8 Claims. (01. 122-55) dress devices.-

At the present time, there is a coming vogue among women of dressing the hair in such a manner thatthe hair is in a roll adjacent the sides and base of thehead. This form of hair This invention relates to improvements in hair dress is particularly suited for evening. wear,

effect said hair dress easily, quickly, and satisfactorily.

In the drawing:

Figure 1 is a rear perspective view showing a hair dress resultant upon useof the device of the invention,

Figure 2 is a rear perspective view, showing how the device of the invention is positioned on the head prior to rolling the hair thereover to produce the hair dress shown in Figure 1,

Figure 3 is a perspective view of the device of the invention, and,

Figure 4 is a sectional view on the line 4-4 of Figure 3, and on an enlarged scale from Figure 3.

Referring to the drawing, a rolled hair dress is shown in Figure l at l, and another form of said rolled hair dress at 2. Thi rolling effect is accomplished by the use of the device shown in Figure 3. This device includes an elongated body 3 provided onits periphery with a plurality of prongs 4, whichmay be arranged in longitudinal rows with the prongs of one row in staggered spaced relationship to prongs of an adjacent row as, for instance, illustrated at 5 and 6. Intermediate the prongs of the several rows are diametric openings or holes 1, the cross-sectional diameter of which is preferably greater than the diameter of the base of the prongs 4, as see Figure 4. The body 3 and prongs 4 are preferably formed of some elastic material, such as sponge rubber which, when cured, will have a rough surface 8. The ends 9 and IQ of the body are tapered and provided with hooks II and 12. These hooks may be retained in the body in any preferred manner. Generallya ribbon or cord of some formis secured to each hook, and the ribbons or cords tied together so as to hold the body 3 about the head of the user thereof.

In one embodiment, the body 3 may be formed from sheet sponge rubber by cutting the sheet to size, splitting, then rolling into tubular form and gluing. Such a construction provides a rough periphery suitable in certain instances in the practice of the invention. The ends are provided with hooks and ties as before described.

The operation, uses and advantages of the invention are as follows:

The hair is first smoothly combed, so as to lie adjacent the scalp. The body 3 is then laid against the head in the manner shown in Figure 2, and the cords 0r ribbons, which are secured to the hooks II and I2, are then tied together,

described. The strands I3 are then brought up and around the body of the device, and tucked to produce the hair roll shown in Figure 1 at l.

The prongs 4 act to separate strands of the hair so that thehair is held evenly about the body 3. The openings 1 function to permit passage of air through the body 3 and generally act to dissipate heat resultant upon using" the device.

The device is preferably made of sponge rubber which may be colored to correspond with theshade of hair; for instance, black for black hair; various shades of brown for brown hair, and straw for blonde hair.

Furthermore, the device may be made in various lengths to permit its use wherever a hair roll effect is desired, as for instance, illustrated at 2 in Figures 1 and 2. In this instance, a device of short length would be utilized, and the hair combed thereover to produce the roll.

We do not wish to restrict the invention to any, particular length of device and for the reasons stated.

A device of this characterhas been found in actual practice to be light, comfortable to wear, capable of producing hair rolls that are sightly,

and without the member 3 being visible through condition, as it may be washed, and due to the numerous openings therein, will dry quickly.

We claim:

1. A device for producing a rolled hair dress, including an elongated body, and spaced prongs projecting from the surface of said body.

2. A device for producing a rolled hair dress, including a cylindrical body, and spaced rows of prongs extending from the periphery of said body.

3. A device for producing a rolled hair dress, including a cylindrical body, spaced rows of prongs on the periphery of said body, alternate rows of prongs being in staggered relationship.

4. A device for producing a rolled hair efiect, including an elongated body, spaced prongs on the periphery of said body, and said body provided with through openings spaced intermediate the prongs.

5. A device for producing rolled hair dress, including an elongated sponge rubber body, and spaced prongs radially extending from the periphery of said body.

6. A device for producing a rolled hair dress, including an elongated sponge rubber body, and means for ends of said body whereby the said body may be secured on the head of the user.

7. A device for producing a rolled hair dress, including an elongated sponge rubber body colored to match the hair of its user and provided on its periphery with spaced prongs for maintaining the hair rolled thereabout in defined position, and means for holding said body on the head of its user.

8. A device for producing a rolled hair dress, including an elongated sponge rubber body colored to match the hair of its user and provided on its periphery with spaced prongs for maintaining the hair rolled thereabout in defined position, and means for holding said body on the head of its user, said body being formed with means to permit airflow therethrough.
