It’s a new term to me, too.

Never heard anyone say it in person, but a Q vendor of hair products uses it to mean cotton candy looking hair (another term he uses) negatively.

 


yes, I know the vendor you mean @Desi1 .

I've heard him use the phrase many times in presentations, and he doesn't use it as a compliment. It just never dawned on me I was the only one in the audience who knew what he meant (as I'm learning here).

  Wonder where he picked that expression up.

Term is new to me too but would consider it an insult.

Don't believe I've heard such a reference. I guess I'd think they meant fake looking hair.

Haven't heard it in reference to a person's hair.  I think I'd take it as an insult.

I grew up in Michigan, we never compared a person's hair to doll's hair.   I never heard this comparison before.
