11 Claims.
(Cl. 132—49)
My invention relates to a cap for retaining the
hair in place during sleep and more speci?cally
relates to a cap which engages the hair ad
jacent the hair line of the head to prevent move
5 ment of the cap on the head with resultant dis
placement of the coiffure.
As is well known, many women have their hair
waved in plain or elaborate coiifures. These
coiifures are costly and are ordinarily extensively
10 disarranged during sleep, whereupon the desired
effect of the coiifure is lost. Since hair arrange
ment is costly, most women desire that their hair
arrangement be maintained for as long as pos
I have devised a novel .coiffure retaining cap
by means of which coiffure adornment may be
retained during sleep and which entails no dis
comfort during use. I have overcome the pri
mary difficulty in such caps by maintaining the
cap upon the head by various means for engag
ing the hair along the hair line in such a manner
as to cause no discomfort to the wearer. As will
be described more fully hereinafter, I provide
along the rim of the cap certain means, as for 10
example a series of laces and openings, by means
of which the hair can be engaged and the cap
retained upon the head without disarrangement
of the coiffure and without discomfort. I have

Various expedients have been suggested to over
placed adjacent lace as for example in the form
come this and devices have been suggested for
maintaining the hair net on the head during
30 sleep. The patent to Burke No. 1,725,251 is illus
trative of the means that have been employed to
keep the retaining cap over the hair and on the
head at night. Therein is disclosed ‘the idea of a
band around the lower edge of the cap with a
35 buckle for tightening the band to secure sufficient
tension to maintain the cap on the head.
Along this same line various others have sug
gested tie strings and bands by means of which
the lower rim of the cap mamy be suf?ciently
40 tightened to maintain the cap on the head.
Such devices, however, have been found to
lack the desirable wide commercial acceptance
because of the elements of discomfort attendant
upon their use. The primary discomfort of these
‘15 retention means lies in the fact that a tight band
about the head is decidedly uncomfortable during
sleep, and unless sufficient tightness is obtained,
the cap cannot be retained upon the head. Fur
ther, the buckle or clasp by which the band is
50' tightened is de?nitely uncomfortable and when
the wearer lies upon this buckle decided discom
fort results. Since it is highly desirable that ex
treme comfort be had for restful sleep, these re
taining caps of the prior art have failed in con
55' sumer acceptance.
of a bow.
The openings may be stitched, cut or stapled 30
in the cloth with metal inserts. The openings
may be of any desired nature.
If desired, a lace may be led through a series
of openings around the rim of the cap in a man
ner to engage alternate sections of hair around
the head. Further, clasps, as for example soft
or flexible clasps, may be employed to engage
the hair in the area under the rim of the cap.
I call my cap the hair-stay cap.

It is a further object of my invention to provide
a series of single openings and laces about the
rim of a retaining cap to engage the hair.
It is a further object of my invention to pro
vide a retaining cap, a series of openings about
the rim thereof, and a single lace to engage these
openings and the hair beneath for maintaining
the retaining cap on the head.
In the drawings, Figure 1 represents a perspec
10 tive of a preferred form of my invention.
Figure 2 shows the cut-away portion of the cap
upon the wearer’s head and the operation of the
laces in engaging the hair.
Figure 3 shows a side view of a modi?cation
15 of my invention in which a lace extends laterally
my cap in which, along the rim area I provide
patch 24 in which is located an opening 25. Ad
jacent this opening is a lace 28 secured to the
patch 24 by the stitching 27:‘.
In Figure 5, I provide a modi?cation of my
retaining cap- in which the rim portions 28 and
29 are separated to provide an open area 39.
Ad
jacent the ends of these rim portions 28 and 29,
I provide laces 3i and 32 secured to the rim por
tions 28 and 29 by the stitching 33 and 34. In 10
this modi?cation the laces are looped in the hair
in the exposed portion and then engaged to
gether to maintain the cap engaged with the hair
on the head.
The forms of my invention which I have de
along the rim of the cap and in and out of the scribed show various ways in which the retaining 15
openings engaging the hair beneath the openings cap may be formed. As I have stated, a feature

Figure 4 is a side view of a cut-away section
of a modi?cation of my invention in which a
single lace and opening are employed.
,
Figure 5 is a side view of a further modi?cation
of my invention which'shows how the hair may
be engaged directly without the use of an open
25 mg.
Referring now more speci?cally to the draw
ings, in Figure 1, I show a retaining cap I with
a net portion 2 forming the body of the cap and
a rim 3 about the lower periphery of the cap.
30
In the rim 3 are openings 4 and 5 which may be
of any desired nature. Af?xed below and ‘adja
cent these openings are laces 6 ‘and 7. Around
the rim of the cap are other laces and openings
such as the adjacent openings 8 and 9 and the co
acting laces l0 and II. The laces are secured to
the rim 3 by the securing means, as for example
stitching, I2. At the rear of the cap, there may
be if desired an elastic portion I3 to provide snug
ness. If desired, a draw string may be used in
40 the back of the cap instead of the elastic 53.
Such a draw string ?ts the cap snugly on the
head and enables it to be removed without diffi
culty.
In Figure 2, there is shown the laces H) and
45 Il engaging locks of hair [5 and H5. The lac-e
as it comes up in the rear of the band 3 is shown
by dotted lines. After the lace engages the lock
of hair it is drawn in rather close engagement
therewith and two adjacent laces ill and ii may
50 be engaged together in the form of a bow to retain
the lace in ?rm engagement with the hair. When
this operation is effected in a plurality of locations
about the periphery of the cap, an engagement is
obtained which aifords no discomfort and by
means of which the cap may be securely main
tained upon the head during sleep. The engage
ment of the lace with the hair does not afford any
discomfort since no particular tension is exerted
60
upon the roots of the hair.
In Figure 3, I have shown a modi?cation of my
invention in which I provide a series of openings
!8 along therim [9 of the cap. Alace 20 is se
cured to the rim at its base by the stitching 2!.
As can be seen in the cut-away section the lace
65 29 engages alternate areas of the hair 22 around
the head. In this modi?cation one lace is used
on either side of the head, the laces being joined
at the back in a satisfactory knot.
Alternatively as a means for engaging the hair,
70 single openings at spaced intervals around the
base of the cap may be employed. Two adjacent
strings or laces may be engaged with the hair as
described above and both led through the open
ing and tied together externally.
75
In Figure 4, I have shown a modi?cation of
of my invention lies in the engagement of the
hair by the cap to retain the cap upon the head.
In lieu of the laces I provide, other means may 20
be substituted within the purview of my inven
tion for accomplishing the same result. Instead
of employing knots to engage the laces, suitable
engaging means may be provided at the ends
thereof. Various arrangements of the laces and
the openings may be used. The material of the
net portion of the cap may be either mesh or
solid fabric of any material desired. Similarly,
the band may be formed of any manner of fabric
such as silk, wool, rayon, etc. and as shown in 3.0.
the modi?cations, the band may be continuous
or spaced. It is understood that the primary
feature of this invention resides in the means for
retaining the cap on the head. In addition to
using these means for retaining the cap on the 35
head for a cap for keeping the hair in place,
the retaining means of my invention may also
be employed to maintain upon the head caps of
any nature, such as skull caps or small caps that
of themselves are insecure on the head.
As I have indicated, I have shown a number
of modi?cations of my cap and I have indicated
other suggested modi?cations. I do not wish to
be limited to the preferred forms of my invention
which I have exampled, but only by the appended 45
claims.
I claim:
_
1. A cap comprising a body portion and means
comprising ?exible laces adapted to be interlaced
with the hair to position the cap on the head.
2. A cap comprising a body portion, a rim and
non-rigid flexible means secured to a portion of
