fo all whom it may concern:
Be 1t known that we, LAURA LEEy and KATHERINE Gr. LEE, citlzens of the United States, and residents of New York city,;
borough of Manhattan, in the county of New York and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Shampoo-Caps, of which the following Ais a specification.
The object of our invention is to provide means to shield-the face and prevent water, soap suds, etc. from flowing upon the persons face and their eyes, ears etc. when shampooing, washing or treating the hair or scalp, and also to permit the person to see through the cap or shield while performing such operations.
Our invention comprises a cap or shield of impervious or waterproof material provided with an opening to lit over the head 0f the user, to permit the hair to be exposed or pulled through such opening, the cap or shield-thus hanging down all around the face and neck, so as to cover and protect the eyes, ears, nose and mouth, whereby to cause water, soap suds etc. that are applied upon the hair above the cap or shield to Aflow along the depending part of the cap without engaging the user. In the front wall of the cap is an opening having'a transparent protector, such as Celluloid or the like, suitably secured in line with the opening, whereby the user may look through the cap to aid in the work. Uur invention also comprises novel details of ilnprovement that will be more fully hereinafter set forth and pointed out in the claim.
Reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings forming part hereof, wherein,
Figure 1 is a perspective view illustrating our improvement in use; Fig. 2 -is a plan view of our improved cap, and Fig. 3 is a section, enlarged, on the line 3, 3, in Fig. 2.`
In the drawings the numeral lf-indicates our improved cap or shield which is made of a suitable piece of ieXible material water- .proof or impervious to the passage of water, and it may be made of rubber sheeting or the like. Said cap or shield is shown provided with an opening 2 to receive the upper portion of the head of the wearer, whereby the hair may be exposed or pulled through the cap and the latter will hang down around Specification of Letters Patent.

r the face and neck (see Fig. l). IVe have l shown opening 2 as pro-vided at its edge with a rutile 3, which may be of the same material as the cap,.and which is shown sel cured to the cap by stitches 4, the meeting ledges ofthe cap and ruiiie beingshown j folded. Said rutile so fastened to the edges l of the opening 2 of the cap serves to strengthen said edges and the binding of the twov parts together provides a non-flexible edging at the opening, whereby to prevent the cap from slipping down too far l over the head or around the neck, and thus the cap is maintained firmly in operating position on the head.
The cap is shown substantially in oval form, whereby to conform properly around the face and neck of the user. At the portion that comes in front of the eyes of the user cap l` is provided with an opening 5 which is shown protected by transparent material 6. Said material is shown attached around opening 5 by stitches 7, the transparent material 6 being shown laid against the edges of opening l and reinforced by a strip of material 8, the parts 1, G and 8 being held together by stitches 7.
In using our improved' cap or shield the same is placed over the head and the hair is lexposed or pulled through opening 2, and the opening 5 is adjusted in front of the eyes. the hair or scalp in any desired manner, and the water, soap suds etc. will flow down along the cap or shield and thus will be prevented from entering the eyes, ears, mouth, nose etc. and accumulating around the neck, and the user may readily see the soap, water etc, that is being used by looking through the protected opening 5.
The advantages of our improvements will be obvious. The impervious or waterproof material 1 will not become saturated with water and when the shampooing or other treatment of the hair has been finished the cap may be readily removed bjf pulling vit olf the head.
Our invention is simple andv cheap to manufacture, efficient in use and not uncomfortable to the user.
Having now described our invention .what we claim is A head protecting cap comprising flexible Waterproof material provided with an The operator may then wash or treat opening for the passage of a portion of the I New York and State of New York this 27th head to expose the hair above the cap, said day of June A.
