* Creator/AaronAllston's ''DocSidhe'' has three divisions of [[OurElvesAreDifferent people]] on the Fair World: light (blond whites), dark (dark-haired whites), and dusky (blacks, Asians, Native Americans, etc.). That's right; the difference in hair color among whites is considered more significant than the differences in skin color among the duskies.

* Used interestingly in ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'' by Creator/BrandonSanderson. Hair color can be a very strong indication of nationality - black for Alethi, red for the horn-eaters and the people of Jah Keved, who interbred with them, and so on. In addition, cross-breeding between these groups results in hair with streaks of several colors, rather than a change in the colors themselves - the son of an Alethi man and an Iriali might have golden blond hair with black streaks, for example, or vice versa. This also ironically means that the lowborn castes have purer hair that fits their nation's ideal of beauty; they have less opportunity to meet and marry foreigners.

The Alethi have black for Alethi, hair, the Horneaters red for the horn-eaters and the people of (red is also common in Jah Keved, who interbred Keved because they often mix with them, the Horneater Peaks), the Iriali gold (not blonde, ''gold''), and so on. In addition, cross-breeding between these groups results on. The interesting thing is that the color breeds true according to how pure someone's bloodline is. Cross-breeding will result in hair with streaks of several colors, rather than a change in the colors themselves - the colors.

** Lunarians in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV'' all have white hair... although the 3D version {{Jossed}} this by depicting PosthumousCharacter Kluya as having black hair.

* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyCrystalChroniclesTheCrystalBearers'', about half of the members of the Selkie tribe, including all four major characters from that tribe, have red hair. Most of the other Selkies have blond hair. No non-Selkie with red hair exists in the game, so red hair is pretty much a "red flag" alerting you that a character is a Selkie. Blond hair, however, leaves an individual's tribe ambiguous; the protagonist has blond hair and is not a Selkie.

* A Music/{{Vocaloid}} song series Franchise/EvilliousChronicles, particularly in ''The Story of Evil'' makes several mentions of the Green Country, the people's defining aspect being thick green hair. Became a point of FantasticRacism in "Daughter of White": the singer is a social outcast due to having white hair instead of green, and [[spoiler: survives the Green Country's massacre because the Princess of Evil ordered that everyone with green hair be executed]].
