Everyone here has either been through what you have (more likely) or can empathize with you. Sweety I am so sorry they did that to you. It is so important to be true to who you are. I was a teen when feathering was in, and let me tell you curly hair DOES NOT feather. I tried to no avail. A few times I had something that would resemble a red afro, but luckily kids were not TOO mean. They were mean, but like Curli said, she was so right.....
"they are jealous of you."
I had several very mean girls in my highschool that would always call me curly shirly or red-headed woodpecker... it really hurt my feelings, but now guess what? Women are paying hundreds of dollars to get my color and I STILL HAVE IT. I went through a phase where I dyed it all colors of the rainbow, and even had it short like Susan Powter.... short and blond (what was I thinking?) But you hold your head high, condition that hair and make it shine. You are beatiful and be proud because secretly a lot of those girls would die to have your hair, trust me I know. I have always had beautiful hair it just took time to realize it
When I was a freshman one girl that rode my schoolbus was so jealous of me she spit in my hair and put gum in it. (It was because the boy I had a crush on liked me too, and she was JEALOUS) Secretly she wanted me to cut it like a boy. I went home and cried just like you and my Mom told me, "Honey she is jealous of you."
Just know this now young lady and it will spare you so much pain, don't listen to those *(&^%s you are your own person and be happy for it, you are the only you around. OK trooper, now go and make that curly hair look dazzling condition it, shine it put a barrette in it and soon the popular girls will want to look like you, trust me I know from experience.
Get your eyebrows waxed too, that always makes you look and feel better.

Never try to be something you are not, and never be afraid to be who you are.
