HAIR HQLDING DEVICE WITH FACE LIFTING FUNCTION Filed Jan. 11, 1949 ullllllllllll E, Iltllfillllr Illllllllllll Marie Jm Whey Patented May 30, 1950 UNITED STATES PAT ENT OFFICE HAIR HOLDING DEVICE WITH FACE LIFTING FUNCTION '7 *Claims. 1
This invention relates to a comb barrette, or like device, adapted to be anchored in the hair, constructed to serve as tethering means for holding in tension wisps of hair, in the art of face lifting.
One of the objects of the invention is to provide a comb, barrette-or other device of th type described, so ccnstructedas to conceal its face lifting function and to give the appearance of a conventional comb.
Another object of the inventionis the provision of a comb or barrette as described, having cleats or their equivalent for tethering the wisps of hair, and a cover for said cleats functioning to prevent the untwining of the wisps from said cleats, to mask said cleats, and to provide an ornamental back for said comb or barrette.
Other objects of the invention will appear as the following description of a preferred and practical embodiment thereof proceeds.
In the drawing which accompanies the following specification, and throughout the figures of which the same-reference char-acters'have been employed to denote identical parts:
Figure 1 is a front view of a head, illustrating diagrammatically the facelifting'functionof the device of the present invention;
Figure 2 is a plan view of acomb embodying the principles of the invention, the cleat cover being in open position;
Figure 3 is a side elevation Figure 4 is a plan view of a barretteembodimerit of the invention;
Figure 5 is a side elevation of the barrette shown in Figure 4.
Before proceeding to a detailed description of the drawing, it may be stated that it has been proposed to smooth out wrinkles in the face and forehead by applying. small patches of adhesive plaster to the skin at appropriate points close to the hairline where they can be concealedby the hair dress, said patches having cords attached thereto which may be tensionedto stretch the skin of the forehead or cheeks in an upward direction, thus supporting released muscles and smoothing out the wrinkles and creases incident thereto. Such cords are attached to patches at opposite sides of the head so that there is a counterbalanced pull on both sides. This is far from being an optimum arrangement, for the correction in facial contour does not always call for a uniform tension of the skin on both sides.
Referring now to that form of the invention illustrated in Figures 2 and 3, the numeral I repre- Sents a comb Which is of conventional arcuate shape, as shownin Figure'2, and'including abase 2 with teeth 3 extending from one edge of the back. The teeth here shown are of'the sure rip type, being bellied laterally intermediate their points and opposite ends'so as to form narrow slits in an intermediate zone through which the hair must pass before enteringthewspaces 4 between the inner ends of the teeth. The comb can be movably anchored in the hair bythe us'e of teeth of this type, although the invention isnot to be construed as limited to any particular type of tooth.
Figure 3 shows that the'base of the comb consists of a thin lamination 5, whichimay be of any desired material, such asplastic, and a reinforcing lamination 6 beneath'the lamination 5,said laminationsbeing secured by suitablemeans, such as the rivets 1. Whether or not the base of the comb is laminated as shown, is unimportant to the invention. A plurality of cleats-or bobbins 8 are secured in longitudinal arrangement along the base of the comb.
Acover 9 is hinged at i It to one end of the base 2. vSaid cover has a curvature complementar to that of the'base 2 so that when the cover is in closed position, the cover and basecoincide in a common interface. Thecover is provided with an elongated hood I I, adapted to fit cleats 8. The width of the chamber of the hood is preferably such as to cause the hood to closely embracethe cleats 8. At its free end, the cover has the latch l2, which springs over theprojecting edge l3 of the base to latch the cover-in closed position. The parts are suificiently flexible to permit this springing action. In use, the comb is'thrust into the hair well back of the hairline adjacent that portionof the face contour which it is desired to correct. For example, assuming'that one wishesto smooth out'the wrinkles from the forehead,the combis'thrust into thehair at a distanceback of the forehead withthe'teeth pointing forwardly andburied in thehair until it is immovable when "tested. Then small wisps of hair are separated from the general body of hair just back of the hairline; the ends of each wisp are pulled so as to stretch the skin of the forehead to the desired degree, and while the wisp is under tension, the free portion thereof is wound tightly about a cleat 8. The number of wisps preferably corresponding to the number of cleats, although it is feasible to tether one or more wisps about the same cleat. After the wisps have been thus entwined about the cleats, the cover 9 is closed over the cleats and latched. The cover conceals th cleats and their fac lifting function 3 the hair-do being relied upon to conceal the presence of the individual tensioned wisps which emanate from the region of the hairline. The base 9 of the comb may be made ornamental so that the comb appears to be an ordinary comb and gives no suggestion that its function is other than that of an ornamental device or as an adjunct to holding the hair in place. The proximity of the sides of the hood to the cleats prevents the entwined wisps from becoming loosened and unwinding from the cleats. Figure 1 illustrates at a, b, c and d areas of the forehead which are uplifted by each of the respective wisps, four being shown in this figure. For lifting the jowls or smoothing out Wrinkles in the cheeks or in the region of the temples, similar combs may be, anchored in the sides of the hair and wisps of hair tethered thereto selected to control those regions which it is desired to uplift.
It is apparent from the above description that the combs do not have to be structurally correlated, but that each, being independently anchored, is capable of performing its function, irrespective of the presence of any other comb.
A barrette form of the invention is shown in Figures 4 and 5, in which of course the teeth are obviated. The barrette comprises the arcuate base bar it, to which the series of cleats or bob bins 3 are secured, and an underlying resilient clip It hinged at E5 to one end of the barrette, and being latchable in a keeper It, 50 as to clampably engage a mass of hair confined between the base and clip. By this means the barrette is anchored in the hair in conventional manner. A cover 9 is hinged at if! to one end of the base l3, and having a latch l2 which engages the free end edge of the base H3. The cover, as shown, is similar to that disclosed in Figure 3. The use of this barrette is obvious from the description of the functioning of the comb embodiment of the invention.
While I have in the above description disclosed what I believe to be practical embodiments of the invention, it will be understood by those skilled in the art that the specific details of construction and arrangement of parts is by way of example and not to be construed as limiting the scope of the invention.
What I claim as my invention is:
1. Hair holding device with face lifting function, including a base, means for anchoring said base in the hair, a cleat on said base about which the free end of a tensioned wisp of hair may be secured by winding, and a hood for said cleat concealing the same, in close relation to said cleat to prevent the unwinding of the wisp of hair therefrom.
2.

7. Hair holding barrette with face lifting function, including a base portion, a clip at one side of said base portion hinged at one end thereof for clamping said barrette to the hair, a linear series of cleats on the side of said back portion opposite said clip for securing the free ends of tensioned wisps of hair by winding, and a cover for concealing said cleats hinged to said back portion adjacent one end of said series of cleats, and fitting close to said cleats to'prevent unwinding of the wisps of hair therefrom.
