* ''{{Literature/Timeline}}'': Female time travelers with short hair must use wigs because people in the 1300s strongly held this view. The only women with short hair had it due to a disgrace, or punish for heresy. Passing as a man by cutting your hair short was also punishable by death at the time.

* {{minus}} invokes this [[http://www.kiwisbybeat.com/minus36.html here]] -- she is mistaken for a boy, and consequently grows her hair (previously a bowl cut) long and wavy, wears an ankle-length dress, adds [[HairDecorations a bow]], [[PinkMeansFeminine pink]], to her IdiotHair, gives herself FertileFeet, and makes a couple butterflies for good measure.

* Averted in the first three ''Franchise/{{Shrek}}'' movies, where all the male characters except for Shrek have long hair. Understandable because Shrek is supposed to take place in the middle ages and those were common hairstyles during that period.

* 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.

** Nitori is a [[{{transsexual}} transgender]] girl who likes baking and is quite feminine. Almost every time she envisions herself living as a girl she has long hair past her shoulders. Her hair is cropped short but she buys a long haired wig, when she starts going out as a girl. She ends up growing her hair into a BobHaircut in middle school but won't grow it further due to social acceptance issues with boys and long hair. [[spoiler:In high school she buys a new wig, this time a bob]]

* Any character that has been portrayed by Creator/DeborahAnnWoll has sported her long shoulder-length hair, including Jessica Hamby on ''Series/TrueBlood'' and Karen Page in ''Series/Daredevil2015''.
* This trope applies to any character that's been played by Creator/KrystenRitter, most notable Series/JessicaJones2015.



* Real-life application of the tropes LettingHerHairDown, ShakingHerHairLoose and SlipknotPonytail. Having the hair tied up hides it and thus letting it down reveals more of their femininity.

* In both versions of ''Film/TheParentTrap'', the tomboyish twin has shorter hair than the GirlyGirl.



* Jo in ''Literature/LittleWomen'' sells her hair to pay for a train ticket. As she's a 19th century {{Tomboy}}, her long hair was her "one beauty" (according to her sister Amy) because it added to her femininity.



* Inverted in ''Series/OnceUponATime'' where the most gentle and feminine of the women Mary Margaret has the shortest hair in the cast - and her Enchanted Forest counterpart Snow White (who was an ActionGirl) had long hair. Likewise tough cookie Emma is probably the least feminine character and she has long blonde hair.

* Inverted in ''VideoGame/KantaiCollection'' with the Nagato sisters. Nagato, who has more masculine traits, is the one with long hair, while the more feminine Mutsu wears it short.



* Anvil, of ''Webcomic/GrrlPower'', is dangerously susecptible to the trope. WordOfGod says that she keeps her hair very long due to some insecurity about her femininity, which in turn is due to her exceptional height and formidable musculature. However, this may not be a good choice for a superhero -- and a brawler at that. She's smart enough to tie her hair up securely if she knows that a fight is coming up, but she doesn't always get the chance and [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1493 at least one opponent takes full advantage of this.]]
