* The movie ''She's In The Army Now'' features a group of unprepared women joining the army for basic training. The women are allowed to keep their hair long if they make sure it's above the collar at all times. Virginia Marshall has long RapunzelHair that frequently comes undone, and the sergeant has the platoon do push-ups as punishment. So a trio of other women blindside Marshall and cut all her hair off - which is a bit of DisproportionateRetribution, since the platoon only had to do twelve push-ups as punishment.



** Inverted with one of the male models, who started out with short hair but got extensions put in to give him a 'Jesus' look. It was every bit as ridiculous as it sounds. Another guy was given a facial hair weave, with similar results.



* In the Creator/VCAndrews novel ''Literature/FlowersInTheAttic'', the [[EvilMatriarch fanatically religious grandmother]] coats Cathy's long hair in tar to force her to cut it (believing that vanity is a sin). The children manage to remove the tar with chemicals. Cathy cuts off the front part of her hair and wears a scarf to hide the rest and fool Grandmother into thinking she cut it all off.

The children manage to remove the tar with chemicals. Cathy cuts off the front part of her hair and wears a scarf to hide the rest and fool Grandmother into thinking she cut it all off. The TV movie does both - where the children can't remove the tar and Cathy just has Chris cut all her hair off.



* In ''The Blair Witch Files'' (a spin-off of ''Film/TheBlairWitchProject''), one book deals with a girl called Louise Irwin. Once her parents and uncle die, her Aunt Mary doesn't want to keep her in the house. She also doesn't want to drive all the way to the next town to put her in a home for girls - so she cuts all Louise's hair off and sends her to the local home for boys as 'Lee Irwin'.



** ''That'll Teach Em'' - boys had to get short-back-and-sides. Brennon Gunston began as a rocker with long blond hair. After it was all cut off, he had a hard time adjusting to the system. He ended up quitting the show. A Spanish spin-off had girls forced to get regulation haircuts too (to shoulder-length). Some of them really didn't take it well.

A Dutch spin-off forced a black girl to remove all her extensions, leaving her hair very short.

* In ''{{Claymore}}'', Clare and Teresa were both originally proud of their long, black hair. The process used to give them their powers turns their hair platinum blonde. Clare also is forced to cut her hair during training. Also, [[spoiler: Clare accidentally cuts off a lock of Galataea's hair while rescuing her from Agatha, who's holding Galataea hostage. Much indignation ensues.]]

* In the manga version of ''FlameOfRecca'', Mikagami cuts Yanagi's hair after telling her about his dead sister (who she looks very much like, and apparently looks even more like with her hair short). Recca gets royally pissed, and brings up the hair=life comparison during the fight that ensues.

* In ''Anime/{{Ooku}}: The Inner Chambers'', Iemitsu, frustrated by her imprisonment and situation, orders her retainer go out into the streets and chop off women's hair. This was likely inspired by Iemitsu's ''own'' TraumaticHaircut, which happened not long after being kidnapped and forced to pose as her father.
