** 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 ''Series/LaFemmeNikita'', the three top people in Section One, Operations, Madeline, and Michael, all get dramatic new haircuts at the beginning of season 3, signaling that Section has [[TookALevelInBadass taken a level in badass]]. Partly [[EnforcedTrope enforced]] because the actor playing Madeline had lost her hair due to chemotherapy and the actor playing Michael couldn't stand the long mane anymore and just got his hair cut between seasons. The actor playing Operations went from gray to [[BlondGuysAreEvil platinum]], presumably in solidarity with Section's sleek new look. Nikita kept her long blonde tresses.

* MarilynManson in the "Mechanical Animals" era has crimson-red hair, a typically outlandish hair colour, supposedly used to signify a theme of "alienation" (literally - the album cover portrays him as a red-haired androgynous naked alien-type-thing).
