HAIR CURLER Filed Oct. 26, 1937 l V INVENTOR Ezgwmz J7. .u fitecz j W BY ATTORNEYS WITNESsES Patented Aug. 22, 1939 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE Claim.
This invention relates to hair curlers, and has for an object to provide an improved construction whereby a bobby pin is inserted in proper position ready for receiving a coil of hair when 5 the winding action of the curler has been completed.
Another object is to provide a hair curler having ample space for receiving a large or small quantity of hair to be coiled and, at the same time, hold in proper place a bobby pin adapted to straddle the coiled hair as the curler is removed.
A further object more specifically is to provide a hair curler in which the body is provided with an inclined tubular extension at one end for receiving part of the bobby pin.
An additional object is to provide a hair curler in which the bobby-pin-holding structure is formed so that the bobby pin may be rotated in order to be properly positioned to cause one leg of the pin to go within a coil of hair and the other extend on the outside surface thereof.
In the accompanying drawing- Figure 1 is a side view of the curler together with a bobby pin disclosing an embodiment of the invention, a small portion of hair being shown in connection therewith;
Fig. 2 is a top plan view of the hair curler and bobby pin shown in Fig. 1;
Fig. 3 is an enlarged sectional view through Fig. 2, approximately on the line 3-3;
Fig. 4 is a transverse sectional view through Fig. 3 on the line 4-4;
Fig. 5 is a side view of a modified form of the invention to that shown in Fig. l;
Fig. 6 is a view similar to Fig. 3 but showing a section through the modified structure of Fig. 5;
Fig. '7 is a transverse sectional view through Fig. 6 on the line 'l'l.
Referring to the accompanying drawing by numerals, i indicates the curler as a whole and 2 the bobby pin positioned to readily receive the hair 3 when the same has been properly coiled around the curler. The curler I is pro- 45 vided with a body 4 which may be of various shapes in cross section but preferably is sub stantially U-shaped, as shown in Fig. 4, whereby it is strong and yet light in weight. This body may be made from metal, Bakelite", rubber, or other material as may be desired.
At one end the body 4 is formed into a tubular portion or extension 5, which is at an angle to the center of the body 4 as illustrated particularly in Fig. 3. The tubular member or extension 5 provides means for receiving the straight leg 6 of the bobby pin 2, while the wavy leg I extends on the exterior. When the bobby pin 2 is positioned as shown in Fig. 3, the straight leg 6 is bowed by reason of its contact with the tubular portion 5 and the bottom of body 4. This pro- 5 vides an appreciable tension or friction whereby the bobby pin is properly held in place ready to slide or telescope over the coiled hair.
A resilient clamping plate or arm 8 normally rests on top of the body 4. This plate is, riveted 10 or otherwise rigidly secured at 9 to the body 4 and acts as a clamp for receiving the outer end of the hair to be coiled.
When the curler is to be used, preferably a small quantity of hair is combed out and the outer end passed between the clamping plate 8 and the body 4. To accomplish this result, the clamping plate 8, which is resilient, may be sprung outwardly and then allowed to assume the position shown in Fig. 1. The entire curler is then rotated so as to wind the hair around both the body 4 and the plate 8. After the winding operation has brought the curler against the head or as near the head as desired with the leg 1 next to the scalp or to the back of the next strand of hair, the curler is pulled out at the same time the coiled hair is pushed or eased off the body 4 into the bobby pin. When this takes place, the straight leg 6 moves automatically into the bore of the coiled hair and the leg 1 moves over the outer part. The coiled hair may then be held by one hand as the other hand pulls the curler out of the hair. The hand holding the hair may also at this time adjust the bobby pin so that it will properly fit into the 5 coiled hair. After the curler has been removed the bobby pin is left in place, and then the same operation is performed for another supply of hair. This is repeated as often as desired.
As shown in Fig. 4, the resilient clamping plate or arm 8 is slightly wider than the body 4 but, if desired, it could be made of the same length.
In Figs. 5 to 7 inclusive, a modified construction is disclosed wherein the body 4 is preferably round and preferably made from rubber, Bakelite, or other plastic material, or, if desired, it could be made from metal or even wood. The clamping plate 8' is applied to the body 4 and held in place by rivets 9. The body 4' is tubular as shown in Figs. 6 and 7 but at the right hand,
as shown in the drawing, is formed with an angular end structure In whereby when the straight leg 6 of the bobby pin 2 is inserted the leg I will rest against the inclined surface of the end In and be deflected outwardly so as to readily pass or partly rotate around body 4' over the coiled hair on the curler. This form of the invention is particularly desirable for hair loosely. Also this arrangement permits the operator to readily manipulate the hobby pin so that it may be moved over the coiled hair at any desired point.
Itwillbeunderstood thatthecoiledhairis normally held by the bobby Din which is left in end.
place regardless of which form of the invention is used In both forms of the invention the curler will readily take up stray or short hairs as the coil is being made and the curler moves toward the head by reason of the forefingers of both hands being free to catch and gather the shorter or stray hairs of the strand.
