Application filed February 29, 1928.

This invention relates to a beauty parlor dress and hair protector set. The principal object of this invention relates to means for protecting the dress and the hair when the person receiving treatment for the purpose of beautifying the face may be done without interfering with the dress or the hair. It is common practice to use steam in the treatment of the face in order to beautify it, along with other treatments and in this treatment, the patients hair becomes moistened, due to the steam and injures or destroys permanent Waves or other means of fixing the hair. In

order that any moisture or liquid should not reach the clothing of the person receiving the treatment, part of the device consists of a jacket or cape arrangement protecting the upper portion of the dress.

A still further object of the device is to provide means for catching any liquid or moisture that may drop upon the jacket or cape by utilizing the edges of the acket or cape to hold such moisture or liquid within a round turned-up edge of said jacket or cape.

\Vith the foregoing and other objects in view which willappear as the description proceeds, the invention resides in the combination and arrangement of parts and in the details of construction hereinafter described and claimed, it being understood that changes in the precise embodiment of the invention herein disclosed, can bemade within the scope of what is claimed, without departing from the spirit of the invention.

The invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawing, wherein Figure 1 is a side elevation of the device in partial posit-ion upon a person to be treated.

Figure 2 is a front elevation of the jacket or .cape.

Figure 3 is a rear view'showing a. cap member of the set in proper position for protecting the hair.

Figure 4 is a cross section taken on line H of Figure 2.

Figure 5 is a cross section taken on line 5 5 of Figure 2.

Figure 6 is a cross section taken on line 66 of Figure 2.

In the manufacture of this beauty parlor dress and hair protector set, it is desirable to use moisture-proof material such as rubber or the like, in order to prevent the moisture Serial No. 258,086.

or liquid from penetrating through the protector set and doing damage to the dress or the hair.

By referringto Figure 1 it will be seen that I have provided a cap member 1 which is formed so as to fit snugly over the forehead and around the face inclosing the hair of the person to be treated. The rear portion of the same is provided with a puekering string 2 functioning within folded edge 5 of a rear portion of the cap member 1 in order that the cap may be pulled into a position so as to fit snugly over the persons head that is being treated. It will also be seen that there is provided strings 4t positioned at a lower point 5 of the cap for the purpose of adjusting and causing a tight fit when used in combination with the puckering string 2. By referring to Figure 3, the cap is shown with the puckerin string 2 drawn into place and the strings 4 properly tied in order to hold the cap in a dev sired position; It is desirable that the cap should be made of elastic material such as rubber, rather than un-elastic material in order that the varying sizes and shapes of heads to be treated may be fitted with this cap 1.

The set also comprises a jacket or cape 6 provided with a collar 7 and an adjusting string 8 for the collar, in order to insure a snug fit of the collar about the neck of the individual being treated. This jacket or cape is provided with a front overlap 9 which is secured in an over-lapping position by means of ordinary snaps 10. An outer edge 11 of the acket or cape is provided with a curled edge forming a tubular member as shown in Figures 4, 5 and 6. This tubular member is held in this desired form by being secured at intervals to the cape portion as shown at point 12 in Figures 4 and 5, in order that the moisture may be able to find its way into this tubular memberat portions between. the securing points 12 are left open as shown, at point 13 in Figure 6. v

By referring to Figures 1 and 2 it will be seen that liquid or moisture will be retained within this outer edge 11 due to the fact that ends 14 are upwardly curved leaving a bottom retaining portion'15 at the front of the jacket or capeG and at the rear portion 16.

What I claim is In a device of the class described, a cape formed of moisture resisting material, an overlapping collar for said cape adjusting strings for said collar in order to insure a snug fit about the neck, a front overlap secured by snaps, an outer edge of cape provided With a tubular edge, said tubular member held in desired formby being secured at intervals to the cape portion, liavings openings between the said securing places in order that moisture may be able to find its Way into this 10 tubular member, substantially as described. In testimony whereof I a'fiix my signature.
