See also ImportantHaircut. Compare SlipknotPonytail, where one's hair goes ''au naturale'' because they are being badass, and WildHair, where it is normally worn loose. Also compare ShakingHerHairLoose when the hair is dramatically undone on camera.

Added DiffLines:

* A variation occurs in a sidestory of ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'' with Elite Four member Lorelei, who normally wears her hair in a ponytail. [[spoiler: In this case, it's more of a LetsGetDangerous moment since she keeps a Key Stone for Mega Evolution hidden in her hair clasp.]]

Added DiffLines:

* This trope occurs sometimes in women's sports, such as UsefulNotes/MixedMartialArts. Most female fighters with long hair wear it in a BoringButPractical bun during bouts (for a number of reasons), and when they let their hair down outside of the octagon, they look downright glamorous.

Sometimes the letting down is actually done expressly to make the character look more attractive, with existing admirers having their desires heightened while those who hadn't noticed them before suddenly find them to have been BeautifulAllAlong. This is likely related to the medieval notion that long hair was an indication of the owner's sexual prowess and concupiscence, and in fact incited others to arousal if it were not hidden, concealed, or worn up in some fashion.
