Are there any examples of female characters with Shonen Hair?

I see the Awesomeness.
Kaze no Stigma maybe? Are we counting Peek-a-Bangs or the one where it just covers an entire side of the face?

Not all Anime Hair is Shonen Hair. The latter has a specific definition: "their hair is always in a mess, bulges out on all sides, and often looks kind of spiky". Like this guy:

I found:

Yubel from YuGiOhX, and perhaps Mai Kujaku. Yu-Gi-Oh!, the king of Shonen Hair, really disappointed me here, pretty much all females have smooth and spikeless hair. And I'm not even certain if Yubel is really female :K

Mai's hair doesn't look messy, though. That's part of the basic requirements alongside "all-around bulging" (which Mai does have).

And Yubel appears to be officially considered of female gender, judging by her wiki profile.

Not as spiky, but Subaru has shades of it.
The Internet misuses, abuses, and overuses everything.

[up] That hairstyle is not uncommon in non-shonen work, to be honest. But speaking of Strikers, Erio's hairstyle seems to be a Downplayed example of Shonen Hair.

[up][up] Otto from that series (and on the same page) is a she and has shonen hair! Well, not clumpy, but spiky at least, and looks messy.

Wendi a bit lower also leans towards there.

Maybe if it were more bulging and/or spiky...

What about Ryoko from Tenchi Muyo!?

You need to ask? wink Definitely yes. Can't believe I didn't remember her. XP Come to think of it, wouldn't Washu's hair fit too?

[up] Well, given that you asked, I wasn't sure if you were disqualifying her for any reason. grin

I'd qualify Washu as well, since it does run in the family.

So Sonic the Hedgehog counts?

[up]For female Shonen Hair? I think, based on gender issues, no.

Does Cure Bloom/Bright count?

[up] Seconded.

[up][up]Doesn't the pink one has the same hair style, though?

Dammit, I meant to type Sonic the Hedgehog hair.

Oh, for hair like Sonic?

Well, I suppose it depends, since it's supposed to be about hair that not only sticks out and is really spiky, but is also indicative of being Hot-Blooded or the like. If they have the right attitude, a hairdo like Sonic would count.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
