Back to the pool of crazy patents this week and this is one for those with that dreaded bald spot that needs to be covered...
OK, so I have to admit it. I am becoming follicularly challenged and anyone who knows me knows that hair is important to me. A couple of times recently I have managed to burn the top of my head while out in the sun, so I was delighted to find a patent that could solve all my problems.
Patent 4022227 was issued in 1977 and describes a method of concealing partial baldness. The abstract states: A method of styling hair to cover partial baldness using only the hair on a person’s head. The hair styling requires dividing a person’s hair into three sections and carefully folding one section over another.
What is goes on to describe is basically a comb over, but in multiple directions. It layers the hair and at each stage fixes it in place with hair spray. Nice try, but somehow I don’t think so. Maybe this is the technique that Donald Trump uses? Hope he pays royalties…
Anyone have any better suggestions for me?
