Application August 11,- 1936, Serial No. 95,473 In France March 28, 1936 v 4 Claims. The curling clips that are ñtted at the present time on heating helmets for permanent waving have the disadvantage that they can be applied only to the ends of the hair locks so that they (Cl. 132-33) of a cam provided with teeth, carried by one of the branches, with an edge, also provided with teeth, carried by the other branch, in such man ner as to avoid any accidental opening of the hair. protecting when it is in position. Other features of the present invention will result from the following detailed description cut the ends of locks which are still curled, or to subject these ends to a new waving treat of some specific embodiments thereof. Preferred embodiments of the present inven tion will be hereinafter described, with reference cannot be used in the case of women with long This is due to the fact that, for waving long hair, the hairdresser is compelled either to ment, together with the portion which is not yet waved, after having wound the locks around the curling clips. In the ñrst case, the length of the hair is not kept constant. In the second case, the part that was already curled risks being uncurled in the said waving oper-ation. In both cases the result is unsatisfactory. The object of the present invention is to pro vide a curling clip for permanent waving which obviates these drawbacks. The curling clip according to the present in vention is characterized in that it includes a central part arranged in such manner that the portion of the hair lock that is still curled can escape from said clip, so that only the portion to be curled is wound around the clip. Accord ing to a preferred embodiment, this clip consists of a rather widely slotted cylindrical tube, the slot extending along a considerable part of the length of the tube. The portion of the lock that is still curled projects through s-aid slot and it is ñxed by a small tongue adapted to engage in the slot, so as to separate the part of the lock that is still curled from the portion that is no longer curled or is not yet so. Since the cylindrical tube is open at one end, to the accompanying drawings, given merely by way of example, and in which: Fig. 1 is a perspective view of a curling clip according to the present invention; Figs. 2 and 3 are cross sectional views of this 16 clip, corresponding to two different relative po sitions of the parts thereof; Fig. 4 is a perspective View of another em bodiment of the curling clip according to the present invention; _ Fig. 6 is a section of one of the branches of a protector according to Fig. 5, this section being made in a plane at right angles to said branch; Fig. 7 is another perspective view of the curl ing clip; Fig. 8 shows the system for turning the curling 30 clip in only one direction; Figs. 9 and 10 are end Views of the curling clip ñtted on the protector. As shown by the drawings, an element I, in the sh-ape of a cylinder or a hyperbolic surface, is fixed in any suitable manner to the device 2 and the tongue cooperating therewith keeps the for securing it to the heating helmet, this device hair lock in position, it suffices to rotate the tube about its axis for winding thereon the part of the lock that is to be curled. Then the curl 40 ing clip is introduced into a heating device, known underl the name of “protector” for per including, for instance, a ratchet wheel 3 ar ranged in such manner that the rotation of tube manent waving. Advantageously, the curling clip, according to the present invention, is ñtted on a protector having the following characteristic features: a. The rubber sleeve which receives the lower branches of the clip and which is intended to bear upon the head of the person to be waved is slotted laterally so as to facilitate its positioning 50 and to avoid that, in case of tearing of the 20 Fig. 5 shows a protector to be used advanta geously in connection with the curling clip, in the open position; l, which constitutes the curling clip, can take place only in one direction when the pawl which 40 cooperates with the ratchet is in operative posi tion. Tube l is provided with a wide slot 4 extending over most of its length, and in which a small tongue 5 can engage. Around this tube I there 45 is fitted a sleeve 6 provided with a slot 'l extend ing over the whole of its length, slot l being slightly wider than slot 4. This sleeve is capable rubber, the hairdresser should be compelled to of turning with respect to tube l. It serves to keep tongue 5 engaged in slot 4 when the hair 50 has been inserted in position and it is desired send the protector to the manufacturer for re to wind the lock to be curled around the clip. placement of the rubber element; b. 'I‘he tightening of the lower branches of 55 the protector is obtained through cooperation ` In the embodiment of Fig. 4, sleeve 6 has been replaced by a semi-cylindrical piece 8, pivoted about axis 8, 9 and the function of which is iden 2 2,124,824 tical to that of sleeve 6, with the only dlñerence that, instead of being turned about its axis, for maintaining tongue 5 in the engaged positionl piece 8 is turned about axis 9, 9, at right angles to the axis of the curling clip. . The working of the device will be readily under stood: Supposing that the end I0 of a hair lock is still curled, while the remainder II of this lock is to be curled, the Whole of the curled portion is 10 engaged through slot 4, then tongue 5 is engaged into slot 4. Part I0 is then pulled until tongue 5 exactly separates the curled portion from that 20 25 30 35 40 "' 45 50 55 60 65 the direction opposed to that above mentioned, so as to 'disengage cam 24 from notch 23. While I. have, in the above description, dis closed what I deem to be practical and eñlcient embodiments of the present invention, it should be well understood that I do not wish to be limited thereto as there might be changes made in the arrangement, disposition and form of the parts without departing from the principle of the pres ent invention as comprehended within the scope 10 of the accompanying claims. What I claim is: ` 1. For use with a permanent hair waving ap which is to be curled. Then the tongue is locked in position, either, as shown by Fig. 1, by turning paratus, a curling clip which comprises, in com sleeve 6 about itself, so as to bring it into the bination, a hollow tubular body open at one end, 15 position of Fig. 3, or, as shown by Fig. 4, by said body being provided with a longitudinal slot extending over substantially the whole length pivoting sleeve 8 about its axis 9, 9. The whole of the part II of the hair lock is thereof, a hair clamping tongue adapted to fit in then Wound on the curling clip, which is then said slot so as to be flush with the peripheral surface of said body, and part-cylindrical locking 20 fitted in position on the helmet. Fig. 5 shows a protector intended to receive means for said tongue adapted to surround said the curling clip. This protector includes two ' body so as to conform to the shape of the outer ñat parts, made of a light metal, aluminium for surface thereof. 2. For use with a permanent hair waving ap instance, one of which I2 is given the shape of a U, while the second one, I3, is pivoted to the paratus, a curling clip which comprises, in com 25 bination, a hollow tubular body open at one end, first part I2 at I4. The fiat element I2 is pro vided with two U-shaped ends I5 and I6, at right said body being provided with a longitudinal slot angles to the intermediate part thereof. One of extending over substantially the whole length these ends I5 is adapted to accommodate the end thereof, a hair clamping tongue movably carried I'I, with a slotted head I3, of the curling clip. by said body, so as to be able to move into and 30 The other part I6 is adapted to accommodate the away from said slot, said tongue being so shaped end I9 of the clip, fitted with a projection 20 of as to be able to fit in said slot so that its outer square section. Over parts I2 and I3, there is face is flush with the peripheral outer surface slipped a rubber sleeve 2|, slotted laterally so as of said body, and part-cylindrical locking means to facilitate its fitting into position. Part I3 is for said tongue adapted to surround said body so 35 provided, at its free end, on the outer side, with as to conform tightly to the shape of the outer a toothed notch 23, adapted to cooperate, when surface thereof. 3. For use in connection with a permanent hair said part I3 is applied against part I2, with a toothed cam 24, pivoted at 25, and actuated waving apparatus, a curling clip which comprises, , in combination, a hollow tubular body open at 40 through a lever 26. Square-shaped projection 20 is rigid with a one end, said body being provided with a longi ring 21 surrounded by a spring 28 one end of tudinal slot running over substantially the whole which is bent so `as to enter into a notch or slot length thereof, a hair clamping tongue movably 29 provided at the end of said ring.- Said ring carried by said body so as to be able to move into engages with a certain play into the hollow end 30 and away from said slot with a radial displace 45 ment, said tongue being shaped to fit in said slot of the curling clip. ' The fixation of the curling clip on the head so that its outer surface is flush with the periph is easy to understand: The- hair being engaged, eral outer surface of said body, and a part cylin as shown by Fig. 1, the protector is placed on the drical sleeve for locking said tongue, tightly fit head and branches I2 and I3 are brought into the ting around said body so as to be rotatable with 50 closed position, being locked in this position by respect thereto about the axis of said body. 4. For use in connection with a permanent hair the teeth of cam 24 engaging the teeth of notch 23. Then the curling clip is engaged into the waving apparatus, a curling clip which comprises, recesses of the two U-shaped ends I5 and I6, in in combination, a hollow tubular body open at one such manner that square-shaped projection 2li end, said body being provided with a longitudinal 55 slot running over substantially the whole length engages between the branches of U-shaped mem ber I5, while the other end I1 of the clip engages thereof, a hair clamping tongue movably carried between the branches of the U-shaped part I 6. by said body so as to be able to be moved radially The curling clip is turned by means of a key, into, and away from, said slot, said tongue being owing to the provision of slot I8, in the direction shaped to fit in said slot so that its outer surface 60 is flush with the peripheral outer surface of said of the arrow F of Fig. 8. Once all the curling clips have been placed body, and a semi-cylindrical part for locking said tongue in said slot, pivoted to said body about on the protectors, the whole'is enclosed in a suit an axis at right angles to the axis of said body, able helmet. In order to remove the curling clip, ring 21 is said part being shaped to conform to the shape 65 1 unlocked.
