* ComicBook/BlackCanary is one of the biggest {{Action Girl}}s in the DC universe. Occasionally her hair is cut short when not in a wig, though starting sometime in the 90s she grew out her hair and dyed it blond. This style was one of her shorter cuts.

* 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]].



* Angela Petrelli of ''Series/{{Heroes}}'' has Power Hair to go along with her painfully perfect cutthroat [[StepfordSmiler high society aide]]. [[spoiler: It really shouldn't come as a surprise when it turns out she's the EvilMatriarch and in league with [[FallenHero Linderman]] to destroy New York.]]
** In later seasons the actress's hair got longer, and she started arranging it in a very tight updo which creates an even more power-y effect. The comparison became obvious in a flashback to pre-season 1 [[spoiler:before Arthur's apparent death]].

* On ''Series/{{Veep}}'', vice president Selina Myers has a longer version of this in the first two season and most of the third, around a medium length, but averted this in the opening montage symbolizing her earlier career aspirations. Amy, her chief of staff, has hair ending slightly longer than hers while Sue, her secretary, has longer hair than both though she keeps it in some sort of bun most of the time.

* In the music video for "Stupid Girls," {{Pink}} wears her hair like this while she plays a presidential candidate, while lamenting that young girls are being encouraged to be [[BrainlessBeauty shallow and passive,]] and buying into that expectation.

* A rare anime example is Ryoko from ''LightNovel/TheCaseFilesOfYakushijiRyoko'', who isn't so much a villainess as a self-interested {{Jerkass}} 90% of the time, especially in comparison to her rival Yukiko, who has a much more traditional Japanese hairstyle of long black hair pulled back.

** 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.

Not coincidentally, in her announcement video, she was back to PowerHair.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.)
