* Akane Tendo from ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'' believed, having longer hair than her sister Kasumi would make her more feminine than her. Then she gets an accidently TraumaticHairCut by Ryoga and Ranma.

* Played with in ''Literature/KatIncorrigible''; Kat cuts her hair short in an attempt to disguise as boy. When that plan fails, she is stuck with the haircut. Her stepmother hates it, deeming it very impoper for a girl, her father doesn't mind, and another woman kindly states that short hair is now the latest London fashion and that Kat looks like one of the women in the fashion magazines.

A WholesomeCrossdresser will often, but not always, have long hair either naturally or as a wig. Mostly to help creating a feminine look and if not it will sure give even if they just like their hair that way. Similar for several sister tropes.

* Princess Peach from ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' has long blonde hair and is the [[PrincessClassic gi]][[PinkMeansFeminine rl]][[PrincessesPreferPink iest]] character in the entire franchise. It especially stands out due when she's compared to TomboyPrincess Daisy, who has shorter hair post-redesign (though it's still medium length).

Added DiffLines:

* ''{{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.

* 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.
