* Cruella de Vil in ''Disney/OneHundredAndOneDalmatians'' was perhaps the earliest Disney villainess with Power Hair. Accentuated by dividing it into half white and black. One exception is hers was not moussed, so it would sweep around across her head and face when her temper went out of control.
* Ursula in the Disney version of the ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'' had the second variety of Power Hair, made all the more striking when compared to Ariel's [[HeroesWantRedheads billowing cloud of red hair]].

* Wrestling/VickieGuerrero initially had long hair, but had switched to this around the time she became Official Consultant of Smackdown. Coincidentally the shorter hair coincided with her becoming a more straightforward evil authority figure, when beforehand she had been in a lengthy romantic comedy storyline with {{Wrestling/Edge}}.

** She always had a youthful hairstyle that that went past her shoulders... until she became first lady, at which point she almost immediately opted for a shorter, more "mature" style. This got her almost immediately labeled as [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen power hungry]], even though she never made statements stronger than general expressions of ambition (which is what politicians need to have of course).
** While she had this during her time as First Lady and later Senator, during her time as Secretary of State, she slowly let her hair grow back longer. Initially it was because her daughter Chelsea asked her to for her wedding, though she kept it that way during the two years between stepping down as Secretary of State and announcing her candidacy for President in 2016. Not coincidentally, in her announcement video, she was back to PowerHair, albeit to a longer style than she had sported as Senator. (Also, to be frank, the longer hair she had in her last few years as Secretary of State aged her a bit--she actually looks ''younger'' than her actual age with the Power Hair than without.)
