When I was a kid, my straight-haired younger sister called me "Hairy-It".
My neighbor, who was a hairdresser, called my hair a "rat's nest" when I was 12. 12 is the worst possible age to have your hair be called a rat's nest...I would wait so long between shampoos eventually my pillow was soaked in the mornings, from dirty hair. I'd sleep with encyclopedias and stuffed animals on my wet hair in efforts to straighten it.
Back then it was socially acceptable for anyone, even teachers, to joke about me "sticking my fingers in a socket" hardee har har...
The last time I had my hair cut professionally, 5 years ago (I've been cutting my own hair since), the
walked up to me and said, "Oooo, we have a lot of work to do here to clean this up!" After combing, brushing, cutting wet, and blow-drying, I left with a haircut that my husband called, "Art Garfunkel 1973".
the look I was going for.
