"Your hair... Grow it long again... you have very beautiful black hair, you mustn't let the war get the better of you, okay?
Anita, D.Gray-Man

This is where a character has such "beautiful" hair. This hair is one of their main defining characteristics, and many people become enamored with it because of it and some people commenting on it. Maybe their hair is an unusual color, or perhaps it's very long. Or possibly, their hair, even much shorter or messier, it's still considered gorgeous, mostly because of its color or being soft and/or silky, if not messy or spiked. This hair symbolizes the beauty of the character. Occasionally, the character themselves will hate their own hair because it makes them "different." The character can be ethier male or female.

Contrast and compare What Beautiful Eyes, where the character has gorgeous eyes. See also Raven Hair, Ivory Skin.
