This invention relates to a structurally'and through suitable openings `to accomplish> thisre
functionally improved curling apparatusfwhich,
and in its more specific aspects, aims to- provide
a hair curler of this character which may _be
5 readily manipulated by arelatirvely inexperienced
person to desirably curl or wave human hair.
It is an object of the invention to furnish’a
comparatively simple and inexpensive structure
embodying few partseach individually rugged
10 in construction and largely capable of manu
facture by automatic machinery and` methods.
Moreover, these parts when assembled will oper
ate eiìciently over long periods of timeY with
freedom from all difîiculties.
A further object of the invention is that of
providing an apparatus of this nature which rnay
be readily operated without danger of injuring
the hair even if it is left in applied position for
The ends of the wire are extended out
wardly and have a lengthsuch that they lie vad
jacent the er1-doi the body'iß, thus forming a
yoke or bail.
As is well kno-wn to those skilled in the art,
the technique of using" a device o_i- this-‘nature
consists ordinarily in clamping the end of a tress
or strand vof hair between bodyID and tongue
l! and then winding such strand around the
tongue and» body-as indicated in Fig. l. There
after, if the c_urler is left in position for a cer
tain length of time, -the ¿tress will assume a de
sired curled or wavy condition which will be
maintained even after the curler has been de
tached from the tress.
Now, to assure the retention ci `the curler in

With these and other objects in mind, refer

ends of the yoke I3 and is preferably rotatable
with respect thereto. The spherical element
may be furnished by utilizing a sheet of metal
I5, as shown in Fig. 3, and which sheet is shaped 25
to assume the configuration indicated at I6 in
Fig. 4. The ends of the wire or other element
forming the bail or yoke may be flattened or
enlarged as indicated at Il, and these are in

of a spring (not shown).
The pivotal connection between the body and
the tongue is conveniently provided by a strand
55 of wire or similar material I3, which extends
the spherical element and end of the yoke to a 50
position to one side of the body I0 and tongue II.

invention as deñned by the claims.
Having described my invention, what I claim
as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:
lar 23 to which a hook 24 is añixed and beyond
which a grasping portion 25 extends. The length
10 of element 22 is such that in normal condition,
as illustrated in Fig. 6, hook 24 will lie in a po
sition short of the end of the body l0. However,
element 22 may be stretched so that hook 24 may
be extended over the edge of body l0 by simply
.15 grasping portion 25 and exerting a pull upon the
parts such as to shift the position of the hook
24 as desired. »
Element 22 may be provided from any desired
material. Preferably, as shown, however, it is
