I HAIR CURLING DEVICE Filed June 13, 1938 Patented Apr. 25, 1939 l UNITED STATES "siam PATENT OFFICE HAIR CURLING DEVICE California Application June 13, 1938, Serial No. 213,405
1 Claim.
This invention relates generally to hair curling devices, and more particularly to hair curling devices of the general type about which a curl is rolled and then withdrawn, a bob pin carried by the device being applied to the curl as the curling device is withdrawn.
A primary object of the invention is to provide a curling device adapted to carry the bob pin in a position free of the curl while the curl is being wound, and also adapted to carry the pin in such a position that it will become applied to the curl by the simple operation of withdrawing the curling device. A general object of the invention is to provide a device of extreme simplicity; and, as will later be seen, the position of the bob pin relative to the curl winding zone, and the manner in which the pin is carried in the device, are features of my device that enable it to be of the desired extreme simplicity.
o The various features andadditional objects of the invention will become fully apparent from the following detailed description of a present preferred embodiment thereof; reference for this purpose being had to the accompanying drawing,. in which:
Fig. 1 is a side elevation, partly in section, of a typical illustrative form of the invention;
Fig. 2 is a front end view of the device of Fig. 1;
Fig. 3 is a side elevation of a portion of the 0 device of Fig. 1, showing the application of a bob pin thereto;
Fig. 4 shows the device after a strand of hair has been introduced thereto;K v
Fig. 5 shows the device after a curl has been 35 formed thereon;
Fig. 6 shows the curl clamped by the bob pin after the curling device has been withdrawn;
and
Fig. 7 shows a modiiication.
o 'I'he drawing shows one typical hair curling device which is illustrative of the invention, and as shown therein, the device, generally denoted by numeral III, is formed at one end with a comb portion II, which serves as the handle of the 5 device while being used as a curler. Projecting V5 in order to insert the hair strand therein, see Fig.
4, and the resiliency of the device is Asuch that when the hair has thus been inserted in slot I4 and arm I2 released, the hair will become clamped between arms I2 and I3.
What may be described as the winding length" 5 or winding zone of the device (dimension w in Fig. 3) is determined by the length of arm I3, as will be readily evident. Army I2 projects beyond the tip of arm I3 by a distance substantially equal to or slightly greater than the length 10 of the bob pin to be used with the device.
To provide for the support of the bob pin 20 in the desired manner, the projecting or pin carrying portion of arm I2 is provided with a comparatively deep, concave bottom cavity or groove l5 2|, which is adapted to take one leg 20a of the pin. This groove 2I extends around the forward end of arm I2, as indicated at 22, and thence rearwardly a short distance in the upper face of part I2, in the manner clearly illustrated in Ill'ig. 20 1. The angle a which groove portions 2| and 22 make with one another is sufficiently great that the two legs of the bob pin will be spread somewhat as the pin is applied to the device and moved to the position shown in Fig. 3. The pin is thus held in an open position, its upper leg 2Gb extending at a substantial angle with reference to the upper surface I2a of curling arm I2 In using the device, hair pin, of the bob pin 80 type, may be first applied to the tip of arm I2, so that one leg will be held in bottom groove 2l and the other leg will follow the end groove portion 22, and the pin is then pushed to the position illustrated in Fig. 3. As is evident from Figure 2, the width of groove 2l is such that its side walls lie closely adjacent the edges of the leg 20a of the applied pin so that the said leg is confined against swinging transversely of the arm I2. Arm I2 is then bent upwardly-some- 40 what, so as to open slot I4', and the strand of hair S is then inserted therein (see Fig. 4). 'Ihe pressure on arm I2 is then released, whereupon the hair becomes clamped between arm I2 and clamp arm I3. 'I'he device is then turned to 45 form the curl C, as indicated in Fig. 5. When a suiilcientroll of the air is wound up, the'device is simply withdrawn from the curl, and by virtue of this operation the curl is slid into the bob pin, both the curl and pin are slid off the device, and the bob pin 20 becomes clamped to the curl and holds the same in position when the curling device has been removed. (see Fig. 6). The width of slot I4 is such that, even though it has the necessary clamping action on the hair, nevertheu lessthedevicemaybeeasilyremovediromthe curl by simply withdrawing it with one` hand while supporting the curl with the other. It is alsousuallydesirabletoplacetheiingeratthe end of the bob pin and assist the latter to go -fullyontothe curlasthebobpinengagthecurl yand the curler begins to separate from the pin. since the lower leg Ila of the bob pin is entirely within bottom groove 2l. the lower leg of the bob pin does not engage or come into contact with the hair until the device is from the pin. For this reason. the lower leg lla of the pin moves readily inside the curl without catching on or interfering therewith. The upper leg 2lb of the pin, on the other hand. is supportedinsuchapositionthat asthedeviceis withdrawn from the curl, the end of the curl finally engages with that leg of the pin. the pin then being restrained by the curl and remaining to clamp the curl. as in the manner illustrated in Fig. 6, as the curler is completely withdrawn.
l'lg. 'l shows a modiilcation, in which the curling arm ll and clamp arm 3i do not necessarily have resilient properties. The slot I2 between said arms is in this instance preferably substantially parallel sided, and so spaced that the hair strand may be easily but comparatively snugly received therein. The formed curl may be removed from the curler still more easily when the slot is thus made parallel sided.
It is a feature of the device that the bob pin carrying portion of the device is outside the length or zone of the device on which the curl is formed, so that the pin may be carried on the device while the curl is being formed; or so that the pin may be inserted in the device after the curl is formed, without requiring any care to see that the pin does not catch in the hair. Once the curl is formed, a quick pull of the device is then all that is required to clamp the curl with the pin. It is of course possible, if such should be desired, to place the pin on the device after the curl has been formed, or before the curl has been formed but after the device has been clamped on the strand of hair. The operation is most simply and conveniently performed, however, by placing the pin on the device before the device is applied to thehair, as it is much simpler to place the pin on the device at that time.. And itis one of the important features of the device that a simple construction is provided which permitsthepintobeplacedonthedevicebefore thedeviceisappliedtothehainthepinbeing supported in such a position thatit does notl interfere with the curl'while it is being formed.
It will be evident that the device is exceptionally simple in form, as well as convenient and simple to operaie.
One illustrative form of the invention has now been described in detail and illustrated in the drawing; it will be understood, however, that various changes may be made without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention or of the appended claim.
We claim:
A hair curling device formed as an integral body of resilient molded material and comprising an elongated curling arm having a handle portion at one end and a hair pin carrying portion at the other end, a hair clamping portion consisting exclusively of a simple and substantially straight arm shorter than the curling arm extending i'rom said handle portion along the portion of said curling arm which is adjacent the handle portion, said hair pin carrying portion being provided with a longitudinally extending groove adapted to receive substantially the whole length of one leg of a hair pin, the side walls of the groove beingso spaced apart as to lie closely adjacent the edges of said leg whereby to prevent swinging of the latter when the pin is applied to said carrying portion, said carrying portion being provided also with an end formation adapted to spread the two legs of the applied pin so that substantially the whole length of the other leg of the pin projects along said carrying portion with its free end spaced outwardly of the latter and longitudinaly spaced from the curl winding zone of said arm so as not to interfere during the curling operation while yet adapted to catch the curl as the arm is slipped
