* A FunnyBackgroundEvent in one of ComicBook/{{X 23}}'s early appearances in the ''ComicBook/{{X-Men}}'' books: While Psylocke is casually and expertly braiding her hair preparing for a coming fight, Laura can be seen behind her struggling to emulate her. Once the fighting actually starts it's revealed she failed miserably and settled for a messy ponytail instead. Her hair in general tends to end up messy and out of place since she normally wears it long and loose (apparently she never quite gets the hang of braiding it).

* ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'' has Harry, as per canon. His bedhead is spectacular, his post-shower hair even more so, to the point where Carol bursts out laughing.

** Hermione, also as per canon, though it gets a little more manageable with time. [[spoiler: This likely has something to do with the fact that she's the daughter of the more manageably curly/wavy haired Wanda Maximoff.]]
* Whenever ''Anime/KillLaKill'' fanartist Herokick draws Ryuuko, they tend to draw her with messy hair, as illustrated [[http://herokick.tumblr.com/image/139948433742]] and [[http://40.media.tumblr.com/866d06a6bb9e367f9be2a8800377a86d/tumblr_nqpsk7ooB51smyvt8o2_1280.png]]. It serves a contrast between her and Satsuki, as the latter's hair always neat, suiting her rather prim, proper, and practical personality, while Ryuuko's hair alludes to her wild personality.

* Moritz Stiefel from Theatre/SpringAwakening is almost always portrayed as having messy hair, as befitting his anxious, scattered thoughts. PlayedWith in the Deaf West Production, where Moritz's hair is slicked down but his Inner Voice (who represents his inner desires/true self to a certain extent) still has the trademark hair.

* ''[[VideoGame/AdvancedVariableGeo Advanced V.G.]]'': Satomi appears the same as she does in her anime portrayal - with her hair being short and mussy, [[PerpetualPoverty for the same reason.]] Though she never seems concerned about her appearance.

* Pinkie Pie, resident {{Cloudcuckoolander}} of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' is permanently knotted and messy, even after being ironed flat by a hairstylist (it repoofs in seconds) or being trimmed (It ''grows back instantly''). It becomes perfectly straight and lifeless when she's depressed, though.

Even when she does make an effort, it just results in a particularly messy bun piled on top of her head. It definitely helps establish her as a quirky, {{Adorkable}} character.
