United. States Patent 3,392,737 HAIR NET Irving Y. Fefierman, Los Angeles, Calif., assignor to David Wakcher Filed Mar. 11, 1965, Ser. No. 438,950 1 Claim. (Cl. 132-49) ABSTRACT OF THE DISCLOSURE This disclosure relates to a hair net of generally cylindrical shape terminating at one end in a wide band of satin-like material for surrounding the wearers forehead. The other end of the cylindrical shape is open and adapted to receive a small plastic ring which will circumferential'ly collapse the other end at a desired point determined by the height of the persons hair-do above her head. The satin band includes a'split along its width to define 0pposed ends which may be overlapped a desired degree and held in such overlapped relationship by a pressure adhesive.

This invention relates generally to hair nets and more particularly to an improved hair net adaptable to protect elaborate hair-dos while sleeping.

Conventional hair nets usually comprise a simple net material terminating in an elastic band structure applied over a persons head in the manner of a bathing cap. With such structures there is no convenient means of adjusting the size of the net to accommodate a persons hair, particularly when the person has an elaborate hair-d0 such as a bouffant style hair-do. Further, there is a tendency for the conventional type of hair net to slide olf the persons head when the person is sleeping at night.

In addition, when an elastic structure or similar material is employed to hold the net on the wearers head, a weltlike impression may be formed by the elastic structure with resultant discomfort to the wearer.

With the above in mind, it is a primary object of the present invention to provide a vastly improved hair net which overcomes the foregoing problems.

More particularly, it is an object to provide an improved hair net capable of being modified in shape by means of dual adjustments so that various different types of hair-does may readily be accommodated and the securernent of the hair net itself to the persons head can be adjusted for maximum comfort.

Another important object is to provide an improved hair net so designed that there is no tendency for the net to slip 01f the head of the wearer, particularly when sleeping on a pillow.

Other objects are to provide an improved hair net which will adequately protect a persons hair by engaging the hair on the sides and ends firmly but gently, even though elaborate hair-dos such as bouffant styles and the like may be involved, all without crushing the hair.

Briefly, these and many other objects and advantages of this invention are attained by providing a net material generally formed into a cylindrical shape. A relatively wide band of fine satin-like material in turn is secured to one end of the net material. The other end of the net material is open but arranged to be substantially closed by a ring member through which this other end of the material may be passed when positioning the net on a persons head. Essentially the ring circumferentially collapses the cylindrical shape to close the other end, the positioning of the ring member determining the distance of the closed end of the cylindrical shape from the band. As a consequence, the band may be positioned about a persons head with the net material covering the persons hair and the ring adjusted to close the end of the cylin- "ice drical shape about the top of the head so that the net material accommodates the hair in a desired firm and gentle relationship. While the ring is removable from the net, it will naturally be kept on the net and sold with the net as a unit.

A further feature of the invention resides in the provision of a split in the relatively wide satin-like band material to define ends which are positioned in overlapping relationship. The opposed overlapping surface portions of the band ends are provided with pressure adhesive so that they may be secured together with different degrees of overlapping. By this arrangement, the portion of the band encircling the persons head may be circumferentially adjusted to the persons head size so that the hair net may be worn in a comfortable manner. Further, the band is shirred or rufiled along its lower margin to contour the band to the head.

The provision of the wide band of satin-like material permits easy sliding of the persons head with respect to a pillow and the like so that the net will .stay on a persons head and will not be worked off while sleeping as is the case with some prior art structures.

A better understanding of the invention will be had by now referring to a preferred embodiment thereof as illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which:

FIGURE 1 is a front elevational view of the hair net of this invention worn by a person;

FIGURE 2 is a rear perspective view of the net with the ring removed; and,

FIGURE 3 is an enlarged fragmentary cross-section of the band securing means shown in the rear view of FIG- URE 2.

Referring first to FIGURE 1, the hair net comprises a net material 10 generally of cylindrical shape. A wide band of smooth satin-like material 11 is secured to one end of the net material 10, the other end 12 of the net material being open when the net is not worn.

Cooperating with the foregoing structure is a ring member 13 preferably of plastic and adapted to receive the normally open end 12 of the net material so that when this net material is passed through the ring, the cylindrical shape of the net material is circumferentially collapsed or bunched as illustrated in FIGURE 1. The positioning of the ring 13 relative to the open end 12 will determine the distance of the closing of this end relative to the band 11. This adjustment is indicated by the double-headed arrow A.

Referring now to the rear view of FIGURE 2, it will be noted that the band 11 is split to define band ends 14 and 15. These end portions are arranged to overlap each other behind the persons head when the device is worn. As shown in both FIGURES 2 and 3, the opposing surfaces of the ends each include a pressure sensitive adhesive material such as indicated at 16 and 17 for the respective ends 14 and 15. The pressure adhesive material extends over a relatively long length of the surface in a circumferential direction so that when the ends are overlapped, they will adhere together and the degree of overlapping may be adjusted. Such adjustment is indicated by the arrow B in FIGURE 3.

With the foregoing securing means, it is very easy for the wearer to adjust the portion of the hand encircling her head to fit in a comfortable manner. Further, the marginal shirring or rufiling of the band contours the band to improve its fit.

In using the hair net, a person will first position the band 11 about her head bringing the ends thereof into overlapping relationship to provide a snug and yet comfortable fitting of the band about her head. Because of the relatively wide width of the band, a large area of the persons head will be engaged by the band and there will be no unsightly impressions formed nor will there be undue pressure exerted in view of the means provided for readily adjusting the band size.

The upper open end of the nut 12 may then be suitably bunched together and passed through the plastic ring 13 in the event the ring is not already in place, and this ring moved downwardly as indicated by the arrow in FIG- URE 1 to a position to close the end of the net over the top portion of a persons hair depending upon the style of hair-do involved. The net is thus caused to engage the hair in a firm but gentle manner to retain the buoyancy of the hair.

When the person is sleeping, the wide satin-like band 11 will very easily slide on a pillow and thus there is substantially no likelihood of the net being dislodged from the wearers head.

To remove the hair net, the person will simply pull the ends 14 and 15 apart to open up the band 11 and then slide the entire net structure from the top of her head. The ring may remain in place on the net if desired.

From the foregoing description, it will be evident that the present invention has provided a greatly improved hair net in which the various objects set forth heretofore are fully realized. While the invention has been described as particularly useful for protecting elaborate hair-dos, it is equally effective for protecting conventional hair-dos and hair set with curlers or rods.

What is claimed is:

l. A hair net comprising:

(a) a net material formed into a generally cylindrical shape;

(h) a wide band of inelastic fine satin-like material secured to one end of said net material, the other end of said net material being open,

(1) said band being split widthwise to define opposed ends adapted to he overlapped along the split portion,

(2) the Width of said band being such as to cover a major portion of said persons forehead,

(3) said band being rufiled along its lower margin to contour said Width of the band to engage said forehead in full surface contact; U

(0) pressure responsive adhesive material on the opposing overlapping surface portions of said ends of said band, the degree of overlapping determining the size of the portion of said band encircling a persons head throughout a continuous range so that said band may be adjusted to fit said persons head in acomfortable manner; and,

(d) a ring member through which said other end of said material may be passed to circumferentially collapse said cylindrical shape and thereby substantially close said other end, the positioning of said ring relative to said other end determining the distance of the closed end of said cylindrical shape from said band,

whereby said band may be positioned about a persons forehead with said net material covering the persons hair, said ring being adjusted in position to close said other end of said cylindrical shape about the top of said hair so that said net material accommodates said hair in a desired snug relationship.
