The only other good guys who go shaven are {{Badass}} {{Anti Hero}}es, so if a hero shaves his head as part of an ImportantHaircut, it is a sure sign he's about to get DarkerAndEdgier.

The tendency is, indeed, for the moral decay of a character to be inversely proportionate to the length of their hair, with innocent, virginal princesses practically drowning in their romantically flowing locks while the hard-bitten {{Badass}} sports a spiky military crewcut. The most frequent {{aver|tedTrope}}sion of this trope is the WhiteHairBlackHeart, whose usually long and luscious tresses exist as a ''symbol'' of his evil, not in spite of it.

* ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'': Silas shaves off all of his hair in season 3 [[spoiler:for medical purposes as he underwent heavy surgery]]. That, coupled with the damages to his body, serves to make him more sickly and unnerving.

** Plenty of bald heroes too: Tenshinhan, Krillin, and Master Roshi. But Tenshinhan was originally a villain, so the point stands.
** Krillin originally convinced Master Roshi to train him by bribing him with pornography. And Krillin isn't naturally bald, as he grows his hair back (as a sign that he was no longer living as a monk who renounced all worldly pleasures) after marrying [[RidiculouslyHumanRobots Number Eighteen]].
