Note: Text based on automatic Optical Character Recognition processes. Please use the PDF version for legal matters

CLAIMS

1 . A hair band (12) adapted to be worn about the head of a user comprising:

an elongated stretchable foundation (20) which is both laterally and longitudinally expandable;

a plurality of hair-carrying strips (22, 71 ) attached to the foundation (20) in a bricklayered pattern thereby permitting the hair-carrying strips (22, 71 ) to move both laterally and longitudinally with the foundation expansion;

each of the hair-carrying strips (22, 71 ) carrying a plurality of hairs (21 ) adapted to fall beyond the head of the user wearing the hair band (12).

2. The hair band (12) as claimed in claim 1 , wherein the foundation has an upper edge (41 ) and a lower edge (43) and an intermediate segment, a first plurality of the hair-carrying strips (22, 71 ) are mounted to the upper edge (41 ) of the foundation (20) in a first spaced apart pattern, a second plurality of the hair-carrying strips (22, 71 ) are mounted to the foundation (20) in a second spaced apart longitudinally aligned pattern on the intermediate segment of the foundation (20), and a third plurality of the hair-carrying strips (22, 71 ) are mounted to the lower edge (43) of the foundation (20) in a third spaced apart pattern, and wherein respective intermediate spaces of the first, second and third spaced apart patterns are covered by hairs (21 ) falling there over due to the bricklayered pattern.

3. The hair band (12) as claimed in claim 1 or 2, wherein the foundation (20) is a net foundation (20) comprising a plurality of foundation cells (1 1 ).

4. The hair band (12) as claimed in any of the preceding claims, wherein each of the hair-carrying strips (22, 71 ) is sown to the foundation (10).

5. The hair band (12) as claimed in any of the preceding claims, wherein the hair-carrying strips (22, 71 ) are selected from hair wefts (22) and no-looped-hair hairband strips (71 ).

6. The hair band (12) as claimed in claim 5, wherein the no-looped-hair hairband strips (71 ) include no-looped-hair hairband strips (71 ) having embedded in a glass silk-polyurethane matrix a plurality of substantially parallel hairs (21 ) with cuticular scales laying in the same direction to avoid cuticular scale interference between adjacent hairs (21 ) which fall beyond the head of the user wearing the hair band (12) .

7. The hair band (12) as claimed in claim 5 or 6, wherein the no-looped-hair hairband strips (71 ) include no-looped-hair hairband strips (71 ) comprising a strip-shaped carrier structure and several hairs (21 ) which extend from the carrier structure in a main direction running perpendicular to a direction of main extension of the carrier structure, wherein ends of the hairs (21 ) fixed to the carrier structure are stitched through an elastic foil forming the outer layer of the carrier structure, wherein the ends are fixed to the carrier structure by gluing them to the back side of the foil only, and wherein, at the back side of the foil, the hairs run in the main direction running perpendicular to the direction of main extension of the carrier structure.

8. The hair band (12) as claimed in any of the preceding claims, comprising

a filament (16) attached to the foundation (20) such that both the filament and the foundation are adapted to extend about the head of the user; and

an elastic member (14) attached between the foundation (20) and the filament (16) which is adapted to establish a tension fit about the head of the user.

9. The hair band (12) as claimed in claim 8, including two elastic members (14), one at either end of the filament (16) and each elastic member (14) connected between the filament (16) and the foundation (20).

10. The hair band (12) as claimed in claim 9, including respective cloth tunnels (30) for parts of the elastic elements (14) at the respective interfaces between the elastic members (14) and the foundation (20).
