Title: Mirror mounting assembly for hair grooming and styling

Abstract: An improved mirror mounting assembly is designed for use with an existing mirror for hair grooming and styling. The mirror assembly contains a mirror panel which is adjustable relative to an existing mirror for proper viewing. Once adjusted, the mirror angle does not normally require further adjustment since effective viewing is possible for a range of user heights. The mirror panel rotates to a protected position to prevent damage to either panel or assembly when the assembly is mounted on a door and door is opened against an adjacent wall. Similarly, mirror panel rotates to a protected position to prevent damage when the assembly is secured to a wall and an adjacent door is opened against the mirror panel. The mirror panel rotates from its protected position back to its preset viewing angle without intervention by user. The invention includes mounting and support elements which permit the assembly to be removably mounted over top edge of a door without tools. When the mirror assembly is mounted to inside of a bathroom or dressing room door, the mirror panel is available for viewing as door is closed to a position opposed to existing mirror. When the mirror assembly is mounted to outside of door, the mirror panel is available for viewing when door is opened to a position opposed to existing mirror. A modified support bracket permits securing the assembly to a wall when a door is not opposed to a fixed mirror, and the modified bracket may also be used for securing more permanently to a door. The viewer sees two images when facing mirror panel; the normal frontal image, and secondly, an image of the back, top and sides of viewer's head, thereby enabling the user to effectively observe, groom and style his or her hair.
