* ''[[VideoGame/SkiesOfArcadia Skies of Arcadia: Legends]]'': [[TomboyWithAGirlyStreak Aika]] is what you'd get if you re-imagined ''Literature/PippiLongstocking'' as an [[SkyPirate Air Pirate.]] Marco even calls her, "Scarecrow Hair", because [[MegaTwinTails her massive pigtails]] look more like corn stalks and stick out like a pair of handlebars. Which didn't stop [[CasanovaWannabe Vigoro]] from getting [[VillainousCrush hot and bothered]] whe he first saw her, and spends the rest of the game ''[[HopelessSuitor trying]]'' [[LustObject to get her in the sack.]]

to:

* ''VideoGame/AliceMadnessReturns'': In contrast to all of her Wonderland outfits, London Alice's dress is tattered and dirty, while her face is pale, gaunt, and lacks her usual lipstick and eyeshadow. And yet, [[http://vignette1.wikia.nocookie.net/americanmcgeesalice/images/8/8a/Alice%27s_dress_designs.png/revision/latest?cb=20150223114504 she still looks just as lovely.]]

* [[NationsAsPeople Greece]] from ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia''. He says in one strip that he doesn't want Japan to see his hair getting frizzy in the rain, but Japan honestly doesn't see any difference from the way his hair looks normally. And him having 'bed hair' all the time doesn't stop Japan from [[ShipTease implicitly finding him attractive enough to sleep with]].

* Rei Ayanami from ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' is often considered this by fans. Not that she would need a makeover to look nice...
** For that matter, whenever Asuka gets rid of those ridiculous signature hair clips of hers, but especially near the end, when she just stops caring, manages to look infinitely more mature. Arguably, this was done on purpose to emphasize that, at her core, she is still just a child despite all her efforts to not appear to be.

* ''Manga/OuranHighSchoolHostClub'': As shown in episode 17, Kyouya still looks good even when he's literally dragged out of bed in frumpy clothes and bed hair.
** And [[FanNickname Haruhi Potter]] looks adorably frumpy. In fact, Haruhi often looks her most adorable in clothes that don't look like they cost a small fortune.

* In the film ''Film/NotAnotherTeenMovie'', Janey Briggs is said to be ugly because she is wearing [[HollywoodHomely overalls with paint on them, glasses and a pony tail]]. [[ParodiedTrope This is considered worse than girls with actual deformities]]. Of course, she is good looking that way, as well as when SheCleansUpNicely later. This is a parody of the UnnecessaryMakeover in ''ShesAllThat.''

* CourtneyLove in her heyday frequently wore tattered babydoll dresses and bright red lipstick ''in the vicinity of'' her mouth rather than ''on'' her mouth, and appeared to be completely unacquainted with the concept of hairbrushes. She cleans up occasionally now, but 'messy' is still her most iconic look.

Added DiffLines:

* ''[[Franchise/FatalFrame Fatal Frame IV]]'' has Sakuya Haibara with long, beautiful hair that is disheveled and sometimes hangs into her face. Given her [[IllGirl illness]], she likely doesn't have the priority to take care of it or her attacks make her too crazy to care. Despite that, several notes (and even Misaki) mention how beautiful Sakuya always looks.

* AmandaPalmer wears wacky costumes onstage, but there's plenty of pictures of her completely dressed down. She looks extremely different without dark lipstick and eyeliner on, but she still looks quite beautiful. And her hair is always unkempt looking.

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 when they first wake up in the morning, and are walking around their breakfast nook in their sweatpants, all bleary-eyed, [[MessyHair their hair in disarray]], [[TooMuchInformation scratching their--]] you get the idea. In fact, sometimes they're even hotter that way.

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",]] [[FreudWasRight but it means "undressed" in French]]), and PermaStubble. The fact that there are haircare products and grooming tips to maintain this look misses the point.
