* In the utterly bemusing final episode of ''Series/ThePrisoner'', Leo [=McKern's=] Number Two, who had appeared to die at the climax of the previous episode, is resurrected using some kind of hi-tech machine that also significantly reduces his hair length and cuts his facial hair down from a full beard to a toothbrush moustache. This was a case of RealLifeWritesThePlot, as [=McKern=] hadn't expected to be called back and had changed his look for another role. It's still one of the [[GainaxEnding less confusing elements]] of the episode.

* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX'', [[WhiteMagicianGirl Princess Garnet]] goes into a period of mourning after her coronation as Queen of Alexandria is interrupted by an invasive attack by the BigBad -- a piece of unfinished business she left hanging when she went home to assume the throne. Eventually, she learns to put the incident, and her [[ItsAllMyFault sense of shame over it]], behind her. As an expression of her newfound devotion to give her all to finding and stopping the BigBad, for her people and for every kingdom in the world, she borrows one of [[TheHero Zidane's]] daggers -- which have a previously established significance in her sense of identity[[note]]Many fans of Final Fantasy remember her more as her alias "Dagger", which she adopts after the "abduction".[[/note]] - and uses it to give herself an Important Haircut. In a slight twist, her hair has grown back to its original length by the end of the game, although the symbolic weight of the Important Haircut doesn't seem to be diminished by it.

* The Kenny Young and the Eggplants song [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nHyTN_Q34FM Randolph Got a Haircut]] portrays this trope in an almost cosmic sense, crediting the titular coiffure with the end of structural unemployment and a resurgence of indie music, not to mention improved climate.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventureDiamondIsUnbreakable'', every time Koichi Hirose evolves his Stand to a new ACT, it's accompanied by a new hairstyle. He starts the series with his hair slicked down, but it becomes messier once he unlocks Echoes [=ACT1=], then he cuts it into a flat-top when he evolves Echoes to [=ACT2=] (rather amusingly stopping in the middle of a battle with his [[{{Yandere}} psycho stalker]] to cut his hair), then his hair somehow takes on a style of its own accord that can only be described as '[[Franchise/DragonBall Super Saiyan]]' when he finally achieves [=ACT3=].

* The title character of ''Film/{{Sabrina}}'' loses her ponytail after a classmate at culinary school encourages her to act more self-confident and worldly, in order to win the heart of her crush. In the remake, Sabrina doesn't have a ponytail, but a huge mop that conceals her face. It's no wonder said crush genuinely doesn't recognize her when he first sees post-snip.
