1 Claim, 4 Drawing Figures U.S. Patent Dec. 30, 1975 3,929,143

COIFFURE HOOD SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION My invention relates to an improved coiffure hood, and particularly to a hood which will fit about an Afro hair-do so as to protect the hair from rain or other water.

An advantage of my coiffure hood is that it is vented and fitted with external handles and a slide fastener for ready removal.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWING The objects and features of the invention may be understood with reference to the following detailed description of an illustrative embodiment of the invention, taken together with the accompanying drawings in which:

FIG. 1 is a front view of the invention in use;

FIG. 2 is a side view of the invention in use;

FIG. 3 is a top plan view of the invention; and

FIG. 4 is a sectional view of the slide fastener and protective flaps.

DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENT Turning now descriptively to the drawings, in which similar reference characters denote similar elements throughout the several views, FIGS. 1-2 illustrate the coiffure hood l worn over the hair of the wearer 15. The hood is comprised of two half-sections l1 and 12 joined together by a zipper slide fastener 13 that extends from the mid-front position of the hood to the mid back position. An elastic band 16 borders each half-section l1 and 12 along the front forehead area, with a snap fastener 17 serving to join both elastic bands in place.

A folding handle 21 is fastened externally to each side of the hood for ease of removal.

The slide fastener 13 is protected from engaging the hair by a flap 22 of material on half-section 11 that extends under the fastener 13.

Vent holes 25 for the admission of heated air supplied by a hair dryer (not shown) are located in the uppermost central position of the hood l0 and are covered, when not in use, by a flap of material 26 attachable to the external top of the hood by snap fasteners 27. Vents 28 are fitted in each side of the hood and covered by hinged flaps 29.

Since obvious changes may be made in the specific embodiment of the invention described herein, such modifications being within the spirit and scope of the invention claimed, is is indicated that all matter contained herein is intended as illustrative and not as limiting in scope.

Having thus described the invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent of the United States is:

l. A coiffure hood for protecting the hair-do of a wearer which is formed of two half-sections of flexible material joinable by a slide fastener, said slide fastener protected from engaging the hair of the wearer by a flap of material, attached to one section which extends under the slide fastener, when worn, in which each half-section is fitted on its side with an external folding handle, with vent holes located in the top central portion of the hood for admission of heated air, said vent holes being covered by a removable flap of material held in place by snap fasteners, and with a side vent hole located in the side of each half-section adjacent the external handle, with the half-sections and slide fastener formed so that the two half-sections form the two lateral sides of the assembled hood, with the slide fastener extending over the mid-section of the front, top and back of the assembled hood.
