** In seasons 3 and 4, Buffy's hair is often crimped whenever she is NotHerself, usually due to a spell. This occurs in The Zeppo (when the entire format of the show is upended), Beer Bad (when magic beer causes her to become a cavewoman), Something Blue (when she falls under a spell and gets engaged to Spike), Who Are You? (when she and Faith have switched bodies), Superstar (which takes place in Jonathan's alternate universe), and Where The Wild Things Are (when she and Riley can't stop having sex because of a haunted presence).

* Subverted in ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'': after Buffy has sex with Spike for the first time and regrets it, she butchers her own hair because he had complimented it. After this cut, she's in a salon trying to get it repaired. She also quickly gets back together with Spike, as it takes more than a haircut to change your life when you're suffering from chronic depression.

** Female recruits usually don't go through this, though a few military academies, while not ''shaving'' female "knobs," will nevertheless severely crop their hair down to an inch or less. West Point, however, bobs female cadets' hair quickly but with care about how it will look when the students are not at school.

West Point, however, bobs female cadets' hair quickly but with care about how it will look when the students are not at school. A lot of academies actually advise female cadets to have their hair cut ''before'' arriving, in case they don't like the one the barber gives them. This is in contrast to male recruits, who are expected to get them there and then.

** Rumplestiltskin/Gold cuts his off in season 6. His reasons in the show are a bit unclear, probably because his actor RobertCarlyle had to cut it all off for Trainspotting 2 and the OUAT writers had to come up with a reason why. Belle suggests it's because he's tired of seeing the same face in the mirror, and that he wants to change.

* In [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11767589/3/The-Fourth-Apprentice "The Fourth Apprentice"]] Sarutobi makes Sakura do this earlier than canon, and justifies it by showing how an enemy can grab and use it against her due to its length. It also goes to show that Sakura no longer cares about her looks and figure as she becomes more focused on her training.
