"Curly" by several people, which was meant in a cute way and I liked.
"Diana Ross" and "Slash" in high school, which I also liked.
"Frizz-head" by some girls who didn't like me.
"Bush woman" or "bush head" by my so-called friends in junior high.
"Scary Spice" and "Freddie" (Cree Summer's character on A Diff'rent World) in college - liked those too.
"Pouffy" and "pouff-head" from several people in college.
My mama has called me "angel hair" like the pasta ever since I can remember and I like that. Before he knew she did that, my husband called me "angel hair" and he still does.
Also, politically incorrect, but my aunt and some of my cousins used to call me "gypsy" or "gypsy girl" because of my hair.
Urbancurl, my braids used to curl up and stick out like Pippi Longstocking's too! I think people used to comment on that as well.
