The '80's African American hairdo was called the jheri curl.

Some time back I called attention to a cashier named "Jheri."

Now a puppet fabricator for the film _Anomalisa_ is listed as (the possibly
self-named)
"Jhoey Monster."

A Google search shows that Mr. or Ms. Monster has other, similar credits to
his/her/their name.
