* In ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'', this is inverted with [[TheLadette Amethyst]] and [[LadyOfWar Pearl.]] Amethyst has ankle-length hair, but she's by far the most crude, hedonistic and slovenly of the Gems, while Pearl's hair just reaches her chin, and she's prim and proper and the most conventionally feminine.

* Since ''Manga/WanderingSon'' is a manga heavily themed around gender and gender roles this pops up.up:



** Averted with Maho, Nitori's mom, Makoto, and Momoko who are all varying degrees of feminine but have bob styles or shorter. Chizuru is a tomboyish girl who likes wearing the boy's uniform to school but has the longest hair in the manga. Popular model and singer Maiko originally has GirlishPigtails but cuts her hair into a pixie late into the series, subverting this trope.

* ''Anime/TheHeroicLegendOfArslan'' tries to use this for [[spoiler: Etoile]]'s gender reveal, by showing her taking her long hair out of her helmet. The problem? [[SubvertedTrope Over half of the main cast]] are [[LongHairedPrettyBoy long-haired pretty boys]] ([[BadassLonghair even the tough ones like Daryun]]), so it doesn't quite get the point across smoothly.

* Shun from ''Manga/KimiToBoku'' is introduced as a LongHairedPrettyBoy so [[DudeLooksLikeALady androgynous]] that NewTransferStudent Chizuru mistakes him for a girl. He is very much InTouchWithHisFeminineSide. Subverted later when he gets a haircut due to the summer heat. His friends botched it and cut it shorter than he had wanted. Shun stays with this haircut for the rest of the series.
