Both of them [[http://www.redstring.strawberrycomics.com/?p=765 got restyled together]] in order to [[ImportantHaircut help Reika get over a bad experience]]. Later, when Miharu is transferred to a more elite school, she is required [[http://www.redstring.strawberrycomics.com/?p=700 to dye it back]].

Outside of contemporary times, dyeing hair was still significant, but for different reasons. Less than a century ago, dyeing hair at all was considered a sign of badness because it was dishonest. This is why evil blondes are often dyed. During [[EnglishCivilWar Restoration England]], natural blondes commonly dyed their hair darker because everyone would think they had dyed it blonde in the first place. (This was partly because of the dangers of earlier dyes: dyeing your hair risked your health for temporary good looks.)

This trope usually does not show up in settings where YouGottaHaveBlueHair. A common attribute of TheQuincyPunk, subtrope of FaceOfAThug when it's natural. If the hair keeps being re-dyed, it overlaps with KaleidoscopeHair. Compare MakeUpIsEvil. See also FifiesHair, relating to pompadours.

In some cultures, hair dyed unusual colors is considered a sign of delinquency--in the west, this means colours such as blue, pink, green, and similar shades that don't usually appear in nature. In other cultures, where hair shades are typically more similar from person to person, this can include hair tinted or lightened to red or blonde as well. There are certain hair styles which are strongly associated with delinquent or punk behaviour--mohawks, pompadours, certain spiky styles, and a completely shaven head.

** Also [[InvertedTrope inverted]] with Kobato and Sena; while they are not exactly delinquents, they behave in ways that society would deem quite unfitting, yet despite their own natural blonde hair, neither is seen as a delinquent or such by others. It's generally accepted though that this is because Kodaka's hair looks dyed, while Kobata's and Sena's look much more natural.
