LOUISE BROOKS – PIONEER OF THE BOB HAIRSTYLE
Louise Brooks (1906-1985) was an American dancer, showgirl, model and silent film actress in the 1920s and 1930s. Her boyish silhouet and her characteristic bobbed haircut featured the modern type of woman in the 1920s. Her career started in Hollywood in 1925 as a danser, however her sharp intelligence and demands for being integrated was not appreciated. Some years later she was discovered by the German instructor G.W Pabst who brought her to Germany and gave her two important roles – the fatale Lulu in ‘Die Büchse der Pandora’ and another one in ‘Tagebuch einer Verlorenen’. In 1938 she quit show business and was working as a shop assistant. Then in the 1950 she was reinvented and achieved cult status for her old movies.
