I figured I would post this poll after being inspired by another thread.

    I can't answer the question because it would depend on the person on what stood out about them.

    If they had a very noticeable hair colour, or a style that stood out - like a mohawk or a ceiling-high afro, then I would probably notice that first.

    If they had an unusual nose, an interesting eye colour, very large ears, etc., I might notice that first.

    Or if they were very tall, very short had giant boobs, etc., I might notice that first.

    If they made me laugh from the minute I met them, or did something that pissed me off right away, then I would notice their personality first.

    If the person is a curly, then yes, hair is the first thing I notice.

    But, as Malory mentioned, I may notice other things first fepending on what the persons most notable feature is.

    I think that on me, people tend to notice my hair first or identify me by my hair. :The curly haired lady" "The redhead" Stuff like that. Out of about 60 co-workers, only one other woman wears her hair curly, so we stick out.
    Kiva! Microfinance works.

    Med/Coarse, porous curly.

    In my case anyway, my hair has always been the first thing people notice.

    As far as me looking at others, if their hair is curly it's always what I notice. I just find curly hair very attention grabbing.

    At least in my case it seems that way. People recognize me for the hair. When I've straightened it in the past some say I look like a completely different person!
