BY DAISY F LQFORTUNE 2,134,878 Patented Nov. 1, 1938 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE 2,134,878 HAIR WAVING DEVICE Daisy F. La Fortune, Detroit, Mich. Application April 16, 1937, Serial No. 137,311 3 Claims. (Cl. 132-38) This invention relates to hair waving devices, having for its principal object the provision of simple and inexpensive apparatus by means of which, without the use of heat, quick and easy f, waving of hair on the head may be effected. A further object is the provision of a simple device of the character indicated, of light and flexible nature, which may be worn in the form of a net while the wave is being set, without in “, terfering with the freedom of movement of the user. Still another object is the provision of such a device which is usable without the assistance of a skilled operator, and by means of which a 15 woman may easily wave her own hair. Other objects and advantages will be apparent from the following description, wherein refer ence is made to the accompanying drawings il lustrating a preferred embodiment of my inven 00 tion and wherein similar reference numerals des ignate similar parts throughout the several views. in the drawings: Figure 1 shows a side view of the device as applied to the head and in use. ‘,5 Figure 2 is a top plan View. Figure 3 is an enlarged detail view of a por tion of the webbing, showing a pair of the slid able comb elements used for moving the hair to and holding it in wavular arrangement, such 30 comb elements being shown in plan. Figures 4 and 5 are sectional views taken sub stantially on the lines 4-4 and 5—-5 of Figure 3, looking in the direction of the arrows, and Figure 6 is a perspective view of apart of the 35 supporting webbing ‘and of one of the slidable comb elements, showing the fastening means by which the comb element may be locked in place, to hold an entire row of such comb elements against movement, while the wave is in the proc 40 ess of being set. Referring now to the drawings, it will be seen from an inspection of Figures 1 and 2 that the body or framework of the device comprises a net-like webbing, formed of ?exible straps of 45 natural or artificial‘ leather or the like, so ar ranged. as to cross each other substantially at right angles, and comprising a series of arched or substantially vertical straps as 10 arranged to extend up the sides of the head, and cooperating 50 substantially horizontal, strips l2 arranged in parallel rows and adapted to extend around the continued to form a tie beneath the chin, as shown in Figure 1. It will be apparent that the straps l2 might be inclined at any desired an gle, either initially, or by application of the web bing to the head at a desired angle. The straps are preferably formed of non elastic material, and upon certain of the straps, here shown as the straps l2, are arranged a series of slidable waving comb members, generally des ignated l5, each having a plurality of teeth ex- 10 tending inwardly toward the head. Each such comb member may be curved substantially to conform to the portion of the head to which it is to be applied, and to the curvature of the strap portion upon which it is slidably ?tted. 15 The construction of the comb members is clearly shown in Figures 3, 4, 5 and 6. Each comb is formed of an elongated strip of sheet metal, which may conform in width to the strap upon which it is slidably ?tted. Along its sides, 20 each comb carries a series of internal down-bent teeth I3. At either end, the metal of which the comb is formed is folded back over the top of its elongated flat body, as at I4, and upwardly looped arms 16, integral with such folded pore 25 tion, loosely encircle the strap to slidably hold the comb thereupon. Each comb preferably bridges one of the vertical straps as In, and a handle portion as I8 is arched over such vertical strap and secured at either end to the comb, as 30 by being folded over the securing loop portions l6. Such arched handle portions will be seen to limit sliding movement and enable convenient manual manipulation of the combs. The series or train of combs carried by each 35 of the head-encircling straps I2 is shorter than the strap by which it is carried, so that the whole series of combs may be slid along its support ing strap a distance in accordance with the am plitude of the desired wave to be imparted to the 40 hair. The comb at each end of each such series or train carries a snap fastener portion 20, a ?exible tab as 22 carried by the vertical strap ll being provided with a cooperating snap fas tener portion as 2|. By means of such snap 45 fasteners, when any horizontal series of combs has been moved to one extremity of its move ment, it may be locked in place against sliding back in the opposite direction. At least the forward ones of the vertical straps 50 - I 0, H are divided centrally, at the crown of the head. i The three vertical straps nearest the front of the net serve as holding means, extend head, the two ends being securable together by snap fasteners as 25. The central strap 26 which ing downwardly and joining one another, while 55 one, shown as the central strap of the three, is ‘passes from front to back over the crown of the head is also formed in two parallel and overlying 55 2 2,134,878 sections, at least in the area in which the vertical straps are separable, one of such separate sec~ tions of strap 26 being secured to the end of the vertical straps, in the manner described, al lowing for convenient removal and application of the webbing with respect to the head. In using the device, alternate rows of sliding comb elements are moved to opposite ends of the straps by which they are carried before the web— bing is fastened upon the head. After it is fas tened in place in the manner shown in Figure 1, the combs being drawn into as ?rm engagement with the hair as is practicable, it is merely neces sary to slide each row of combs to the opposite extreme of its movement, and there secure it by means of snap fasteners 20-21, to impart a very effective wave to the hair. Preferably the hair is wetted before the device is applied, and the device is left in place while the hair is drying, in order that the hair may set in the waved con dition in which it is trained by the combs. After the hair has dried and the Wave set, it is only necessary to open the snap fasteners 25 and untie the chin straps, to open the webbing so that the combs may be removed in a manner having the least disturbing effect upon the hair. A take-up buckle 28 may be incorporated in the front vertical strap to allow for adjustment 30 of the webbing to ?t the head of the user. While it will be apparent that the illustrated embodiments of my invention herein disclosed are well calculated to adequately ful?ll the objects and advantages primarily stated, it is to be un derstood that the invention is susceptible to variation, modi?cation and change within the spirit and scope of the subjoined claims. What I claim is: 1. A hair waving device comprising a net~like flexible webbing adapted to be detachably se cured to the head and incorporating a plurality of substantially parallel strands, a series of combs slidably carried by each of said parallel strands, 10 each comb comprising a relatively rigid member having a body of substantial width and a plu rality of teeth projecting inwardly therefrom and spaced from each other laterally across the width of said comb body and adapted to engage the hair of the head of the user, whereby by sliding the comb elements along the strands, the hair may be trained in desired directions. 2. Hair waving means as set forth in claim 1 including means for fastening at least the rear- __ most comb of each of said series of combs to said webbing, to prevent return movement of the combs of such series after they have been slid to desired position. 3. Means as set forth in claim 1 in which said combs comprise elongated sheet metal elements having down-bent tooth-de?ning edges spaced laterally from each other a distance at least equal to the width of said strands, and looped securing portions slidably securing each comb to its sup porting strand.
