  • BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION 1. Field of the Invention
  • The intended general field of the invention is the cosmetics industry. However, the invention may be applicable in any industry where practitioners need a large variety of small tools available at their disposal, especially where their hands are otherwise occupied. The invention is a modular apparatus based system which allows beauticians, make up artists, barbers, anyone else working in a similar capacity to have their desired tools close at hand and easily accessible while performing their work and out of reach of their desks and other typical locations for tool storage.
  • 2. Background
  • Applying make up on a customer, styling hair, and many other similar services require access to a relatively large number of small tools, each tool in multiple sizes. Traditional examples include various makeup paint palettes, sponges, combs, brushes, creams, and scissors.
  • Until now there have been no real solution to the issue. Practitioners keep tools on their table in various holders. But a table is not in immediate reach when working on a client and are thus inefficient. Pockets are easier but prevent the practitioner from keeping the tools organized. Various belts and bags exist but as with all of these solutions, the tools are either out of sight, requiring the practitioner to stop working to choose the next tool, or out of reach, requiring the same. This invention allows the practitioner to have a set of tools available for immediate uninterrupted use.
  • BRIEF SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • This invention solves the aforementioned problems by allowing the use to have customizable tool carrying system on their forearm and wrists. This tool carrying system generally consists of a neoprene forearm wrap with a stabilizing strap wrapped around the middle finger of the practitioner's hand. Various specially designed attachments for holding a custom selection of tools such as brushed, and makeup, are attachable using a hook and look type systems as needed by the practitioner.
  • BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE SEVERAL VIEWS OF THE DRAWING
  • FIG. 1 depicts the empty arm wrap as it would look on a practitioner's right hand.
  • FIG. 2 depicts the arm wrap and the stabilizing finger strap attachment rolled out flat.
  • FIG. 3 depicts and empty wrap with a stabilizing finger strap attachment hooked around the practitioner's middle finger.
  • FIG. 4 depicts the invention in use, loaded with a brush holding attachment.
  • FIG. 5 depicts the invention in use. A magnetic strip is attached via a hook and loop system. The magnetic strip loaded with additional metallic makeup holder attachments.
  • FIG. 6 depicts the invention in use, loaded with jars containing useful material. The jars are attached via a hook and loop system to the arm wrap.
  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION
  • The invention consists of a system for the attachment of tools to the hand of a practitioner in the beauty salon industry, such as a barber or a cosmetologist. Referring to FIG. 2. The wrap 101 is made from an elastic material. The entire outward face of the wrap covered with a hook and loop surface intended to be used to hold various attachments. The wrap may be secured around the user's arm in various way. The embodiment shown in FIG. 2 consists of a strip of complementary hook and loop covering on an inside portion of the wrap 104, to enable it to secure itself to the users' arm by attaching to the outside surface of the wrap. FIG. 1 demonstrates what the wrap would look like when it is worn by the practitioner.
  • The wrap may be secured by an additional stabilizer strap 102 shown in FIG. 2. The strap is worn by putting the middle finger through hole 103 and attaching the opposite end of the strap to the wrap 101 via a hook and loop attachment system. The wrap and strap and shown together in FIG. 3. The strap is made of the same elastic material as the wrap and the outside of it is also covered with the same side of the hook and loop system as the wrap 101 to allow for the holding of additional attachment.
  • FIG. 4 shows the wrap 101 in use without the stabilization strap 102. The wrap has an attachment 201, which is secured using a hook and loop system. This particular attachment is best suited for holding elongated tools such as brushes.
