A while back I renamed this article to the apparently more standard Pageboy. It originally said:
- The Page Boy is a hair style named after a drawing of a woman dressed as an English page boy.
I'm wondering what the source for this is. Is this a particular drawing by a particular artist? Also, as far as I know, the style was actually popularized in the 1920s by the actress Louise Brooks. But I don't know enough about this to expand the article. Unfortunately, a talk-page message to the original author hasn't been answered. - dcljr (talk) 1 July 2005 08:38 (UTC)

Ancient representation of the hair cut.
I would suggest that the history of this style seems to be very ancient, please see if you can insert this example into the article; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Belisarius Actually the representation preceding does not show the entire mosaic as it once did so it can be seen here; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Meister_von_San_Vitale_in_Ravenna_003.jpg Note the "pageboys" appear to the left. 184.108.40.206 (talk)Ronald L.
