* Professor Quirrell in ''Literature/HarryPotterAndThePhilosophersStone''. And it's not a usual example, [[spoiler: ''he has a face on the back of his head.'' Not just any face either; it's the series wide BigBad.]]

* The Literature/FatherBrown story ''The Purple Wig'' revolves around this. A duke is famous for a purple wig, which he claims is to hide the hideously deformed ear that is the mark of shame for his family's crimes. Father Brown points out that, if he really wanted to hide the thing, he would wear a wig of an actual hair color and wouldn't go around telling his shame to everyone he met. [[spoiler: It turns out that what he's really hiding is two perfectly normal ears - and a scar identifying him as the lawyer who defrauded the old duke out of his lands and title.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'' uses this for a DiscussedTrope again when the Red Hood is about to remove his helmet, warning Batman against what he is about to see. A discretion shot serves to delay TheReveal: The heroic Red Hood is a MirrorUniverse analogue of [[spoiler: The Joker]].

* ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy'': Edd is always wearing a sock on his head. Sometimes it comes off and the other characters stare at it in horror and shock, although what is being seen is never shown to the audience.
** Given that it isn't officially recognized as part of the universe due to being a game on Cartoon Network's site, the canonical nature of it is debatable but in "Cafeteria Rumble", Edd removes his hat as part of a victory should he be the winning avatar; all that can be seen is apparently normal strands of dark hair but given that it's not a clear shot, the player may not be seeing what the other characters see.

* In "Musical Scales" from ''WesternAnimation/DragonTales'', Enrique spends most of the story wearing a bright, multicolored hat, trying to hide a bad haircut that his ''abuelita'' (grandmother) gave him. "I don't think she's cut hair in a long time." In the end, because Zak and Wheezie have been bothered the whole story by their bare skin from the scales that they're shedding, he takes it off in a gesture of empathy. As it turns out, the males of the Doodle Fairy kingdom that Zak, Wheezie and Enrique are performing a song number for all sport the same hairstyle, which they show Enrqiue by removing their ceremonial hats. SO, ultimately, more or less [[SubvertedTrope subverted]].

* The witches in...well, TheWitches have wigs on all the time because witches are naturally bald and leaving them off would expose them for what they really are.

* A 2016 ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' episode hosted by Creator/KristenStewart featured her in a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K79n-yRmTR0 skit about]] underage college students forced to attend an "Dry Friday" event after getting caught with booze. As the students share tales of the bad decisions they've made while drunk, Stewart pulls off her beanie to reveal a "nohawk" (the exact opposite of a mohawk) she got after an incident in which she "did a 10-minute solo keg stand." For the remainder of the skit, the counselors assigned to the group repeatedly suggest that she "just pop that beanie back on" because the sight of her bald streak is so awful.

* ''Series/ADifferentWorld'' had an episode where the guys gave Ron a really bad haircut while he was asleep as a joke. It was bad enough that the ROTC professor told him he could leave his hat on during class
