Description

Aug. 7, 1962 R. c. LEVITE 3,047,898

MULTI-USE HAIRBRUSH Filed June 12, 1961 INVENTOR ROBERT C. LEVITE ATTORNEY ans United States Patent 3,047,898 MULTl-USE HAERBRUSH Robert C. Levite, Ashby Road, Ashburnham, Mass. Filed June 12, 1961, Ser. No. 116,518 2 Claims. (Cl. 15-159) This invention relates to a new and improved multiuse hairbrush particularly adapted to the use of the hairdressing profession and having for its principal characteristic several longitudinal lines of bristles of different lengths and characters, one longitudinal row of bristles at one edge of the brush head for instance being of relatively stiff coarse nylon providing a combing action, and the row of bristles at the opposite edge of the brush head being of a fine flexible smoothing type as for instance fine na tural bristle; and there being located between these longitudinal lines shorter rows of nylon bristle adjacent the nylon line of bristles, and boar bristles, i.e., natural bristles of stiff coarse character, adjacent the fine natural bristle.

In the hairdressing profession it is necessary to use several different brushes, at least two and sometimes three, for performing a hairdressing operation. A brush with stiff bristles is used for instance to displace pincurls and the like to form waves and the fine natural bristle brush is used for a smoothing operation whereby to achieve a smooth brushed effect which is not possible while using coarse bristles, and it is thepurpose of the present invention to provide a single brush head which can be used from one side or the other selectively, depending upon the operation to be performed, i.e., whether fine flexible smoothing bristles are to be utilized, or whether the coarse combing type bristles are to be utilized, and particularly which one is to be utilized first, as it is possible to use initially the coarse stiff combing bristles and then to finish up the same stroke with the fine brushing bristles at the other edge of the brush.

Other objects and advantages of the invention will appear hereinafter.

Reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings, in which FIG. 1 is an end view illustrating a new brush;

FIG. 2 is a top plan view thereof, and

FIG. 3 is a view in side elevation.

In carrying out the present invention, attention is directed particularly to FIG. 1 in which the reference numeral indicates the brush head. The bristles appear at one surface thereof as shown and may be inserted in any way desired. The rows of bristles may be as long as desired throughout the brush head without departing from the scope of the invention.

The important characteristic of the invention, however, resides in the fact that there are two rows of outside bristles at one edge of the brush head andthese are indicated at '12 and 14. These rows are of relatively stiif coarse nylon and are relatively extensive as compared with the adjacent rows which are indicated at 16 and 1%. Rows 16 and '18 are spaced substantially the same as row 14 from row 12 and they are of the same material, relatively coarse and stiif nylon, but they are shorter. These rows back up the action of the nylon bristles when the pressure is in the direction of the arrow indicated by the reference numeral 20.

In other words, when the operator uses the brush so that the rows 12 and 14 enter the hair first, a relatively stiff coarse combing action is achieved and depending upon the pressure with which the operator wields the brush, the bristles 12 and 1-4 will of course bend but the shorter and therefore stilfer bristles 16 and 18 will back up this action and prevent excess flexure of the bristles at 12 and 14.

"ice

The opposite edge of the brush is provided with bristles of somewhat similar length to those at 12 and 14, these bristles being indicated at 22 and being made of fine natural bristles so that they are soft and have a brushing, not a combing effect, when this side of the brush is used to initiate the stroke, and it is pointed out that this side of the brush can be used with or without the use of the nylon bristles, depending upon how the operator holds and manipulates the brush.

The next row of bristles to those at 22 are also natural bristles but I prefer to use coarse boar bristles, these being indicated at 24, and this row of bristles also has all of the advantages of natural bristle for better treatment of the hair as compared to the nylon bristles. At the same time, however, the coarse boar bristles back up the fine natural bristles of row 22 in the manner explained above with-reference to the short bristles 16 and 18 and the nylon outside row of bristles 12 and 14.

I also prefer to have two further rows of bristles at 26 and 28, these being of a length comparable to those at 16 and 18 and being also natural boar bristles for the achievement of the benefits to the hair which are provided by natural bristle and at the same time these shorter boar bristles back up the fine natural bristles and the coarse boar bristles of rows 22 and 24 respectively.

Referring now to FIGS. 2 and 3, it will be seen that i the new brush provides an improved handle which is generally flat and has finger indentations thereon, the handle itself being indicated at 36 and the indentations being shown at 32 and at 34. It will be appreciated that by having the indentations at both edges of the handle (see FIG. 2), the brush may be used by either a right-handed or a left-handed person for the multiple usage of the single brush as described.

Having thus described my invention and the advantages thereof, I do not wish to be limited to the details herein disclosed, otherwise than as set forth in the claims, but what I claim is:

1. A hairdressers brush comprising a head and several rows of bristles arranged thereon longitudinally thereof, one of the rows of bristles being located adjacent one edge of the brush head, said one row of bristles being relatively stiff and coarse, a row of bristles adjacent the opposite edge of the brush head spaced from the first-named row of bristles, said second row of bristles being relatively fine, soft, and flexible, and a plurality of intermediate rows of bristles which are shorter than the rows of bristles at the edges of the brush head, the shorter row of bristles next to the coarse bristles, and the coarse bristles, being synthetic and the ,fine flexible bristles being natural.

2. A brush comprising a head and a plurality of generally parallel rows of bristles thereon, the first row of bristles appearing at an outside edge of said head and being synthetic and relatively stifi and coarse, another row of bristles adjacent the first row of bristles being shorter in length, also synthetic and relatively stiff and coarse, a row of bristles at the opposite edge of the brush which are natural fine soft bristles, and a row of bristles adjacent theretoof coarser but natural bristle.
