* Used particularly brutally in ''Film/LesMiserables2012'': Fantine undergoes one of these by choice in order to sell her hair to feed her little daughter Cosette in the original book, and thus in most adaptations too. In the book, she at least goes to a professional barber, who presumably showed some care and restraint, and even in the stage version she's left with a long pixie. In the movie, however, Creator/AnneHathaway's hair is cut in an alley with a razor blade, leaving her with less than an inch of uneven stubble.

* In ''The Famine Secret'' when the girls enter the workhouse, they have to have their long hair cut short presumably to control lice or disease. It's especially traumatic for Fiona, who had beautiful golden locks, and she protests against it. By the time the children escape the workhouse and flee home, the girls' hair has grown out again.

For the rest of that summer, Callie wore baseball caps to hide the bald patches in her hair.
