Do you have a curly hair nickname?

Just for fun.........

When I was in junior high & high school I got called Poodle Head an awful lot, & not in a nice way. :cry: You know how mean kids can be.

Ever since I went CG, I have a coworker who calls me Shirley Temple, & in a nice way. :toothy7: Shirley got her spiral tubes from a curling iron, I got mine naturally. That name has stuck, & it doesn't bother me one bit. :wink:

    Poodle seems to be a common one- I definitely got called that a number of times when I was younger.

    I think I'm in the minority, I was never called names because of my curls.

    But, my mom has very naturally curly hair (I'd guess 3c bordering on 4a) and she was called "Fuzz" all through high school. To this day (45+ years later) she still runs into former classmates who call her "Fuzz" this point she's just resigned to it! :laughing7:

    In elementary school I was called, "Curly Fry," and "Curly Sue." Then in high school one guy at work told me I looked like a Q-tip because I'm so thin with big hair on top.
    Nothing recently, though... What's not to like now? :wink:

    My hair was pretty short & blowdried straight during most of my school days, until the eighties that is when big hair was the fashion anyway: so no nicknames there.
    I did get called lion-head a couple of years ago but in a kindly teasing sort of way & it didn't stick.

    I can't say as I had any because my hair was stick straight until puberty hit at about 13/14 and it started to get wavy. I really wasn't a "curly" until my late teens. But people made fun of my face instead, ie "alien", "monkey", "racoon"(I have dark circles under my eyes-always have.) Sounds silly now, but it definitely wasn't at the time. But think now girls how many of those jerks would kill to have your exotic, sexy full head of gorgeous curls! Hehehe, I love being a part of this family!:blob7::toothy7:

    My sisters used to call me S.O.S. (like the scouring pads). They both had stick-straight hair as little girls but now they're both curlies. Gotta laugh at karma, huh?

    Never had curly nicknames when I was younger because I straightened all through high school and I learned how to be really good at it.

    Now that I wear it curly and henna it red, people call me Sassy Pants. I've always been sassy, but I guess the red makes it more obvious? And it's not like one person heard and the others followed. It's totally unrelated people who call me that.

    Nobody ever gave me nicknames because of my hair. Now they did call me things because I was shy and quiet, and because I was skinny, and because I was the only one in my class who aced the chemistry final exam (I'm not that smart, just studied really hard).

    I know a girl who has the name Autumn so a bunch of people started calling her Spring because she had really curly hair. It wasn't meant to be mean, just playful teasing.
