* ''Manga/WanderingSon'':
** Nitori grows her hair into a bob after she starts getting bullied for [[spoiler:wearing the girl's uniform to school]]. She cuts it short, not because of a dramatic change like her friends think, but because she thought it was getting a bit long for a boy and wanted to emulate a female celebrity with a pixie cut.
** Kanako has worn pigtails her entire life. She takes them out in high school as a sign of her maturing.
** Takatsuki has always worn his hair in varying lengths ranging from pixie length to bob length. In high school he grows it out [[spoiler:which correlates with his confusion and doubts about his gender identity]].



** Kaori [[spoiler:wore GirlishPigtails and [[{{meganekko}} had glasses]]]] once but she let her hair down and [[spoiler:[[TheGlassesGottaGo started wearing contacts]]] when she [[spoiler:decided to befriend Kousei, the boy she had been admiring for years]].

* ''Film/DoctorStrange2016''. The clean-shaven Strange grows a messy BeardOfSorrow after his hands are ruined in an accident, and he loses his ability to wield a scalpel let alone a straight razor. He trims it back to a well-kept goatee after finding new purpose as a sorcerer (using an electric razor).

** Kyoko Mogami pulls one on at the end of the first chapter. She's introduced with black hair that reaches past her shoulderblades, and appears to be kind to a fault and utterly devoted to her childhood friend, Shou Fuwa, meekly waiting for him to return her romantic feelings. When he admits that he never saw her as more than a maid, Kyoko vows revenge by entering the show business, and gets her hair cut to chin-length and dyed chestnut-brown, showing her true colors as a determined, [[WomanScorned scorned woman]] that will stop at nothing to get Shou to kneel before her.
** Done in-universe for the ''[[ShowWithinAShow Dark Moon]]'' character of Mio, the role that Kyoko plays. Mio is the unfavorite daughter from a rich family, with a large facial scar, and torments her cousin. The original hairstyle was a simple HimeCut that mostly hid the scar, but when Kyoko created her own version of Mio, who is much more in-your-face with Mio's hatred for Mizuki, she got her bleached hair dyed back to black and openly displayed the facial scar.

** When Sunny was first introduced in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid4GunsOfThePatriots'', she had boyishly short hair like her mother. When we see her again a few years later in ''VideoGame/MetalGearRisingRevengeance'', Sunny has let her hair grow a little and decorated it with a hairclip adorned with a blue flower. In that time, she has grown happy and content after coming out of her shell.

* Flashbacks in ''Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid show that Elma's hair used to be a lot longer. While it's never specified why she changed it, it's worth pointing out that she was last seen with long hair [[WeUsedToBeFriends during her falling out with Tohru]].

* In ''Film/GetOut2017'' when [[spoiler: Rose is revealed to be the villain]] it's marked by her hair being worn up and out of her eyes. In fact in the very scene featuring [[spoiler: the FaceHeelTurn]] she ties her hair up.



** Phoebe went through five hair changes in the fourth season. She started off with blonde highlights that disappeared into a caramel brown as Paige was welcomed into the fold. It was dyed brown for one episode and then darker still when Cole proposed. After [[spoiler: he is possessed by the Source]] she has cut it to shoulder length. Then when [[spoiler: she becomes his queen]] it darkens to an almost black hue. Notably in season 5 when she's trying to distance herself from Cole her hair is longer. Her drastic short haircut in season 6 was a case of Alyssa Milano wanting to do something for her 30th birthday but it does overlap with Phoebe gaining empathic powers. Her hair growing longer in season 8 coincides with her desire to find love as opposed to just a baby. Before that she first dyed her hair blonde in season 3 which coincided with her romance with Cole. The colour softened and darkened the more the romance developed.

** Prue's hair starts off in a bob at the start of the series but grows longer as her powers grow. It's noticeably nearly waist-length in season 3 when she's at her most powerful. In an unrelated episode that sends the sisters to the future, Prue finds herself with blonde hair to emphasize the powerful business woman she's become.

Added DiffLines:

** In the episode "Morality Bites" the sisters visit the future and all have different hairstyles. Prue's normally black hair has turned blonde, to show that she's a powerful businesswoman now. Phoebe's shoulder-length hair has grown to waist-length along with her powers increasing. Piper's hair is curly, reflecting that she's a mother now. Amusingly this becomes prophetic of the other actresses changing their hair a lot on the show (the episode is in Season 2) while Piper's wouldn't change much.
** Phoebe, Prue and Paige reverting to their teenage selves in different unrelated episodes is accompanied by them getting thick bangs.
