Abstract: By providing a dual cutting head module which is constructed for precisely cutting beards and mustaches in a wide variety of alternate widths using one cutting blade, while also trimming and cutting nose/ear hair using a second cutting blade, an easily employed, dependable, reliable, multi-purpose beard/mustache and nose/ear hair trimming system is achieved. In one embodiment, the dual cutting blade head member is constructed for removable mounted engagement with the support base, as well as being arcuately pivotable relative thereto, enabling either of the two desired cutting blades to be moved into the operating position whenever desired by the user. In an alternate embodiment, the dual cutting blade head member is mounted to the support base for pivotable movement only, enabling the desired multi-purpose use and operation to be provided, with reduced simplicity in manufacturing.
Abstract: By providing a separate and independent hair trimmer or trimming assembly which is incorporated into a shaver system and is controllably movable directly into a variety of alternate positions for providing enhanced cutting of hair fibers, a substantially improved, close and comfortable shaving system is obtained which effectively cuts both short hair and long hair. By employing a single, multi-positionable, switch member which cooperates with a movement control system incorporated into a trimmer assembly, user control is provided for altering the position of the trimmer assembly for placing the trimmer assembly directly and any precisely desired orientation or location. In addition, in the preferred embodiment, the trimmer assembly incorporates a pair of specially constructed cutting elements formed thereon for providing enhanced cutting and/or trimming capabilities in a wide variety of alternate operations.
Abstract: By providing a rotatable wheel mounted in cooperating engagement with a longitudinally movable arm or slide member, an easily employed, dependable, and reliable movable comb control system is achieved, enabling users to controllably move the comb member on a hair trimmer any desired distance. In the present invention, cam slots are formed in the wheel with the slots positioned for controlled engagement with cam pins formed on the movable arm or slider. By employing this construction, rotational movement of the wheel causes controlled movement of the cam pins which results in the desired longitudinal movement of the arm/slider. By securing the elongated arm/slider to the comb element, either directly or through an interconnecting plate, the longitudinal movement of the arm/slider causes the comb element to move simultaneously therewith.
Abstract: By employing the teaching of the present invention, all of the difficulties and drawbacks found in conventional prior art hair curlers/rollers are eliminated. By providing a fully integrated, elongated body member which comprises an elongated central section having a generally rod-like construction, an enlarged loop or eyelet formed at one end of the central section, and elongated continuous, multi-segmented finger member formed at the opposed end of the central section, an easily used, one-piece, clipless hair curler/roller is provided. In addition, all portions of the hair roller/curler are inherently flexible, enabling the central section to be used for receiving the user's hair is wound thereon in the desired manner, and once completely wound thereon, the hair fibers are quickly and easily held in place by flexibly moving the multi-segmented finger member into the loop or eyelet until the hair fibers are locked in place about the central section thereof.
