This invention relates to improvements in hair
combs and the object thereof is to provide a hair
comb which will impart waves or curls to the hair
strands with which it is brought into engage
It is another object of the invention to provide

upper ends joined with the body member I, as

opposite end portions of the movable member 3.
The movable comb member is provided with a
laterally directed pin 9 having a headed outer
end 10, the shank of the pin being disposed in a
gated internal chamber, there being a movable
