Helicopter Hair

Go To
Gain the power of Flight... through your hair! No doubt spinning is awesome.

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.
