2 Claims. (01. 132-48) This invention relates to a hairdress beautifier, and specifically to means worn in fixed relation to the head for supporting selectively positionable hair pieces, for enhancing the beauty or attractiveness of the wearer.
One of the objects of the invention is to provide a hairdress beautifier employing a hair net adapted to be applied in conforming relation to the head, having a surrounding band at its lower edge provided with a circumferential series of fasteners alfording selective stations at which to attach one or more hair pieces provided with complementary fasteners.
Another object of the invention is to provide means adapted to be fixedly related to the head,
and serving as an anchorage for a hair piece, the latter being detachably secured to said anchoring means.
Other objects of the invention will appear as the following description of a practical embodiment thereof proceeds.
In the drawing which accompanies and forms a part of the following specification, and throughout the figures of which the same reference characters denote identical parts:
Figure l is a view in perspective of a hairdress beautifier embodying the principles of the invention;
Figure 2 is a perspective view on an enlarged scal of one of the hair pieces shown in Fig- Figure 3 is a perspective view of a comb with attachable hair piece, the latter being shown separated from the comb for clarity of illustration;
Figure 4 is a perspective view of a clip equipped with a hair piece;
Figure 5 is a perspective view of a bobbie pin furnished with a lock of hair;
Figure 6 is a perspective view of a headband adapted to be tied about the head, in combination with a hair piece.
Referrin now in detail to Figures 1 and 2, the numeral I represents a hair net which may be of the conventional invisible type, or more sturdy if desired, which conforms to the shape of the head enveloping the natural hair. To the lower peripheral edge of the hair net I a circumferential band 2 is secured, this band being preferably of suitable textile material, with at least one insert of elastic webbing 3, so that the band constrictively engages the head, thereby anchoring the band and the hair net fixedly in place. At intervals the inelastic portion of the band 2 is provided with associated pairs or sets of fasteners 4. In the form of the invention used by way of example, these fasteners are elements of conventional snap fasteners, although the concept of the invention is sufiiciently broad to include any type of fastening means. Associated with the band 2 are on or more hair pieces 5. These consist of a suitable arrangement of hair, preferably natural, designated as 6 in Figures 1 and 2, secured to a base or backing 1, the latter carrying pairs or sets of snap fastener elements 8 complementary to the fastener elements on the band 2. The spacing of the snap fastenerv elements on the band and on the hair piec is such as to permit selective positioning and securing of the hair piece or hair pieces circumferentially of the band 2.
The hairdress beautifier as shown and described is particularly desirable when the natural hair has been cut short as the result of illness, or where the wearer of the beautifier has one of the popular short hair styles and it is desired for some especial occasion to display longer hair, under which circumstances the natural hair is too short to support a comb. The beautifier is also a useful adjunct in theatrical costuming.
With the beautifier in place, as shown in Figure 1, the hair net and band may be effectively concealed by any type of hair covering, such as a bandanna, shawl, turban, or hat.
The modifications shown in Figures 3, 4, 5
and 6 distinguish from the invention shown in Figures 1 and 2 in that the hair piece is not adjustable relative to the support Dr anchoring means, but that the support itself is adjustable with respect to the head. The forms shown in Figures 3, 4 and 5 are particularly adaptable for use where the natural hair is long enough to support the comb.
In Figure 3 the comb 9 is provided with fastener elements I0, and the hair piece II with the complementary fastener elements I2. The hair piece II is simply suggestive of anytype of hair piece which may be interchangeably substituted therefor. This comb may be placed in any desired position relative to the head, and an appropriate hair piece selected to suit the location.
Figure 4 shows a clip I3, carrying the hair piece I4, and having a hasp l5 designed to be buried in the hair and snapped over the knob I6.
Figure 5 illustrates a. modified form of beautifier in which the hair piece IS, in this instance representing a lock of wavy hair, is attached to the bobbie pin [1 adjacent the bight thereof.
Figure 6 illustrates a headband l8 which can 3 be iised either with short or long natural hair, and comprises a flexible supporting section 19, to which the hair piece 20 is attached, and ribbon streamers 2| which are adapted to be tied together to bind the headband constrictively about the head.
It is to be understood that the selectively interchangeable hair pieces may be of different color oro'f differentform and'cmrfiguration without departing 'from the spirit of theinvention, and that the occasions for the use of the hairdress beautifier referred to in the specification are merely a few examples of afg reat mam-circumstances and occasions in whiht-hbeaxitfiertmay be usefully employed.
While I have in the above description dfselosed what I believe to be a practical embodiment-oi 4 veloping net, 8. band of substantial material bar-- dering said net adapted to extend circumferentially about the head, sets of fastening elements displaced circumferentially about said band, and hair pieces having complementary sets of fastening elements adapted to be selectively secured, singly or in plurality to said band at various circumferential positions.
