They are called ringlets.

I did not know that. 

From episode 6 of GATE, which is educational as well as entertaining.

1 Drill hair.  It is only called drill hair.

2 Ringlets are small circular ring-shaped curls (as opposed to long spiral curls). Many women get them naturally, but they can also be created by curling irons or curling papers/curlers/curl rags.
Drill hair is not natural. Human hair does not really work that way. I suppose one could get a perm that looked that stupid, but why? And yet it is an anime thing, I guess because European hair is a fantasy object for illustrators to do strange things with.

3 To explain better, a spiral curl is in the shape of a helix or spring and curls as it hangs down. A ringlet is a shorter amount of hair that is shaped like a circle (or of hair that hangs straight and then is curled into a circle only at its ends).
I suppose that the Rose Knight just sleeps with two giant curl rags in her hair, which has a sort of utilitarianism. But there has to be magic involved when it stays that way all day while riding. (Insert rant about perfect movie hair here.)

4 Anyway, drill hair is a type of spiral curl, which was my original and forgotten point.

5 The things around her face are "kiss curls" or sometimes "spit curls." There are other names for them, and sometimes one sees circular singlet kiss curls.

7 Sadly, I am actually pretty ignorant about hair. A lot of women have a lot more technical knowledge of this stuff, without even getting into the actual cosmologists out there. I actually learned more in the SCA than in regular life, albeit I recently ran into an early 19th century French book talking about this stuff in great detail in re: powdered wigs for men (just going out of style).
They say everybody is geeky about something.... A lot of women are into hair minutiae.

8 So... Why were the wigs powdered?
