The plate member 2 has a central portion 4 that matches the box-shaped member 3 and two lateral protruding end parts 5 in each of which a slot 6 it is obtained, the slots 6 having shapes and sizes corresponding to the width and thickness of the belt. The box-shaped member 3 has a cavity 7 provided with an upper opening 8, and preferably also with a lower opening (not shown in the drawings) . The lower opening prevents the accumulation of dirt inside the box-shaped member 3. The belt is intended to be worn at the waist, after introducing the loop 1 on the former through the slots 6 at the side protruding end parts 5. The side protruding end parts 5 of the loop 1 are chamfered at the edges of their ends to better adapt to the belt.

The plurality of tool holders it is designed to cover every need of the hairdresser when he must have the tools at hand. These are neither represented in the drawings nor described. Each tool-holder has a protruding arm part 9 suitable to be inserted in the upper opening 8 of said cavity 7. The arm part 9 it is substantially a plate having sizes which correspond and match with the sizes of the cavity 7, and further has an upper end 10 which abuts out of the cavity 7. Each tool holder has a bevelled portion, having a substantially upside down U-shaped cross section. The chamfered portion it is spaced from the arm part 9 by the thickness of the wall of the box shaped member 3, so that each tool-holder rests reliably in a vertical position and parallel to said loop 1. All tool-holders have general cavities with longitudinal axis parallel to the front wall of the box-shaped member 3.

In the following a description of some tool holders for the most commonly used tools for a hairdresser will be given. All tool holders can be made of any suitable material, such as plastic or metallic material.

The second cylinder 165 has ventilation slots 166.

With reference to figures 29 to 32, several wall supporting members are shown where to store the tool holders. More in detail, the figures represent a wall supporting member 19 for a single tool holder (the latter not being illustrated in the figures) . The member has four fixing holes 190, in which there is a box shaped member 191, where it is possible to store all the preceding tool holders by placing the arms 9 of the described tool holders in the appropriate insertion slider 192, up to the final upper part 10 thereof.

With reference now to figures 33 to 36, a wall supporting member 20 it is shown for a pair of tool holders (the latter not being shown in the figures) . The member has four fixing holes 200, in which there are two box-shaped members 201, where it is possible to store a pair of tool holder of the plurality of tool holders by placing the arms 9 of the respective tool holders in the appropriate insertion slider 202, up to the final upper part 10 thereof .

With reference to figures 37 to 40, a wall supporting member 21 it is represented in them for three tool holders (the latter not being shown in the figures) . The supporting member has four fixing holes 210, in which there are three box-shaped members 211, where it is possible to store respective tool holders by placing the arms 9 of the respective tool holders in the appropriate insertion slider 212, up to the final upper part 10 thereof.

With reference to figures 41 to 44, a set 17 of open- bottomed bowl-holders 170 and combs, brushes and sprayer 171 holder with a closed-bottom it is shown. The assembly 17 of bowl-holder 170 and brush, combs and sprayer 171 holder has a bilobed structure 172 radiused with a chamfered portion 173 at the upper end 10 of the protruding member 9. The bilobed structure 172 has a first cylinder 174 for receiving a bowl and a second cylinder 175 of smaller diameter, but of greater length than the first cylinder 174, for receiving brush, comb or sprayer.

With reference now to Figures 45 to 48, there is shown a tool holder referring by way of non-limiting example to a hairdryer holder according to a second embodiment of the present invention. For the sake of clarity, same parts will have same numbers and the detailed description thereof will be here omitted since already provided.

According to this embodiment, the plurality of tool holders are made entirely integral with the belt loop 6. The plurality of tool holders are preferably made of plastic or metallic materials to be associated with a belt at the waist (not shown in the figures) which can be made of traditional material, such as leather, leather, fabric.

As illustrated in the figures, the tool holder refers to a hairdryer holder 11 which has a slightly conical structure 110 which is hollow and open at its ends. The structure of the hairdryer holder 11 has two lateral openings 112 for housing the hairdryer handle. The cylindrical structure 110 it is radiused with a chamfered portion 111 to the plate member 2.

From the preceding description it is understood that the kit according to the present invention mentions a plurality of tool holders that can be presented individually or in groups on a hairdresser belt or similar according to the required use. In the description provided above, the tools and the methods of their insertion into the tool holders have not been added or illustrated, because the latter it is intuitive.

It should be evident that, by inserting more loops 1 in the belt, it is possible to use several tool holders at the time and, therefore, more tools simultaneously. Alternatively, the hairdresser can hold only one loop 1 and change the tool holder according to the needs of the user. As a matter of facts, all tool holders have the same protruding member interfaceable with the same box shaped member of the respective loop.

The present invention has a number of advantages.

The operator wears all the tools he needs and does not have to rest them with consequent dimensions and risk of falls. This reduces the working time because the hairdresser does not have to drag behind support trolleys.

In addition, the operator must not assume unacceptable postures, such as holding a tool (for example, a hairdryer) between the legs or temporarily entrusting it to the customer .

Additionally, thanks to the ventilation openings, tools that produce heat can be kept on avoiding wasting time .
