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
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

Another object of the invention is to provide hair is being waved, the pins are handily dis

horizontal section, although the shape is not of
material importance and the corners may be
rounded, and in fact the horizontal section might

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

character cf the materials employed, and such
changes may be made without departing from
the invention or sacrificing the advantages 50
