* There was a ''FarSide'' strip that caused a bit of controversy because it showed a female chimp picking a blond hair off her chimp husband and asking if he'd been doing more "research" with "that Jane Goodall tramp". Jane Goodall, by the way, loved that strip.

* ''MurderByDeath'': Sidney Wang tries to one up the detective group's SherlockScan by concluding that Mrs. Charleston must have dyed her hair red, because the hairs on Mr. Charleston's jacket are blonde, only to realize the truth halfway through his sentence.
* In ''That Old Feeling'', Rowena's bright red hair is a significant part of the backstory because it proved that she'd had an affair with Molly's father while he was still married to Lilly, Molly's mom. At the climax of the movie, Rowena's bright red hair also reveals that [[spoiler:she'd slept with Molly's newlywed husband on the previous night]].
* In the film ''Crossing Delancey'', an African-American character with curly black hair finds a long, straight blonde hair on her boyfriend, which she takes to mean that he's cheating on her.
* Usually affair hair is found in the bedroom, and belongs to the "other woman," but ''TheKidsAreAllRight'' uses a variation, when [[spoiler:Nic discovers the truth after finding her wife's distinctive red hair in a bathroom drain at a friend's house. The woman's excuse of having taken a shower to clean up after working in his garden falls flat when Nic reveals that she found her hair in his bed as well]].
