* ''Webcomic/ManlyGuysDoingManlyThings'' did this recently with Commander Badass hanging out in the park with Ganodorf. After seeing a poster with [[Videogame/HyruleWarriors Ganondorf sporting very long hair]] he asks when was the photo taken. Ganondorf says his hair has been that long for many years and demonstrates by untying one of his braids revealing hair down to his navel. The Commander is duly impressed and asks how Ganondorf learned to tie up his hair like that. Ganondorf replies that he has a insane number of sisters.

* Similarly, in an episode of ''{{Duckman}}'', Cornfed pulls off his rather small hat and an enormous afro-like hairdo comes ballooning into view.

* In ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'', Elsa's hair looks short because it's in a braid which is in turn wrapped around her head and coiled into a tight bun at the back. [[http://youtu.be/moSFlvxnbgk?t=174 When she lets it down during "Let It Go"]], it turns out to reach down to her waist, even while still braided. Anna's hair is at least as long as Elsa's, but it also manages to fit into a similar braided bun that's pinned even higher than Elsa's, leaving not a single strand of hair past the top of her nape.

* In ''Manga/{{Kuragehime}}'', while giving the Sisterhood [[TheMakeover makeovers]], Kuranosuke is unable to straighten Banba's FunnyAfro, so he plops a wig onto of it instead, somehow managing to keep all of her hair inside it.

* Tamaura of ''{{Webcomic/Blindsprings}}'' normally has incredibly voluminous, curly hair nearly [[RapunzelHair as long as she is tall]], but is able to compress it down into two looping braids when she has to go out in public, with a LampshadeHanging on how her huge hair [[http://www.blindsprings.com/comic/blindsprings-page-forty-five is way too distinct]]. She can also [[http://www.blindsprings.com/comic/blindsprings-page-two-hundred-and-thirty-two unravel it]] when she does her HenshinSequence, justified by it being explicitly magical.

* Grumpy of ''WesternAnimation/The7D'' rarely takes off his flowerpot hat, because his hair is [[RapunzelHair an extreme case of this,]] and has unpleasant childhood memories of being pressed up against the barbershop window by his gigantic decompressed hair and being laughed at by the townspeople. [[GoodIsDumb Queen Delightful]] helps him get over it by revealing her new haircut is very similar case (covering the nearby area with hair up to her waist) and declaring him the winner of "Funniest Haircut Day". He insists she won, but ultimately they decided to call it a draw and split the reward.

The easiest way to do this is to conceal their hair under a helmet, a wig, or with a hat, cap or scarf. This also gives the author the potential to toss out TheReveal with a dramatic explosion of flowing locks as the character's most prominent attribute positively identifies them for all to see.

Except...hair doesn't work that way. It can range from "fairly difficult" to "really freakin' hard" to successfully compact and store long or thick hair in such a small space. And even if it can fit, there's a real-life phenomenon known as "helmet hair" -- hair that's been tucked up under a close-fitting piece of headgear for very long tends to be not so flowing and perfectly styled when it's released.

* C.C. of ''Anime/CodeGeass'' does this almost any time that she impersonates Zero by wearing his outfit. Her waist-length hair just magically manages to fit into the Zero mask. Oddly averted later when ''everyone'' is wearing Zero costumes in R2, and C.C. has her green hair notably extending outside of the Zero mask in a way that'd easily identify her if not for the IAmSpartacus moment.

* Bethesda's [=RPGs=], notably ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' and ''VideoGame/{{Fallout}}'' games, disable a character's hair when most headgear is equipped. One specific example, from ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'', is the Megaton hairstyle (a gigantic beehive styled like a mushroom cloud) disappearing under a simple baseball cap.

* Custom character creation and ClothingDamage in ''SoulCalibur IV'' combine to allow this. You can give a character a huge afro and put a close-fitting helmet over it, and it'll magically be sucked into hammerspace. Until you break the helmet in combat, that is, at which point it ''erupts''. Players have been known to lose matches from the distraction.
