Description

Nov. 20, 1951 A. c. GLICK METHOD OF CURLING HAIR Filed Aug. 12, 1947 Patented Nov. 20, 1951 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE 1 Claim.
This invention relates to hairdressing apparatus, and more particularly to a cap or pattern which permits an individual to curl her own hair.
I have found that it is extremely difiicult to apply suitable curls or waves to ones own hair without the aid of a professional hairdresser due to the fact that it is often impossible to locate the curls with sufiicient regularity and proper spacing to obtain a pleasing, finished result.
An object, therefore, of my invention is to provide a pattern in the shape of a cap by means of which a woman may properly locate and apply hair curlers to her own hair.
A further object of the invention is to provide a cap of flexible material having a series of regularly spaced apertures through which the wearers hair may be drawn in a predetermined amount suitable for the application of hair curlers.
The invention also includes methods of curling hair and of applying hair curlers.
Further objects will be apparent from the specification and drawing, in which:
Fig. 1 is a perspective View illustrating the application and use of a hair curling pattern constructed in accordance with the invention.
Fig. 2 is a side elevation of the cap.
Fig. 3 is a rear elevation of the structure of Fig. 2; and
Fig. 4 is a modified form of hair curling pattern.
The invention comprises, essentially, the provision of a resilient cap having regularly spaced perforations through which a quantity of hair may be drawn by the wearer of the cap so that conventional hair curlers may be applied in such a way to provide corresponding regularly spaced curls on the wearers head. In addition, the provision of a multi-perforation cap permits a variation in the finished effect because the actual number and location of perforations employed may be varied from time to time as the wearer chooses. Furthermore, after the curlers are applied the cap may be left in place until the curls are ready for removal or the curlers, with the hair attached, may be slipped through the perforations and the cap removed.
Referring now more particularly to the drawings, a hair curling cap, indicated generally at 5, has a side portion 6 which is joined to a central longitudinal portion 1 at seam 8. A similar side portion 9 is joined to portion I by means of scam Ill. Portions 6 and 9, adapted to extend over the wearers ears, are provided with a chin strap II and fastener I 2 in order to securely retain the cap in position while being used. Both side portions 6 and 9 as well as top portion 1 are provided with horizontal, regularly spaced, parallel and rectangular perforations I3 which I have found may be 2% inches long and A, inch wide to give excellent results with conventional hair curlers now on the market.
In operation, the cap is placed over the head and a portion of hair M is drawn through one of the perforations It by means of any suitable instrument such as the pointed end 15 of comb Hi. When the proper amount of hair has been thus drawn through one of the perforations, a hair curler I! is applied to the hair in the customary manner. If desired, alternate perforations may be used, as shown in Fig. 1, or a different effect may be achieved by applying a hair curler at every perforation. Each curler with the hair wrapped around it may then be inserted through the perforation, as shown at l8, and the entire cap removed.
The entire pattern or cap may be made of rubber or a synthetic plastic material and molded in one piece. Furthermore, the number, shape and location of the perforations to a cap would depend upon the result which may be desired. For example, all or some of them may be arranged horizontally, vertically, or biased.
The embodiment illustrated in Figs. l-3 shows perforations of equal size. However, shorter slits such as i9 (Fig. 4) may be incorporated in the pattern, but in the event shorter slits l 9 are employed it may become impractical to remove the cap before the hair curlers are disengaged from the hair, since the length of the perforations may be inadequate to permit insertion of the curlers therethrough. In this event the curlers may be removed before the pattern is removed from the head so that the curls of hair are then drawn through the slits without the curlers applied.
With the use of my pattern, a woman is en abled to wave her hair as well as to curl it without the aid of expensive hairdressing equipment or the necessity of going to a hairdresser.
I claim:
The method of curling hair which comprises placing a pattern over the head, drawing out a portion of hair through a perforation in said pattern, applying a hair curler to the withdrawn portion of hair, and disengaging the pattern from the head by re-inserting the curler and curled hair through the perforations in the pattern.
