... or does it just look like curly endive or chicory?

Would dipping the head in cold water (stem attached) a good way of cleaning it? I've heard of (& used) this technique for cleaning vegetables such as leeks.

Yes, frisée is also known as curly endive, although I've never heard it called that in a kitchen. The best way to wash is as you mentioned; dunking in cold water while holding onto the root end and continuing to gently plunge it up and down until all surface dirt is removed. Use a salad spinner to dry and then store in your fridge with a barely damp paper towel draped over the top.
