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.

* Exploited in ''Manga/SuperGals'' when Ran dyes her hair orange. The choice of colour was deliberate, but when she got in trouble at school over it, she claimed that she was actually trying to dye her hair black (it was previously blonde with red highlight, which was also against the school rules) and that a failure in the bleaching process turned it orange.

* ''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.

* This got blended with a GreenAesop, of all things, in an episode of ''DifferentStrokes''. Kimberly tried washing/rinsing her hair with rainwater caught in a copper bowl. However, it was acid rain, which reacted with the metal and left a layer of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Verdigris verdigris]] on her hair.
