* 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.

* Agent J from ''{{Elite Beat Agents}}'', whose hair looks like some of it got caught in a candyfloss machine. [[http://media.giantbomb.com/uploads/0/3715/788744-fff_large.jpg See for yourself.]]

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

* ''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.

* As an OrcusOnHisThrone figure in Music/PoetsOfTheFall's video for "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=di7NMssrqsE Daze]]," MonsterClown Hamartia's black hair is elaborately styled to mimic a [[HappyHarlequinHat jester's hat]], with heavy braids for flaps, and trimmed with [[FeatherMotif black feathers]] and bells.

* ''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.

* Sora from ''KingdomHearts''. Seriously, how much gel does that guy use? His hair keeps its shape ''underwater''. In fact, most of the cast are examples.

* 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 Jonathan Frakes ActingForTwo.

* Tao Jun from ''ShamanKing'' does not seem to obey the rules of hair as they apply to humans. Her hair style doesn't look like it would stand up to weeks of tromping through the wild west, and yet it does. When she has her hair down, it magically becomes several inches shorter. Finally, there's a scene where we actually see her doing her hair, something that should take a good day and a half, what with all of the glueing, hairspraying, clamping in place until it dries, and praying for the whole thing to stay up. Three hairclips, five seconds, and she's all finished, spikes included.

* ''KodomoNoOmocha'': Sana's mother, whose hair is a combination of this, NiceHat, and miniature mobile theme park for the family's pet squirrel.
* ''TigerAndBunny'''s Kotetsu has a very distinctive beard that, in real life, would take entirely too much time and skill with a razor for [[TheKlutz a guy like Kotetsu]] to manage. (Have ''you'' ever shaved your facial hair to resemble a cat?) Sunrise seems to acknowledge this, as Antonio has occasionally declared him a "beard narcissist" due to the amount of effort he puts into maintaining it.

* Look at most of the characters in ''{{Pokemon}}'', along with the hair color, they are down right ridiculous! A good example would be Jessie's gravity defying hair that curls only at the end.
