* Rebekah Brooks (of the Rupert Murdoch scandal) is a RealLife Example. Some of the coverage of her smacks of body-policing.

Added DiffLines:

* Parado of ''Series/KamenRiderExAid'' is PsychopathicManchild who gets bored [[AttentionDeficitOhShiny extremely easily]], so he is either toying with something, [[MagnificentBastard scheming]] or [[DeadlyGame fighting]]. He has frizzly curly mess of hair in second and third dozen of episodes, but it starts to get somewhat straighter afterwards, coinciding with him being forced into less ''quirky and fun'' and more ''fighting for survival''.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Meera Reed's hairstyle. Karl Tanner even compliments her (in a not so flattering manner) for it.

** Pinky's SpearCounterpart Cheese Sandwich shares her frizzy mane, passion for parties, [[CompanionCube fondness for rubber chickens]] and pretty much constructed his personality after being inspired by Pinkie herself. For bonus points, he's voiced by none other than Creator/WeirdAlYankovic.

* This is ingrained enough that many naturally curly-haired actors and actresses get [[TypeCasting typecast]] into the roles the trope is designed for. [[{{Numb3rs}} David Krumholtz]] springs immediately to mind.

They may try everything they can to get sleek, straight hair, possibly representing a desire to fit in or be popular. Often there will be a scene where they try to tame their [[MessyHair wildly curly hair]] but as soon as they have it smoothed down or pinned into a PrimAndProperBun it poofs up again.

Compare MessyHair. When a character only has one weird curl, it's probably an {{Ahoge}}. Contrast RegalRinglets, OjouRinglets, MegaTwintails. This hairstyle was one of the defining styles of [[EightiesHair the eighties]].

This type of curly hair, especially in girls, represents non-conformity or high energy. These characters are the type to march to the beat of their own drum, sometimes on purpose, other times because they simply feel they don't fit in. They may be [[GenkiGirl quirky and fun]], [[SpiritedYoungLady rebelling against expectations]], or just eccentric or different. There also seems to be a correlation with this type of hair and being nerdy or intelligent, which contrasts popular girls having long straight hair, and too add to their 'differentness' is not uncommon for characters with QuirkyCurls to also have glasses or freckles. If in a fantasy work, if a character has very tight zigzaggy curls they may have lightning or fire powers, or if they have softer waves, they may have water magic.
