FlappersFlappers were a "new breed" of young Western women in the 1920s who wore short skirts, bobbed their hair, listened to jazz, and flaunted their disdain for what was then considered acceptable behavior. Flappers were seen as brash for wearing excessive makeup, drinking, treating sex in a casual manner, smoking, driving automobiles and otherwise flouting social and sexual norms.
Iconic Flapper - Louise Brooks was a dancer, model, showgirl, and actress - but her hair received much of the attention she earned in the 1920s. She is credited with popularizing the bob. Although American, she became best known acting in German expressionist films.
