Arens: Erica MAX MULLER,y or NEW YORK, 1v. Y.

HAIR-riemen Application led October 25, 1919. Serial No. 333.240'.

To all whom t may concern.' I

Be it known that I, MAX MULLEI, a citi- Zen of the United States, and a resident of the city of New York, borough of Manhattan, in the county and State of New York, have invented a new and Improved Hair- Fringe, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description. a

rlhe invention relates Y to human hair structures, and its object is to provide a new and improved hair fringe adapted to be worn over the users hair at the back of the head to provide a bobtail effect without requiring bobbing of the natural hair of the user.

Another object is to permit of Quickly and securely fastening the hair fringe in position on the wearers head or removing it therefrom whenever it is desired to do so.

YVith these and other objects in view, the invention consists of certain novel features of construction as hereinafter shown and described and then specifically pointed out in the claims.

A practical embodiment of the invention is represented in the accompanying drawings forming a part of this specification, in

which similar characters of reference indicate 'corresponding parts in all the views.

Figure 1 is a perspective view of the improved hair fringe as applied;

Fig. 2 is a fragmentary reai' elevation of the improved hair fringe;

Fig. 3 is a cross section of the same;

Fig. -t is a reduced plan view of the same; and I Fig. 5 is a similar view of a modified form of the same.

The improved hair'structure in its general construction comprises a fringe of hair 10, a comb 11 and fastening means 12, such as stitches, fastening the upper portion of the comb 11 to the upper portion of the fringe 10 at the rear face thereof. The hair fringe 10 is formed of strands of hair doubled up and strung one alongside the other on a wire, tape, or similar flexible carrier 13. The stitches forming the fastening means 12 pass through apertures 1-1 in the upper portion of the comb and around the carrying means 18 for the strands of hair.

By the arrangement described the top of the fringe 10 extends above the top of the comb 11 and the fringe is somewhat longer than the comb and hence the ends of the fringe project beyond the ends of the comb p user.

thus completely concealing the latter., 'The comb'll yis of segmental shape and consequently gives ya segmental shape to the fringe 10,V and in order to attach the hair structure to the users head it is only necessary to push the prongs'of the comb 11 into the naturalhar ofthe user, at the back of thev head, a desired distance above the neck, to provide a bobtail effect without requiring bobbing of the natural hair ofthe user Instead of using a single comb 11, two side combs 2O (see Fig. 5) may be used to supporty the fringe 10 on the wearers head. Y

rlhe strands of hair are preferably curled and the ends of the curls are preferably turned up and tiedin the mass of hair of the fringe by hairpins so that the ends of the curls do not'dangle down at the neck of the It is understood that the fringe is preferably made up to provide curls but I do not limit vmyself to this particular form as the hair maybe made up in other styles.

It will be noticed that by the arrangement described the userl can quickly attach the hair in position at the head or remove it l therefrom whenever it is desiredto do so. Y

aving thus described my invention, I

claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent z- 1. As an article of manufacture, a fringev of hair comprising strands of hair having doubledaip portions, a flexible carrier on which the said doubled-up portions of the strands are strung one alongside the other, and a segmental comb fitting the inner face of the said fringe and having its upperedge below the top of the doubled-up portion of the strands, the said comb ybeing provided along its upper portion with openings and fastening means engaging vthe said comb vopenings and looped around the said carrier to fasten the strands to the comb.

2. As an article of manufacture, aV fringe of hair, comprising strands of hair doubled up and having the doubled portions arranged one alongsidethe other and fastened together, a segmental comb, and fastening means fastening the comb to the inner face of the fringe at the doubled portions of the strands, the ends of the fringe of hair prov jecting beyond the ends of the said comb and the top of the fringe of hair extending above the edge of the comb, the strands of hair being curled.
