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
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.
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.
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
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
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.
