Description

BACKGROUND

The present invention is directed to a hair extension drying apparatus that is used to work on curtain style extensions, clip-on extensions, and DEYSI FUENTES extensions.

The inventor of the present invention is a hair stylist that specializes in preparing hair extensions that are placed on humans.

One of the difficulties of working with extensions is that they must be secured to a holding means when straightening, coloring or cutting the extensions.

In practice, some stylists have other stylist secure the extensions when working on them: this is hazardous to the person holding the extension, for they are often burnt or are forced to inhale chemicals used to treat the extensions.

Other stylists place the extensions on clips that are attached to other objects. Often, the clips snap off the objects and the extensions fall to a surface, thereby causing the extensions to be blemished or damaged.

For the foregoing reasons, there is a need for a hair extension drying apparatus that can be used to straighten, color or cut hair extensions.

SUMMARY

The present invention is a hair extension drying apparatus that is used to straighten, color or cut hair extensions.

A hair extension drying apparatus comprises of a pedestal having a left, a right, a front, and a rear side. A column that is attached to the pedestal. A platform that that has a front and a rear side, the front side of the platform defines a vertical wall has a top and a bottom side, the top side of the vertical wall has a swivel, and the platform is attached to the column. A 3d L-shaped top that attaches to the swivel so that the vertical wall of the platform is flush with the 3d L-shaped top, the L-shaped top has a top and a bottom, the bottom side of the 3d L-shaped top defines a centrally positioned vertical wall that defines an aperture. A pair of springs, each spring is secured to the platform and the 3d L-shaped top so that the springs are aligned parallel to the front side of the platform, the springs are positioned at a location that is adjacent to the rear side of the platform. A line that is attached to the aperture of the centrally positioned vertical wall. And, a pedal that has a pedal swivel that is secured to the base and that attaches to the line so that pedal is always in an upward position toward the rear side of the pedestal.

The present invention is used by placing a hair extension between the vertical wall of the platform and the 3d L-shape top. The springs between the platform and the 3d L-shaped top apply the pressure required to secure the hair extension within the vertical wall and 3d L-shaped top. The pressure is released by applying pressure to the pedal and thereby lifting the front side of the 3d L-shaped off the vertical wall of the platform. When the pressure is released, the hair extension can be placed or removed from the hair extension apparatus.

An object of the present invention is to provide a hair extension apparatus that will not require two people to work on the hair extension when straightening, coloring or cutting the hair extension.

Another object of the present invention is to provide a hair extension apparatus that will hold a hair extension in place when being worked on and that is easily secured and removed from the apparatus.

An further object of the present invention is to provide a hair extension apparatus that will speed up the preparation of a hair extension prior to placing it on a human.

The drying apparatus 100 comprises a pedestal 10 having a left 10a, a right 10b, a front 10c, and a rear side 10d. A column 20 that is attached to the pedestal 10. A platform 30 that that has a front 30a and a rear side 30b. The front side 30a of the platform defines a vertical wall 30c has a top and a bottom side (not shown in figures). The top side of the vertical wall has a swivel 32. The platform 30 is attached to the column 20. A 3d L-shaped top 40 that attaches to the swivel 32 so that the vertical wall of the platform 30c is flush with the 3d L-shaped top 40 and the L-shaped top 40 has a top 40a and a bottom 40b. The bottom side of the 3d L-shaped top 40b defines a centrally positioned vertical wall 42 that defines an aperture. A pair of springs 50 and each spring 50 is secured to the platform 30 and the 3d L-shaped top 40 so that the springs 50 are aligned parallel to the front side of the platform 30a. The springs 50 are positioned at a location that is adjacent to the rear side of the platform 30b. A line 60 that is attached to the aperture of the centrally positioned vertical wall 42. And, a pedal 70 that has a pedal swivel (not shown in figures) that is secured to the base 10 and that attaches to the line 60 so that pedal 70 is always in an upward position toward the rear side of the pedestal.

In an embodiment of the present invention, the column 20 measures at least 48 inches and the front side of the platform measures at least 12 inches.

In another embodiment of the present invention, the pedestal 10 is made of metal and the front side 10c and the rear side 10d of the pedestal measures at least 20 inches and the left side 10a and the right side 10b measures at least 18 inches.

An advantage of the present invention is that it provides a hair extension apparatus that does not require two people to work on a hair extension when straightening, coloring or cutting the hair extension.

Another advantage of the present invention is that it provides a hair extension apparatus that holds a hair extension in place when being worked on and that is easily secured and removed from the apparatus.

An further advantage of the present invention is that it provides a hair extension apparatus that speeds up the preparation of a hair extension prior to placing it on a human.

While the inventor's above description contains many specificities, these should not be construed as limitations on the scope, but rather as an exemplification of several preferred embodiments thereof. Accordingly, the scope should not be determined by the embodiments illustrated, but by the appended claims and their legal equivalents.
