Louise Brooks Revolution The Bob Hair Cut!
Dancer, showgirl, and silent film star, Louise Brooks came to Hollywood,leaving behind a tragic childhood, and quickly shot to fame in pictures such as Pandora's Box and Diary of a Lost Girl. Louise Brooks laughed when she was called an icon, refused to smile in photographs, claimed to hate Hollywood, and popularized the bob hair cut in the 1920's. Louise Brooks is without a doubt one of the most iconic style and silent film stars of all time. The Bob hair cut was and is still one of the the most outstanding cut's ever. I still as a hairstylist am cutting this shape on my clients today! The 20's was a real revolution in fashion that will last. Today with the return of movies as The Great Gatsby this will keep us remembering how fantastic that era was in fashion and the creative spirit for joy of living let's not forget the passion of the The Roaring Twenties!
