** Sakura is an interesting case. Flashbacks show that as a child she had short hair but grew it long due to rumors that Sasuke liked long haired girls. She starts the series with long hair but has an ImportantHaircut in the second arc. Sakura keeps her hair more-or-less the same length from then on, bar some a flashback where she grew out her hair between Part 1 and Part 2 and her hair being slightly longer as an adult.
** Hinata has probably had the most hairstyle changes out of any character. In childhood flashbacks Hinata had the same hairstyle she had in Part 1. Come Part 2 and Hinata has grown her hair out. The end of ''Anime/TheLastNarutoTheMovie'' show Hinata with short hair again as an adult, though it's in a different style than before. However between [[spoiler:Boruto being a toddler]] and [[spoiler:Boruto going to the ninja academy]] she grew her hair back long. Then by ''Anime/BorutoTheMovie'' her hair is back to the bob haircut she had [[spoiler:when her son was young]].

* In ''Film/TheForceAwakens'', Rey (who is around nineteen) is shown in a flashback to have had the same hairstyle since she was left on Jakku as a child. "Rey's Survival Guide" suggests she kept it in the hope that her missing family would still be able to recognize her. She's moved to a new look by ''Film/TheLastJedi'', by which point she's left Jakku behind.

* Played straight with Taki and most of ''Anime/YourName'''s characters, but averted with Mitsuha, who started out as a teen who wears folded twin braids, gets an ImportantHaircut halfway through to short, then is shown after the TimeSkip as an adult wearing her hair down but with a French braid. Also averted with Sayaka who has her hair short at the end.

** This makes a bit of a ContinuityError however (at least in the anime), as all prior instances of showing Vegeta as a child had him without his widow's peak. This was rectified as of the ''Battle of Gods'' film.

** Lampshaded in the Cell Saga, and the trope was even made to be the Saiyans' racial trait (it does not however apply to part-Saiyans). After Vegeta and Trunks use the time chamber to fit a year of training into a day, Bulma is confused to see Trunks has long hair while Vegeta looks exactly the same.

** However, in ''Anime/DragonballSuper'', after spending three years in the time chamber both Goku and Vegeta have full beards, though not particularly long ones. Which suggests that both of them must have had to shave at least a few times in their lives.

** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'':
** Flashbacks show Cloud with the same, [[AnimeHair ridiculous]] hairstyle as a child, 16-year-old and adult, but the child has hair in a paler shade of yellow. The 13-year-old Cloud, however, is shown with a ponytail (and the same big front-leaning spikes and bangs). {{Fanon}} assumes that Cloud at that time was going through a phase where he was trying to grow his hair out to look like Sephiroth. This is all justified as the graphics gave little detail with which to differentiate characters - Cloud's absurd hairstyle had been developed in the first place to keep him visible against the game's busy sets, and any significant changes would make the character unidentifiable. Averted in Cloud's chronologically later appearances in the ''Compilation'', where he has a different haircut, and for no particular symbolic reason ("[[ExpositoryHairstyleChange to show the passage of time]]", according to WordOfGod).

* Flashbacks in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' show Cloud with the same, ridiculous hairstyle as a child and teenager, except for being a paler yellow when he was little - but averted (slightly) in one scene, where a 13-year-old Cloud is shown with a ponytail (and the same big front-leaning spikes and bangs). {{Fanon}} assumes that Cloud at that time was going through a phase where he was trying to grow his hair out to look like Sephiroth. Averted from that point onwards, though - in Cloud's chronologically later appearances, he has a different haircut, apparently for the sake of it.

** The child Squall in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII'' has a dorky, childish sense of fashion to contrast with the teenage Squall's stylish, gothy look... and the same floppy 90s coolboy hairstyle.
** Averted in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'', where the child Tidus has a different haircut and even colour. By this point, the graphics had improved to the stage where it was possible to easily tell it was the same character by the face, and the designers may have been showing this off.

* ''Anime/DigimonAdventure'':
** Tai's big hair is the same in all flashbacks to his childhood. It's likewise the same in the second season. But in the DistantFinale, TK's narration says "Tai ''finally'' cut his hair."
** Yolei's hair is also tied back in the same bandanna both in flashbacks to when she's a child and in the DistantFinale.
** Averted for the others, as they all have different hairstyles in between the two seasons. Sora notably has BoyishShortHair in the first, and it has grown to her shoulders in the second.



* ''{{Film/Matilda}}'''s titular heroine sports the same shoulder-length hairstyle with bangs as both a two-year-old and a six-year-old. Complete with the same hair ribbon.



** Hermione however is always described as having the same bushy hairstyle across all seven books - save for straightening it once at the Yule Ball. Again averted in the films, as her hair is blonde in fifth year.
