I (thankfully!) haven't really been insulted about my hair very much - maybe a couple of snide comments from kids who thought they were clever in middle school, but I can't remember specifically - but I have a fellow curly friend who has definitely gotten her fair share of remarks. Though most of them have been positive (her hair really is astounding), she has gotten the "poodle" label more than once. I remember one time someone called her a poodle and she turned around and told them they looked exactly like an Afghan hound.

I think there is a type of dog to describe everyone's hair.
