Title (EN) HAIRSTYLING METHOD AND DEVICE
(FR) METHODE ET APPAREIL DE COIFFURE
Abstract:
(EN) A method for facilitated precision cutting of hair by one handed sectioning, combing and locking of hair into position for cutting and a device for effecting the method. The device (1) comprises a combination of comb (10), sectioning (20) and locking (21) members arranged such that it provides for the rapid one handed sequential hairstyling functions of sectioning, combing and uniform locking of hair (31) in position for cutting, clipping or trimming without the necessity of constant comb and finger manipulation and movement. A short comb (10), adapted to comb a straight portion of hair (31), is combined with a thin tapered elongated sectioning and locking bar (21). The comb (10) and bar (21) are hingedly connected (18, 28, 38) and are movable relative to each other by use of a single hand (37) and finger manipulation.
(FR) Méthode et appareil pour améliorer la précision de la coupe de cheveux effectuée d'une seule main au cours de laquelle on coupe, peigne, et place les cheveux en position d'une seule main en vue de la coupe. Cet appareil (1) est composé d'éléments qui peignent (10), sectionnent (20) et maintiennent les cheveux en position (21), concus de sorte à faciliter les opérations consécutives sus-mentionnées effectuées d'une seule main sur les cheveux (31) lors de la coupe. Grâce à cet appareil, on évite d'avoir constamment à manipuler le peigne et à bouger les doigts. Un peigne court (10) conçu pour permettre de peigner une portion droite de cheveux (31) est combiné avec une barrette oblongue effilée servant à couper et à maintenir les cheveux (21) en place. Le peigne (10) et la barrette (21) sont reliés par des charnières (18, 28, 38) et peuvent se déplacer réciproquement en réaction à une manipulation accomplie d'une seule main (37).
