* British children's comic ''ComicBook/TheDandy'' features one issue in which giant cowboy Desperate Dan has to get ready for a date. First he shaves, by dangling over a volcano to burn off the stubble. Then he gets a haircut by finding an Indian with a sharp-looking tomahawk, punching him in the face, and ducking at just the right moment...
* {{Storm}} had this happen to her once, during a duel with [[KnifeNut Marrow]]. It led to a second [[ImportantHaircut dramatic hairstyle change from long and flowing to short and practical]] (and this one was much more stylish than her original Mohawk), though her character didn't change quite as much this time.
** She does it again much recently, combined with an ImportantHaircut. After being dumped by the ComicBook/BlackPanther following ''ComicBook/AvengersVsXMen'', she decides a new look is in order and asks {{Wolverine}} to cut her hair, returning her to her mohawk variation.
* ''ComicBook/UsagiYojimbo'': While fighting Noriko, [[spoiler: her half-sister]], Tomoe gets a chunk of her hair sliced off as she ducks under a sword swing. Tomoe says nothing, but Noriko remarks "Bah! Your hair was too long, anyway."
** While he doesn't make a big deal of it, [[ComicBook/UsagiYojimbo Katsuichi-sensei]] loses a chunk of hair during his duel with Koji.
* {{Nightwing}}'s first issue includes him getting a close call haircut. Justified due to him sporting a very long ponytail (it was the 90s).
