No. 768,658. I PATBNTED AUG. 30, 1904.





UNITED STATES Patented August 30, 1904.



SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent N0. 768,658, dated August 30, 1904.

Application filed January 9. 1904. Serial No. 188,364. (No model.)

To all whom it may concern: v

' the county of Somerset and State of Pennsyl- Vania, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Hair-Holding Devices, of which the following is a specification.

This invention is an improved construction of a hair-holding device, the object being to provide a simple and efficient device by means of which the hair can be securely held in position at the top and also at the back and at the pompadour or front; and with this object in view the invention consists in the novel features of construction, combination, or arrangement, all of which will be fully described hereinafter and pointed out in the claims.

In the drawings forminga part of this specification, Figure 1 is a View showing the practical application of my invention. Fig. 2 is a detail view of the device detached from the hair. Fig. 3 is a detail view showing the spring-lock for securing the ends of the top fastener, and Fig. 4: a top plan view of the pompadour holder and former.

In carrying out-my invention I provide a pompadour holder, former, or shaper A and .a fastening device or comb B for holding the coils of the hair upon the top of the head and a clasp G for securing the strands of hair at the back of the head, said parts being connected by means of the chains D and E, respectively. The pom padour holder and former may be made of any suitable material, and comprises a curved and rolled plate portion A and the forwardly-projecting teeth A the fastener devices B, hinged at their forward ends, as shown at B ,,and provided with a spring-locking device B at their rear ends, said locking device being released by means of a pin B". WVhen the members B are locked together, an oval-shaped frame is provided, and each member B is provided with a series of inwardly-projecting teeth 13 and also a number of longer teeth or prongs B, said teeth and prongs being adapted to enter the coils of the hair at the top of the head, and thereby securely holding them against displacement.

A clasp 0 comprises a frame 0 of any shape or design, having a pin C hinged thereto and adapted to engage the keeper O at the opposite end of the frame. As before stated, this clasp is adapted to be fastened at the back of the head for the purpose of holding the strands of hair at that point in their proper position, and inasmuch as the parts are connected by means of chains it is obvious that it Will be impossible for the said parts to'move to any considerable extent, as each and every part tends to hold the other parts in their proper places.

Having thus fully described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is

1. A device ofthe kind described comprising a pompadour holder and shaper, a clasp for the back hair, and a toothed frame for engaging the top coils of the hair, said pompadour-holder and clasp being connected to the toothed frame by means of chains as set forth.

2. A device of the kind described comprising a pompadour holder and shaper, a clasp for the back hair, and a toothed frame for the top hair consisting of two members hinged together and provided with spring-locking means, the pompadour-holder and the clasp being connected to the toothed frame by means of chains as set forth.

3. A device of the kind described comprising a pompadour-holder, a clasp for the back hair and a toothed frame, said pompadourholder' and clasp being connected to the toothed frame by means of chains, the pompadourholder consisting of a curved, rolled plate havingforwardly-projecting teeth,the toothed frame consisting of two members hinged together and provided with spring locking means, each membercarrying a series of inwardly-projecting teeth, all of said parts being adapted to operate substantially as described.
