awe them with your confidence and this will be less and less of an issue. if someone comments again to you, look at them like you don't know what they are talking about. let them question themselves for having said anything at all. make the ***** wish she had curly hair.
it's kind of like that scene in Jawbreakers? (movie) where one girl tries to sabotage another girl by shredding her top in the locker room, the "victim" unperturbed wears the shirt with such confidence and the next day all the girls are wearing their shirts ripped.
