Plumtree, South San Francisco, Calif. Application January 27, 1945, Serial No. 574,923 3 Claims. 1 It is among the objects of my invention to provide a hair clip with a broad gripping sur- ' face which will hold a curl of hair securely in place while the hair dries and without danger of premature release. Another object is the pro vision of a hair clip which after its removal leaves the hair free of unsightly ridges in the (Cl. 132—46) 2 tween the pin and coil. A curl of hair will vary in thickness at different points across its width, so that two straight resilient members extending across the strands apply pressure only on the thicker portion, leaving much of the curl un secured. With my special coil construction, each separate turn yields more or less inde curl to which it was applied. Still another ob pendently to accommodate itself to the varying ject is to provide a hair clip which will accome thicknesses of the strands of hair in the curl modate itself to the varying thicknesses of por 10 held under the pin. Thus a perfect curl results tions of the underlying curl. with no objectionable ridges or irregularities. My invention possesses other objects and fea A very common failure of the so-called “bobble tures of value, some of which with the foregoing pin” is that its spring action is destroyed and will be set forth in the following description of its ability to hold a curl is lost if a curl should the invention.
