Helicopter Hair

Okay, now you're just being silly.

Gain the power of Flight... through your hair! No doubt Everything's Better with Spinning.

See Heli Critter for animal examples. See also Hair Wings for less spinning, more flapping variation.

Sub-Trope to Instant Flight, Just Add Spinning, Mercury's Wings is a sister trope. Compare Hat of Flight and Prehensile Hair.
