No. 876,402. PATENTED JAN. 14, 1908. W. F. SCHAGHT.

Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Jan. 14, 1908.
Application filed April 3.1907- Serial No- 367.043.
The object of the invention is to provide a simple, cheap and e'lllcient curler formed of soft rubber, rubber compound or other resilient material, somewhat in the shape of a pin, pointed at one end and having a head at the other end, provided with an eye through which the pointed end ispassed after the hair has been wound on the curler.
In the accompanying drawing: Figure 1 is a view. of the hair curler as seen from one side. Fig. 2 is a cross section on the line 2-2 of Fig. 1, enlarged. Fig. 3 is a perspective View of the hair curler applled.
Similar numerals indicate the same parts on all the figures.
The hair curler comprises a stem 1, a tip 2,
and ahead 3, molded or otherwise mader of he.
stem and tip may be semi-circular in cross soft rubber or other resilient material.
section, as shown, and of such length and Width as will best attain the object sought. The hair curler is preferably made with a slight taper from the head 3 to the junction of the stem 1 with the tip 2, whence the reduction in size is more pronounced, finishing as a blunt point 4 at the end of the tip. On one side of the tip 2, which for convenience of description, will be called the top, a plurality of longitudinally spaced studs 5 project a short distance above the surface as shown, so that when the hair curler is looped as in Fig. 3, and the tip 2 passed through an aperture 6 in the head 3, one or another ofthe studs 5 will prevent the withdrawal of the tip by the resiliency of the material. The shape of the aperture 6 is similar to the stem 1 but slightly smaller so that the tip when pulled therethrough will be held tightly in place by the enlargement of the aperture owing to the resiliency of the head 3.
Projecting from the head on the side opposite the stem 1 is a finger piece 7 integral with the head 3, which is held by one hand while pulling the tip 2 through the aperture 4 with the other hand. The finger piece 7 may'have a piece of cloth 3 or other nonresilient material incorporated therewith to strengthen it if thorwht best. The head 3 is flat on the top and bottom, and curved on the sides; its thickness is that of the stem 1. This shape and size is optional and may be changed if desired. I
In applying the hair curler, a lock of hair is wound tightly on the stem after which the tip 2 is pushed into the aperture 6 and its end caught by the lingers and drawn therethrough until the loop, formed by the bent stem, is sulliciently tight. The friction ol' the tip in the aperture i" sulllcient to hold it in place when a small lock of hair is wound on the stem, but to insure its retention at all times, it thought best to place the studs 5 on the tip. After the hair has curled, the tip is withdrawn from the aperture and the curler slipped cndwise from the hair without uncoiling it.
Having thus described the invention what is claimed is i '1. As an article of manufacture, a hair curler made of soft resilient material in the form of a pin, having a tapered tip, a perforated head and a finger piece projecting from the, head.
2. As an article of manufacture, a hair curler made of soft resilient material in the form of a pin, having a perforated head, a tapered tip provided on one side with a plura'lity of longitudinally spaced lugs, and a finger piece projecting from said head.
In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my own, I have hereto alllxed my signatui e in the presence of two witnesses.
