*In ''Fanfic/WithStringsAttached'', Ringo grows a small ponytail (actually, he has his hair grown magically) to indicate to the Baravadans that he should be considered a tirin (noncombatant) rather than a skahs (warrior).
*In ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World'', when the Guardians take Ringo in, they give him a buzzcut to indicate that he's one of them. After the debacle that follows, Ringo happily allows the Circle to grow his ponytail back for him.

* Aeryn Sun generally wore her hair somewhat past her shoulders on ''Series/{{Farscape}}'', and usually tied up in a neat little braid, which only made sense as she was an ActionGirl. She softens slightly as the show progresses, and when John first encounters her at the beginning of the fourth season season she has a possibly terminal condition -- and a ''sheet'' of ''very'' long, thick, and unbound black hair (which somehow manages to fit in a coldsuit like Scorpius's). Her hair returned to something approximating its original length some time after she got better, but she rarely (if ever) has her hair braided or even in a pony tail from that point on -- because even in her most BadAss moments, she's generally being badass because someone she cares about is in trouble.

* ''Series/PersonOfInterest''. After a HappyFlashback, we SmashCut to our protagonist John Reese as he is now, drunk and wearing a BeardOfSorrow in the subway, though still BadAss enough to [[MuggingTheMonster take down some thugs who try to attack him]]. After deciding to take Finch's offer, Reese shaves his permastubble, cuts his hair, and [[BadassInANiceSuit puts on a nice suit]], greatly confusing the thugs when he runs into them later.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'':
** After Margaery takes up residence in King's Landing, her signature style gradually takes over the capital's fashion from Cersei. Thus the many noblewoman extras ditch their flamboyant updos in favor of Tyrell style intricate ponytails.
** Jaime's hairstyle changes to a shorter, simpler cut in Season 4 to indicate his new-found humility and a disconnect with his earlier self.

* Carmella had a mixture of brown and blonde hair when she debuted as the TokenEvilTeammate to Enzo Amore and Big Cass. Around the time she underwent a proper HeelFaceTurn and established herself as part of their entourage for good, her hair became completely blonde.

* Wrestling/TripleH in his heyday tended to sport a beard if he was a face. He was clean shaven during his time in Evolution. Additionally his traditional long hair was cut short after his loss to Brock Lesnar. When he returned to television, he was in the role of The Authority and no longer a regular wrestler.

* Wrestling/{{Layla}} initially started out with an afro, then changed to shoulder-length hair with a thick fringe when she was in Wrestling/LayCool. After returning from injury as a face, her hair was now nearly waist-length. She lightened her hair eventually to blonde after losing the Divas' Championship but she's now back to brunette.

** When Octavia starts training to be a Grounder warrior, she adds braids to her hair to better fit in with the Grounders. Clarke changes her similarly in Season 3 as she's spending more time among the Grounders than her own people (she also dyes her hair red while trying to live anonymously, but that doesn't last long).

* Parodied on ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}''. Season 9 opens with George, Jerry, and Kramer all sporting moustaches, explained as George (out of work and extremely bored) having suggested they grow them to take "a vacation from ourselves". All three of them quickly decide they hate the moustaches and shave them off less than five minutes after the episode started.

* Several on ''Series/{{The 100}}'':

** Kane and Jaha were both clean-shaven on the Ark and kept their hair short and neat. On the Ground, their hair and beards grow out and become shaggier, as they're living more rugged lives without the positions of control they had on the Ark. Jaha goes back to having short hair, and trims his beard down to a soul patch, after he becomes an emissary for ALIE.
** In Season 3, Jasper cuts his hair down to a buzz cut, which coincides with the development of his angst-ridden and hard-drinking persona.
