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.

* A variant is seen in ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles'' with Violet. She hides behind her hair for most of the movie, but when she gains confidence in herself and her powers, begins to wear it back.
* Inverted in ''WesternAnimation/CloudyWithAChanceOfMeatballs'', where Sam puts her hair *up* and her glasses *on* when she loosens up.
* Twice inverted in ''Disney/{{Tangled}}'', since it was after a long time with Flynn that she put her hair up, and let it back down [[spoiler:after returning to Mother Gothel]].



* Jane Porter from ''Disney/{{Tarzan}}'' is only seen with her hair up at the beginning of the film. After her friendship with Tarzan starts, it's almost always shown down. This reflects how she's becoming accustomed to the jungle.



* In ''Disney/TheLittleMermaidIIReturnToTheSea'', Ariel wears her hair tied up in a bun whenever she is on dry land, symbolizing how much more stern and strict she is. When Triton transforms her back into a mermaid, her hair comes undone and falls loose freely. After the ordeal is over, Ariel is shown wearing her hair down as a human to reflect her change in character.



* In ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'', Elsa first wore her hair in a tight braid which she put into a bun (a metaphor for her tightly wound, suppressed nature). After letting go of her anxiety and deciding to no longer hide what she is, she tousles her hair and lets her braid hang over her shoulder.

** Harley later learns that it ''is'' deliberate, when s/he meets Delta Spike outside of the labs; Elain (Delta Spike) goes on to explain that she felt she needed to look smart and competent if she was to get the male-dominated Workshop [[MyEyesAreUpHere paying attention to her work instead of her body]].

** Harley later learns that it ''is'' deliberate, when s/he meets Delta Spike when she is wearing her usual costume. The first time they met was at the Whateley Weapons Fair, a swap-meet for selling all the different AppliedPhlebotinum toys the [[GadgeteerGenius Gadgeteers]] and [[MadScientist Devisors]] had cooked up over the school year, and she thought she needed to look smart and competent to sell her devises. Harley concludes that, given the ratio of males to females at the show, she would have done better if she'd worn a swimsuit instead.
