* ''TheEmperorsNewSchool'': In "Malina's Big Break" Malina has an extreme case of stress and in one gag she accidentally pulls off her apparent wig, revealing she's lost all her hair.
* On ''TinyToonAdventures'', Elmyra is occasionally shown to be bald when her wig flies off. Makes sense, as she's based on Elmer Fudd.

The trope is a staple of the "[[GimmickMatches Hair versus Hair" matches]]: the [[HumiliatingWager loser has to shave their head]] in the ring. As hair tends to represent not only the wrestler's pride but also female beauty when women are involved, this tends to be treated as a TraumaticHaircut.

** Many Dark Elves of both genders shave their heads also, sometimes leaving just a large topknot. Of especial note are the Sisters of Slaughter - superbly skilled and mostly-female gladiatorial arena fighters whose heads are shaved bald and the woven braids of their shorn hair turned into barbed whips for them to fight with.

* Certain Ultra-Orthodox Jewish women are traditionally required to shave their heads when they get married, and then wear a wig (or a headscarf- the idea is to never show the hair and keep the head covered, but it's easier to move about in society without the attention a bald head creates, and a headscarf may create the mistaken impression of undergoing chemotherapy) over their bald heads for the rest of their lives, even if they divorce.

* Ancient Egypt had a problem with lice. The Egyptians' typical solution was to shave their heads (or cut the hair very short) and wear wigs. This also had the advantage of being easier to maintain and style than natural hair would be, and easily removed to cool off on hot days. This was by no means universal, though- there's a statue of Princess Meritamen with her hair visible from under her wig.
