If you’re looking for a nickname for a curly haired individual in you’re life – whether they’re female or male – I’m crossing my fingers that I’ve got the perfect nickname in my list for you.
And if not – my goal is to at least give you enough ideas for nicknames for curly haired people that you’ll be able to springboard off my list, going off to hopefully find the most flawless nickname you can for the boy or girl in your life you’re looking to name.
While there are a lot of ways you can go about finding a good nickname for a person, using their curly hair as a source of inspiration is probably one of my favourite ideas.
Yes, it’s nice to go off personality traits sometimes, and there are other physical features you can use (such as eye colour, for instance), but when it comes to curly hair, for some reason I just think it’s such an awesome feature that it makes it almost impossible for me to say something else should take precedent over it when it comes to finding a good nickname.
Speaking of nicknames based on hair – I’ve written an article about nicknames for a specific hair colour – in particular nicknames for redheads – before, so if the curly haired person in your life is also redheaded, you might want to check that out for some extra inspiration.
Maybe something on that list strikes your fancy a lot more than something on this list, or maybe you’ll find something that ties together both these beautiful hair-related features.
I’ll probably do an article on good nicknames for blondes, and maybe even nicknames for brunettes and ravens, as well so let me know if these kinds of articles would be helpful to you and keep an eye out for them in the future.
But back to the curly hair, because I have to say, I actually grew up jealous of other women with curly hair myself. It was one of those features I really wish I had myself – that and green eyes – to the point where when I grew up and was in university, I actually opted to have a perm done to get my hair curly.
Did I love it? Hell yes, and I wish my hair was like that naturally, though it’s not the same when you get a perm done because when it grows back in straight at the top, it just doesn’t look nice anymore, so you don’t get to enjoy it anywhere near long enough for the perm to be worth it (in my experience).
All this to say – if you have a friend, girlfriend, boyfriend, relative, or whatever, with curly hair who you’re trying to find a nickname for and it’s screamed out enough at you to be used as a springboard for nickname ideas – do yourself a favour and give that person a compliment on their crazy amazing hair.
I feel like a lot of times, curly haired people just don’t get enough love for this gorgeous feature. So many curly haired celebrities straighten their hair so often, you don’t even know they have natural curls. It’s a whole thing.
So the more positive attention you can give these (honestly in my opinion crazy sexy!) people wearing out their hair au natural in curls, the better, in my opinion.
