COMB ROLL CURLER Filed April 8, 1
6 W 7 W l INVENTOR BY v ATTORNEY Patented Feb. 25, 1941 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE 1 Claim.
The present invention is directed to hair curling or hair rolling means and the primary object thereof is realized in the provision of a comb carrying hair clasping means, the comb functioning to be initially set in a part of a tress of hair while the clasping means is utilized to bodily rotate the comb toroll the tress of hair about the latter, after which the free ends of the hair clasping means is employed to hold the roll of hair in place. The invention has as a further object the provision of an arcuate comb having spaced sockets slidably guiding flexible and foldable covered hair clasping means utilized to prevent unravelling of the curl or roll formed in and about the comb. Other objects, advantages, features, and aspects of the invention will appear from the teachings of the following detailed description considered in connection with the accompanying drawing wherein:
Fig. 1 is a perspective view of the hair curling or rolling means according to the invention.
Fig. 2 is a perspective view showing the covered relation of the hair curling means after the formation of a page r011.
Fig. 3 is a sectional View on the line of Fig. 1.
Fig. 4 is a front elevational view of the hair curling means, and
Fig. 5 is a sectional view on the line 5-5 of Fig. 1.
Referring to the drawing, the hair curling means or hair rolling means is generally denoted, l0 and comprises an arcuate comb ll carrying spaced sockets or eyes l2 which are integrally merged with the body of the comb but extend. rearwardly of the body. The comb and sockets maybe of any suitable moldable and flexible material well known in the art such as Celluloid, acetate, and catalin, etc.
Slidably guided by the spaced sockets is the clasping or fastening means generally denoted M in the form of a cloth covered substantially rectangularly shaped pliable flexible and settable metal member I5.
To form a curl or roll, the comb is first set into the ends of the tress of hair as indicated in Fig. 1. By this operation the strands of hair are anchored by the teeth of the: comb. Thereafter the operator grasps the free ends I6 of the hair clasping means I4 and rotates the latter about its long axis. Hence, the tress of hair becomes coiled or rolled in and about the comb, to form a plurality of convolutions I! as illustrated in Fig. 2 to characterize the curl generally denoted l8.
Subsequently the free ends l6 Which initially serve as manipulatable means in winding the tress of hair about the comb are bent inwardly and against the rear face of the curl or roll formed. The inherent character of the pliableclasping means is such that after the latter has been bent or deformed it remains in a set position in such deformed relation. It follows therefore, that the free ends l6 serve to prevent unravelling of the curl when in a clamping relation thereagainst.
Having wound and clasped the curl, the latter may be readily adjusted to conceal all parts of the free ends l6 of the clasping means I l The comb is left in the curl or roll formed to reinforce the latter and remains concealed after the curl is manually adjusted following the curling operation and setting of the clasping ends l6.
By the present arrangement so called page rolls may be readily formed although it is to be understood that curls other than page rolls can be developed and made: by the herein disclosed construction.
As many changes can be made in the above construction and many widely different species of structural embodiments of the invention can be devised without departing from the scope thereof, it is intended that all matter herein described in the specification and illustrated in the accompanying drawing shall be interpreted as illustrative and not in a limiting sense.
A hair curler comprising an arcuate and flexible body having depending teeth constituting with said body a comb, said body having spaced means defining peripherally closed openings disposed substantially adjacent the ends thereof, and hair clasping means comprising a relatively attenuated flexible and deformable and normally fiat strap disposed longitudinally of said comb and having spaced portions occupying substantially the entire area of the openings of said spaced means and retained by the latter, said strap having ends projecting laterally beyond the sides of said comb and constituting means to facilitate bodily rotation of said comb about its length to form a plurality of hair convolutions about said body, said ends of said strap adapted to be folded to be in back of and against said convolutions to prevent the latter from unravelling from said comb.
