I feel like the image isn't really suited... it might cause confusion with the two different hairstyles, and I think an actual human would look better than a mane.

I agree; This is generally going to a trope about human hair styles and an illustration of this hair on a human would be good. Especially when the image deliberately contrasts it with Princess Curls on a Horse.

This has the potential to be confusing. There should be a better example.

Slightly off-topic, but what the hell is Pinkie doing to that chicken in the page picture?

Hesitant to add some examples because of how popular they are, is there a reason they aren't listed?:

Fran from the nanny, River song from doctor who, the princess from brave

I'll say it again. Hermione isn't quirky. In a castle full of quirky people, she is the dull sensible, mainstream one.

Exercise your best judgement then, remove the example.

Might be worth adding as a subversion?

It's definitely not a subversion; it's either an aversion (since there's nothing that implies that she should be quirky due to the hair or that her hair should be straight) or an example.

I'd argue it should be allowed to stay because she does have a few odd quirks that fits into the "nerdy girl frizz" archetype (which lacking its own trope page mostly fits here). I'm not a massive HP fan, but S.P.E.W. comes immediately to mind as a reason that she might be seen as at least a slightly quirky granola girl even if her approach in doing so is more grounded than cuckoolander.
