Abstract: A hair washing apparatus and method of use of the same is provided. The apparatus includes a basin having an outer edge and an inner edge that defines an opening extending through the basin. A support structure is attached to the wash basin for vertically positioning the wash basin in a user desired position. The wash basin is formed of a generally rigid material such that when a person's head is positioned within the opening, the basin prevents the person's head from moving while the hair is being washed. The apparatus further includes a flexible tube having a lower end attached to the inner edge around the opening and an upper end through which the hair of the person may extend. The upper end engages the head below the hair such that when the hair is being washed, the wash water does not flow down the head and face of the person, but is directed into the wash basin.

Abstract: An apparatus for washing the hair of a person reclining on a chair comprising, a platform (12), a washbasin (10) mounted on the platform having a forward pointing lip (32) to receive the person's head or neck, and translation means (14, 16, 18) for moving the washbasin from a higher position (33) closer to the chair to a lower position more remote from the chair.
Abstract: In order to dress a subject's hair using the two first and second kinds of medicine solutions, a hood must be once taken off. Therefore, in order to apply the second medicine solution, the position of the hood must be adjusted so that the head is centrally located at the hood. This adjustment is troublesome for both the operator and subject. In order to obviate such inconvenience, a hair dressing device equipped with a hood D includes a fixed hood 71 and an opening/closing hood 72 into which said hood is divided, said opening/closing hood being openably attached to said fixed hood. In this case, said opening/closing hood 72 is opened/closed so that said fixed hood 71 is opened from above.
Abstract: A shampoo sink system that includes an adjustable base assembly including an anti-tip wall attachment structure that includes an exterior sink structure having a liner structure with an emptying trough hingedly attached thereto. The liner structure is emptied by pivoting the liner at the hinge.
Abstract: An apparatus for use when washing a person's hair includes a liquid catch member having an inward, head-surrounding portion with an opening for receiving a person's head. A ring-like support member is spaced outwardly from such portion. In the improvement, the catch member is fully flaccid, i.e., free of reinforcement or auxiliary support devices, between the portion and the support member. And the catch member has a tunnel-like passage receiving the support member therealong. The cross-sectional area of the passage is greater than that of the support member so that the latter can be readily threaded into and removed from the catch member. In more-specific embodiments, the head-surrounding portion includes a drawstring or elastic band, to fit all head sizes, and a disposable "one-time-use," person-contacting strip. A new method is also disclosed.

Abstract: A hair washing or shampooing device includes a pair of interlocking bowls and a drainage tank that eliminate the need for a conventional sink and which further eliminates the need for a client to bend his or her neck backward during a hair cleaning process. A secondary bowl surmounts a primary bowl and has a greater breadth than the primary bowl so that liquids splashing against the secondary bowl are directed into the primary bowl. A sump formed in the primary bowl is connected by a drainage hose to a drainage tank which may be manually emptied or emptied by a pump. A liquid-delivery hose extends through an opening formed in the secondary bowl, and a liquid-dispensing nozzle having a trigger is attached to the free end of the hose to facilitate the hair-cleaning process. The inner part of a cape is connected to the primary bowl and the outlying part of the cape overlies the client's shoulders to protect them from wetness. A belt member is tightened around the cape to further secure it into position.
Abstract: Disclosed herein is a hair treatment sink assembly and a method of collecting hair treatment materials during treatment operations. Further disclosed is a drip collection tray for collecting hair treatment materials during a hair treatment operation. The sink assembly is comprised of a basin with a drip tray installed beneath it to collect any hair treatment materials falling outside the basin. The method of collecting hair treatment materials during a hair treatment operation comprises the steps of resting a patron's head over a basin, applying hair treatment materials to the patron's head and catching the materials falling from the head in the basin and the materials falling outside the basin in a drip tray installed below the upper rim of the basin. The drip collection tray is comprised of a pan with surrounding side walls and a drain. The pan has portions that extend outside the envelope of the basin, when viewed in plan, on at least two side portions and the front portion of the basin.
Abstract: A hairdressing head support includes a base or sink mount for mounting the support directly to a hairdresser's sink.
