See the man who had gorgeous blonde hair that covered his entire body
Meet Stephan Bibrowski, the man who had gorgeous blonde hair that covered his entire body. Stephan Bibrowski was born in 1890 in Bielsk, Poland, and had stunning blonde hair that covered his entire body from head to toe.
Due to his illness, his mother abandoned him and gave him to a businessman, who used him as a circus attraction throughout Europe until bringing him to America in 1901.
Barnum & Bailey snatched up Bibrowski as soon as he arrived in the nation and presented him as “Lionel the Lion-Faced Man,” describing him as “half-man, half-lion.”
For 20 years, Bibrowski was portrayed as a “freak,” and viewers hardly ever realized that the polite, soft-spoken man hiding behind the hair spoke five languages, and was secretly hoping to give acting up and become a dentist.
