** In "Too Much Monkey Business," Wendy's pet monkey sneaks into DJ's room and messes with the dish of hair dye that DJ is about to use on Kimmy. As a result, DJ dyes Kimmy's hair a shockingly bright shade of orange instead of the subtle color she intended. Unlike typical examples of this trope, though, Kimmy ends up really liking the color.

* In one of the subplots of ''Deadbeat Poets Society'' from ''WesternAnimation/{{Sixteen}}'', two of the clones, Kristen and Kirsten, dye their hair brown (their natural hair color) for some reason. However, after they see Jen and Caitlin wearing blonde wigs (which they're using to spy on Wyatt), they decide to dye their hair back to its original color--but unfortunately, they accidentally turn their hair green due to accidentally over-processing the hair dye they used (at least that's what they assume). Nikki helps her coworkers by giving them the blonde wigs her friends used, which the Clones can wear until the dye wears off.

* ''Literature/AnneOfGreenGables'': Anne tries to dye her hair "a beautiful raven-black". Unfortunately, [[JustifiedTrope she buys the dye from a dubious source, the local soil contains so much iron oxide (aka rust) that the roads are red so who knows what's in the well water, and red hair is known to do strange things with dye to boot]]. 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.

* The (mildly anti-)Soviet classic ''TheTwelveChairs'', by Ilya Ilf and Evgeniy Petrov, has a scene where one of the protagonists tries to dye his hair and eyebrows and mustache a darker color, but the dye is counterfeit and ends up turning him a rabid green color. A second attempt with another dye of no higher quality results in multi-colored hair. The poor sod ends up having to shave his head completely devoid of hair.

Alice wants to dye her hair black. Or bleach it blonde. Whichever naturally occuring color she wanted, it turns out a very different and thoroughly ridiculous color--usually green, though other strange hues pop up. [[TraumaticHaircut Sometimes, the only thing to do is to shave the head and let the hair grow back.]]

* 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.
