HAIR BANDS Filed March '7, 1957 INVENTOR ATTORNEY United States Patent 2,868,214 HAIR BANDS Jack M. Levy, Brooklyn, N. Y.
Application March 7, 1957, Serial No. 644,500
1 Claim. (Cl. 13246) This invention relates to hair bands or bandeaux of the type intended to partially encircle the head of the wearer and to resiliently engage the same.
Such bands, as heretofore constructed, have been made with smooth inner surfaces and have therefore had a tendency to slip on the hair, thus making it difficult to keep them in place.
The object of the present invention is to devise a band of this type. provided with means for gripping the hair so that it will be easier to keep in place and slipping will be substantially prevented.
In order that the invention may be readily understood, reference is had to the accompanying drawing, forming part of this specification, and in which:
Fig. 1 is a side elevation of the complete band;
Fig. 2 is a vertical section on the line 22 of Fig. 1; and
Fig. 3 is a fragmentary perspective view on an enlarged scale, showing a cross section of the band.
Referring to the drawing in detail, my improved bandeau or hair band is designated in its entirety by the reference character 1. As shown in Fig. 1, it consists of an arcuate strip of material extending through substantially more than 180 and adapted to embrace the head of the wearer.
By reference to Figs. 2 and 3, it will be seen that the strip of material is substantially channel shaped in cross section, comprising a flat body or web with flanges at each side thereof. The strip is made of elastic material such as metal or plastic, and by reason of its channel shape it has a certain amount of stiffness while being 4 sufliciently resilent to conform with and grip the head.
ice
The side flanges are serrated or shaped to form a series of shallow teeth 2 with rounded points, as clearly shown in Figs. 1 and 3. Although the band may be described as substantially channel shaped in cross section, the flanges or teeth preferably do not extend at right angles to the web but are inclined outwardly at an obtuse angle thereto. This is preferred, as it reduces the likelihood of injury to the scalp by the teeth.
Referring again to Fig. 1, it will be seen. that the extremities of the band are bent outwardly so that they extend substantially parallel to each other, and the extreme ends 3 are made smooth and flat without any teeth around the edges. These fiat portions are adapted to press against the sides of the head of the wearer.
From the foregoing it will be understood that when the band is placed in position around the head the teeth 2 enter between the strands and grip the hair so as to minimize any tendency of the band to slip.
What I claim is:
A hair band consisting of an arcuate thin, flat strip of resilient material extending through substantially more than so that it conforms with the round shape of and embraces the head, said strip being of shallow channel cross-section comprising a web having inturned flanges at both side edges, said flanges being serrated to form series of stubby teeth substantially shorter than the width of said web and having relatively blunt ends, said teeth projecting at an obtuse angle to the transverse plane of the inside of said strip, each such series of stubby teeth extending throughout substantially the entire length of said strip whereby, when the band is applied to the head, not only do said teeth engage the hair and scalp around the top of the head, but the teeth adjacent the end portions of the band grip the sides of the head and tend to prevent the band from becoming displaced, and whereby, due to the shape and angular disposition of said teeth, likelihood of injury to the scalp is minimized.
