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.
