* {{Lampshade|Hanging}}d in ''Franchise/DragonBall'', where it's explained that full-blooded Saiyains like Goku and Vegeta keep the same hairstyle from where they were born.

* As the DVDCommentary mentions, it's highly unlikely that ''[[LightNovel/{{Baccano}} Baccano!'s]]'' Graham Spector, a 1930's American mechanic[=/=]TalkativeLoon, would ever be able to get or maintain that J-rocker haircut of his..

* ''BlackButler'': While mundane by Anime standards, most characters' haircuts would be ridiculous in Victorian England. Though Sebastian's [[{{Bishonen}} Bishie]] bangs are [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] in the manga, Undertaker's, Druitt's and Edgar Redmond's ''fabulous'' 'do's are [[UnusuallyUninterestingSight Unusually Uninteresting Sights]].

* ''ClashOfTheTitans'' (2010): Perseus manages to maintain a ''buzzcut'' while travelling the world for months on end. It's worth noting he was originally going to start out with long hair and would get the buzz as part of an ImportantHaircut. But the scenes didn't look too good on camera so they were scrapped.
* In TheEighties version of ''ClashOfTheTitans'', Harry Hamlin sported a dreadful 80s mullet uncharacteristic for Ancient Greece.

** Subverted in ''WesternAnimation/BarbieAsRapunzel''. Rapunzel this time only has hair that goes down to the floor (which is possible in real life depending on the person's genes) and the maintenance is believable because she is only locked in the tower for a number of days - rather than her whole life like the original fairytale.

* Takeshi Kitano's version of ''{{Zatoichi}}'' is blonde. Very, very blonde.
* In ''Film/{{MarieAntoinette}}'', before she goes to France, she is very clearly seen with a modern hairstyle, complete with hair cut in layers and multiple shades of highlights. The film uses devices like this and Marie wearing modern converse sneakers to show much of a fish out of water she is.

* ''Anime/SailorMoon'': The {{odango}}s and her relatives stay incredibly pristine throughout their battles. There is only one notable episode where Usagi's hair is destroyed by battle. The war-torn appearance of all the senshi at the end of the third season was to accentuate how tough this battle was. Other than that, there's usually no damage done to their ridiculous up dos during battle. Any [[{{cosplay}} cosplayer]] can tell you that those buns take a pack of hairpins and a can of hairspray to stay in for half a day. Forget the acrobatics.

* SpiderMan: ComicBook/{{Norman Osborn}} 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.

* {{Spaceballs}} plays with the trope (as it does with so many) with Princess Vespa. When she first appears, she has what look like Leia-style hair buns (under lace and flowers as part of her wedding outfit). When she's fleeing the wedding (and the planet) she appears to have rather larger hair buns (and there's rock music playing in the background). When Dot Matrix talks to her, she pulls off the hair buns (which are part of her headphones) so she can hear properly and the music comes into the foreground. She has a normal hairstyle for the period the film was made until she gets back into her full wedding outfit at the end.

** Notably averted by the Fourth Doctor, who, when he regenerates, has his hair and facial hair in the same rollered bouffant style with short sideburns (going only just below the cheekbone) that the Third Doctor had been wearing at the time of his death. His hair gets messed up while he's in sickbay, and he doesn't bother to put it back, which becomes his [[MessyHair trademark]] [[QuirkyCurls hairstyle]]. He also has to slowly grow his sideburns into their usual mouth-length shape over the course of the story, although they grow much faster than normal facial hair would. ({{Justified}} as he has just regenerated and his physical processes are shown to be in overdrive, with his heartbeat racing).

* ''WesternAnimation/{{The Real Ghostbusters}}'': The most paranormal and unexplained element is undoubtedly Egon's hair.

* Alice's fluffy triangle in ''{{WesternAnimation/Dilbert}}''. It was lampshaded in the episode about [[MillenniumBug [=Y2K=]]] when Catbert (the Evil Director Of Human Resources) points out that she spends a ''lot'' of time doing her hair and makeup in the morning.
* Claire's square bun hairstyle in ''{{WesternAnimation/Motorcity}}''. And then there's her new do in "Julie and the Amazons" . . .

* The contestants on ''RuPaul's Drag Race'' often fashion elaborate wigs as part of their drag ensembles. Yara Sofia from season three was particularly known for this.

** Subverted in ''BarbieAsRapunzel''. Rapunzel this time only has hair that goes down to the floor (which is possible in real life depending on the person's genes) and the maintenance is believable because she is only locked in the tower for a number of days - rather than her whole life like the original fairytale.
