I've heard someone use 'doll hair' in reference to what hair on a wig might look like and in that instance it's not a good thing because hair on a doll is fake-looking. 


Yup  2 dollar wig hair.🤣

Hair that is colored light blonde where the roots are just as bleached as the length looks like a doll's hair

Never heard that term, more familiar with "bedhead" which seems to be what we see much of today.....hair that appears to need styling or combing, as in messy and unkempt....

I've never heard that but if someone said it to me I would consider it an insult.  That it looked like I had plastic hair.

Post gave me a chuckle because I remembered what my dad used to say to my sister:  her hair looked as though she combed it with an egg beater.  She still can’t do her own hair at 70 !

 

Her twin became a hairdresser and would use that skill to torment her.


Ouch, I feel for her hearing that from your dad. @Jlkz

I'm another one who has never, ever heard anyone compare a person's hair to doll hair. I'm 71 and have lived in 2 states....it's a new one to me!

Re: An Insult Or a Compliment?

I'm 72 and I use 'slang' but I've never heard that expression. 

 

I live in Northern Va.  I've never heard that expression at all.

 

I asked my daughter who now lives in Colorado and she's never heard that expression.
