An interesting usage

There is an article in today's New York Times about trends, notably fashion trends. And half-way through the article there is a discussion of the once and future  craze for extensions, for long hair. And in an almost poetic evocation of the long hair / short dialetic, the author of the article states. "The new look for fall grew out of new technology. A company called Great Lengths has marketed a gizmo that can make Rapunzel out of Louise Brooks in a matter of minutes." What an interesting usage of Brooks' name! She has now become a symbol for a woman who has short hair.
