* Midway through ''Crisis Core: VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'', Zack changes his hairstyle after [[spoiler:having to kill his mentor.]]
* In ''Final Fantasy VII'' flashbacks, Vincent Valentine is shown as a Turk -- with short, more military-esque hair. After sleeping for a few decades, (during which the rest of his body isn't aged in the least), he's now a gun-wielding, shape-shifting good guy -- with long hair to the middle of his back.

** Also averted a couple of times due to TheyJustDidntCare problems. For instance, the Chief Scientist in "The War Games" grows a beard between several episodes that are only a few hours apart diagetically, which can be a pretty confusing TimePassageBeard RedHerring seeing as the plot involves villainous use of time machines. Similarly, the Doctor's hair has been cut noticeably between "The Dominators" and "The Mind Robber" even though the two stories lead straight into each other, and everyone's (the Brigadier's, Sarah Jane's and the Fourth Doctor's) hair has grown out significantly between the cliffhanger at the end of "Planet of the Spiders" and "Robot" even though they link directly to each other, bad enough that the [[FlashbackWithTheOtherDarrin cliffhanger had to be reshot to make it less noticeable]] (although justified in the case of the Doctor, who is still regenerating).

* ''Film/MeanGirls'': This one happens off screen, but still played a big role in the charchter's development - Janis used to be best friend with AlphaBitch Regina. Than Regina disinvited her to her birthday party and cut her off, making all the other kids stop talking to her. The next year she was back in school with short black hair, and hell bent on destroying Regina the "life-ruiner".

* Jack Bauer's huge hair and beard growth during the time between season 1 and 2 and 5 and 6 in ''[[Series/TwentyFour 24]]''. Both eventually led to an ImportantHaircut.

Jack Bauer's huge hair and beard growth during the time between season 1 and 2 and 5 and 6 in ''[[Series/TwentyFour 24]]''. 6. Both eventually led to an ImportantHaircut.ImportantHaircut.
*** A more subtle one occurs in the series in between the first two seasons. Jack's regular hairstyle in the first season is noticeably longer than the much shorter style he commonly keeps it in for the remainder of the series, fitting the new more vicious, battle-hardened RogueAgent attitude he has from the second season onward and that's best remembered about his character.
** Tony has his head almost completely shaved and has PermaStubble to showcase his FallenHero period in Season 7.
** Bill also has a noticeable change in Season 7, going from the clean cut style he had prior to a messier hairstyle and a similar PermaStubble look, as an indicator of him going underground to stop the latest terrorist threat.
** Chloe changes her hair every season, but the most dramatic change occurs in ''[[Series/TwentyFourLiveAnotherDay Live Another Day]]'', giving her a messy, black hairstyle with dark eye shadow, making her look similar to [[Literature/TheMillenniumTrilogy Lisbeth Slander]]. It's to reflect her BrokenBird status after [[spoiler:her husband and son were killed in a car crash.]]

* In the contemporary arc of ''ArthurKingOfTimeAndSpace'', Arthur grows a beard when he becomes CEO of Excalicorp (he grows a beard about a year earlier in the other arcs, but this doesn't seem to be expository, although it does help indicate when {{flashback}}s are set).

* Storm in ''Film/XMenTheLastStand'' goes from [[LongHairIsFeminine having her hair long and loose]] to keep it in a more practical pixie cut -- as everything around her and the other X-Men goes FromBadToWorse.

* ''Film/XMen'':

Storm begins with [[LongHairIsFeminine hair which is long and loose]] in ''Film/XMen1'' and it later becomes a more practical pixie cut in ''Film/XMenTheLastStand'' goes from [[LongHairIsFeminine having her hair long and loose]] to keep it in a more practical pixie cut -- as everything around her and the other X-Men goes FromBadToWorse.FromBadToWorse. Her hairstyle gets even [[BoyishShortHair shorter]] in ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'' because she lives in a CrapsackWorld where mutants are being hunted down to extinction.
** ''Film/XMenApocalypse'': Creator/JamesMcAvoy's Professor X is finally bald, which means that his transformation into Creator/PatrickStewart's character is complete, albeit with a few tweaks to his personality because his experience in the AlternateTimeline is quite different.

Added DiffLines:

** It's subtle, but in ''Anime/CodeGeassAkitoTheExiled'', when Lelouch is brainwashed into being the Britannian strategist Julius Kingsley, he has parts of his bangs spiked out to the sides that, as Lelouch, he had tucked under the side parts. It gives him an edgier look, and goes with how Julius isn't bothered by ruthlessly [[spoiler: causing riots and endangering masses of civilians to help Britannian invade Europia]].


Added DiffLines:

* In ''Anime/{{K}}'':
** The AllPowerfulBystander Silver King, Adolf K. Weismann, has let his hair grow to past his knees in the 70 years he's been living in his airship as an immortal hermit after the trauma of [[AngstySurvivingTwin losing his sister]] in the bombing of Dresden during World War II. [[spoiler: In the end of the second season, when he returns to his body, he cuts it back to the length it was before he became immortal.]]
** In the movie that takes place between seasons 1 and 2, Kuroh wears his hair down from his usual SamuraiPonytail, while he's searching for his lost master.
