Description

July 10, 1951 v. DOLPHIN TWISTED BOW HAIR RIBBON Filed Sept. 50, 1948 Patented July 10, 1951 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE TWISTED BOW HAIR RIBBON Inez. Vendela Dolphin, Chicago, Ill.
Application September 30, 1948, Serial No. 52,090
3 Qlaims.
The present invention relates to hair ribbons and. especially to a novel hair ribbon and to a novel means and manner of retaining the. hair in position.
Among the objects of the present invention is the provision of a novel hair ribbon that is quickly twisted about and retains the hair in position.
In the usual method of retaining braids, curls, tresses or looks of hair in position, a hair ribbon is tied thereabout. However, it isfound difiicult to maintain the hair ribbon in place for any considerable period, and it. is, also found. difficult to keep the bow taut about the hair. In. an endeavor to maintain the hair ribbon in place, it has been proposed to tightly twist or wrap a rubber band about the hair. This twisting or wrapping of the rubber band tightly about the hair is inconvenient, difficult and generally painful to the; child but even so, it is difficult to tie a bow sufficiently tight 7 to maintain the ribbon taut when tied about the hair.
These objections are completely eliminated by the, present invention which provides means for maintaining the hair inv position and a hair ribbon which unlike prior hair ribbons is not tied about the hair but is wound and maintained tightly twisted about the hair by a strip or length of deformable metal.
The present invention further comprehends a novel means and manner of maintaining the hair in the form of braids, curls, tresses or locks, and which obviates the difficulties resulting from the use .of an ordinary rubber band that is applied over the ends of the hair and wound or twisted about same. Such difiiculties are primarily due to the fact that in applying the band it must be wrapped several times about the hair to make it sufiiciently tight to maintain the hair in place and this necessitates that the rubber band be applied over the ends of the hair. This consequently results in pulling of the hair and the operation is generally painful to the recipient and to prevent such objections, applicant has provided a novel and simple means and manner of holding the hair in position.
Further objects are to provide a construction of maximum simplicity, efiiciency, economy and ease of assembly and operation, and such further objects, advantages and capabilities as will later more fully appear and are inherently possessed thereby.
The invention further resides in the construction, combination and arrangement of parts illustrated in the accompanying drawing, and while there is shown therein a preferred embodiment,
it is to be understood that the same is susceptible of modification and change and comprehends other details, arrangements of parts, features and constructions without departing from the spirit of the invention.
In the drawing- Figure 1 is a perspective view of the novel hair ribbon applied to the braided hair of a girl.
Fig. 2 is a View in perspective of the novel means and manner of retaining the braids in position.
Fig. 3 is a perspective view of the hair retaining means prior to its application to the braids, curls or locks of hair. 7
Fig. 4 is a top plan View of the novel hair ribbon prior to its being applied to the hair.
Fig. 5 is a view in vertical cross section taken in a plane represented by the line 5--5 of Fig. 4.
Fig. 6 is an enlarged plan view showing the novel hair ribbon applied to and twisted about the braided hair.
Fig. '7 is a diagrammatic view showing the novel hair ribbon twisted about a lock or curl of hair and particularly showing the manner in which the length of deformable metal wire retains the hair ribbon in its twisted position after it has been applied to the hair.
Referring more particularly to the illustrative embodiment shown in the drawing, the novel hair ribbon I to be applied to the hair 2 which may be braided, curled or collected as a lock, comprises a length of ribbon or fabric longitudinally and centrally overlapped at 3 and in the overlap there is provided a length of deformable metal wire or the like 4. To give sufiicient body to the hair ribbon, it is preferably composed of a base or lower strip 5 and an upper strip 6 which may be of double thickness, and the entire ribbon or either strip thereof, may be of plain fabric or fabric having any desired design whereby to simulate a bow when the ribbon is applied to the hair. The wire is preferably encased or enclosed within a rubber or plastic coating or protective covering.
As shown more clearly in Figs. 4 and 5, the wire preferably extends for approximately the length of the upper fabric strip 6 and is sewed at 1 into the overlapping portion and extending longitudinally and substantially centrally of the ribbon I.
To retain the braids, curls or looks of hair and to facilitate the application of the present hair ribbon thereto, Figs. 2 and 3 disclose a novel means and manner of applying a rubber band about the braided hair but without the inherent band 8 to which is applied a hook 9 having one end l0 anchored to an end of the band and the other end ll adapted to receive and anchor the other end of the band after the latter has been placed or drawn about the braided hair 2. This provides a highly simplified method of holding the hair braided, and helps in retaining the twisted ribbon securely upon the hair. 1
In the application of the novel hair ribbon,
the rubber band with its hook or connecting means as shown in Fig. 3, is applied to the collected hair as in Fig. 2 and at the location where the hair ribbon is intended to be applied. This retains the hair in place so that it is a simple matter to apply the novel hair ribbon over the rubber band and its hook by merely twisting the ribbon about the hair in the manner shown in Figs. 6 and '7. Due to the pliability of the metal strip or wire 4, the hair ribbon will remain taut and in position, and due to the novel arrangement of the hair retaining means including the hook on the rubber band, any tendency of the ribbon to shift its position along the hair will be substantially prevented.
Application of the hair ribbon thus becomes a simple matter and its removal is equally simple. As the wire or metal insert is readily deformable or susceptible of being shaped to the object about which it is wound or twisted, the hairjwhether in the form of braids, curls, tresses or looks, is retained in position and the hair ribbon may be reused over and over again without damage to the deformable metal insert and without deterioration of its appearance.
Having thus disclosed the invention, I claim:
1. A hair ribbon adapted to be twisted about the hair to simulate a bow, comprising a ribbon formed of two strips of fabric one of which is of substantially less length than and spaced inwardly from the ends of the other whereby the ribbon is of but one thickness at its opposite ends, a longitudinal fold extending substantially centrally of the ribbon, and a deformable metal insert anchored in the overlap and which when twisted about the hair retains the ribbon in the form of a bow.
2. A hair ribbon adapted to be twisted about the hair to simulate a bow, comprising a strip of relatively wide fabric forming a hair ribbon and provided with an overlap extending longitudinally and substantially centrally of the ribbon, and a pliable and readily deformable metal insert enclosed within the overlap and with its ends spaced inwardly of the ends of the ribbon whereby the ribbon when twisted about the hair is retained by the deformation of the enclosed pliable metal.
3. A hair ribbon adapted to be twisted about the hair to simulate a bow, comprising a ribbon composed of multiple thicknesses of fabric and a pliable and readily deformable length of metal wire enclosed within the ribbon between the thicknesses of fabric and extendinglongitudinally and substantially centrally of the ribbon with the ends of the wire spaced inwardly of the ends of the ribbon, and means for anchoring the metal wire within the ribbon whereby the ribbon when twisted about the hair is retained by the deformation of the enclosed pliable metal wire.
