples of preferred embodiments thereof.
