|I'm just trying to let my hair down.|
|—Holly in "O'Hair's Split Ends"|
Holly O'Hair (real name Poppy O'Hair) is a 2013-introduced and all-around character. She is the daughter of Rapunzel, and she is a student at Ever After High. In the destiny conflict, she is on the Royal side because she wants her destiny. Or rather, because she wants her sister's destiny. Holly is the younger twin sister of Poppy, but for years she was mistaken for the older one. She and Poppy have agreed to keep this reality a secret from everyone else, because Holly wants to be Rapunzel and Poppy, who is a Rebel, doesn't.
Being daughter of Rapunzel, she is already used to letting others use her hair for tower escapes and she seems happy to help. She enjoys reading and often tells her sister Poppy stories. Because of this she is regarded as smart. This is a pastime she will rely heavily on in her own fairy tale. Holly is a total Royal enthusiast and she is normally incredibly preppy.
Holly has very long auburn hair with a braid on the side. She has pale skin, aqua-blue colored eyes, and natural pink lips. Holly's choice of attire is quaint yet charming - she enjoys braiding her hair or styling it in an up-do and embellishing her accessories with hollies, hence her name. With her outfits, Holly normally wears pastel colors with gold. Despite the color "auburn" being a color literally to be a reddish-brown traditionally, her hair appears more strawberry-blond or redhead, looking to be a very light burnt-orange. But, in the books and characters' diaries, her hair is described as auburn.
Holly fancies reading in the library, as she knows that she's going to be doing much of it alone when she becomes the next Rapunzel. Along with reading, she indulges in writing as well. Be it writing stories or fanfiction about her friends, Holly claims that imagination is a princess's best friend.
Holly is also part of the cheerhexing squad.
