    Question with "the" funny hair

    Please, which one of the following collocations sounds more natural?

    1. Who's that boy with the funny hair?

    2. Who's that boy with funny hair?

    Should I use the article or not?

    Thank you.

    Re: with "the" funny hair

    The more natural sounding version is with "the."
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
