1 Claim.
This invention refers to an improved neck collar
suitable for use of beauty shops and where the
customer is to receive a shampoo or other washing
treatment of the face or head.
Its purpose is an
5 auxiliary protector collar to prevent moisture and
liquids getting down the neck of the customer to
his discomfort and to the injury of his or her
neck-wear. It is further provided that the per
son may be sprayed with water on his face or head
without the possibility of the liquid passing be
yond the edge of the collar of the user. Another
feature is to have the device adapted for facile
attachment and so it will be economical and suit
able for commercial development. Other pur
poses will> become apparent as the invention is
more fully set forth.
While collar pieces have been used in the past
for the use of the barber to prevent hair getting
down the neck of the customer and to take care
of the slight amount of perspiration that exudes
2o on this part of the body, such iìeld is not within
the scope of this invention. This invention is
primarily designed for use in beauty shops where
a considerable amount of water or other liquids
are used on the face or head, that streams onto
the neck, where they usually spoil the neckwear
of the user. In this invention, the protector
collar is made soft and convenient for use against
the skin of the neck, and has its upper portion
formed to cover the edge of the collar of a water
30 proof cape and provide a waterproof ñashing that
will direct the water away from the neck to the
body of the cape, where it will pass oñ‘ harmlessly.
The collar is made up in three sections, an outer
covering of surgical gauze network, completely
extended over the whole collar; a padding of
cellucotton or the like inside of the outer covering
mentioned; this padding being folded into a plural
lap with the edges open and free, and a third sec
40 tion o1- cellophane material or the like, such as
sylphrap, etc., set in on the front or outside face
of the collar, between the covering and the pad
ding. It is bent over to form a short outer leg to
depend over the outer edge of a collar of the
waterproof cape, and a relatively long leg on the
inside face of the cape collar, where it comes into
contact with the skin and neck of the user.
In the drawing which illustrates an embodi
ment of this invention, Figure 1 shows a view of a
collar embodying this invention, in position on
the waterproof cape of a person using same,
Figure 2 is a detail of the collar before folding
to indicate the construction of its sections,

(Cl. 2-50)
into a collar for use on the collar of a waterproof
Similar reference characters refer to similar
parts throughout the drawing.
In the construction shown in the drawing I rep- 5
resents a conventional cape suitable for covering
the patrons of a beauty shop. The cape is pro
vided with a collar 2, over which the protector
collar 3 is folded and rests. This protector collar
consists of three sections, the outer covering 4 is
of surgical gauze with its open netting, and acts
as a vehicle to keep the internal sections together
and in place. Inside of the collar is provided a
padding unit 5 of cellucotton or the like which ls
relatively absorbent. The third section consists
of a transparent cellophane leaf 6, which is
loosely held between one outside face of the pad
ding unit and the netting of the surgical gauze.
'I‘he materials are bent into a U-form, 1, as out
lined in Figure 3, with the cellophane leaf form- 20
ing the outside curve of the saine. This places
the leaf on the outside of the protector collar,
from the outside lower edge around the top of the
collar aríd‘down a slight way against the neck of
the user. The U-form has its outside leg rela
tively short, while the inner portion is longer.
The upper portion of the latter being faced with
cellophane leaf, and its lower part faced with
padding. 'I'he leaf stiffens the collar and tends
to make it keep its shape.
The use of the protector collar on a cape enables
the cape collar to be tightly secured around the
neck of the user, and tight against water. The
water used in shampooing the patron flows down
to the protector collar, meets the cellophane leaf 35
and sheds or continues to the surface of the cape,
away from the user’s person. Should any water
or moisture get in the crevice between the pro
tector collar cellophane leaf and the user’s neck
and seep down, it will pass the cellophane leaf and
continue to the padding, which it will quickly and
properly absorb, leaving the skin of the neck dry.
This keeps the customer’s neck dry and clean at
all times. This padding is soft to the neck, while
its plural folding enables it to absorb more sub 45
stantially, and keep it from getting noticeably
moist to the skin.
At the. same time it is ar
ranged to keep the collar of the cape dry and
clean. The arrangement provides a most effective
method of doing the work mentioned. The mate
rials are inexpensive, and the use of the transpar
ent leaf enables the patron to appreciate the
newness of the collar when it is placed on his neck
and assures him of its first usage.
While but one form of the invention is shown 55
in the drawing it is not desired to limit this appli
cation for patent to this particular form, other
than limited by the prior art, as it is appreciated
that other forms might be used that would employ
same exteriorly and interiorly with the length of
the outside portion being relatively short and the
interior portion relatively long and having an out
the same principles and come Within the scope of
and a Waterproof leaf section exteriorly placed 5
between the netting and the padding, to cover the
relatively short outside portion and the upper por
tion of the interior portion, substantially as de
the appended claim. Having thus described the
invention, what is claimed is:
In combination With a cape and its collar, a
neck protector for shedding liquids from the neck
to the cape, comprising in combination, a body
formed to set over the edge of the cape and cover
side gauze covering, an interior padding section, >
