Y. Application January 28, 1937, Serial No.v 122,183 1 Claim. (Cl. 223-109) This invention relates to devices adapted to support hairpins and particularly to improve ments which facilitate the handling of hairpins by an operator during the setting of waves on 5 the human head. In the practice of hair waving the operator, in setting the waves in the hair, employs a mul tiplicity of pins. These are usually deposited in a tray, carried in a pocket, and sometimes dis 10 posed in the mouth of the operator. The pins are likely to become entangled, or dimcult to pick up rapidly, and the operation is frequently delayed because the operator does not have a supply of pins in handy and convenient arrange 1B ment. . ' Itis the object of the present invention to pro -vide a simple and efiicient support for hairpins upon the shoulder, as it will rest readily on the legs ‘I which are formed at the ends of the form 5. Consequently. the device may be placed upon a table, chair-arm, or other suitable support. Resting upon the upper surface 8 of the form 5 5 is a layer 9 of wool, hair, Kapok, or other suit able iibrous material loosely arranged <but suf iiciently dense to afford a support for the lower ends of the pins I0 as the latter -are thrustthrough the meshes of a wire screen Il which is disposed 10 above the layer El and secured to extensions l2 of the form 5. The lower ends of the pins Ill may be inserted readily through the meshes of the wire screen, and the fibrous material below, holds the pins in substantially vertical posi- l5 tion or in any other position in which they may be inserted by the operator. Rows of pins may be disposed thus, so that their upper ends are ranged so that they can be picked up rapidly byy free and the pins may be picked up readily by 20 an operator to thereby facilitate the use 'of the the operator as they are needed. If the `device 20 is mounted upon the shoulder of the person whose pins and the waving operation. Another object of the invention is to provide hair is being waved, the pins are handily dis a support for hairpins which may be disposed posed for access by the operator so that the wav in a convenient position on the shoulder of the ing operation is materially facilitated. 'I'he device may be suitably covered.

' Referring to the drawing, 5 able form which may be of any which is adapted to retain its 40 the same time relatively light indicates a suit suitable material shape and is at in weight. The form may be conveniently made of pressed cork, but wood may be employed, or the form may be made of cardboard, of molded resinous mate rial, or in fact of any of the numerous available 45 materials which are adapted to be shaped read ily. The form 5 is preferably rectangular in horizontal section, although the shape is not of material importance and the corners may be rounded, and in fact the horizontal section might 50 be elliptical or of any other desired shape. 'I'he lower surface of the form 5 is cut away as in dicated at 6. to provide a rounded contour of dimensions and shape adapted to fit upon the , >shoulder of a person as indicated in Fig. 1 of the ,55 drawing. The device need not, however, be used conveniently the cover I3 may be of the same 35v material, thus giving to the device a pleasing appearance. However, if desired, the pile fabric may be used only at the point of contact with the shoulder. The pile of the fabric prevents slipping when the device is in position on the 40 shoulder. ‘ ~ As will be readily apparent from the foregoing description, the invention affords a simple and satisfactory support for hairpins, which has nu merous advantages. The construction and ar- 45 rangement of the parts are susceptible to numer» ous changes, particularly with reference to the character cf the materials employed, and such changes may be made without departing from the invention or sacrificing the advantages 50 thereof. I claim: A device for holding hairpins, or the like', com prising a shape-retaining form recessed at its upper and lower surfaces, the recess of the up- 55 2 2,126,015 1 per surface forming upstanding marginal edges and a space for penetrable material, the recess at the lower surface being of such shape as to conform generally to the upper contour of a per son’s shoulder, a filling of penetrabie material in said upper recess, va wire fabric overlying said ñlling and said upstanding marginal edgesl and a pile fabric covering for the bottom, sides and marginal edges of said form, said fabric at the upper side overlying the edges of said wire fabric, and the edges of the wire fabric and the edges of said fabric covering being secured to said mar ginal edges of the form.
