* Played on the shame side as an important thing in ''Seppuku'', where Tsugomo hunts down his cowardly enemies and defeats them only to cut off their topknots and later show them to their feudal lord. It works. The scene is also meant to mirror the discussion of scalping earlier in the film, so the message becomes rather {{anvilicious}}. Somewhat justified as in feudal Japan only monks, who made a vow of poverty, shaved their hair. To be bald was therefore to display a lack of status and wealth.

* In one of the BabySittersClub spinoff "little sister" books, Karen hates the short haircut she gets (mainly because she didn't ask for it to look like that) and tries various methods to make herself look nicer again, including repeatedly going by more "glamorous" names. Luckily her hair is growing back by the end of the story.

* WorldWarII [[LesCollaborateurs collaborators]] (generally women who had sex with Germans) usually had their heads shaved once the Nazis were kicked out of the town. The reason women were the main target of revenge-minded mobs in newly-liberated areas was because most of the serious collaborators (officials, company heads, officers, local right-wing party members etc.) had already been arrested by their governments for treason, and were awaiting sentence. Or if you want to be cynical, such women were easy targets compared to those in authority, who often kept their positions even after the war. Others were simply shot.

* ''The Girl In The Kremlin'' is famous for a scene in which one girl prisoner has her whole head shaved on camera. This is apparently based off rumours that Joseph Stalin had a fetish for hair-cutting. Actress Natalia Darrell got a $300 bonus for going through with the shaving.

* According to [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Head_shaving this article]] in TheOtherWiki, forced/required head shaving is used on prisoners and U.S. Marine Corps recruits, though for the latter it's probably more of an ImportantHaircut.

* In ''Hetty Feather'' by Jacqueline Wilson, this is a routine punishment at the Foundling Hospital. Hetty doesn't mind because it makes her look like a boy and she therefore has more freedom to move around without being noticed.
