** Connie had waist-length RapunzelHair. However, in Season 5, she has now cut her hair to be short-length with bangs. This change happened right after [[spoiler:Steven's return from Homeworld, and their ensuing fight over the aftermath of him surrendering himself.]]

* In one of the ''Anime/TenchiMuyo'' manga, Ayeka ends up changing her hair from the usual purple and straight style she's usually seen in to the light blue and curled similar to what Sasami has, though only temporary, as Sasami was homesick. As it turned out, the blue hair and curled hair was ''Ayeka's real style'', inheritef from her ActionMom Misaki; she had it modified like that in her belief that Yosho would fall in love with her more if she resembled the person ''he'' thought was the perfect woman - his mother, Queen Funaho. She later states that, despite falling for Tenchi now, she'd rather keep it as that purple style due to the fact that she ''actually'' enjoys it now.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/BabylonFive'' has Delenn, who changes her hairdo towards the end of season two. The change in hairstyle comes along with a new and more secure role as councelor and war leader, whereas her former hairstyle was accompanied by a feeling of insecurity regarding her new "human" features.

** Ever since Tatsuki ran out the bullies that cut her hair by force, Orihime has kept her hair long and with hairpins (which are also [[EmpathicWeapon the source of]] [[BarrierWarrior her powers]]). After the first TimeSkip she stops wearing the pins (using them as lapel accesories instead) and switches to a HimeCut. Midway through the last arc she begins using the clips again [[spoiler: and in the last chapter, when she and Ichigo are HappilyMarried, she ditches the pins for good and uses a MotherlySidePlait.]]

* 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.
