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

* In the old JohnWayne and Creator/RobertMitchum western ''Film/ElDorado'', Mississippi ends up in a brief scuffle with the daughter of a nearby rancher when he thinks she is one of the bad guy's Mooks sneaking up on the Sheriff's office. Mississippi remarks after they stop fighting that she looks like "A mustang in need of a comb."

Added DiffLines:

* In contrast with the other women on ''Series/GoodGirlsRevolt'', whose hair is usually either done up, curled or bobbed, Patti wears her long hair down, showing that she's an independent free spirit.

* HelenaBonhamCarter seems nearly incapable of being a Kempt Beauty; any photo of her out of character will almost invariably have [[MessyHair her hair]] looking utterly wild.

** ''Film/XMenApocalypse'': The director sought to elicit this trope when Professor X is losing the BattleInTheCenterOfTheMind against the titular antagonist. Xavier's hair is in disarray, he's smeared in blood, and the worst thing one can say about his appearance is that he looks like a stained [[PrettyBoy porcelain doll]]. The photogenic close-ups spell out to the audience that Charles is the "beauty" and "cutie" in BeautyEqualsGoodness and BreakTheCutie.

* Creator/MaryElizabethWinstead in ''Film/TheThing2011'' prequel, all sweaty and her hair in disarray... Oh, and [[BadAss she's carrying what appears to be a flame-thrower]].

* ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'': Charles Xavier's appearance in 1973 is rather sloppy and disheveled, especially in comparison to the other movies, yet he is still an attractive man. This was done on purpose by the filmmakers (the producers insisted that Creator/JamesMcAvoy keep his hair), and it conveniently evokes the LooksLikeJesus trope, as Christ is often depicted as being handsome in art.
