It occurs to me that I may have the cart before the horse here. It may simply be that I have always liked long, glossy red-brown hair, and like Princess Leia/Carrie Fisher because it. LOL One of my favorite comic book characters (and the only female on that list...) is Kitty Pryde, who was always depicted (in the years I read Marvel comics) as having long, wavy, glossy (red)brown hair. I can't think, off the top of my head, of any other female figures in any pop culture form that I could say I 'admired'. Interesting.
