* In ''Series/{{Castle}}'' Detective Kate Beckett starts season one with short, blunt brown hair. As the seasons progress and she becomes a more obvious love interest for Richard Castle, her hair becomes more stereotypically feminine, by growing longer, more wavy, and getting blonde highlights.

Compare TimePassageBeard and BeardOfSorrow, and EyepatchAfterTimeskip. Compare ExpressiveHair for when the change happens only briefly, in reaction of a situation.

Contrast with EyepatchAfterTimeskip, a more extreme change.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/SpartacusBloodAndSand'':
** Agron in Season 1 sported long braids. [[spoiler: His brother Duro is killed]] in the finale, and in the Season 2 premiere he has now cropped his hair. It's not explained why, but it does coincide with him taking a more prominent role in the resistance.
** Crixus begins the series as a gladiator with his hair shorn into a military type haircut. As the seasons progress, it grows out longer to reflect his freedom.
** Naevia was given a TraumaticHaircut at the end of Season 1 as punishment by Lucretia, and thus sported short hair in Season 2. By Season 3, both to show that time has passed and to mark her change into a DarkActionGirl, the hair is longer.
** The prequel series shows that Lucretia's decision to start wearing red wigs was to honour her friend Gaia who was [[spoiler: cruelly murdered by Titus]]. This marks the start of her FaceHeelTurn into becoming one of the villains of the parent series.

** When rewatching old episodes, you can easily tell what season you're in according to Skye's hairstyle. In Season 1, it's shoulder-length and light brunette. In Season 2, she adds the aforementioned bangs and the color becomes a darker brunette. In Season 3, she gets the aforementioned cut to chin-length and the color goes even darker still ([[spoiler:this is also when she switches to going by her previously unknown real name of Daisy]]). In Season 4, it's back to her Season 2 style, but keeping Season 3's darker coloring.

* ''VideoGame/{{Yakuza}}'': In [[VideoGame/Yakuza1 the first game]], Kiryu's BigBadFormerFriend Akira "Nishiki" Nishikiyama has his hair slicked back to give him a smug, evil look, while in [[VideoGame/Yakuza0 the prequel]], which takes place when he was still Kiryu's loyal blood brother, his hair is neatly parted down the middle. [[VIdeoGameRemake The HD remake of the first game]], ''Yakuza: Kiwami'', shows Nishiki with both styles, with the villainous slicked back look for most of the actual game and the more heroic middle-part for both the prologue and a special series of cutscenes exclusive to ''Kiwami'' chronicling Nishiki's StartOfDarkness, with the exact moment he switches hairstyles coinciding with his official FaceHeelTurn.
