* Almost ''all'' of the ladies on ''Series/TheWalkingDead'' have long hair that is always worn loose and immaculately cut, styled, and taken care of, despite the lack of grooming products in the apocalypse and the sweltering Georgia heat. Not to mention the hordes of zombies that could easily snatch a survivor ByTheHair. In later seasons, even some of the men have impractically long hair, such as Daryl and Jesus.

* Nadine has her hair styled to resemble insect legs. That doesn't look too fun to maintain.

* Most of the women of ''Series/{{ER}}'' were frequently seen wearing their hair loose. While not strictly forbidden, most RealLife female medical professionals don't wear their hair like this and will advise against this--aside from the fact that hair isn't sterile and could contaminate a wound, loose hair can easily be grabbed onto by an unruly patient or soiled by the various body fluids flying around.

** Arnold's spiked-hairstyle is theoretically possible, but he is never shown using any gels or mousse to style it. In "Arnold's Hat" for example, he simply combs it straight up and it magically stays there.

* Jocelyn from ''Film/AKnightsTale'' has a lot of 80's punk-inspired hairstyles -- one of which included her hair being highlighted purple -- for a woman who lives in freakin' 12[[superscript:th]] century England, but it's understandable since the whole film is based around anachronisms.

** Helga's hairstyle is simple pigtails, but they are shaped like brooms, somehow stick straight out and have no visible ties or holders keeping them in place. She is also never shown doing anything to maintain them and they stay in place almost all the time.
** Likewise with Gerald's exaggerated hi-top fade. It gets soaking wet in ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnoldTheJungleMovie'' and all he has to do is wring it out and it returns to form.

* {{Lampshade|Hanging}}d in ''Franchise/DragonBall'', where it's explained that full-blooded Saiyans like Goku and Vegeta keep the same hairstyle from where they were born.
** Goku's even had his hair chopped off, only for it to return to normal in the very next panel (or so).

* All series of ''Franchise/YuGiOh'' have protagonists with ridiculous hair. ''Anime/YuGiOhGX'' has Judai/Jaden, who has the mildest of the five protagonists. It's still kinda weird looking and asymmetrical.



* ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'': Setsuna's hair probably isn't outright impossible. However, she has bangs on only one side of her face, a weird spiky ponytail on one side while the other lets that hair just hang down naturally. And judging by her picture on the Negima character page, there appears to be another random hairband on the '[[FashionableAsymmetry normal]]' haircut side of her head.



* Look at most of the characters in ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'', along with the hair color: they're downright ridiculous! A good example would be Jessie's gravity-defying hair that curls only at the end and may be used as a blunt instrument.
** Iris's ridiculously long, rug-like hair. Its large enough that Axew hides in it rather then going into a Pokeball.
** Team Flare's ice-cream cone hairstyles (that also unfortunately has a rather... scatological look to them)



* Really, just about ANY film (and it must happen in more than half of them) set in the Western world from about the late Middle Ages to TheTwenties, that shows women with very long hair (which is correct for most of them) going round with it all completely loose. The practical reasons that they would NEVER do this should be obvious (especially as it's quite hard to wash long hair without running water, let alone shampoo), but it appears even in films that otherwise flash their "period detail" and "grittiness".






* There's an episode in ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' in which a clone of Riker had spent eight years stranded on a lifeless planet, in a building that was basically an abandoned warehouse. When he's finally rescued by the Enterprise, he's sporting a groomed hairstyle as if he had just stepped out of a hairdresser's studio, not to mention he's also rocking a perfectly trimmed beard. Probably an EnforcedTrope due to Creator/JonathanFrakes ActingForTwo.

* Speaking of Star Trek the Original Series featured some truly insane 'dos' on the heads of female officers and crew. Somewhere on the Enterprise 1701 there was a top notch beauty parlor. As for the ''Aliens''!!!

* ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'': The protagonist, Lloyd, has a spiked hairstyle which curls over to his left; partially lampshaded when a male NPC complains that Lloyd has the same hair style. It's more or less averted with the the rest of the crew having reasonable hairstyles; the brother-and-sister magic user pair have white-blue hair with a cowlick for her and silver-white hair with two long tails for him, the female ninja's concession to tidiness is pulling her hair back, the little girl has pig tails. Two of the male characters have fairly untidy long hair. The other improbable hair style is the mercenary's, which seems to grow in spikes.
** Which makes a twisted kind of sense. [[spoiler: Lloyd and the mercenary are [[LukeIAmYourFather related.]]]]

* ComicBook/SpiderMan: ComicBook/NormanOsborn has what appear to be horizontal corn-rows of brown and red hair. It's not entirely clear what this is supposed to actually represent but even in universe characters repeatedly appear unable to figure what he did to his hair.
** Newer drawings of his son Harry suggest that it may be intended to be very tight auburn curls.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Jem}}''. Being a show about a band, set in the 80's, it's essentially ''required'' that most of the main characters have huge, wildly teased manes (though the bright Anime colors are harder to explain). With Jerrica herself, her enormous pink hair is effortless and maintainence-free, since it's a holographic projection.
