DUAL PURPOSE HAIR COMB Filed sept. 25, 1884 Ant/;any affag/ia IN VL` N TOR 4 United States Patent O 3,3%,865 DUAL PURPUSE HAIR (20MB Anthony Battaglia, North Miami Beach, Fla. (455 NW. 202 Terrace, Miami, Fla. 33169) Filed Sept. 25, 1964, Ser. No. 399,289 2 Claims. (Cl. 132-126) This invention relates to a unitary-type multipurpose implement which is functionally designed and stmcturally adapted for deft handling and unique use by a hairdresser and pertains, more particularly, to a special adaptation which is expressly used for dry-hair comb-out purposes.

The principral objective is to provide hairdressers and stylists with a simple and practical easy-to-use timesaving instrumentality which |is characterized by sel-f-contained progressively usable facilities capable of adapting themselves to the steps which have to be executed and to achieve the desired dry-hair comb-out result.

Another object of the concept is to enable the user to create fine styling solely with the herein disclosed implement and to dispense with 'many of the accessories and endorsed innovations currently but questionably in use. Comparably speaking, the above mentioned implement is of the utmost in simplicity and offers users a real aid which will greatly assist in solving those problems which have long existed but have not, until now, been solved.

To the ends desired, the implement lunder consideration -and herein revealed has to do with two Companion units or components; namely, a conventional-type comb for initial combing and French lacing and an addenda afixed to one end of the back of said comb and constituting a secondary comb and which enables the user to expertly lift and stroke the hair into its final state; that is, to put the final touch on an excitingly glamorous hairdo.

These together with other objects and advantages which will -become subsequently apparent reside in the details of construction and operation as more fully hereinafter described and claimed, reference being had to the accompanying drawings forming a part hereof, wherein like numerals refer to like parts throughout, and in which:

FIGURE 1 is a view in perspective of a dual purpose hairdresser's comb or implement constructed in accordance `with the principies of the present invention;

FIGURE 2 is a view on a slightly enlar-ged scale taken on the plane of the section line 2-2 of FIGURE 1 looking in the direction of the indicating arr-ows; and

FIGURE 3 is an enlarged fragmentary view in section and elevation taken on the plane of the longitudinal section line 3-3 of FIGURE l.

Referring now to the views of the drawing with the assistance of reference numerals it Will be noted (FIG. 1) that one component part or unit is denoted as an entity by the numeral 6. The complemental and consequently companion unit is ldenoted by the numeral '8. These two units, also referred to as primary and secondary combs, are joined together in end-to-end ready-to-use properly oriented relationship. The primary comb or unit 6 comprises 'an eloingated back 10 whose lengthwise leading edge 12 is provided at ;the righthand end with an integral ri'gidifying tooth 14 and elsewhere with right angulai'ly directed regular teeth 16, the latter being at right angles to the edge 12 and longitudinally spaced apart and of substantially uniform construction. The .secondary comb or unit 3 is integrally attached to the lefthand terminal end portion 18 of the comb 'back 10. This comb or unit is of unique construction and as will be hereinafter evident is an innovation 'when considered in conjunction with its companion primary comb 6. This unit '8 is characterized by a component part which is broadly designated as a head 20. This head, more specifically, comprises a blocklike member having a planar or flat top surface 22 which is flush With the corresponding surface of the comb back c ICC 10 and having a parallel bottom surface 24, the two surfaces 22 and 24 being parallel to each other and the bottom surface being likewise flush with the bottom surface of the comb back 10. It follows that the cross-sectional thickness of this block or head corresponds to the cross-sectional dimension of the comb back 10. It will be further noted that this head has a straight-across flat marginal edge 26 which is designated as a trailing edge and which is parallel to the slightly longer planar leadedge 28. These two edges 26 and 28 .are spaced a requisite distance apart to provide the desired gripping or holding function of the head. It will be further noted that the head is slightly elongated and that the marginal side edges 30 are planar and converge from the edge 28 to the trailing edge 26. It will 'be further noted that the end portion 18 of the 'back 10 is joined to one corner portion of the head; that is, at one end of the edge 26. It will be further noted that the teeth 16 are of a length that the tip or terminal portions thereof terminate in a common plane which is a'ppr-oximately flush or even with the end portion 32 of the trailing edge 26. The leading edge 28 is provided with five more or less elongated tines or prongs and these are denoted by the numeral 34. All of the prongs are linearly straight iand of the same length and cross-section. As a matter of fact, the terminal ends are substantially blunt and the inner end portions 36 (FIG. 3) are embedded in the median portion of the head. More specifically, they penetrate the leading edge 23 and are embedded midway between the top and bottom surfaces 22 .and 24.

It should be observed that these prongs or tines (also referred to as final placement fingers) are substantially circular or round in cross-section. Further these tines are of a length greater than the length of the teeth 16 and are in a common plane and at right angles to the lengthwise dimensions of the teeth 16. Trial and error experimentation has shown that the invention is ideal to cope with current hair styles and can be cleverly eXecuted with 'appreciable ease and adaptability. Its functional usage is outstanding and has been found to serve the purposes for which the instrumentality has been evolved and produced.

It is reiterated that the dual purpose iniplement or comb herein shown and described is primarily, if not strictly, a dry hair comb-out adaptation and consequently not to be confused with seemingly similar prior art adaptations such as used for hair curling and which are necessarily used on wet hair.

In using the invention the hair-dresser does not need other accessories or combs. This is to say, the device herein revealed serves the overall requirements to create fine hair styling results. By first manipulating the comb 6 for initial combing and French lacing, the user simply turns the implement around in the same hand and continues to lift and stroke the hair into its final placement. The simplicity of its design, the incomparable aid and facilities available, enables the user to achieve step-by-step fine hairdressing results and to satisfactorily apply the desired finishing touch with requisite nicety, much to the pleasure of the customer and the hair stylist.

The foregoing is considered as illustrative only of the principles of the invention. Further, since numerous modifications and changes will readily occur to those skilled in the art, it is not desired to limit the invention to the exact construction and 'operation shown and described, and accordingly all suitable modifications and equivalents may be resorted to, falling within the scope of the invention as claimed.

What is claimed as new is as follows:

1. A unitary dry-hair comb-out implement for use by a hairdressing stylist comprising, in combination, a blocktype head uniform in cross-sectional thickness and having flat top and bottom parallel surfaces, a straight-across leading marginal edge, a straight-across trailing edge spaced from and parallel With said leading edge, and side edges converging from said leading edge to said trailing edge, a plurality of tines embedded in the leading edge and projecting laterally therefrom, said tines being long and slender, circular in cross-section, corresponding in length, spaced well apart in parallelism and being in a common plane between the respective planes of said top and bottom surfaces, and a complemental comb of a length greater than the overall length of said head and tines and embodying an elongated back of less width than said head and having one end joined to an end portion only of said trailing edge and extending at right angles therefrom, said back being provided on its leading lengthwise edge With lateral uniform teeth, said teeth being of a length less than the lengthwise dimension of the aforementioned leading edge.

2. The structure according to claim 1, and Wherein said comb back is of a cross-sectional dimension correspond- 4 ing to the cross-sectional thickness of said head, and none of the teeth projecting beyond said trailing edge.
