[[caption-width-right:350: White hair and [[SupernaturalGoldEyes gold eyes]]? Yep. Magic user.]]

->''"Sophie! Your hair! It looks just like starlight. It's beautiful!"''
-->-- '''Howl''', ''Anime/HowlsMovingCastle''

In RealLife, white hair indicates either age (very young ''or'' very old), bleach, or albinism (which has its [[HeroicAlbino own]] [[EvilAlbino tropes]]). Not so in fiction, where white hair can occur naturally on women of any age. For a given value of "natural", that is: white locks mark their owner as special in some way. Maybe her hair is indicative of some spiritual (or outright magical) qualities, or maybe it's a hint of a nonhuman background. At the most mundane, it suggests [[WiseBeyondTheirYears wisdom beyond her years]]. It is a common mark of a MysteriousWaif.

Often, this is treated like a variation on blond hair—"platinum blond”—with the character having blue eyes to match. Unless she has [[RedEyesTakeWarning red eyes]], which would suggest she's an albino. Or she's a DarkSkinnedBlonde, in which case, it's probably a good idea to book it, fast.

The popularity of this trope probably stems from its status as a borderline-natural [[HairColors hair color]]: white hair on a young person strikes that delicate balance of being unusual but not [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair blatantly unrealistic]]. The color also lends itself well towards symbolism (purity or death, take your pick).

Her male counterpart, WhiteHairBlackHeart, is more strongly associated with Japanese media. He lacks the magical connotations and is more likely to be an antagonist or outright evil.

It bears repeating that these are young (or at least [[OlderThanTheyLook young]]-[[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld looking]]) characters, and their hair color is not indicative of age. For White Haired Pretty Old Ladies (assuming their hair wasn't white [[IWasQuiteALooker when they were young]]), see GrandmaWhatMassiveHotnessYouHave.

!!Examples

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* In ''Manga/PandoraHearts'', the [[EvilTwin Intention of the Abyss]], who is the twin of the [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Bloody Black Rabbit.]] She seems gentle and kind, but is actually quite mentally unstable. [[spoiler: practically a GenerationXerox of her mother, Lacie Baskerville.]]
* In ''Manga/{{X1999}}'', Princess Hinoto has white hair and is one of the most powerful magical beings in that world.
* Also by CLAMP, in ''Manga/{{Clover}}'', Suu has white hair and ''is'' the most powerful magical being in that world.
* The first Reinforce from ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAs'', the physical incarnation of a powerful WeaponOfMassDestruction. Ditto for Reinforce Zwei, her successor/daughter.
** The series also has Cinque, a [[HollywoodCyborg Combat Cyborg]] who serves as the older sister to most of her fellow [[QuirkyMinibossSquad Numbers]], which is kind of funny, considering that she's also the TokenMiniMoe of the group, with an [[EyepatchOfPower eyepatch]] and [[BadassLongcoat trenchcoat]], no less.
* Momo from ''LightNovel/BalladOfAShinigami'' is a white haired {{Shinigami}}.
* In ''Manga/{{Kurohime}}'' the titular character is a white haired gunslinging witch.
* ''Manga/RozenMaiden:'' Suigintou, Barasuishou and Kirakishou all have white hair. [[ArtificialHuman All three are dolls brought to life]].
* Zazie Rainyday from ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'', one of the more mysterious characters, is a DarkSkinnedBlond with white hair.
** There are some implications that Setsuna is one as well and merely dyes her hair because she considers her [[HeroicAlbino albinism]] to be a point of shame.
* Azmaria in ''Manga/ChronoCrusade'', a young girl with white hair and the power to heal people when she sings.
* Tessa from ''LightNovel/FullMetalPanic'' has white hair and additionally comes with an AloofBigBrother. Guess which [[WhiteHairBlackHeart hair color and alignment]] he sports...
** Though one novel describes their hair as "ash blonde", it is commonly depicted as white.
* Like the above example, Felli Loss from ''LightNovel/ChromeShelledRegios'' has silver hair and also has an AloofBigBrother sporting the same hair color.
* In ''LightNovel/IriyaNoSoraUFONoNatsu'', [[spoiler:Iriya's hair gets dyed white against her will.]]
* ''Manga/MermaidSaga'': Towa Kannagi's hair turned white after her sister, in an attempt to save her life, fed her mermaid blood.
* The sensual [[TheGunslinger shot]] and DarkActionGirl Hibari Ginza from ''Anime/SpeedGrapher'' has silver hair.
* Jiang Lihua aka Empress Tianzi is a white haired HeroicAlbino from ''Anime/CodeGeass'', also a MoeMoe ChineseGirl.
* Rally Cheyenne from ''Manga/SilentMobius'', at least, in flashbacks, since she's pushing 40 by the time of the main body of the series. (She's still good-looking.)
* Kisara of ''Anime/YuGiOh''. Unfortunately, her white hair and pale skin led to discrimination and loathing by the people of ancient Egypt.
* ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam00'' has a couple of examples in HRL SuperSoldier Soma Peires [[spoiler:a.k.a. Marie Parfacy]], and Celestial Being's ''[[Manga/Gundam00Sidestories Fereshte]]'' member Chall Acoustica. For the latter, her hair was naturally brown, until a reactor overload in her Gundam caused it to turn white (in addition to scarring her face and [[spoiler:killing all her comrades]]).
** Ditto on Soma's {{Expy}}, Laura Bodewig from ''LightNovel/InfiniteStratos''.
* The original Queen Serenity in ''Manga/SailorMoon''. Sailor Moon herself was originally supposed to be white haired when transformed and blonde as Usagi. This was vetoed by Naoko's editor Osa-P. In the manga, she does have white hair as Princess Serenity and Neo Queen Serenity, but not in the anime.
** Also, Sailor Star Healer has gray hair. In the anime, this is [[GenderBender only when she's a Senshi]]. It's all the time in the Manga.
** Vilui, part of the SmugSnake QuirkyMinibossSquad from the third season has pale blue hair.
* In the [[TheFilmOfTheBook anime]] [[Literature/HowlsMovingCastle adaptation]] of ''Literature/HowlsMovingCastle'', Sophie ends up with grey hair once her curse is broken and she has [[spoiler:come into her latent magical abilities.]]
* In ''Manga/AhMyGoddess'' Hild, a demon, and Urd, her half-demon half-goddess daughter, are {{dark skinned blond}}s with white hair.
* Chii from ''Manga/{{Chobits}}''.
** Though note that Chii's white hair is not a biologically occurring natural hair color in her world.
* The hair of all Anime/{{Claymore}}s turns white during their [[HalfHumanHybrid hybridization]] process.
** Well...many, but not quite all. First off, there's Clarice, who's hybridisation was a failure and whose hair is still dark enough to count as brunette, but even the manga's colour illustrations show some Claymore, like Miria, to have darker blonde hair, while the anime turns a few, like Helen, into outright golden blondes.
* Sylvie Lumiere from ''LightNovel/{{Baccano}}'', although it doesn't seem to be held as any indication of unusual abilities apart from [[{{immortality}} the most common one in the series]].
* Jo from ''Anime/BurstAngel'' has silver hair and [[spoiler:is later revealed to be a [[ArtificialHuman genetically engineered]] SuperSoldier.]]
* Hanekawa Tsubasa from ''LightNovel/{{Bakemonogatari}}'' [[spoiler:becomes one when possessed by a white-haired bakeneko.]]
* Nico Robin's mother in ''Manga/OnePiece'', Nico Olivia, had pure white hair. It's unknown how old she was when she died, but she didn't appear too old, and Robin herself was only 8.
* Sylia Stingray of ''Anime/BubblegumCrisis 2040'', if you can overlook drinking and/or drug problems and a few general mental issues.
** In the original, she had a weird ''haze grey'' hair -- which was [[EpilepticTrees taken up by some fans]] as one more irrefutable proof of her being [[RobotGirl Boomer]].
* Yumi from ''Anime/{{Ulysses 31}}'' belongs to a race of blue skinned, white haired human looking aliens called the Zotrians. The Zotrians are also known for their exceptional beauty.
* An interesting variation occurs in the ''LightNovel/{{Slayers}}'' series: protagonist Lina has [[FieryRedhead reddish colored hair]], but when she casts a particular high-level spell, her hair turns white. This occurs once in the LightNovel series, and twice in the anime.
** A straighter example is Millina, a white haired female mercenary and Lina's ally from the second half of the novels. However, she herself subverts this trope in that she is a rather average-leveled mage and swordswoman, and is [[PerpetualFrowner a bit of a grump.]]
* The titular heroine of ''Anime/{{Canaan}}''. JustifiedTrope in that [[spoiler:it actually turned white as a side effect of her exposure to the Ua virus.]]
** Horrifyingly subverted when [[spoiler:Liang Qi tries to give herself synesthesia and swallows capsules containing the Ua virus]]. Her originally dark hair turns white...[[spoiler:and then she suffers a truly horrible RasputinianDeath]].
* Mirajane of ''Manga/FairyTail'' has pure white hair and blue eyes. Apparently, though, it's hereditary and has nothing to do with her age, personality, or magic, since both Elfman and their dead little sister, Lisana, have white hair.
* Saiki from ''Manga/GhostTalkersDaydream'' is albino.
* Gretel from ''Manga/BlackLagoon'' is a young girl with white hair, and her brother Hansel was the [[WhiteHairBlackHeart male counterpart]] of this trope...[[SingleMindedTwins sometimes]]...[[VillainousCrossDresser we think]].
* Togame from ''LightNovel/{{Katanagatari}}'' has epically long white hair - long enough for Shichika to wrap around himself ''several times''.
* Fujiko from ''Manga/ZettaiKarenChildren'' is a white haired vampire
* [[LadyOfWar Astaroshe Asran]] from ''LightNovel/TrinityBlood'' has white hair ([[LockedIntoStrangeness except a single red forelock]]) in the original novels. She was changed to a [[AdaptationDyeJob natural blonde in the anime]].
* Alex from ''{{Nightschool}}'' has white hair [[spoiler:that used to be brown. She was LockedIntoStrangeness when she was cursed.]]
* Shiro from ''Manga/DeadmanWonderland'' is a HeroicAlbino ([[spoiler:[[SplitPersonality well, when her evil side doesn't takeover]]]]) with white hair and red eyes. The word "Shiro" in Japanese literally translates to ''White'' in English.
* Princess Romina from ''Anime/NinjaSenshiTobikage'' is a [[HumanAliens human looking alien]] with silvery-lavender hair.
* Matsuri from Manga/StrawberryMarshmallow is a rare non-magical, realistic example, where her hair has started graying early. It's entirely mundane, but is also a subject of some debate early on in the manga. Not quite white, but give her a few years...
* The eponymous Index from ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'' has silvery-white hair.
* [[spoiler:Victorique]] from ''LightNovel/{{Gosick}}'' becomes one in the final episode. Her hair was previously golden blonde. The reason for the sudden change is left unexplained in the series, but due to the events that took place shortly before said change, it's most likely a case of DiseaseBleach.
* Like [[Manga/MahouSenseiNegima Setsuna]], Himari of ''Manga/OmamoriHimari'' dyes her hair because she thinks her master prefers brunettes.
* Sakurako Saiki from ''Manga/SakuraGari'' is albino with white hair and red eyes.
* Belarus in ''Manga/AxisPowersHetalia'' has platinum blonde hair, though [[AdaptationDyeJob not in the anime]] where it's dark blonde. This fits, as the country's name means "White Russia". She is an ElegantGothicLolita, as well as a StrangeGirl and most notably, a {{Yandere}}.
* Koko Hekmatyar in ''Manga/{{Jormungand}}'' is a white-haired blue-eyed OneeSama.
* Meiko "Menma" Honma from ''Anime/AnoHanaTheFlowerWeSawThatDay''. The symbolism works both ways, as after dying as a child, she has grown, but her demeamor remains the same, so she's a ghost but also innocent.
* Tenshi/Angel from ''Anime/AngelBeats'' has long white hair to emphasise her [[TheQuietOne eeriness]] and [[EmotionlessGirl emotionlessness]].
* Princess Kikuri from ''Manga/ArataKangatari'' has long, white RapunzelHair. Subverted, as Kikuri only looks like a young girl; her youth is maintained with her powers, and [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld she's actually even older than the color of her hair would normally suggest.]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* MarvelComics:
** ''Comicbook/{{X-Men}}'''s Ororo "{{Storm}}" Munroe is a DarkSkinnedBlond(-ish) with, yes, blue eyes. This was eventually explained as a property she got from her mother's inherent magic. Her mother was an Egyptian princess.
** Rogue from the X-Men has white streaks in the front of her hair. In the [[Film/XMen1 first X-Men film]], this happens to Rogue after her power is drained by Magneto.
** ''SpiderMan'''s ClassyCatBurglar Felicia "Black Cat" Hardy. The recognizable white hair is part of her costume, in some versions.
** SilverSable originally had brown hair but it turned white after she witnessed the death of her mother by terrorists.
** Comicbook/DoctorStrange's disciple/lover/wife Clea, half-Faltinian princess of the Dark Dimension. She has a touch of AnimeHair as well.
** ''[[CaptainMarVell CaptainMarvel]]'''s Phyla-Vell a.k.a. Quasar, who's Titanian. Titanese? (With a few alien genes thrown in.)
*** She's also a rare short-haired White-Haired Pretty Girl (she has some ButchLesbian tendencies DependingOnTheWriter).
** An extremely fictionalised is depicted with d ''[[{{Marvel 1602}} 1602]]''.
** Songbird of the ''{{Thunderbolts}}''. Though that's not her real hair color (just about all of the Thunderbolts had their faces altered to fit their scheme) and it has a red streak through it.
** The ''X-Men'' villain Spiral, although she was originally a brunette before her genes were messed with.
** AlphaFlight's Walter Langkowski, aka Sasquatch, once [[GenderBender became a woman]] after returning from the dead (long story). Going by the name Wanda, she was young and pretty, and had snow-white hair in both her human and Sasquatch forms.
* Creator/DCComics:
** ''Comicbook/TeenTitans'''s Rose "Ravager" Wilson, who's been called platinum blonde at least once in a recent issue. Oddly enough, this is supposedly because her father, Deathstroke, also has white hair due to [[LockedIntoStrangeness the experiment that gave him his powers]], which brings up [[LamarckWasRight another trope]].
** Ice (Tora Olafsdotter). White hair, blue eyes, and she's the princess of a magical northern tribe.
** The first female Dove, Dawn Granger, in DC's ''HawkAndDove''. In her earlier appearances, only her Dove superhero form had white hair, while Dawn was a blonde. In more recent appearances pre-New 52, she was shown with white hair in both identities -- most likely because it made it easier to differentiate her from the ''other'' two major blonde female characters in ''Comicbook/BirdsOfPrey'' when she joined that team. In her appearances in the New 52 reboot, colorists went back to only coloring her hair white as Dove.
** Dream Girl / Dreamer, Princess Projectra and White Witch from the ''ComicBook/{{Legion Of Super-Heroes}}''. The latter is (usually) a HeroicAlbino.
** Hippolyta (Lyta) Hall, the second Fury, who featured prominently in ''ComicBook/TheSandman''. It's not entirely clear whether this is actually blonde hair drawn as white (since a younger Lyta is shown as a blonde, and one character refers to her as a blonde as an adult), or if it really is white.
** Abby Holland (née Abigail Arcane), Comicbook/SwampThing's wife, has snow-white hair with two black streaks running through it.
** Dolphin, frequently seen in Comicbook/{{Aquaman}} comics.
** When the MetalMen had to assume human identities (due to humanity turning against them and believing them to be dead), Platnium became a fashion model named [[StevenUlyssesPerhero Tina Platt]]. Fittingly, she's a platnium blonde.
** Essence from ''ComicBook/RedHoodAndTheOutlaws''.
* Jennifer Morgan, Travis Morgan's daughter and the sorceress supreme of Skartaris in ''TheWarlord''. She was originally blonde, but her hair turns white as she gains sorcerous power.
* CrossGen's ''The First'' had both white-haired Ingra and Wyture, neither of them human. ''Negation'' had Khlystek, the [[EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep Lizard Lady]], a reptilian alien with white hair.
* Gabrielle from ''{{Spawn}}'' is an [[OurAngelsAreDifferent angel]] who has pure white hair.
* Glory, Probe, and Suprema all have white hair, as drawn by RobLiefeld, who, being a fan of the look, also applied it for Dawn Granger, mentioned above.
** In Suprema's case, like {{Supreme}}, the white hair is a side effect of exposure to Supremium, the source of their powers.
* The comics version of ''ComicBook/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch'' used to have Platinum Blonde hair but recent version of her tend to have regular blonde hair.
* LadyDeath is a white haired, white skin goddess.
* Zia, a character from ''WetMoon'', claims to have gained white hair after surviving a car accident that took her arm.
* All of the [[ComicBook/TheMetabarons Metabarons]] have long white hair, if they have any. For some reason, even the women they bring into the family from other clans have long white hair.
* There's Wolf Gal, a white haired woman RaisedByWolves, from Lil Abner.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Film]]
* Princess Nuala from ''Film/{{Hellboy}} II'' has long silvery hair, a common trait among elves.
* Kim Obrist of ''Film/{{Scanners}}'' is prematurely grey.
* Ni Chan, also know as the White-Haired Witch, from ''TheForbiddenKingdom''.
* Mirana, the White Queen from TimBurton's ''Film/AliceInWonderland''. She is one of the most powerful people in the country, matched only by her sister, the Red Queen.
* The eponymous character (Anne Schuyler) in ''Platinum Blonde''. In fact, JeanHarlow in most of her film roles.
* Mirage from ''TheIncredibles'' has snow-white hair that certainly makes her stick out since most of the cast have plausible hair colors.
* Aisling from ''Film/TheSecretOfKells'' has white hair. She's a [[TheFairFolk fairy]].
* Kida from Disney's ''Disney/AtlantisTheLostEmpire''. White hair seems to be a racial trait of all the Atlanteans, suggestive of their longevity (but not their age--the children have white hair, too).
* Lady Amalthea, the human form of the titular unicorn in ''WesternAnimation/TheLastUnicorn'' long flowing white hair.
** Pale enough to qualify for HeroicAlbino.
* Taarna from ''WesternAnimation/HeavyMetal''. Also, the girl at the end develops white hair after she's revealed as Taarna's reincarnation.
* Susan[=/=]Ginormica from ''WesternAnimation/MonstersVsAliens'' hair was originally brown but after getting hit by MagicMeteor her hair turns white and she grows into a [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever giant fifty foot woman]].
* Emily Browning as Babydoll in ''SuckerPunch'' combined with GirlishPigtails. Co-star Abbie Cornish has the same hair briefly when she's wearing a wig pretending to be Babydoll.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Literature]]
* The Childlike Empress has white hair in ''Literature/TheNeverendingStory''.
* In ''TheStand'', Nadine's hair [[LockedIntoStrangeness supernaturally turns white]] due to contact with Randall Flagg.
* The StarWarsExpandedUniverse has a few white haired characters: Winter Celchu, Leia's aide (first appearance in TimothyZahn's [[TheThrawnTrilogy Thrawn trilogy]], though she also featured in the XWingSeries comics), Brianna, the Last Handmaiden, and Atris, the Jedi historian (from ''KnightsOfTheOldRepublic II''). They seem mature, though not yet old.
** Though white hair and silver eyes are the most common hair/eye colors among the Echani.
** In Winter's case it's definitely not a sign of age: she's canonically established as having white hair [[TheHanSoloTrilogy at the age of 17]] and an [[StarWarsTales ambiguously canon]] comic shows her with it as a child.
* Lisbeth in ''Literature/OldYeller'', in an easy-to-miss line.
* Winter from ''Literature/LevenThumpsAndTheGatewayToFoo'' is from Foo and thus has ice powers even as a human.
* There was a young woman in Thomas M. Disch's ''The Prisoner'' novel with white hair. She didn't have any magic powers.
* Yvaine from ''Literature/{{Stardust}}'' is white-haired.
* The protagonist of AndreNorton's ''Forerunner: The Second Venture''. Dark skin, aquiline features, and white hair.
* In MercedesLackey's ''HeraldsOfValdemar'' books, using Adept-level magic bleaches your hair, so any young female Adepts eventually become examples of this trope.
** In Lackey's ''Literature/TheBlackSwan'', Odile von Rothbart has white hair. She suspects her mage father may have changed its color.
* Ramandu's platinum blonde haired daughter from ''ChroniclesOfNarnia'', who is actually ''a star''.
* The Faerie Queens and Ladies in ''TheDresdenFiles'' are described as beyond gorgeous and white-haired (although the Winter Lady streaks hers with dye.) And the hair of Thomas Raith's girlfriend, Justine, turned white after Thomas fed on her so deeply that she should have died. And a demon girl named Tessa has white hair in her rather cute human form.
* The entire Marat race in Jim Butcher's other series, ''Literature/CodexAlera'', tend to have white hair so a lot of them qualify as either this or WhiteHairBlackHeart. [[ActionGirl Kitai]] is the most prominent example, though there are several much less significant female Marat who are also this trope.
* The protagonist of the wuxia novel ''The Bride with White Hair'' by Liang Yusheng. There is a FilmOfTheBook too.
* [[Literature/{{Discworld}} Susan Sto-Helit]] has this, with one black streak; she's also a MagicalNanny and the granddaughter of [[GrimReaper Death]].
* In Creator/AnneMcCaffrey's ''The Rowan'', the titular character has white hair, which is also inherited by her descendants of both sexes as a white streak.
** Also in her Literature/AcornaSeries, the title character has white hair and is a human-unicorn hybrid, with healing and other magical powers through her horn, though the whiteness of her hair stems for her people's tendency to go white after spending large amounts of time in space.
* Daenerys Targaryen of ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire''. Targeryens tend to have silver-blonde hair as well as violet eyes due to their Valyrian blood, which has been maintained through the centuries with [[BrotherSisterIncest massive inbreeding]].
* Morgaine in Creator/CJCherryh's ''Literature/MorgaineCycle'' is white-haired and beautiful due to belonging to a half-blooded ancient race.
* Gwerath in ''Literature/TheSevenCitadels'' has silver hair, as did Kerish's late mother, Taana.
* [[spoiler:President]] Eloise Pritchart in the ''Literature/HonorHarrington'' series is frequently described as having "platinum" hair.
* The Black Cat in ''{{Spider-Man}}: The Darkest Hours'' has silver hair.
* [[http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://img1.fantasticfiction.co.uk/images/n53/n265312.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.fantasticfiction.co.uk/v/elizabeth-vaughan/white-star.htm&usg=__viz6KvuyXcEB3lCxnwAan8Lh5mo=&h=500&w=313&sz=28&hl=en&start=1&um=1&itbs=1&tbnid=MXA04UhvBZVJaM:&tbnh=130&tbnw=81&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dwhite%2Bstar%2Bnovel%26um%3D1%26hl%3Den%26client%3Dsafari%26sa%3DN%26rls%3Den%26tbs%3Disch:1 Lady High Priestess Evelyn]] from ''White Star'' and the other novels in the series by Elizabeth Vaughan has white hair with a matching white dress. She says that she used to be a brunette, but one day, she pushed her HealingHands to the limit to save a man who had been mortally wounded. She passed out, and woke up to find the man healed and her hair permanently snow white.
* Lucretia from ''Literature/{{Bystander}}'' has silver hair.
* Nyarko from ''[[NyarkoSan Haiyore! Nyarko-san]]'' in her human form has silver hair.
* Miranda in L. Jagi Lamplighter's ''ProsperosDaughter'' trilogy. In the BackStory, her brother Eramus had turned it to an old woman's hair in anger; she had been able to restore its health, but not its color. [[spoiler:When Eramus restores its original black, she doesn't like it, even though she recognizes the intent of generosity.]]
* Kiki in the ''KikiStrike'' series. It wasn't really much of a plot point, but it was used to show how unusual she was.
* [[TheChosenOne Jenna]], from Jane Yolen's ''Literature/GreatAltaSaga'', has pure white hair and black eyes, a sign of her status as a messianic figure; she is a heroine of legend who is reincarnated every few hundred years, always with white hair from birth.
* Ash March in ''SwordOfShadows'' has very pale blonde hair, putting her right between this and hair of gold, depending on the lighting.
* ''Literature/TheLastUnicorn'''s Lady Amalthea has white hair, which makes sense, given that she's actually a unicorn that was turned into a human.
* In Creator/PatriciaAMcKillip's "Oak Hill", Elaine's dye, she claims, will find its color on Maris's hair. What it does is turn it white, like a spider web.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Live-ActionTV]]
* Two of the ''SuperSentai'' main villainess, [[DengekiSentaiChangeman Queen Ahames]] and [[SeijuuSentaiGingaman Steerwoman Shelinda]] have white hair. Their character [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen arch]][[TheBaroness type]] however, don't match very well with the trope (their sexiness do though).
* Willow briefly had white hair in the finale of ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'', due to using powerful good magic to connect to every potential Slayer on the planet.
* Abby has white hair in ''{{Primeval}}'', but that's bleach and her only power is turning on fanboys.
** [[EvenTheGirlsWantHer There are some fan]]''[[EvenTheGirlsWantHer girls]]'' [[EvenTheGirlsWantHer who would like to debate that last statement you know]].
* Number Six from ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|Reimagined}}'' (though there are brunette and sandy blonde versions as well).
* Chiana in ''Series/{{Farscape}}''. A feature of her species, apparently - the women have white hair and the men have black hair.
* Yuki from the live-action version of ''CuteyHoney'' had white hair when she "flashed" into her battle form.
* Daenerys Targaryen (natural brunette Emilia Clarke in a white wig) in ''Series/GameOfThrones'', who has silver-blonde hair due to her Targaryen ancestry.
* Young Danish actress, [[http://berlingske.image.unwire.com/IP/ss/a.bimg.dk/node-images/627/5/620x/5627271-forbrydelsen-3.jpg?IP_w=800 Kaya Fjeldsted]], who plays Emilie in series 3 of Series/{{Forbrydelsen}} (''The Killing'') has naturally platinum-blonde hair so fair that it looks white.
* Zev (not Xev) Bellringer from Lexx starts out as a dirty blonde, but 790 is shown selecting white hair [[spoiler:(for both head and pubis)]] as part of her transformation. Furthermore, [[spoiler:in the uncut version of "Supernova", you can see that the makeup department kept continuity with this color scheme.]]

[[folder:Music]]
* Natasha Bedingfield's entire theme in the ''Between the Raindrops'' video is built around this trope. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dG6-bU6esKo Pale hair, pale skin, white dress, white horses...]] even her vocals are soft and ethereal.
* Music/LadyGaga has white hair in her ''Alejandro'' video, and several others (it's a wig).
* In her more recent live shows, Japanese singer/cellist Kanon Wakeshima [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UR_MM6SZMiI wears a white wig.]]
* [[https://fbcdn-sphotos-g-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/215992_1790897569816_4736733_n.jpg Donna Lynch]] of Music/EgoLikeness has platinum blonde hair.

* Angelina Love and Madison Rayne of The Beautiful People in TNA. Averted with team members Velvet Sky - who was two-toned - and Lacey Von Erich - who was honey blonde.
* The appropriately named Norwegian-Canadian indie wrestler Silvie Silver "Silver-Star".
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* Avacyn from MagicTheGathering's ''Innistrad'' pack is a white haired angel. Helps with the DarkIsNotEvil motiff since she wears all black.
* Many Sisters of Battle from ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' have white hair, though this is heavily implied to be the result of dyeing. Whether they're actually ''pretty'' varies from artist to artist, with some casting them as your standard pretty AmazonBrigade, and others sit down and think about how a life of fighting ([[HelmetsAreHardlyHeroic often without a helmet]]) would actually make them look like.
** Considering the CrapsackWorld they live in, it's entirely possible it's white due to stress.
** Or even age - the elite of humanity often receive treatments to keep them fighting for hundreds of years. Old Space Marines usually seem to opt for BaldOfAwesome instead.
* ''LegendOfTheFiveRings'': Some members of the Crane clan, both male and females, dye their hair white in honor of their ancestors.
* Dark elves, or drow, also count as DarkSkinnedBlonde ([[FridgeLogic despite living underground for thousands of years, which you'd think would have the opposite effect]]; though, at least in one gameworld, they're described as being cursed into that form so none would mistake them). And [[OurElvesAreBetter since they're elves]], they tend to be very good-looking (drow are even described as being more attractive on average than other elves, on top of looking exotic). They took this to massive race-wide MsFanservice levels. The good ones took to dancing naked in the moonlight. The [[AlwaysChaoticEvil evil ones]] considered wearing armor admission of [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder fear and weakness before rival houses]]. The females would often wander their cities nude or nearly so, flaying alive anyone who was DistractedByTheSexy with [[WhipItGood whips made of snakes]], unless they decided the male would make a worthy addition to their harem and let him audition for the role of pleasure slave. Pretty is not nice at all.
* The Whites in ''CthulhuTech'' are completely white (skin, eyes, and hair), on the average more attractive than either humans or Nazzadi, AND all natural para-psychics.
* ''{{Pathfinder}}'': Feiya the iconic witch, Merisiel the iconic Rogue, and Seoni the iconic sorceress all have white hair (and are pretty). And Seltyiel, the iconic Magus who has WhiteHairBlackHeart, so apparently Paizo is fond of this trope.
* Arianna from ''{{Exalted}}''. There are others, but Arianna is the only one on the cover of the primary rulebook.
* ''TabletopGame/{{Nobilis}}'' has the [[HumanoidAbomination Excrucian]] Iolithae Septimian, a ConsummateLiar who is able to deceive reality itself.

[[folder:Theater]]
* In some theatrical adaptations of ''Literature/AChristmasCarol'', such as the one by Seattle's A Contemporary Theatre, the Ghost of Christmas Past is depicted with white or light blonde hair.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* The heroine of the Nintendo DS game ''VideoGame/AnotherCode: Two Memories'' (''[[MarketBasedTitle Trace Memory]]'' [[UsefulNotes/BritishEnglish across the pond]]) has white hair. This is a little strange considering her father has blonde hair and mother has black hair.
* ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic II'' had Jedi Master Atris has white hair despite being human.
** And Handmaiden[[spoiler:/Brianna]], with her whole race, the Echani pretty much look human but they all have white hair and silver eyes.
* Nu Wa from ''[[VideoGame/WarriorsOrochi Warriors Orochi 2]]'' is a white haired goddess.
* Sierra Mikain from ''VideoGame/SuikodenII'' fits every aspect of this trope to a T, from the beautiful white hair to the mysterious personality.
* Gwendonlyn from ''VideoGame/OdinSphere'' has white hair. Seems to be a common trait for Valkyries.
* The Viera from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTacticsAdvance'' (and, later, ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII'' and ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTacticsA2''), who regard it as a blessing from the gods. Also, [[spoiler:Ritz, subverted in that she hates it (because she gets teased about it constantly, and resents the misery it causes her and her mother), and therefore has it dyed red up to the epilogue.]]
** Actually, it's the viera spirits, not the gods. Shara regards white hair as [[spoiler:the best gift a human could have.]]
** And [[ClassyCatBurglar Adelle]] from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTacticsA2'' has white hair.
* Amoretta of ''VideoGame/GrimGrimoire'', the [[spoiler:[[ArtificialHuman Homunculus]] with the soul of an angel.]]
* Zelda's lady-in-waiting, Impa (the 30-something AmazonianBeauty from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'' has grey hair, natch, not the old lady from the other installments).
* Sapphire from ''{{Disgaea 3}}'' has white hair. More of a dirty white than pure white, though.
* Raine Sage of ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'' like her little brother is a white haired elf ([[spoiler:she's really half elf]]).
** [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} Grune]] in ''VideoGame/TalesOfLegendia'' has white hair. [[spoiler:She's later revealed to be a goddess.]]
** [[spoiler:Musee Maxwell]] in ''VideoGame/TalesOfXillia'' has white hair and [[SupernaturalGoldEyes gold eyes]] to boot.
* The current page image: Micaiah of ''Fire Emblem: [[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Radiant Dawn]]''. She's called the Silver-Haired Maiden, and yes, that's a plot point. [[YouCanRunButYouCantHide Several]] [[MysteriousWaif plot]] [[HalfHumanHybrid points]].
** For that matter, there's also Ninian the Dancer from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe'', and the shaman Diadora and [[spoiler:her daughter]] Julia in ''Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War''. Not ''quite'' white in these cases, but [[HairColorDissonance close enough]]. Similarly, Ishtar from the same game is either portrayed with whiteish-pink or silver hair. Also Idoun of [[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Sealed Sword]].
* In ''VideoGame/NeverwinterNights'' this trope is rather common among female Aasimar and other celestials in Faerun. The half-celestials Melissa from the Trials of the Academy module and Kaelyn the Dove from ''VideoGame/NeverwinterNights2 Mask of the Betrayer'' both also have white hair.
* Seolla Schweizer and Calvina Coulange from ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars''. Granted, it's dark silver for Calvina, but otherwise, it fits.
* Avril Vent Fleur from ''VideoGame/{{Wild ARMs 5}}'' has silver hair, as part of her persona of MysteriousWaif.
* Ultima, the fallen angel, the final boss of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTactics'' has white hair.
** Same for her otherwise quite different-looking counterpart in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTacticsAdvance'' and ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII''.
* ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' has several such characters. Eirin Yagokoro and Fujiwara no Mokou have white hair and are probably the result of being immortal, though that raises the question of why Kaguya Houraisan has black hair. Sakuya Izayoi, despite supposedly being a normal human, has silver hair as well, which has lead many fans to speculate that she may not, in fact, be human at all. Letty Whiterock is a yuki-onna. Youmu Konpaku is a silver haired half-ghost (we don't know how that works either), and a straight up albino if you go by the fighting games' art. Momiji Inubashiri is a white wolf tengu. Then there's all the characters with very pale but still coloured hair...
* ''VideoGame/RuneFactory 2: A Fantasy VideoGame/HarvestMoon'' has several pale-grey-haired women of varying ages. One of them is the mother of a fairly young boy, so she could possibly have come by the color in the usual way, but two of the bachelorettes, who are probably under 25, have the same coloring.
** ''Rune Factory Frontier'' has Stella, who, in her usual appearance, is an old woman, making the white hair seem plausible. But an appearance by a ghost of her younger self reveals it was always that white.
* In ''VideoGame/HarvestMoon'', there's The Witch from Animal Parade, who lives deep in Fugu Forest and has silver hair.
** ''A New Beginning'' brings us Olivia. It seems to be suggested that silvery hair, combined with [[DarkSkinnedBlonde dark skin]], is how most people look in the Harvest Moon version of the Middle East--the vaguely Middle-Eastern-seeming Amir and Sanjay, along with the Wizard from ''Animal Parade'', all have white hair.
* High Inquisitor ''Whitemane'', one of the last bosses of the Scarlet Monastery dungeon in the ''WorldOfWarcraft'', has white hair.
** Following ''Tides of War'', Jaina Proudmoore has silver-white hair with one blonde streak.
* Lucia from ''LuminousArc'' has white hair and is a witch that specializes in [[LightEmUp light magic]]
* Lieselotte of ''VideoGame/ArcanaHeart'' combines this with ElegantGothicLolita and RedEyesTakeWarning to make one CreepyChild.
** The sequel adds Zenia, who kinda fits this trope in that her origin is completely shrouded in mystery.
** The sequel's final boss, Parace L'sia, also has white hair while in her human form. It changes to pink when she turns into her near-naked-elf-in-a-bathing-towel form though.
* Vanessa Lewis from the 4th ''VideoGame/VirtuaFighter'' game is a DarkSkinnedBlond with white hair.
* ''VideoGame/ValkyriaChronicles'' has Selvaria Bles, with long white hair, a general at the ripe old age of 22. [[spoiler:Alicia]]'s hair goes white only when she's "powered up", oddly, but it wouldn't be much of a surprise otherwise. Edy Nelson also has white hair, but she's normal.
** Aliasse from ''VideoGame/ValkyriaChroniclesII''. Silver hair and red eyes seems to be the mark of a Valkyria, either all the time or when a girl turns into one.
** Riela from ''VideoGame/ValkyriaChroniclesIII'' is a strange case; her normal hair is red at the top and turns silver midway, but when she goes into Valkyria form, her hair become entirely silver.
* Lenneth in ''ValkyrieProfile'' is a silver haired {{Valkyrie|s}}.
* [[AliceAllusion Alice]] Elliot from ''ShadowHearts'' is a platinum blonde haired exorcist that specializes in [[LightEmUp light magic]] and healing .
* ''VideoGame/TheIdolMaster'' was bound to fall into this trope sooner or later, and Takane is what came of it. And that's not necessarily a bad thing.
* Fiona Belli from ''VideoGame/HauntingGround'' has platinum blonde hair.
* Nami, one of the heroines of ''AoiShiro''. Kohaku also counts, although you'd be forgiven for thinking she's a PrettyBoy at first.
* Swan of ''CityOfHeroes'' and Ghost Widow of ''CityOfVillains'' both have white hair and both got their powers from magical sources.
* The White Dragon of ''{{Dreamfall}}'' has pure white hair in her human form
* ''Capcom Fighting [=Jam/Evolution=]'' and one of the ''StreetFighter Alpha 3'' portable versions had Ingrid. She was going to appear in the cancelled ''Capcom Fighting All-Stars'', and was revealed to have made an appearance on ''Tatsunoko vs. Capcom''. (In which version is still a mystery, though [[WhatCouldHaveBeen it could have been]] ''Ultimate All-Stars'', judging by a scan.)
** In SFA 3, [[spoiler:she takes the Psycho Drive from Bison]] in her ending. Also, [[spoiler:Rose can't figure out what her future looks like.]]
*** [[DanceBattler Elena]] from ''VideoGame/StreetFighterIII'' is another example.
* Juno Eclipse from ''VideoGame/TheForceUnleashed'' is the platinum blond haired LoveInterest of the main character.
* Jazz from ''[[VideoGame/JetSetRadio Jet Set Radio Future]]'' is a DarkSkinnedBlond with short white hair.
* AWitchsTale has Anne, the silver haired little girl whom Liddell befriends [[spoiler:in the second playthrough]]. Unfortunately, she [[spoiler:[[FaceHeelTurn grows up to become]] [[BigBad the Eld Witch]].]]
* Shih-Na, Agent Lang's whited haired subordinate in ''Miles Edgeworth AceAttorney Investigations''. She [[spoiler:turns out to be a recurring baddie in disguise.]]
* Ojou in VisualNovel/{{Suika}} has silver hair. People just assume she's a foreigner and overlook it, apparently.
* [[spoiler:Izanami]] from ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' has gray hair. Considering she looks essentially like a [[GenderFlip Gender-flipped version]] of the [[WhiteHairBlackHeart PC]], it's not surprising.
* Yonah and Kainé from ''VideoGame/NieR'' are white haired {{artificial human}}s. Well, [[{{Hermaphrodite}} Kainé's case is debatable...]]
* Jeanne from ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}'' has platinum blonde hair and like the raven haired [[CharacterTitle Bayonetta]], is a gunslinging witch.
* Mystica, the MagicalGirlWarrior, from the ''VisualNovel/FadingHearts'' VisualNovel. While her hair is described as silver from game dialogue, it is actually a combination of white and silver.
* Tomoki in ''{{Canvas 2}}''. It looks more blue than white on occasion, though.
* Naomi Kimishima from TraumaTeam has silver hair
* Isabella/Catelia and her "sisters" from ''AdvanceWars: Days of Ruin'' has white hair (although their hair has a greenish tint to it).
* Freudia from ''{{Rosenkreuzstilette}}'' has white hair and [[[[AnIcePerson specializes in ice magic]].
* Riven in ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'' has white hair. Considering her story involves her turning her back on her home city after seeing them abandon their principles of [[TheSocialDarwinist Social Darwinism]], she's probably closer to the wise-beyond-her-years variant than anything else.
* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXI'' the playable female [[OurElvesAreBetter Elvaan]], [[LittlePeople Tarutaru]], and [[CatFolk Mithra]] have white hair as an available option, the female Humes, however, do not.
* Noire and Uni from ''{{Neptunia}}'', at least when they activate [[SuperMode HDD]].
* Lady Calista in ''TheLastStory''. White hair, and a powerful magic user--in fact, her magic is ''so'' powerful, it can temporarily make people invincible! But she's not the only one--many magic users in ''TheLastStory'' have pale or silvery hair (from party member Yurick, who has silvery hair, to the random NPC magicians, who have shocking white hair), so it seems to be implied that magic frequently has that effect on hair.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Visual Novels]]
* The {{Nasuverse}} seems to love this trope, and it often indicates that the character in question isn't human:
** Ilyasviel von Einzbern from ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'', as well as her mother [[LightNovel/FateZero Irisviel]]. In their case it's genetic, since Einzbern homunculi are descendants (or, more appropriately, clones) of Lizleihi Justica von Einzbern, who had the same white hair and red eyes. They also carry parts of her personality and even memories.
** [[spoiler:[[SuperpoweredEvilSide Dark Sakura]] also has white hair and red eyes as part of her EvilMakeover.]]
** Caren Ortensia from ''VisualNovel/FateHollowAtaraxia'', as well as her deceased mother, Claudia.
** White Len from the ''MeltyBlood'' games has light grey hair, as well as Riesbyfe Stridberg.
* Chou from ''VisualNovel/BalladOfAnEveningButterfly'' has white hair. It probably has to do with her albinism, the fact she’s from a unusual species and her mysterious powers.
* Kud of ''VisualNovel/LittleBusters'' has soft grey/yellow flaxen hair that is treated by the game as a platinum blonde colour.
* Clair Vauxof Bernard and Virgilia from ''VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry'', though Virgilia's leans more towards silver and Clair's hair has a very pale green tint. On the human side, there's Kyrie Ushiromiya and her sister Kasumi Sumadera.

[[folder:Webcomics]]
* Tea is the secondary {{narrator}} of ''Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt'' has white hair. Stranger still, she has brown eyes.
* Bell in ''PowerpuffGirlsDoujinshi'' is a villainous [[WomanInWhite girl in white]] with white hair and eyes.
* Lily [[MeaningfulName white]] in ''{{Atland}}'' is a white haired priestess.
* ''Webcomic/{{Zoophobia}}'''s Penelope, who also [[WomanInWhite wears white]], is one.
* [[RobotGirl Ping]] from ''{{Megatokyo}}'' had white hair early on, before her body started changing in response to her character development.
* Lei'ella from ''Webcomic/{{Inverloch}}'', which marks her as one of the Severed, mortal elves with silver hair and golden eyes.
* Velma in ''IWasKidnappedByLesbianPiratesFromOuterSpace'' has white hair. Most likely does not mean anything magical, though.
* Kili Stormcrow, a shaman of ''TheDragonDoctors'', has bleach-white hair due to an incident as a child--Kili developed spiritual vision so strong that Kili's perception was trapped in the spirit world. Kili's hair has become permanently white. Of course, she [[GenderBender wasn't always a girl]]...well, [[{{Transsexual}} at least on the outside]].
* Zenobia in HazardsWake has white hair, possibly related to her (most likely) being a demon.
* Mariko from ''Webcomic/{{PHD}}'', a white haired minor recurring character and a former Japanese exchange grad student who quit her [=PhD=] to start her own company.
* [[{{Walkyverse}} Joyce]] is prematurely grey, even though, AlienAbduction aside, there's nothing especially magical about her, although she does develop into an AllLovingHero over the course of ''It's Walky!''
* {{Homestuck}}: Rose and Roxy both have white hair like [[WhiteHairBlackHeart Dave and Dirk]] and have shown an interest in magic, with Roxy being a big fan of wizards and Rose dual wielding magic wands as her WeaponOfChoice.
** Calliope [[spoiler:except that it's a white wig, and she's actually bald. She wears it to cosplay as her [[OneOfUs Trollsona]] who bears a striking resembalance to Calmasis, a character in Post-Scratch Rose's books.]]

[[folder:Web Original]]
* Cielle, the clairvoyant magic shop owner from ''BrokenSaints'', has white hair, courtesy of albinism.
* Nasha of ''{{SPAZ}}'' has white RapunzelHair, and while she's not magical, she's definitely a little strange
* Iriana Estchell of ''IlivaisX'' has this, due to her alteration for piloting a Phonos Weapon, removing most normal bodily functions, including pigmentation.
* Lilette Einmell from TalesOfHetalia has white hair, signaling she is a demon. In fact, this series runs on this trope, considering ''all'' demons have white hair.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'': Princess Yue's hair color was a plot point. She was actually born (or rather still-born) with dark hair like everyone else in the water-tribe (and pretty much everyone in the four nations). When the moon-spirit saved her infant life, her hair turned pure white and remained that way all her life.
* Charmcaster from ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}'' is a silver haired sorceress.
* Delilah from ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'' has white hair despite being a clone of Demona, who has red hair. This is from the discolouration that occurs with flawed cloning.
* Agent K from ''WesternAnimation/TheReplacements'' has platinum blonde hair.
* Drew Saturday from ''WesternAnimation/TheSecretSaturdays'' has white hair. This seems to be a genetic trait, since her 11-year old son has black hair with a white SkunkStripe (or whatever the equivalent is for the spiky crazy anime hair Zack has).
** In flashbacks, Drew's mom had white hair, too, so it is certainly genetic.
* Evil-Lyn from ''WesternAnimation/{{He-Man and the Masters of the Universe}}'' has white hair, though she rarely takes off her helmet to display it.
* Dani from ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'', although only when in ghost form...
* Nefertina from ''MummiesAlive'' had white hair and pale gray skin in her undead mummy form. There was some inconsistency in her coloring throughout the series. In some of the flashback scenes where she was still alive, sometimes, she was shown with black hair, and sometimes, she was shown with white hair. And yes, she, too, was voiced by Creator/CreeSummer (guess [[Disney/AtlantisTheLostEmpire which other character]] Cree voiced that Nefertina resembled!).
* "The Great and Powerful" [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Trixie]] has this sort of hair, though with shades of light blue.
* Queen La from ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfTarzan'' has white hair. Serves as a MythologyGag to the original Edgar Rice Burroughs stories describing the city of Opar as an Atlantean colony city, hence the design reference to ''Disney/AtlantisTheLostEmpire''.
* [[WinterRoyalLady The Ice Queen]] ([[AnIcePerson The Ice King]]'s DistaffCounterpart) from ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' has blue skin and white hair.
* Judy Jetson from ''WesternAnimation/TheJetsons'' has white hair. May have something to do with being from the future.
* Brunhilde from ''ThorTalesOfAsgard'' has white hair which make her stand out the rest of the valkyries whom she leads that have blonde hair.

[[caption-width-right:350: White hair and [[SupernaturalGoldEyes gold eyes]]? Yep. Magic user.]]

->''"Sophie! Your hair! It looks just like starlight. It's beautiful!"''
-->-- '''Howl''', ''Anime/HowlsMovingCastle''

In RealLife, white hair indicates either age (very young ''or'' very old), bleach, or albinism (which has its [[HeroicAlbino own]] [[EvilAlbino tropes]]). Not so in fiction, where white hair can occur naturally on women of any age. For a given value of "natural", that is: white locks mark their owner as special in some way. Maybe her hair is indicative of some spiritual (or outright magical) qualities, or maybe it's a hint of a nonhuman background. At the most mundane, it suggests [[WiseBeyondTheirYears wisdom beyond her years]]. It is a common mark of a MysteriousWaif.

Often, this is treated like a variation on blond hair—"platinum blond”—with the character having blue eyes to match. Unless she has [[RedEyesTakeWarning red eyes]], which would suggest she's an albino. Or she's a DarkSkinnedBlonde, in which case, it's probably a good idea to book it, fast.

The popularity of this trope probably stems from its status as a borderline-natural [[HairColors hair color]]: white hair on a young person strikes that delicate balance of being unusual but not [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair blatantly unrealistic]]. The color also lends itself well towards symbolism (purity or death, take your pick).

Her male counterpart, WhiteHairBlackHeart, is more strongly associated with Japanese media. He lacks the magical connotations and is more likely to be an antagonist or outright evil.

It bears repeating that these are young (or at least [[OlderThanTheyLook young]]-[[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld looking]]) characters, and their hair color is not indicative of age. For White Haired Pretty Old Ladies (assuming their hair wasn't white [[IWasQuiteALooker when they were young]]), see GrandmaWhatMassiveHotnessYouHave.

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* In ''Manga/PandoraHearts'', the [[EvilTwin Intention of the Abyss]], who is the twin of the [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Bloody Black Rabbit.]] She seems gentle and kind, but is actually quite mentally unstable. [[spoiler: practically a GenerationXerox of her mother, Lacie Baskerville.]]
* In ''Manga/{{X1999}}'', Princess Hinoto has white hair and is one of the most powerful magical beings in that world.
* Also by CLAMP, in ''Manga/{{Clover}}'', Suu has white hair and ''is'' the most powerful magical being in that world.
* The first Reinforce from ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAs'', the physical incarnation of a powerful WeaponOfMassDestruction. Ditto for Reinforce Zwei, her successor/daughter.
** The series also has Cinque, a [[HollywoodCyborg Combat Cyborg]] who serves as the older sister to most of her fellow [[QuirkyMinibossSquad Numbers]], which is kind of funny, considering that she's also the TokenMiniMoe of the group, with an [[EyepatchOfPower eyepatch]] and [[BadassLongcoat trenchcoat]], no less.
* Momo from ''LightNovel/BalladOfAShinigami'' is a white haired {{Shinigami}}.
* In ''Manga/{{Kurohime}}'' the titular character is a white haired gunslinging witch.
* ''Manga/RozenMaiden:'' Suigintou, Barasuishou and Kirakishou all have white hair. [[ArtificialHuman All three are dolls brought to life]].
* Zazie Rainyday from ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'', one of the more mysterious characters, is a DarkSkinnedBlond with white hair.
** There are some implications that Setsuna is one as well and merely dyes her hair because she considers her [[HeroicAlbino albinism]] to be a point of shame.
* Azmaria in ''Manga/ChronoCrusade'', a young girl with white hair and the power to heal people when she sings.
* Tessa from ''LightNovel/FullMetalPanic'' has white hair and additionally comes with an AloofBigBrother. Guess which [[WhiteHairBlackHeart hair color and alignment]] he sports...
** Though one novel describes their hair as "ash blonde", it is commonly depicted as white.
* Like the above example, Felli Loss from ''LightNovel/ChromeShelledRegios'' has silver hair and also has an AloofBigBrother sporting the same hair color.
* In ''LightNovel/IriyaNoSoraUFONoNatsu'', [[spoiler:Iriya's hair gets dyed white against her will.]]
* ''Manga/MermaidSaga'': Towa Kannagi's hair turned white after her sister, in an attempt to save her life, fed her mermaid blood.
* The sensual [[TheGunslinger shot]] and DarkActionGirl Hibari Ginza from ''Anime/SpeedGrapher'' has silver hair.
* Jiang Lihua aka Empress Tianzi is a white haired HeroicAlbino from ''Anime/CodeGeass'', also a MoeMoe ChineseGirl.
* Rally Cheyenne from ''Manga/SilentMobius'', at least, in flashbacks, since she's pushing 40 by the time of the main body of the series. (She's still good-looking.)
* Kisara of ''Anime/YuGiOh''. Unfortunately, her white hair and pale skin led to discrimination and loathing by the people of ancient Egypt.
* ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam00'' has a couple of examples in HRL SuperSoldier Soma Peires [[spoiler:a.k.a. Marie Parfacy]], and Celestial Being's ''[[Manga/Gundam00Sidestories Fereshte]]'' member Chall Acoustica. For the latter, her hair was naturally brown, until a reactor overload in her Gundam caused it to turn white (in addition to scarring her face and [[spoiler:killing all her comrades]]).
** Ditto on Soma's {{Expy}}, Laura Bodewig from ''LightNovel/InfiniteStratos''.
* The original Queen Serenity in ''Manga/SailorMoon''. Sailor Moon herself was originally supposed to be white haired when transformed and blonde as Usagi. This was vetoed by Naoko's editor Osa-P. In the manga, she does have white hair as Princess Serenity and Neo Queen Serenity, but not in the anime.
** Also, Sailor Star Healer has gray hair. In the anime, this is [[GenderBender only when she's a Senshi]]. It's all the time in the Manga.
** Vilui, part of the SmugSnake QuirkyMinibossSquad from the third season has pale blue hair.
* In the [[TheFilmOfTheBook anime]] [[Literature/HowlsMovingCastle adaptation]] of ''Literature/HowlsMovingCastle'', Sophie ends up with grey hair once her curse is broken and she has [[spoiler:come into her latent magical abilities.]]
* In ''Manga/AhMyGoddess'' Hild, a demon, and Urd, her half-demon half-goddess daughter, are {{dark skinned blond}}s with white hair.
* Chii from ''Manga/{{Chobits}}''.
** Though note that Chii's white hair is not a biologically occurring natural hair color in her world.
* The hair of all Anime/{{Claymore}}s turns white during their [[HalfHumanHybrid hybridization]] process.
** Well...many, but not quite all. First off, there's Clarice, who's hybridisation was a failure and whose hair is still dark enough to count as brunette, but even the manga's colour illustrations show some Claymore, like Miria, to have darker blonde hair, while the anime turns a few, like Helen, into outright golden blondes.
* Sylvie Lumiere from ''LightNovel/{{Baccano}}'', although it doesn't seem to be held as any indication of unusual abilities apart from [[{{immortality}} the most common one in the series]].
* Jo from ''Anime/BurstAngel'' has silver hair and [[spoiler:is later revealed to be a [[ArtificialHuman genetically engineered]] SuperSoldier.]]
* Hanekawa Tsubasa from ''LightNovel/{{Bakemonogatari}}'' [[spoiler:becomes one when possessed by a white-haired bakeneko.]]
* Nico Robin's mother in ''Manga/OnePiece'', Nico Olivia, had pure white hair. It's unknown how old she was when she died, but she didn't appear too old, and Robin herself was only 8.
* Sylia Stingray of ''Anime/BubblegumCrisis 2040'', if you can overlook drinking and/or drug problems and a few general mental issues.
** In the original, she had a weird ''haze grey'' hair -- which was [[EpilepticTrees taken up by some fans]] as one more irrefutable proof of her being [[RobotGirl Boomer]].
* Yumi from ''Anime/{{Ulysses 31}}'' belongs to a race of blue skinned, white haired human looking aliens called the Zotrians. The Zotrians are also known for their exceptional beauty.
* An interesting variation occurs in the ''LightNovel/{{Slayers}}'' series: protagonist Lina has [[FieryRedhead reddish colored hair]], but when she casts a particular high-level spell, her hair turns white. This occurs once in the LightNovel series, and twice in the anime.
** A straighter example is Millina, a white haired female mercenary and Lina's ally from the second half of the novels. However, she herself subverts this trope in that she is a rather average-leveled mage and swordswoman, and is [[PerpetualFrowner a bit of a grump.]]
* The titular heroine of ''Anime/{{Canaan}}''. JustifiedTrope in that [[spoiler:it actually turned white as a side effect of her exposure to the Ua virus.]]
** Horrifyingly subverted when [[spoiler:Liang Qi tries to give herself synesthesia and swallows capsules containing the Ua virus]]. Her originally dark hair turns white...[[spoiler:and then she suffers a truly horrible RasputinianDeath]].
* Mirajane of ''Manga/FairyTail'' has pure white hair and blue eyes. Apparently, though, it's hereditary and has nothing to do with her age, personality, or magic, since both Elfman and their dead little sister, Lisana, have white hair.
* Saiki from ''Manga/GhostTalkersDaydream'' is albino.
* Gretel from ''Manga/BlackLagoon'' is a young girl with white hair, and her brother Hansel was the [[WhiteHairBlackHeart male counterpart]] of this trope...[[SingleMindedTwins sometimes]]...[[VillainousCrossDresser we think]].
* Togame from ''LightNovel/{{Katanagatari}}'' has epically long white hair - long enough for Shichika to wrap around himself ''several times''.
* Fujiko from ''Manga/ZettaiKarenChildren'' is a white haired vampire
* [[LadyOfWar Astaroshe Asran]] from ''LightNovel/TrinityBlood'' has white hair ([[LockedIntoStrangeness except a single red forelock]]) in the original novels. She was changed to a [[AdaptationDyeJob natural blonde in the anime]].
* Alex from ''{{Nightschool}}'' has white hair [[spoiler:that used to be brown. She was LockedIntoStrangeness when she was cursed.]]
* Shiro from ''Manga/DeadmanWonderland'' is a HeroicAlbino ([[spoiler:[[SplitPersonality well, when her evil side doesn't takeover]]]]) with white hair and red eyes. The word "Shiro" in Japanese literally translates to ''White'' in English.
* Princess Romina from ''Anime/NinjaSenshiTobikage'' is a [[HumanAliens human looking alien]] with silvery-lavender hair.
* Matsuri from Manga/StrawberryMarshmallow is a rare non-magical, realistic example, where her hair has started graying early. It's entirely mundane, but is also a subject of some debate early on in the manga. Not quite white, but give her a few years...
* The eponymous Index from ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'' has silvery-white hair.
* [[spoiler:Victorique]] from ''LightNovel/{{Gosick}}'' becomes one in the final episode. Her hair was previously golden blonde. The reason for the sudden change is left unexplained in the series, but due to the events that took place shortly before said change, it's most likely a case of DiseaseBleach.
* Like [[Manga/MahouSenseiNegima Setsuna]], Himari of ''Manga/OmamoriHimari'' dyes her hair because she thinks her master prefers brunettes.
* Sakurako Saiki from ''Manga/SakuraGari'' is albino with white hair and red eyes.
* Belarus in ''Manga/AxisPowersHetalia'' has platinum blonde hair, though [[AdaptationDyeJob not in the anime]] where it's dark blonde. This fits, as the country's name means "White Russia". She is an ElegantGothicLolita, as well as a StrangeGirl and most notably, a {{Yandere}}.
* Koko Hekmatyar in ''Manga/{{Jormungand}}'' is a white-haired blue-eyed OneeSama.
* Meiko "Menma" Honma from ''Anime/AnoHanaTheFlowerWeSawThatDay''. The symbolism works both ways, as after dying as a child, she has grown, but her demeamor remains the same, so she's a ghost but also innocent.
* Tenshi/Angel from ''Anime/AngelBeats'' has long white hair to emphasise her [[TheQuietOne eeriness]] and [[EmotionlessGirl emotionlessness]].
* Princess Kikuri from ''Manga/ArataKangatari'' has long, white RapunzelHair. Subverted, as Kikuri only looks like a young girl; her youth is maintained with her powers, and [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld she's actually even older than the color of her hair would normally suggest.]]

** ''Comicbook/{{X-Men}}'''s Ororo "{{Storm}}" Munroe is a DarkSkinnedBlond(-ish) with, yes, blue eyes. This was eventually explained as a property she got from her mother's inherent magic. Her mother was an Egyptian princess.
** Rogue from the X-Men has white streaks in the front of her hair. In the [[Film/XMen1 first X-Men film]], this happens to Rogue after her power is drained by Magneto.
** ''SpiderMan'''s ClassyCatBurglar Felicia "Black Cat" Hardy. The recognizable white hair is part of her costume, in some versions.
** SilverSable originally had brown hair but it turned white after she witnessed the death of her mother by terrorists.
** Comicbook/DoctorStrange's disciple/lover/wife Clea, half-Faltinian princess of the Dark Dimension. She has a touch of AnimeHair as well.
** ''[[CaptainMarVell CaptainMarvel]]'''s Phyla-Vell a.k.a. Quasar, who's Titanian. Titanese? (With a few alien genes thrown in.)
*** She's also a rare short-haired White-Haired Pretty Girl (she has some ButchLesbian tendencies DependingOnTheWriter).
** An extremely fictionalised is depicted with d ''[[{{Marvel 1602}} 1602]]''.
** Songbird of the ''{{Thunderbolts}}''. Though that's not her real hair color (just about all of the Thunderbolts had their faces altered to fit their scheme) and it has a red streak through it.
** The ''X-Men'' villain Spiral, although she was originally a brunette before her genes were messed with.
** AlphaFlight's Walter Langkowski, aka Sasquatch, once [[GenderBender became a woman]] after returning from the dead (long story). Going by the name Wanda, she was young and pretty, and had snow-white hair in both her human and Sasquatch forms.
* Creator/DCComics:
** ''Comicbook/TeenTitans'''s Rose "Ravager" Wilson, who's been called platinum blonde at least once in a recent issue. Oddly enough, this is supposedly because her father, Deathstroke, also has white hair due to [[LockedIntoStrangeness the experiment that gave him his powers]], which brings up [[LamarckWasRight another trope]].
** Ice (Tora Olafsdotter). White hair, blue eyes, and she's the princess of a magical northern tribe.
** The first female Dove, Dawn Granger, in DC's ''HawkAndDove''. In her earlier appearances, only her Dove superhero form had white hair, while Dawn was a blonde. In more recent appearances pre-New 52, she was shown with white hair in both identities -- most likely because it made it easier to differentiate her from the ''other'' two major blonde female characters in ''Comicbook/BirdsOfPrey'' when she joined that team. In her appearances in the New 52 reboot, colorists went back to only coloring her hair white as Dove.
** Dream Girl / Dreamer, Princess Projectra and White Witch from the ''ComicBook/{{Legion Of Super-Heroes}}''. The latter is (usually) a HeroicAlbino.
** Hippolyta (Lyta) Hall, the second Fury, who featured prominently in ''ComicBook/TheSandman''. It's not entirely clear whether this is actually blonde hair drawn as white (since a younger Lyta is shown as a blonde, and one character refers to her as a blonde as an adult), or if it really is white.
** Abby Holland (née Abigail Arcane), Comicbook/SwampThing's wife, has snow-white hair with two black streaks running through it.
** Dolphin, frequently seen in Comicbook/{{Aquaman}} comics.
** When the MetalMen had to assume human identities (due to humanity turning against them and believing them to be dead), Platnium became a fashion model named [[StevenUlyssesPerhero Tina Platt]]. Fittingly, she's a platnium blonde.
** Essence from ''ComicBook/RedHoodAndTheOutlaws''.
* Jennifer Morgan, Travis Morgan's daughter and the sorceress supreme of Skartaris in ''TheWarlord''. She was originally blonde, but her hair turns white as she gains sorcerous power.
* CrossGen's ''The First'' had both white-haired Ingra and Wyture, neither of them human. ''Negation'' had Khlystek, the [[EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep Lizard Lady]], a reptilian alien with white hair.
* Gabrielle from ''{{Spawn}}'' is an [[OurAngelsAreDifferent angel]] who has pure white hair.
* Glory, Probe, and Suprema all have white hair, as drawn by RobLiefeld, who, being a fan of the look, also applied it for Dawn Granger, mentioned above.
** In Suprema's case, like {{Supreme}}, the white hair is a side effect of exposure to Supremium, the source of their powers.
* The comics version of ''ComicBook/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch'' used to have Platinum Blonde hair but recent version of her tend to have regular blonde hair.
* LadyDeath is a white haired, white skin goddess.
* Zia, a character from ''WetMoon'', claims to have gained white hair after surviving a car accident that took her arm.
* All of the [[ComicBook/TheMetabarons Metabarons]] have long white hair, if they have any. For some reason, even the women they bring into the family from other clans have long white hair.
* There's Wolf Gal, a white haired woman RaisedByWolves, from Lil Abner.

[[folder:Film]]
* Princess Nuala from ''Film/{{Hellboy}} II'' has long silvery hair, a common trait among elves.
* Kim Obrist of ''Film/{{Scanners}}'' is prematurely grey.
* Ni Chan, also know as the White-Haired Witch, from ''TheForbiddenKingdom''.
* Mirana, the White Queen from TimBurton's ''Film/AliceInWonderland''. She is one of the most powerful people in the country, matched only by her sister, the Red Queen.
* The eponymous character (Anne Schuyler) in ''Platinum Blonde''. In fact, JeanHarlow in most of her film roles.
* Mirage from ''TheIncredibles'' has snow-white hair that certainly makes her stick out since most of the cast have plausible hair colors.
* Aisling from ''Film/TheSecretOfKells'' has white hair. She's a [[TheFairFolk fairy]].
* Kida from Disney's ''Disney/AtlantisTheLostEmpire''. White hair seems to be a racial trait of all the Atlanteans, suggestive of their longevity (but not their age--the children have white hair, too).
* Lady Amalthea, the human form of the titular unicorn in ''WesternAnimation/TheLastUnicorn'' long flowing white hair.
** Pale enough to qualify for HeroicAlbino.
* Taarna from ''WesternAnimation/HeavyMetal''. Also, the girl at the end develops white hair after she's revealed as Taarna's reincarnation.
* Susan[=/=]Ginormica from ''WesternAnimation/MonstersVsAliens'' hair was originally brown but after getting hit by MagicMeteor her hair turns white and she grows into a [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever giant fifty foot woman]].
* Emily Browning as Babydoll in ''SuckerPunch'' combined with GirlishPigtails. Co-star Abbie Cornish has the same hair briefly when she's wearing a wig pretending to be Babydoll.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Literature]]
* The Childlike Empress has white hair in ''Literature/TheNeverendingStory''.
* In ''TheStand'', Nadine's hair [[LockedIntoStrangeness supernaturally turns white]] due to contact with Randall Flagg.
* The StarWarsExpandedUniverse has a few white haired characters: Winter Celchu, Leia's aide (first appearance in TimothyZahn's [[TheThrawnTrilogy Thrawn trilogy]], though she also featured in the XWingSeries comics), Brianna, the Last Handmaiden, and Atris, the Jedi historian (from ''KnightsOfTheOldRepublic II''). They seem mature, though not yet old.
** Though white hair and silver eyes are the most common hair/eye colors among the Echani.
** In Winter's case it's definitely not a sign of age: she's canonically established as having white hair [[TheHanSoloTrilogy at the age of 17]] and an [[StarWarsTales ambiguously canon]] comic shows her with it as a child.
* Lisbeth in ''Literature/OldYeller'', in an easy-to-miss line.
* Winter from ''Literature/LevenThumpsAndTheGatewayToFoo'' is from Foo and thus has ice powers even as a human.
* There was a young woman in Thomas M. Disch's ''The Prisoner'' novel with white hair. She didn't have any magic powers.
* Yvaine from ''Literature/{{Stardust}}'' is white-haired.
* The protagonist of AndreNorton's ''Forerunner: The Second Venture''. Dark skin, aquiline features, and white hair.
* In MercedesLackey's ''HeraldsOfValdemar'' books, using Adept-level magic bleaches your hair, so any young female Adepts eventually become examples of this trope.
** In Lackey's ''Literature/TheBlackSwan'', Odile von Rothbart has white hair. She suspects her mage father may have changed its color.
* Ramandu's platinum blonde haired daughter from ''ChroniclesOfNarnia'', who is actually ''a star''.
* The Faerie Queens and Ladies in ''TheDresdenFiles'' are described as beyond gorgeous and white-haired (although the Winter Lady streaks hers with dye.) And the hair of Thomas Raith's girlfriend, Justine, turned white after Thomas fed on her so deeply that she should have died. And a demon girl named Tessa has white hair in her rather cute human form.
* The entire Marat race in Jim Butcher's other series, ''Literature/CodexAlera'', tend to have white hair so a lot of them qualify as either this or WhiteHairBlackHeart. [[ActionGirl Kitai]] is the most prominent example, though there are several much less significant female Marat who are also this trope.
* The protagonist of the wuxia novel ''The Bride with White Hair'' by Liang Yusheng. There is a FilmOfTheBook too.
* [[Literature/{{Discworld}} Susan Sto-Helit]] has this, with one black streak; she's also a MagicalNanny and the granddaughter of [[GrimReaper Death]].
* In Creator/AnneMcCaffrey's ''The Rowan'', the titular character has white hair, which is also inherited by her descendants of both sexes as a white streak.
** Also in her Literature/AcornaSeries, the title character has white hair and is a human-unicorn hybrid, with healing and other magical powers through her horn, though the whiteness of her hair stems for her people's tendency to go white after spending large amounts of time in space.
* Daenerys Targaryen of ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire''. Targeryens tend to have silver-blonde hair as well as violet eyes due to their Valyrian blood, which has been maintained through the centuries with [[BrotherSisterIncest massive inbreeding]].
* Morgaine in Creator/CJCherryh's ''Literature/MorgaineCycle'' is white-haired and beautiful due to belonging to a half-blooded ancient race.
* Gwerath in ''Literature/TheSevenCitadels'' has silver hair, as did Kerish's late mother, Taana.
* [[spoiler:President]] Eloise Pritchart in the ''Literature/HonorHarrington'' series is frequently described as having "platinum" hair.
* The Black Cat in ''{{Spider-Man}}: The Darkest Hours'' has silver hair.
* [[http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://img1.fantasticfiction.co.uk/images/n53/n265312.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.fantasticfiction.co.uk/v/elizabeth-vaughan/white-star.htm&usg=__viz6KvuyXcEB3lCxnwAan8Lh5mo=&h=500&w=313&sz=28&hl=en&start=1&um=1&itbs=1&tbnid=MXA04UhvBZVJaM:&tbnh=130&tbnw=81&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dwhite%2Bstar%2Bnovel%26um%3D1%26hl%3Den%26client%3Dsafari%26sa%3DN%26rls%3Den%26tbs%3Disch:1 Lady High Priestess Evelyn]] from ''White Star'' and the other novels in the series by Elizabeth Vaughan has white hair with a matching white dress. She says that she used to be a brunette, but one day, she pushed her HealingHands to the limit to save a man who had been mortally wounded. She passed out, and woke up to find the man healed and her hair permanently snow white.
* Lucretia from ''Literature/{{Bystander}}'' has silver hair.
* Nyarko from ''[[NyarkoSan Haiyore! Nyarko-san]]'' in her human form has silver hair.
* Miranda in L. Jagi Lamplighter's ''ProsperosDaughter'' trilogy. In the BackStory, her brother Eramus had turned it to an old woman's hair in anger; she had been able to restore its health, but not its color. [[spoiler:When Eramus restores its original black, she doesn't like it, even though she recognizes the intent of generosity.]]
* Kiki in the ''KikiStrike'' series. It wasn't really much of a plot point, but it was used to show how unusual she was.
* [[TheChosenOne Jenna]], from Jane Yolen's ''Literature/GreatAltaSaga'', has pure white hair and black eyes, a sign of her status as a messianic figure; she is a heroine of legend who is reincarnated every few hundred years, always with white hair from birth.
* Ash March in ''SwordOfShadows'' has very pale blonde hair, putting her right between this and hair of gold, depending on the lighting.
* ''Literature/TheLastUnicorn'''s Lady Amalthea has white hair, which makes sense, given that she's actually a unicorn that was turned into a human.
* In Creator/PatriciaAMcKillip's "Oak Hill", Elaine's dye, she claims, will find its color on Maris's hair. What it does is turn it white, like a spider web.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Live-ActionTV]]
* Two of the ''SuperSentai'' main villainess, [[DengekiSentaiChangeman Queen Ahames]] and [[SeijuuSentaiGingaman Steerwoman Shelinda]] have white hair. Their character [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen arch]][[TheBaroness type]] however, don't match very well with the trope (their sexiness do though).
* Willow briefly had white hair in the finale of ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'', due to using powerful good magic to connect to every potential Slayer on the planet.
* Abby has white hair in ''{{Primeval}}'', but that's bleach and her only power is turning on fanboys.
** [[EvenTheGirlsWantHer There are some fan]]''[[EvenTheGirlsWantHer girls]]'' [[EvenTheGirlsWantHer who would like to debate that last statement you know]].
* Number Six from ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|Reimagined}}'' (though there are brunette and sandy blonde versions as well).
* Chiana in ''Series/{{Farscape}}''. A feature of her species, apparently - the women have white hair and the men have black hair.
* Yuki from the live-action version of ''CuteyHoney'' had white hair when she "flashed" into her battle form.
* Daenerys Targaryen (natural brunette Emilia Clarke in a white wig) in ''Series/GameOfThrones'', who has silver-blonde hair due to her Targaryen ancestry.
* Young Danish actress, [[http://berlingske.image.unwire.com/IP/ss/a.bimg.dk/node-images/627/5/620x/5627271-forbrydelsen-3.jpg?IP_w=800 Kaya Fjeldsted]], who plays Emilie in series 3 of Series/{{Forbrydelsen}} (''The Killing'') has naturally platinum-blonde hair so fair that it looks white.
* Zev (not Xev) Bellringer from Lexx starts out as a dirty blonde, but 790 is shown selecting white hair [[spoiler:(for both head and pubis)]] as part of her transformation. Furthermore, [[spoiler:in the uncut version of "Supernova", you can see that the makeup department kept continuity with this color scheme.]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Music]]
* Natasha Bedingfield's entire theme in the ''Between the Raindrops'' video is built around this trope. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dG6-bU6esKo Pale hair, pale skin, white dress, white horses...]] even her vocals are soft and ethereal.
* Music/LadyGaga has white hair in her ''Alejandro'' video, and several others (it's a wig).
* In her more recent live shows, Japanese singer/cellist Kanon Wakeshima [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UR_MM6SZMiI wears a white wig.]]
* [[https://fbcdn-sphotos-g-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/215992_1790897569816_4736733_n.jpg Donna Lynch]] of Music/EgoLikeness has platinum blonde hair.
%%* [[http://thematerialsleuth.files.wordpress.com/2012/06/die-antwoord-4.jpg?w=1024&h=680 Yo-Landi Visser]] of Die Antwoord.

[[folder: Professional Wrestling]]
* Angelina Love and Madison Rayne of The Beautiful People in TNA. Averted with team members Velvet Sky - who was two-toned - and Lacey Von Erich - who was honey blonde.
* The appropriately named Norwegian-Canadian indie wrestler Silvie Silver "Silver-Star".
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* Avacyn from MagicTheGathering's ''Innistrad'' pack is a white haired angel. Helps with the DarkIsNotEvil motiff since she wears all black.
* Many Sisters of Battle from ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' have white hair, though this is heavily implied to be the result of dyeing. Whether they're actually ''pretty'' varies from artist to artist, with some casting them as your standard pretty AmazonBrigade, and others sit down and think about how a life of fighting ([[HelmetsAreHardlyHeroic often without a helmet]]) would actually make them look like.
** Considering the CrapsackWorld they live in, it's entirely possible it's white due to stress.
** Or even age - the elite of humanity often receive treatments to keep them fighting for hundreds of years. Old Space Marines usually seem to opt for BaldOfAwesome instead.
* ''LegendOfTheFiveRings'': Some members of the Crane clan, both male and females, dye their hair white in honor of their ancestors.
* Dark elves, or drow, also count as DarkSkinnedBlonde ([[FridgeLogic despite living underground for thousands of years, which you'd think would have the opposite effect]]; though, at least in one gameworld, they're described as being cursed into that form so none would mistake them). And [[OurElvesAreBetter since they're elves]], they tend to be very good-looking (drow are even described as being more attractive on average than other elves, on top of looking exotic). They took this to massive race-wide MsFanservice levels. The good ones took to dancing naked in the moonlight. The [[AlwaysChaoticEvil evil ones]] considered wearing armor admission of [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder fear and weakness before rival houses]]. The females would often wander their cities nude or nearly so, flaying alive anyone who was DistractedByTheSexy with [[WhipItGood whips made of snakes]], unless they decided the male would make a worthy addition to their harem and let him audition for the role of pleasure slave. Pretty is not nice at all.
* The Whites in ''CthulhuTech'' are completely white (skin, eyes, and hair), on the average more attractive than either humans or Nazzadi, AND all natural para-psychics.
* ''{{Pathfinder}}'': Feiya the iconic witch, Merisiel the iconic Rogue, and Seoni the iconic sorceress all have white hair (and are pretty). And Seltyiel, the iconic Magus who has WhiteHairBlackHeart, so apparently Paizo is fond of this trope.
* Arianna from ''{{Exalted}}''. There are others, but Arianna is the only one on the cover of the primary rulebook.
* ''TabletopGame/{{Nobilis}}'' has the [[HumanoidAbomination Excrucian]] Iolithae Septimian, a ConsummateLiar who is able to deceive reality itself.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Theater]]
* In some theatrical adaptations of ''Literature/AChristmasCarol'', such as the one by Seattle's A Contemporary Theatre, the Ghost of Christmas Past is depicted with white or light blonde hair.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* The heroine of the Nintendo DS game ''VideoGame/AnotherCode: Two Memories'' (''[[MarketBasedTitle Trace Memory]]'' [[UsefulNotes/BritishEnglish across the pond]]) has white hair. This is a little strange considering her father has blonde hair and mother has black hair.
* ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic II'' had Jedi Master Atris has white hair despite being human.
** And Handmaiden[[spoiler:/Brianna]], with her whole race, the Echani pretty much look human but they all have white hair and silver eyes.
* Nu Wa from ''[[VideoGame/WarriorsOrochi Warriors Orochi 2]]'' is a white haired goddess.
* Sierra Mikain from ''VideoGame/SuikodenII'' fits every aspect of this trope to a T, from the beautiful white hair to the mysterious personality.
* Gwendonlyn from ''VideoGame/OdinSphere'' has white hair. Seems to be a common trait for Valkyries.
* The Viera from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTacticsAdvance'' (and, later, ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII'' and ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTacticsA2''), who regard it as a blessing from the gods. Also, [[spoiler:Ritz, subverted in that she hates it (because she gets teased about it constantly, and resents the misery it causes her and her mother), and therefore has it dyed red up to the epilogue.]]
** Actually, it's the viera spirits, not the gods. Shara regards white hair as [[spoiler:the best gift a human could have.]]
** And [[ClassyCatBurglar Adelle]] from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTacticsA2'' has white hair.
* Amoretta of ''VideoGame/GrimGrimoire'', the [[spoiler:[[ArtificialHuman Homunculus]] with the soul of an angel.]]
* Zelda's lady-in-waiting, Impa (the 30-something AmazonianBeauty from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'' has grey hair, natch, not the old lady from the other installments).
* Sapphire from ''{{Disgaea 3}}'' has white hair. More of a dirty white than pure white, though.
* Raine Sage of ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'' like her little brother is a white haired elf ([[spoiler:she's really half elf]]).
** [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} Grune]] in ''VideoGame/TalesOfLegendia'' has white hair. [[spoiler:She's later revealed to be a goddess.]]
** [[spoiler:Musee Maxwell]] in ''VideoGame/TalesOfXillia'' has white hair and [[SupernaturalGoldEyes gold eyes]] to boot.
* The current page image: Micaiah of ''Fire Emblem: [[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Radiant Dawn]]''. She's called the Silver-Haired Maiden, and yes, that's a plot point. [[YouCanRunButYouCantHide Several]] [[MysteriousWaif plot]] [[HalfHumanHybrid points]].
** For that matter, there's also Ninian the Dancer from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe'', and the shaman Diadora and [[spoiler:her daughter]] Julia in ''Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War''. Not ''quite'' white in these cases, but [[HairColorDissonance close enough]]. Similarly, Ishtar from the same game is either portrayed with whiteish-pink or silver hair. Also Idoun of [[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Sealed Sword]].
* In ''VideoGame/NeverwinterNights'' this trope is rather common among female Aasimar and other celestials in Faerun. The half-celestials Melissa from the Trials of the Academy module and Kaelyn the Dove from ''VideoGame/NeverwinterNights2 Mask of the Betrayer'' both also have white hair.
* Seolla Schweizer and Calvina Coulange from ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars''. Granted, it's dark silver for Calvina, but otherwise, it fits.
* Avril Vent Fleur from ''VideoGame/{{Wild ARMs 5}}'' has silver hair, as part of her persona of MysteriousWaif.
* Ultima, the fallen angel, the final boss of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTactics'' has white hair.
** Same for her otherwise quite different-looking counterpart in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTacticsAdvance'' and ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII''.
* ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' has several such characters. Eirin Yagokoro and Fujiwara no Mokou have white hair and are probably the result of being immortal, though that raises the question of why Kaguya Houraisan has black hair. Sakuya Izayoi, despite supposedly being a normal human, has silver hair as well, which has lead many fans to speculate that she may not, in fact, be human at all. Letty Whiterock is a yuki-onna. Youmu Konpaku is a silver haired half-ghost (we don't know how that works either), and a straight up albino if you go by the fighting games' art. Momiji Inubashiri is a white wolf tengu. Then there's all the characters with very pale but still coloured hair...
* ''VideoGame/RuneFactory 2: A Fantasy VideoGame/HarvestMoon'' has several pale-grey-haired women of varying ages. One of them is the mother of a fairly young boy, so she could possibly have come by the color in the usual way, but two of the bachelorettes, who are probably under 25, have the same coloring.
** ''Rune Factory Frontier'' has Stella, who, in her usual appearance, is an old woman, making the white hair seem plausible. But an appearance by a ghost of her younger self reveals it was always that white.
* In ''VideoGame/HarvestMoon'', there's The Witch from Animal Parade, who lives deep in Fugu Forest and has silver hair.
** ''A New Beginning'' brings us Olivia. It seems to be suggested that silvery hair, combined with [[DarkSkinnedBlonde dark skin]], is how most people look in the Harvest Moon version of the Middle East--the vaguely Middle-Eastern-seeming Amir and Sanjay, along with the Wizard from ''Animal Parade'', all have white hair.
* High Inquisitor ''Whitemane'', one of the last bosses of the Scarlet Monastery dungeon in the ''WorldOfWarcraft'', has white hair.
** Following ''Tides of War'', Jaina Proudmoore has silver-white hair with one blonde streak.
* Lucia from ''LuminousArc'' has white hair and is a witch that specializes in [[LightEmUp light magic]]
* Lieselotte of ''VideoGame/ArcanaHeart'' combines this with ElegantGothicLolita and RedEyesTakeWarning to make one CreepyChild.
** The sequel adds Zenia, who kinda fits this trope in that her origin is completely shrouded in mystery.
** The sequel's final boss, Parace L'sia, also has white hair while in her human form. It changes to pink when she turns into her near-naked-elf-in-a-bathing-towel form though.
* Vanessa Lewis from the 4th ''VideoGame/VirtuaFighter'' game is a DarkSkinnedBlond with white hair.
* ''VideoGame/ValkyriaChronicles'' has Selvaria Bles, with long white hair, a general at the ripe old age of 22. [[spoiler:Alicia]]'s hair goes white only when she's "powered up", oddly, but it wouldn't be much of a surprise otherwise. Edy Nelson also has white hair, but she's normal.
** Aliasse from ''VideoGame/ValkyriaChroniclesII''. Silver hair and red eyes seems to be the mark of a Valkyria, either all the time or when a girl turns into one.
** Riela from ''VideoGame/ValkyriaChroniclesIII'' is a strange case; her normal hair is red at the top and turns silver midway, but when she goes into Valkyria form, her hair become entirely silver.
* Lenneth in ''ValkyrieProfile'' is a silver haired {{Valkyrie|s}}.
* [[AliceAllusion Alice]] Elliot from ''ShadowHearts'' is a platinum blonde haired exorcist that specializes in [[LightEmUp light magic]] and healing .
* ''VideoGame/TheIdolMaster'' was bound to fall into this trope sooner or later, and Takane is what came of it. And that's not necessarily a bad thing.
* Fiona Belli from ''VideoGame/HauntingGround'' has platinum blonde hair.
* Nami, one of the heroines of ''AoiShiro''. Kohaku also counts, although you'd be forgiven for thinking she's a PrettyBoy at first.
* Swan of ''CityOfHeroes'' and Ghost Widow of ''CityOfVillains'' both have white hair and both got their powers from magical sources.
* The White Dragon of ''{{Dreamfall}}'' has pure white hair in her human form
* ''Capcom Fighting [=Jam/Evolution=]'' and one of the ''StreetFighter Alpha 3'' portable versions had Ingrid. She was going to appear in the cancelled ''Capcom Fighting All-Stars'', and was revealed to have made an appearance on ''Tatsunoko vs. Capcom''. (In which version is still a mystery, though [[WhatCouldHaveBeen it could have been]] ''Ultimate All-Stars'', judging by a scan.)
** In SFA 3, [[spoiler:she takes the Psycho Drive from Bison]] in her ending. Also, [[spoiler:Rose can't figure out what her future looks like.]]
*** [[DanceBattler Elena]] from ''VideoGame/StreetFighterIII'' is another example.
* Juno Eclipse from ''VideoGame/TheForceUnleashed'' is the platinum blond haired LoveInterest of the main character.
* Jazz from ''[[VideoGame/JetSetRadio Jet Set Radio Future]]'' is a DarkSkinnedBlond with short white hair.
* AWitchsTale has Anne, the silver haired little girl whom Liddell befriends [[spoiler:in the second playthrough]]. Unfortunately, she [[spoiler:[[FaceHeelTurn grows up to become]] [[BigBad the Eld Witch]].]]
* Shih-Na, Agent Lang's whited haired subordinate in ''Miles Edgeworth AceAttorney Investigations''. She [[spoiler:turns out to be a recurring baddie in disguise.]]
* Ojou in VisualNovel/{{Suika}} has silver hair. People just assume she's a foreigner and overlook it, apparently.
* [[spoiler:Izanami]] from ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' has gray hair. Considering she looks essentially like a [[GenderFlip Gender-flipped version]] of the [[WhiteHairBlackHeart PC]], it's not surprising.
* Yonah and Kainé from ''VideoGame/NieR'' are white haired {{artificial human}}s. Well, [[{{Hermaphrodite}} Kainé's case is debatable...]]
* Jeanne from ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}'' has platinum blonde hair and like the raven haired [[CharacterTitle Bayonetta]], is a gunslinging witch.
* Mystica, the MagicalGirlWarrior, from the ''VisualNovel/FadingHearts'' VisualNovel. While her hair is described as silver from game dialogue, it is actually a combination of white and silver.
* Tomoki in ''{{Canvas 2}}''. It looks more blue than white on occasion, though.
* Naomi Kimishima from TraumaTeam has silver hair
* Isabella/Catelia and her "sisters" from ''AdvanceWars: Days of Ruin'' has white hair (although their hair has a greenish tint to it).
* Freudia from ''{{Rosenkreuzstilette}}'' has white hair and [[[[AnIcePerson specializes in ice magic]].
* Riven in ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'' has white hair. Considering her story involves her turning her back on her home city after seeing them abandon their principles of [[TheSocialDarwinist Social Darwinism]], she's probably closer to the wise-beyond-her-years variant than anything else.
* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXI'' the playable female [[OurElvesAreBetter Elvaan]], [[LittlePeople Tarutaru]], and [[CatFolk Mithra]] have white hair as an available option, the female Humes, however, do not.
* Noire and Uni from ''{{Neptunia}}'', at least when they activate [[SuperMode HDD]].
* Lady Calista in ''TheLastStory''. White hair, and a powerful magic user--in fact, her magic is ''so'' powerful, it can temporarily make people invincible! But she's not the only one--many magic users in ''TheLastStory'' have pale or silvery hair (from party member Yurick, who has silvery hair, to the random NPC magicians, who have shocking white hair), so it seems to be implied that magic frequently has that effect on hair.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Visual Novels]]
* The {{Nasuverse}} seems to love this trope, and it often indicates that the character in question isn't human:
** Ilyasviel von Einzbern from ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'', as well as her mother [[LightNovel/FateZero Irisviel]]. In their case it's genetic, since Einzbern homunculi are descendants (or, more appropriately, clones) of Lizleihi Justica von Einzbern, who had the same white hair and red eyes. They also carry parts of her personality and even memories.
** [[spoiler:[[SuperpoweredEvilSide Dark Sakura]] also has white hair and red eyes as part of her EvilMakeover.]]
** Caren Ortensia from ''VisualNovel/FateHollowAtaraxia'', as well as her deceased mother, Claudia.
** White Len from the ''MeltyBlood'' games has light grey hair, as well as Riesbyfe Stridberg.
* Chou from ''VisualNovel/BalladOfAnEveningButterfly'' has white hair. It probably has to do with her albinism, the fact she’s from a unusual species and her mysterious powers.
* Kud of ''VisualNovel/LittleBusters'' has soft grey/yellow flaxen hair that is treated by the game as a platinum blonde colour.
* Clair Vauxof Bernard and Virgilia from ''VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry'', though Virgilia's leans more towards silver and Clair's hair has a very pale green tint. On the human side, there's Kyrie Ushiromiya and her sister Kasumi Sumadera.

* Tea is the secondary {{narrator}} of ''Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt'' has white hair. Stranger still, she has brown eyes.
* Bell in ''PowerpuffGirlsDoujinshi'' is a villainous [[WomanInWhite girl in white]] with white hair and eyes.
* Lily [[MeaningfulName white]] in ''{{Atland}}'' is a white haired priestess.
* ''Webcomic/{{Zoophobia}}'''s Penelope, who also [[WomanInWhite wears white]], is one.
* [[RobotGirl Ping]] from ''{{Megatokyo}}'' had white hair early on, before her body started changing in response to her character development.
* Lei'ella from ''Webcomic/{{Inverloch}}'', which marks her as one of the Severed, mortal elves with silver hair and golden eyes.
* Velma in ''IWasKidnappedByLesbianPiratesFromOuterSpace'' has white hair. Most likely does not mean anything magical, though.
* Kili Stormcrow, a shaman of ''TheDragonDoctors'', has bleach-white hair due to an incident as a child--Kili developed spiritual vision so strong that Kili's perception was trapped in the spirit world. Kili's hair has become permanently white. Of course, she [[GenderBender wasn't always a girl]]...well, [[{{Transsexual}} at least on the outside]].
* Zenobia in HazardsWake has white hair, possibly related to her (most likely) being a demon.
* Mariko from ''Webcomic/{{PHD}}'', a white haired minor recurring character and a former Japanese exchange grad student who quit her [=PhD=] to start her own company.
* [[{{Walkyverse}} Joyce]] is prematurely grey, even though, AlienAbduction aside, there's nothing especially magical about her, although she does develop into an AllLovingHero over the course of ''It's Walky!''
* {{Homestuck}}: Rose and Roxy both have white hair like [[WhiteHairBlackHeart Dave and Dirk]] and have shown an interest in magic, with Roxy being a big fan of wizards and Rose dual wielding magic wands as her WeaponOfChoice.
** Calliope [[spoiler:except that it's a white wig, and she's actually bald. She wears it to cosplay as her [[OneOfUs Trollsona]] who bears a striking resembalance to Calmasis, a character in Post-Scratch Rose's books.]]

* Cielle, the clairvoyant magic shop owner from ''BrokenSaints'', has white hair, courtesy of albinism.
* Nasha of ''{{SPAZ}}'' has white RapunzelHair, and while she's not magical, she's definitely a little strange
* Iriana Estchell of ''IlivaisX'' has this, due to her alteration for piloting a Phonos Weapon, removing most normal bodily functions, including pigmentation.
* Lilette Einmell from TalesOfHetalia has white hair, signaling she is a demon. In fact, this series runs on this trope, considering ''all'' demons have white hair.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'': Princess Yue's hair color was a plot point. She was actually born (or rather still-born) with dark hair like everyone else in the water-tribe (and pretty much everyone in the four nations). When the moon-spirit saved her infant life, her hair turned pure white and remained that way all her life.
* Charmcaster from ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}'' is a silver haired sorceress.
* Delilah from ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'' has white hair despite being a clone of Demona, who has red hair. This is from the discolouration that occurs with flawed cloning.
* Agent K from ''WesternAnimation/TheReplacements'' has platinum blonde hair.
* Drew Saturday from ''WesternAnimation/TheSecretSaturdays'' has white hair. This seems to be a genetic trait, since her 11-year old son has black hair with a white SkunkStripe (or whatever the equivalent is for the spiky crazy anime hair Zack has).
** In flashbacks, Drew's mom had white hair, too, so it is certainly genetic.
* Evil-Lyn from ''WesternAnimation/{{He-Man and the Masters of the Universe}}'' has white hair, though she rarely takes off her helmet to display it.
* Dani from ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'', although only when in ghost form...
* Nefertina from ''MummiesAlive'' had white hair and pale gray skin in her undead mummy form. There was some inconsistency in her coloring throughout the series. In some of the flashback scenes where she was still alive, sometimes, she was shown with black hair, and sometimes, she was shown with white hair. And yes, she, too, was voiced by Creator/CreeSummer (guess [[Disney/AtlantisTheLostEmpire which other character]] Cree voiced that Nefertina resembled!).
* "The Great and Powerful" [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Trixie]] has this sort of hair, though with shades of light blue.
* Queen La from ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfTarzan'' has white hair. Serves as a MythologyGag to the original Edgar Rice Burroughs stories describing the city of Opar as an Atlantean colony city, hence the design reference to ''Disney/AtlantisTheLostEmpire''.
* [[WinterRoyalLady The Ice Queen]] ([[AnIcePerson The Ice King]]'s DistaffCounterpart) from ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' has blue skin and white hair.
* Judy Jetson from ''WesternAnimation/TheJetsons'' has white hair. May have something to do with being from the future.
* Brunhilde from ''ThorTalesOfAsgard'' has white hair which make her stand out the rest of the valkyries whom she leads that have blonde hair.

* [[{{Walkyverse}} Joyce]] is prematurely grey, even though, AlienAbduction aside, there's nothing especially magical about her, although she does develop into TheMessiah (our definition, not MessianicArchetype, which is closer to Walkerton) over the course of ''It's Walky!''

* [[spoiler:Victorique]] from ''LightNovel/{{Gosick}}'' [[spoiler:becomes one in the final episode. Her hair was previously golden blonde. The reason for the sudden change is left unexplained in the series, but due to the events that took place shortly before said change, it's most likely a case of DiseaseBleach.]]

* Mirajane of ''Manga/FairyTail'' has pure white hair and blue eyes. Apparently, though, it's hereditary and has nothing to do with her age, personality, or magic, since both Elfman and their dead little sister, Lisana, have (had, in Lisana's case) white hair.
** [[spoiler:Lisana still has hers. Turns out, she's NotQuiteDead after all.]]
