Hair is probably the first thing a person notices when seeing a character. It has the potential to stick out the most among all the small details. Some artists go the extra mile to give their characters a style that will be particularly memorable.
Today, we will be talking about 15 Cartoon Characters With Crazy Hair. From shocking hair colors to hairstyles that defy more than just gravity, we will be including everything that has left an impression on their audience.
Like other details, the hair itself tells a whole story of a person. A bright hair color typically means a brighter personality. Dark, sleek hair is reminiscent of serious characters (of course, not always). Braids are usually done by intelligent characters, while you will see spikes on those with a proclivity to go out of the box.
As we all know, crazy hair is like the bread & butter of anime, so we won’t be including characters from those.
So, without any further delay, let’s begin!

15 Cartoon Characters With Crazy Hair

11. Johnny Test

This name is a big CN throwback to the late 2000s – early 2010s era. Jonathan “Johnny” Test is the eponymous main character of the series. He is a mischievous young boy with a perchance for anything he deems ‘awesome.’ He often assists his twin sisters in their experiments and is often seen with his genetically altered talking dog, Dukey.
Johnny’s hair somewhat resembles flames. He has spiky blonde hair with reddish-orange tips. His father, Hugh, has similar hair.
Cartoon Name: Steven Universe
Steven Universe has some really colorful designs, so choosing one is hard. But we will include Alexandrite in our list due to how cool her fusion is. A fusion of Garnet, Amethyst, and Pearl, Alexandrite has thick, spiky turquoise hair.
Both her hair and her personality are a mix of all the gems she fused from. Since she has three separate personalities, they often come into conflict with each other.
9. The Trolls
Cartoon Name: Trolls
The trolls are meant to be all crazy, colorful, and sparkly. So, we are going to include them as a whole on the list. They all have long hair that sticks out and stays up, defying gravity. Every troll has a different shade, and each is unique in its own way.
Poppy, our main character, and Queen of Pop, has bright pink hair, while Branch has black. The twins, Satin and Chenille, have their hair connected together and a cotton candy gradient. Like so, every Troll has insane hairstyles and colors.
8. Amity Blight
Cartoon Name: The Owl House
One of the major characters of The Owl House, Amity Blight is a young, prodigious witch attending the Hexside School of Magic and Demonic. She starts off as an antagonist, but Luz’s kindness changes her. She reforms herself, mends her broken friendship with Willow, and becomes good friends with Luz.
Amity seems to like playing with her hair color. She initially had two-toned hair, mint green, with her natural brown roots showing, which she kept in a ponytail. She later dyes them to a lilac color and wears them down as a bob cut.
Cartoon Name: Raya and the Last Dragon
Sisudtu is the crackhead, fun-loving dragon in Raya and the Last Dragon. The last left behind of her kind, Raya, called upon her to defeat the dark forces of Druun to save humanity.
In her original form, her majestic mane has different shades of blue and white, which turns into her hair when she is in her human form. She may be a goofball, but she is also wise and brave, befitting a legendary dragon. Her optimistic outlook helped Ry a lot on the quest to save his kingdom.
6. Rena Rouge
Cartoon Name: Miraculous Ladybug
Miraculous Ladybug also has some very interesting character designs, but when it comes to hair, Rena has one of the most unique. Alya Césaire is Mrinette’s best friend at college. She received the Fox Miraculous from Ladybug, which can turn her into Rena Rouge when inhabited by Trixx.
Alya normally has red-brown hair with darker tips at the end. In her Rena form, her tips turn white, and she keeps her hair in a ponytail. Her hair turns icy blue as Ren Furtive.
5. Harley Quinn
Cartoon Name: Harley Quinn
Everyone knows Harley Quinn as the crazy sidekick of the nefarious Joker. However, her animated series follows her adventures after she breaks up with him. With the help of DC castoffs like Poison Ivy, she tries to earn a seat in the infamous Legion of the Doom.
Harley has long blonde hair, which she keeps in her classic ponytail style. Her red and blue tips are basically her trademark. Her initial psychotic personality goes through much character growth as the series progresses, and she learns a lot by the end.
Cartoon Name: 101 Dalmatians
Cruella De Vil’s hairstyle is as iconic as her. One of the evilest Disney Villains, Cruella is a fashion-obsessed maniac who will go to any lengths to satisfy her infatuation with fur. Her wish is to use the skins of 99 Dalmatian puppies to create a spotted fur coat for herself.
Her shoulder-length hair is divided into two different colors: the right half is black, while the left half is white. She is greedy, selfish, narcissistic, and loves to have the spotlight on herself.
Cartoon Name: Adventure Time
There is a reason Finn keeps his hair usually hidden under his hood. They are simply too majestic and luscious. The main protagonist of the series, Finn Mertens, is a young adventurer. His best friend and adoptive dog brother, Jake, accompanies him everywhere.
Finn has incredibly long golden locks of hair. They go through several different changes throughout the series. Finn first cuts his hair to give to the Tree Witch.
They grow normally afterward until he cuts them again to disguise them as Davey. This isn’t the last time since he frequently cuts and shaves his hair when the situation calls, showing that he doesn’t seem to care for his own hair whatsoever, as envious as it is.
2. Rick Sanchez
Cartoon Name: Rick and Morty
Richard “Rick” Sanchez of Dimension C-137 is one of the titular protagonists of Rick and Morty. He is a mega-genius scientist who reunites with her daughter Beth after going missing for twenty years, converting her garage into his personal laboratory. He often involves his grandson Morty in his misadventures.
Due to the popularity of this series, Rick’s spiky blue hair is also quite famous. He may be really intelligent, but he has a pessimistic outlook, and his jaded personal views often muddle his brilliance.
Cartoon Name: Tangled
Rapunzel marks the end of our list. She is basically KNOWN for her magical golden hair. Crazy is kind of an understatement for them. The protagonist of Disney’s Tangled, Rapunzel, is the Princess of Corona, who was abducted by Mother Gothel for her hair’s de-aging properties.
Due to the effects of the magic flower that saved her mother’s life during her pregnancy, Rapunzel has bright blonde hair. VERY long. Seventy feet, to be exact. They glow when anyone chants the magic spell and have the ability to heal.
When Eugene cuts them short by the end of the movie, they turn brown, which still earns him scorn from the audience (in his defense, he is dying). However, we, for one, believe that the small, spiky dark hair suits Rapunzel’s free-spirited and brave nature quite well.
That brings us to the end! Hopefully, you enjoyed this hairy adventure with us and will check out similar articles if they pique your interest.
