Added DiffLines:

*TruthInTelevision with a rare occurrence called [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poliosis Poliosis]] (otherwise known as a "Mallen streak"), where it tends to manifest with a streak or patch being lighter colored than the rest of the hair. This is more prominent if the person has dark hair. Likewise, this trope can be invoked with hair dye.

* In ''Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt'', inside Dr. Disaster's space battle [[HardLight simulator]], all the students gain a stripe of differently-colored hair. RedHeadedHero Antimony gets a lock of black; black-haired Kat gets a lock of red. Aside from the [[http://www.gunnerkrigg.com/archive_page.php?comicID=167 chapter title page]], the simulator is depicted DeliberatelyMonochrome, so it's unclear exactly what colors the other students got. Tom Siddell [[WhatCouldHaveBeen originally]] [[http://gunnerkrigg.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=general&action=display&thread=361&page=34#19107 planned]] to make these Skunk Stripes permanent.

!!Examples:



* Death the Kid from ''Manga/SoulEater'' has multiple white streaks in his black hair. Interestingly enough (and occasionally {{Lampshaded}}), the streaks are aligned horizontally across his hair, rather than running along vertically. Specifically stated to be a result of his [[TheGrimReaper grim reaper]] father mystically coloring or recoloring his hair for the RuleOfCool. Unfortunately for Kid, he is SuperOCD and absolutely ''obsessed'' with symmetry, so the stripes are a constant source of chagrin for him; on the plus side, the manga has revealed that, eventually, Kid will have three complete stripes in his hair. It's a grown-up death god thing.
