Description

- LADYSHAIRCOMB' Siegfried Behr, Flushing, and Max M. Hirtenstein, Jamaica, N.Y.
Application February 11, 1957, Serial No. 639,346
1 Claim. (Cl. 132-156) This invention relates to a ladys hair comb and more particularly to a comb having a flexible body adapted to assume various shapes so as to conform to the shape of the head of the user or to the shape of gathered strands of hair and adapted to hold the hair in anydesired style.
A principal object of the present invention is to provide a ladys comb which freely expands and contracts in the same plane and twists into various planes and which pliantly conforms to the curve of the head for holding the hair in any desired position.
Another object of the invention is to provide a ladys comb which is easily inserted into the hair and which is adapted to be securely held from displacement in the .hair.
A further object of the invention is to provide a comb f this kind with relatively small teeth so constructed that portions thereof will yield laterally to firmly grip and hold a strand of hair inserted between adjacent teeth.
A still further object is to provide a ladys comb having a back bar of round shape in cross-section to permit fiexing of the comb longitudinally and transversely so as to help in creating new hair styles.
A specific object of the invention is to provide a split circular shaped comb adapted to be sprung longitudinally and transversely.
It is also an object of the invention to provide a circular comb that is adapted to surround a large quantity of hair and to maintain the same in gathered condition, the comb being practically invisible from view.
For further comprehension of the invention and of the object and advantages thereof reference will be had to the accompanying drawing forming a part of the disclosure, wherein Fig. l is a plan view of a ladys comb embodying one form of the invention.
Fig. 2 is a similar view of a ladys comb embodying a modified form of the invention.
Fig. 3 is a cross-sectional view taken on the plane of the line 3-3 of Fig. 2 on an enlarged scale.
Referring particularly to Fig. 1 of the drawing showing the first form of the invention, the comb shown therein has a circular body split as indicated at 11. The circular body is molded of suitable plastic material and comprises a back bar 12 and comb teeth 13. The back bar 12 is circular and of relatively small dimension in cross-section as shown in Fig. 3.
The comb teeth 13 extend inwardly from the back bar 12 in the same plane and are designed and shaped so as to permit the comb to be embedded in the hair about a body of gathered hair in circular arrangement and practically hidden from view. The teeth are relatively small and spaced closely adjacent each other. Each tooth 13 has a body of elongated flattened loop formation terminating at one end as indicated at 15 in a curved end coming to a substantial point and being embedded in the back bar 12. The other end of the tooth is closed and continues into a closed smooth point 16. Between the closed ends of the tooth, the body of the tooth is formed with an elongated central opening 17 with relatively thin resilient side portions 18, 18. The opening extends to the back bar 12. The sides of the adjacent teeth are normally in substantial contact with each other at their centers and leaving a space 19 betweenadjacent teeth extending from the centers outwardly to the back bar 12. The resilient side portions yield to permit insertion of hair between the adjacent teeth and to grip and retain the hair thus inserted.
In use, the split ends of the body of the comb are grasped by the fingers of the user and sprung apart thereby extending and elongating the body of the comb in the same plane. The circular shape of the back bar 12 in cross-section permits this elongation of the comb in the same plane thereof. When the comb is thus elongated, the comb may be placed around a body of gathered hair, such as a chignon, at the back of the head, and the teeth of the comb inserted into the hair. When the comb is thus in position around and in the hair, spreading pressure on the comb is released whereupon the ends of the comb automatically spring back to normal position encircling the body of hair and firmly holding the hair in gathered condition. By reason of the space 19 extending to the back bar 12, the back bar seats on the hair and due to its size is scarcely visible.
In using the comb, the split ends of the body of the comb may also be similarly sprung apart to permit the comb body to assume a substantially semi-circular configuration to permit the teeth of the comb to be inserted over the head of the user with the teeth embedded in the hair. Furthermore, the resiliency and shape of the comb also permit the split ends of the body to be sprung apart and then given a twist transversely of the normal plane of the body and the twisted body inserted into the hair along a substantial arcuate path in any direction on the head.
The form of comb shown in Fig. 2 diflers from the form of Fig. 1 in that the body 10' is of arcuate shape instead of being circular. The teeth 13' are of the same shape and construction as the teeth 13 of Fig. 1 and extend from end to end of the body 10', no enlarged or finishing teeth being shown on the ends of the comb as in ordinary comb constructions whereby the body 10' has a flexibility such as to permit the comb to be extended longitudinally in the same plane, or twisted transversely into various planes.
' In all other respects, the comb shown in Fig. 2 is similar to the form of Fig. 1 and similar reference numerals are used to indicate similar parts.
While we have illustrated and described the preferred embodiments of the invention, it will be understood that changes in details of construction might be made without departing from the principle of the invention and we desire to be limited only by the state of the prior art and the appended claim.
We claim:
A ladys hair comb comprising a flexible body circular in configuration and split transversely, a back bar around said body, closely spaced teeth extending inwardly from the back bar and being disposed in the same plane, said teeth each having an elongated flattened looped body with a central closed opening extending substantially the length of the tooth, one end of the tooth being embedded in the back bar, the other end of the tooth having a closed smooth point, the sides of adjacent teeth being in substantial engagement and being yieldable to permit insertion of hair between the teeth and to grip and retain the hair thus inserted, adjacent teeth being spaced so as to leave a space between the contacting side portions thereof and the back bar whereby the teeth are adapted to be embedded in the hair the entire length of the teeth, said back bar being circular in cross-section and of small dimensionin cross-seetien afi d forming the outer-pe ziphery of the comb whereby the bed-y of the comb admd to Hadley et a1 Mar.
