English term or phrase: purdey
A hotbrush is the simplest way to make your purdey behave.

Obviously refers to a hair style, which looks a bit like a bob to me, but I'm wondering if there is another translation for a purdey in German.

Explanation:
Some background: this hairstyle used to be incredibly popular for women years ago in the UK. It was named after the character played by Joanna Lumley (Purdey) in the British TV show New Avengers.
