UNITED STATES ARNO REINHOLD, OF CLEVELAND, OHIO.

HAIR PROTECTOR.

Application filed April 28, 1926. 7 Serial No. 105,182.

My invention relates to hair protectors and particularly to devices of this character adapted to provide for the more or less permanent maintenance of particular hair dressings, such as marcels, water-waves, etc.

The annexed drawings and the following description set forth in detail certain means embodying my invention, such means constituting,however, but one of the various forms in which the principle of'the invention may be applied.

' In said annexed drawings:

Figure 1 represents a side elevation of my improved hair protector, upon a scale about three-quarters size of the actual article;

Figure 2 is a fragmentary inside view of the far side of the protector shown in Figure 1;

Figure 3 is a side elevation showing my protector applied to a head, the scale being about one-half normal size;

Figure 4 is a front elevation of the prote'c tor, as shown in Figure 3, the head being turned slightly to the right; and

' Figure 5 is a plan View of the protector as shown in Figure 3. I

The protector 1 is made of reticulated or meshed material, shaped to conform tothe general outline of a human head, as shown in the accompanying drawings. It is provided with a rear depending extension 2 adapted to lie adjacent the back of the neck, as plainly shown in Figure 3, and a central longitudinal tape reinforcingsection or band 3 is provided. The upper portion of the front edge of the protector is defined by an inelastic band4 to the ends of which are secured elastic co-operating fastening elements 5, for the purpose of securing the protector in position, as plainly shown in Figure 3.

The prime purpose of the protector is to provide rather full netting sections in the side areas indicated by the ordinals 6, these areas lying substantially between planes passing through the forward portions of the wearers ears and substantially through the outer corners of the eyes, generally described as the temple areas, whereby room may be provided to accommodate special hair dress ings, such as marcels, water-waves, etc, the accommodation afforded being a rather close one without any restraining pressure which would flatten out or partially destroy the particular hair dressing which it is desired These full areas are provided by doubling over the netting adjacently forwardly of-the outer corners of the eyes to form substantially triangular folded-over portions 7 whose bases lie adjacent to the inner edge of the inelastic band 4 and preferably are secured under said inner edge. The

twist or distortion to the netting is given ender said inner edge, further strengthening T and securing -means being afforded by substantially rectangular transverse bands 11 overlapping theinner sides of the triangular doubled-over portions 9 and to'which bands 11 said triangularportions 9 are secured. This construction affords, of course, sections of the netting in the areas 6 of exaggerated capacity or fullness within which the hair dressing may be accommodated in the manner and for the purpose" described. At the same time adjacently forward oftheseareas the inelastic b'and4 rather tightly is applied to the forehead of the wearer.

After applying the protector, the wearer can force the dressing by means of her fingers up under the inelastic band 4, and fluff or pile the dressed hair'into the full areas 6 asfdesired, and the same will be closely accommodated but without any restraining pressure that would flatten out or distort the dressing.

In addition to the above advantages, one other important advantage is afforded by the construction described which is that the distortion to the netting 1 which affords the full areas 6 takes place in those sections of the netting which are above and below, respectively, the lines defined by the ordinals 15 and 16, whereby the netting threads defining the mesh in said areas 6 are not distorted but run respectively parallel to the edge of the band 4, as illustrated by the ordinal 12, and perpendicular to the edge of said band 4, as illustrated by the ordinal 13, whereby there is no distortion of the netting defining the areas 6 during the movement of the head of the wearer or the wearing or friction set up by the reason of the wearers head rubbing on a pillow, because the netting is particularly inelastic in planes parallel to the lines 12 and 18 and cannot stretch or distort itself, as it would stretch into substantially dian'iond-shaped niesh portions, if the lines 12 and 13 were at an angle to the edge of the band 4 other than the riglit angle defined by the transverse lines 12. This advantage, of course, further protects the hair and avoids any distortion of the dressing.

that I claim is: if

1. A hair protector comprising a mesh netting shaped to conform to the general shape of the human head and having a rear depending extension and provided with fastening means, those portions of the netting desi ned to cover the general temple areas of tie head being made full to accommodate a head dress closely but without restraining pressure.

2. A hair protector comprising a mesh netting shaped to conform to the general. shape of the human head and having a rear dqpending extension and provided with fastening means. an inela tic band for the forward edge portion of the protector. the netting sections adjacently forward of vertical planes cutting substantially the outer cor- 11ers of the wearers eyes being turned over upon themselves to form generally triangular folded portions whose bases lie adjacent to said inelastic band and the net-ting sections adjacently rearward of the forward part of the ears being folded over to form generally triangular folded portions whose bases lie adjacent to said inelastic band, whereby special full netting sections are formed in the general temple areas of the head to accommodate a head dress closely but without restraining pressure.

3. A hair protector comprising a mesh netting shaped to conform to the general shape of the human head and having a rear depending extension and provided with astoning means, an inelastic band for the forward edge portion of the protector, the netting sections adjacently forward of vertical planes cutting substantially the outer corners of the wearers eyes being turned over upon themselves to form generally triangular folded portions whose bases are secured under the inner edge of said inelastic band, and the netting sections adj acently rearward of the forward part of the ears being folded over to form generally triangular folded portions whose bases lie adjacent to said inelastic band, and transverse reinforcingband sections to which said last-narned triangular folded portions and the netting sections adjacently for aid thereof are secured, whereby special full netting sections are formed in the general temple areas of the head to accmninodate a head dress closely but without restraining pre sure.

' l. A hair protector comprising a mesh netting shaped to conform to the general shape of the human head and having a rear depending extension and provided with tastening means, an inelastic band for the for ward edge portion of the protector, the netting sections adjacently forward of vertical planes cutting substantially the outer corners of the wearers eyes being turned over upon themselves to form generally triangular folded portions whose bases lie adjacent to said inelastic band, and the netting sections adjacently rearward of the forward part of the ears being folded over to form generally triangular folded portions whose bases lieadjacent to said inelastic band, whereby special full netting sections are formed in the general temple areas of the head to accommodate a head dress closely but without restraining pressure, the net ting sections disposed intern'iediately said two pairs of triangular :lolded portions having the threads defining their mesh running respectively parallel with and perpendicular to the inner edge of said inelastic band.
