German actress and singer Hildegard Knef showed the style of the times with her ultra-short bangs and flipped out bob. She might not have been as popular as Elizabeth Taylor was stateside but we’re sure you recognize the hairstyle as a quintessentially ‘50s ‘do.

This cut is so glamorous and has a lot of vintage flavor but it’s something we can imagine a lot of modern celebs wearing on the red carpet today. We know Dita Von Teese would totally rock it!
