The description for the trope is as follows:
"A catch-all term used for anime and cartoon characters with bizarre, improbable, or just plain goofy-looking hairstyles."
Yet it has a huge sections, even on the page (to say nothing of the wicks), of examples that range from European music starts to live action film that have no relation to anime, manga, or other forms of comics and cartoons. Even Andrew Jackson
is said to have Anime Hair
Also, the index includes lots of hair styles that either have nothing to Anime, such as '80s Hair
, or that even if Japanese, they originated in Real Life
hair styles, such as the Hime Cut
Should we redefine this to match how it is used, and if so, why call it "anime" hair?
Or should we simply clean up the massive misuse? For example, lots of Live Action
cases would be more accurately described as Spiky Hair
I think an argument could also be made that sense hair in anime is in fact rather diverse, and the list on the page is mostly duplicating the Hair Tropes
list, we could just roll this into Hair Tropes
