* ''PiratesOfTheCaribbean'': Jack Sparrow's famous hair may be long and wild, but it's also very clean. On sailing ships, fresh water is too precious to wash with, and soap/shampoo don't work in salt water.

** Also, Elizabeth spending most of the last film on sailing ships with her long hair loose, in high winds. Her RabbleRousingSpeech should have left her head practically tied to the rigging. Oddly enough Elizabeth also averts this in places, having her hair tied back in BraidsOfAction
* Subverted in ''RoryOShea'' was here. Rory arrives in the care home with intricate spikes in his hair, which seems quite impressive for a guy who can only move his index finger. Then after he gets a bath, the matron refuses to do his hair for him. When he gets Michael to spike it for him, it's considerably less elaborate than it was at the start of the film.

* ''Literature/SafeHaven'': The heroine gives herself a perfect haircut and dye job while fleeing from her abusive husband. While one could stretch their imagination enough to assume that she could pull off the haircut, to dye ones hair from brunette to blonde takes considerable skill and time. There's no way she could have pulled off the salon-perfect job we see at all, much less in the brief time frame given. (This problem arises from the fact that film is pulling an AdaptationDyeJob to accommodate the blonde actress playing the role; in the book she goes from blonde to brunette, much easier for even a non-professional to do).

*** Cloud Strife has an [[AnimeHair extreme hairstyle]] that he maintains '''perfectly''' through rain, snow, desert heat, motorcycle riding, Chocobo racing, RandomEncounters, falling hundreds of feet down through a solid roof, spending years being subjected to medical torture in PeopleJars, being sucked through an underground stream across the whole of the world and washing up on the beach having gone [[AngstComa so insane that he cannot even sit up straight in a chair]], and wearing a wig. {{Justified}} as the game's primitive graphics allowed little else for identification of the character, and because Cloud's unique hairstyle makes the character model continually stand out even against the game's busy backdrops. In ''VideoGame/CrisisCore'', where the graphics are much better, Cloud's hair is shown plastered down the final scene - in a shocking image that's supposed to show Cloud at the point of losing his entire identity - but even then it doesn't budge that much.

** Selphie in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII'' was, according to WordOfGod, deliberately designed to have an impractical hairstyle, to reflect her personality.


Added DiffLines:

** Yuna in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX-2'' has a reasonable (by ''FF'' standards) spiky bob, except that at the back of her neck is a really long lock of hair that goes all the way to her feet. Somehow it grew from shoulder-length to heel-length in the space of two years.

* In general, there are almost no characters in the entire medium who have armpit hair, whether male, female, living in a world where they are on the run from zombies, etcetera. Even grossout scenes like the full-frontal nudity in ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoIVTheLostAndTheDamned'' show no armpit hair, no matter what other kind of hair is on display. This is partly because armpits are positioned at an awkward angle for a character model and are difficult to texture realistically, and partly because there's a general belief that no-one wants to see it. When there is an exception (such as Olga's armpit stubble in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2'') you bet the gamer reaction will be extreme {{Squick}}.

*** Zack has a similar extreme, spiky hairstyle. His hair was toned down considerably in later renders.
*** And then there's Sephiroth, who not only manages to not strangle himself on his extremely long hair while fighting, but manages to keep it perfectly smooth and untangled at all times. ''VideoGame/Crisis Core'' mentions in a secret email that he uses a special Shinra blend of shampoo and conditioner made especially for him. He uses a whole bottle each time, and there's one of twelve different smells each time he shakes his head.

* Garnet from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX'' is able to cut off her long hair into a perfectly styled bob with one slice of a dagger while her eyes are closed. Youtube anyone cutting their hair off with a blade and you'll find that no matter how sharp it is, it's impossible to cut through hair on one stroke. Garnet's hair also rapidly grows back to its original length in time for the game's ending which is only less than a year later.
* The Beauties from ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid4'' can't leave their suits for more than five minutes. All have beautiful, trendily-styled hair. One's even a peroxide blond with no visible roots.
