* Happened to Lou in ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}''. The main plot dealt with Chuckie getting tired of getting unwanted attention from his red hair, so he used Lou's black hair dye. By the end of the episode, exposure to the sun turns both their hair orange. While Chuckie is thrilled to be a redhead again because no one seems to know he exist without it, Grandpa is less than happy. Didi chalks it up to buying hair dye off of an infomercial.

* Chilean writer Creator/IsabelAllende told in one of her memoirs that when she was young she tried to bleach her hair blonde, but for some reason she ended with green hair. Rosa, one of the characters in ''Literature/TheHouseOfTheSpirits'', was inspired by that experience.

* ''Literature/AnneOfGreenGables'': Anne tries to dye her hair "a beautiful raven-black". Unfortunately, [[JustifiedTrope she buys the dye from a dubious source and red hair is known to do strange things with dye (not to mention the local soil contains so much iron oxide (aka rust) that the roads are red, presumably the rust in the wellwater has played a part as well in this reaction)]]. Her hair turns a hideous bronze-green, and Marilla is forced to cut it ''very'' short. Due to morals at the time, there was definitely AnAesop against vanity in this chapter, and Anne learns to accept the fact that she has red hair.

* In the late 1950s or early 1960s, there was a Saturday morning show for pre-teens and young adults with a ''Series/WhatWouldYouDo'' theme. In one episode, a girl of about twelve is an initiate in a club called the Rats (perhaps "Lemmings" might have been too obvious). When the Rats vote to dye their hair as a badge of membership, the girl does so, accompanied by parents and siblings giving her the JumpOffABridgeRebuttal. Her hair comes out ''grey''. Horrified, she conceals it beneath a scarf, and when the club president comes over to check out her dye job, she screams that membership in the society has made her "an old woman before my time", dramatically rips off the scarf and tears down the homemade Rats banner on the wall. The leader does not take it well.

* This was used to explain Princess Sally's varying hair/fur coloring in the early issues of ''ComicBook/SonicTheHedgehog'': during a mission, Sally fell into a vat of chemicals. Though she came out unscathed, attempts to wash the chemicals out led to her fur and hair being miscolored (from red hair and brown fur, to blonde hair and red fur, to black hair and pink fur and back to red and brown).

This is a SubTrope of CosmeticCatastrophe specific to hair coloring. Also compare NeverTrustAHairTonic. KaleidoscopeHair can occur if Alice keeps re-dyeing her hair. ElderlyBlue-HairedLady is a specific trope for elderly ladies who's attempt to turn ugly yellow hair into graceful grey hair via blue dye results in blue hair instead.
