GOLDBERG, OF CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, ASSIGNQB TO THE HUMP EAIRPIN MANUFACTURING COMPANY, OF CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, A CORPORATION OF WEST VIRGINIA HAIRPHT This invention relates to an improvement in hairpins designed particularly for use with short or bobbed hair, wherein due to the particular formation of the hairpin, an unusual frictionalgrip is secured upon the hair with the result of eiiectivelv holding the waves or coils of the hair inv place, notwithstanding the short length of the hairpin.

As an advanta e of the present invention, in addition", to e ectively securing the hairthat itjwill not flatten the curl or, marcel in the hair. The particular hairpin of the thickness bent to provide an open loop and legs, one of-which is substantially straight while the other is crimped. The crimps are so arranged as to contact the face of the straight leg atpredetermined points. I

In the drawing, Fig.1 is a perspective view illustrating the use of the hairpin.

Fig.2 is a side elevational view, and Fig. 3 is a top plan view of the hairpin.

Referring in detail to the drawings, 1 designates a length of resilient material such as metal of greater width than thickness. This length of resilient material is bent to form the open loop 2, straight leg 3 and crimped leg 4 provided intermediate its length with a number of crimps designated 5.

In manufacturing the hairpin of the pres ent invention, the crimps are so arranged that their bases mayor maynot contact the face of the straight leg 3. It is referable however, that a base of one of t e crimps such for instance as shown at 6, shall contactthe faceof the straight leg 3, for the purpose of providing a more eflective springlike gripping engagement between the two legs in order that the hair shall be secure therebetween. The free terminal of the leg 3 extends in a substantially horizontal plane,

whereas, the terminal 7 of the crimped 1 from the plane 9 4 is upturned at an angle the straight leg 3. The purpose of sertion of the hairpin into the hair.

material of greater width than thickness, but

I believe I am the first to construct a hairpin of this class in which one of the legs is substantially straight, and the other leg of which 1s crimped relative to-the straight leg.

I claim as my invention:

1. A hairpin made of spring material havng greater width than thickness, comprislng two opposed legs, one leg of said hairpin being substantially straight and the other leg of which is crimped intermediate its length, said legs being united by an integral connectmg bend, a portion of the crimped leg-being I so constructed as to contact a portion of the straight leg.

2. A hairpin made of spring material comprising two opposed legs, one leg of said hairpm being substantially straight and the other leg of which is crimped intermediate its length, said legs being united by an integral connecting bend, a portion of the crimped leg being so constructed as to contact a. portion of the strai ht leg.
