The fashion industry would have you believe that without make-up, expensive designer clothes, and fancy hair-care, all women look like trolls. [[SheCleansUpNicely Hollywood is all too willing to pass that message along.]] Some women, though, are always gorgeous, even without the aforementioned fashion accessories. In fact, sometimes they're even better-looking that way.

For men this trope has slightly more mainstream recognition, probably because personal grooming [[{{Metrosexual}} is frequently seen as unmanly]]--this is the reason for "bedhead" hairstyles and PermaStubble. The existence of haircare products and grooming tips to maintain this look misses the point.

It may also stem from the line of thought that a woman who seriously puts a great deal of effort into fixing herself up, on a regular basis no less, could be seen as shallow and superficial, caring only about her looks.

* Speaking of Music/CourtneyLove, her husband, rock icon Music/KurtCobain was also seen as this. Once you got past the generic clothing, the messy hair (which became a trend setting hair style) and his messy facial hair, he was otherwise a handsome man to many people, including Love, who often compared him to BradPitt.

For men this trope has slightly more mainstream recognition, probably because personal grooming [[{{Metrosexual}} is often seen as unmanly]]--this is the reason for "bedhead" hairstyles, the ''déshabillé'' look ([[EverythingSoundsSexierInFrench which, while the English use it to mean "dishevelled", means "undressed" in French]]), and PermaStubble.

This trope is the inversion of SheCleansUpNicely, where a woman (or man) is just as appealing dressed down and casual as when she's trying to be sexy. It can also be an [[MisaimedFandom audience's reaction]] to HollywoodHomely, in which case an attempt at [[SheCleansUpNicely SCUN]] will likely be seen as an UnnecessaryMakeover.

Somewhat of a sister trope to WrenchWench, {{Tomboy}}, OneOfTheBoys, GirlNextDoor, and WhenSheSmiles. Also, related to {{Meganekko}}, UglyCute, NubileSavage, and NerdsAreSexy.

* MarilynMonroe once posed in a [[note]]form-fitting, tailored, with fringe on the bottom[[/note]] potato sack, just to prove to everyone what they already knew.
** Also, she was discovered ''[[WrenchWench working in a factory]]''. (It was WorldWarII.)

* In his younger days, [[Music/PearlJam Eddie]] [[https://pbs.twimg.com/media/B_DmK19U8AAjFqW.jpg Vedder]]. Despite generally looking like he'd just thrown on whatever clothes came to hand when he'd gotten out of bed he had (and still has) plenty of fangirls (and fanboys). The Seattle grunge scene in general was rife with (primarily male, although not all) examples of this, including Chris Cornell (although Cornell's look was usually somewhat tidier than Vedder's).
