* Ehlana gets a drawn-out version during the [[{{Elenium}} Tamuli]]; each message her kidnappers send to Sparhawk include a lock of her hair. By the time Sparhawk catches up with them, she's been shaved bald ... which shouldn't have been necessary, there weren't that many messages. Her kidnappers may have taken extra for the trauma value.

* In ''Amy & Isabelle'' the mother Isabelle discovers that her daughter Amy had slept with her teacher and suffers a momentary breakdown because [[spoiler:she had also slept with an older man as a teenager and that man got her pregnant with Amy]]. In a fit of rage she hacks off Amy's beautiful long curly hair. Later near the end of the movie she takes her to the hairdressers to have it tidied up.

* When the title character of ''Film/CurlySue'' is put temporarily into foster care, they hack off a large portion of her long curly hair. Upon being reunited with the woman who had previously been caring for her, she breaks down crying. (She's sobbing about the entire ordeal, but it's discussing the forced haircut that sets her off.)



** Season 5's Cassandra, whose hair was cut short (and never stopped complaining about it), ''quit the show'' when Tyra wanted to cut it ''even shorter''.

* UsefulNotes/QueenVictoria endured one of these in her tween years. Bedridden with typhoid fever, she had to have her long chestnut hair cut extremely short, as medical advice at the time believed it would ease the temperature in her head. Biographer Carolly Erickson notes that the princess was not fond of her own appearance, but her hair was considered lovely, and the loss of it was painful to her (once she was no longer dying and could think about it).

* In ''Literature/{{Cetaganda}}'' by Creator/LoisMcMasterBujold, a Cetagandan noblewoman is restrained in an ingenious way -- since Haut ladies never cut their hair, the bad guys decided to humiliate her by locking her hair to the floor. She refused to cut it even when Miles Vorkosigan came to the rescue (to her disgust, he compared it to animals gnawing through their limbs to escape a trap), so he had to distract her in order to cut it without her consent. With a knife. She was a bit upset afterwards. Also, a different noblewoman later gives Miles a lock of her hair; it's a surprisingly moving token of her esteem.
* In ''Shards of Honor'' by the same author, this trope is used as a chilling prequel to a real rape (plus additional [[ColdBloodedTorture torture]]), when the sadistic psychopath bad guy cuts off a lock of Cordelia's red hair and plays with it. Terrifying when you realize it wasn't her he really wanted to torture, [[RevengeByProxy it was her fiancé]].

** Ayasegawa Yumichika's attack on [[VillainousCrossdresser Charlotte Cuulhuorne's]] hair is enough to make Charlotte go to his released form, despite already [[CurbStompBattle dominating the fight]]. It's implied Yumichika [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy did it deliberately]] in an attempt to make Charlotte release sooner rather than later -- it worked. It's also a call back to Yumichika's fight with Ganju, who knew he was weaker and less skilled than Yumichika so [[CombatPragmatist tossed a firework]] at Yumichika's hair which won him the fight... because [[TheDandy the very vain Yumichika]] was left with a FunnyAfro (he [[CrazyPrepared uses a wig]] to cover it up).

* Wrestling/TheBigShow, was shot with a tranquilizer dart and had his head shaved in the ring by Wrestling/KurtAngle. Most disturbing was that Angle was making noises like he was getting off on it, though nothing explicitly sexual, while announcer Wrestling/MichaelCole went on and on about how Angle was "raping Big Show of his dignity". Repeatedly. For several weeks afterwards when referencing the event. Kurt Angle himself is a victim of this, having lost a Hair vs. Hair match to Wrestling/{{Edge}}. However, after a few weeks of embarrassing toupees, Angle has kept the look since. Supposedly, the whole reason they did that was because Angle was losing his hair anyway.

* At Sacrifice 2008, Roxxi Laveaux lost a hair vs hair match and got her head shaved. Similar to Molly Holly, it was necessary because her hair had been ruined from constant dyeing. She kept her bald look for several months before growing it back. Of note it was not the hair of [[Wrestling/GailKim her opponent]] on the line but that of Wrestling/AngelinaLove, who with Wrestling/TheBeautifulPeople stable (Wrestling/VelvetSky, Wrestling/MadisonRayne) would often assault people and cut out chunks of their hair with scissors and sabotauged the match to ensure Laveau lost. They had also been involved in an angle where "[[Wrestling/DaffneyUnger The Governor]]" fooled them into thinking she was Sarah Palin. Once Laveau and Wrestling/TaylorWilde revealed to them she wasn't The Beautiful People were furious at being humiliated, triple teaming not Palin and cutting chunks off her hair.

* A few weeks before the Wrestlemania 23 match, Vince and Umaga beat the crap out of [[Wrestling/NickDinsmore Eugene]] and shaved his head, while boasting that the same thing would happen to Trump. Obviously, that didn't go as planned.

* After defeating Wrestling/BulletClub's then newest member, Adam Page, Wrestling/JayLethal vowed to run through each and every last member of the group, [[Wrestling/RunTheGauntlet one by one]]. However Bullet Club had no intention of playing along and ended up ganging up on Lethal so Adam Cole could shave his head.

* This Traumatic Haircut combines with DangerouslyCloseShave in ''VideoGame/BrainDead13'': In one death scene, Vivi the {{vampires|AreSexGods}}s gives Lance one of the "OffWithHisHead" variety, when she uses the SinisterScythe to chop off his {{long|HairedPrettyBoy}} {{red|HeadedHero}} hair and also his head. ''Truly'' painful and traumatizing [[WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids even for children]].
