Dragonball Z Hair Guide

An Introduction:
Throughout the Dragonball manga, Toriyama is constantly changing the hairstyles of his characters (some more than others).

How This Section Works:
You'll find a picture of nearly every hairstyle (that changes) in Dragonball, Z, GT followed by the volume and chapter in which that hairstyle first appears. Whenever I felt it was appropriate, I have injected a (sometimes humorous) comment below the volume/chapter data.

Bulma:
Being the sexy, stylish woman that she is, Bulma changes her hairstyle constantly throughout Dragonball, Z, GT. In fact, she changes her hairstyle 16 different times, bringing her style count to a grant total of 17 (this contradicts the commonly held fact that she goes through 15 hairstyle changes and 16 total hairstyles). Once again, I dug through volumes of manga to verify the information contained in the Daizenshu (which we found to be wrong on several occasions this time).

Saiya-jins:
A purebred Saiya-jin's hair will always retain its natural "pointy" look and a constant length, unless the Saiya-jin cuts his/her hair (Goku is a good example of this, as his hairstyle never changes). Half and quarter Saiya-jins have much more natural hair, and will only retain the natural "pointy" look of a purebred Saiya-jin if it is specifically styled to do so (Goten is a good example of this, as his hairstyle retains the natural Saiya-jin look until he lets it grow out in his teenage years).

Vegeta:
No, Vegeta does not change his hairstyle. When he first appears in the Dragonball manga, his upper body is very short in comparison to the rest of his body. Later in the manga, he is drawn a bit taller, and with a much more proportioned anatomy. However, as Akira Toriyama began to draw Vegeta taller, he did not make his hair longer. Hence, this gives the perception that his hair is cut shorter later in the Dragonball manga.
