[[CaptainObvious Most characters have hair]]. But some (usually of a supernatural ilk) have hair that is either composed of flames, or simply takes the form of a fire on the individual's head. Usually an indicator of [[EvilIsBurningHot villainy]]. This is a form of ElementalHair for [[PlayingWithFire characters]] who are literal {{Fiery Redhead}}s.

See also HotWings. Often a part of BurningWithAnger. If extended to the entire body it becomes WreathedInFlames.

[[folder: Anime and Manga ]]

* Lordgenome, who is normally [[BaldOfEvil bald]] and [[BeardOfEvil goatee'd]], sprouts a fine head of flame during his fight with Simon in ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann''. His Spiral Power's BattleAura is red, and he's got such tremendous amounts of it that the FlamingHair effect appears whenever he gets serious. He isn't the only one who can do this, but he's the only one whose BattleAura focus is on his (former) hair. Played UpToEleven at the movie, where he gets serious enough to do interstellar travel on foot, and so he gets the GodivaHair effect ''with his flaming pubic hair''.
* In ''Anime/DieBuster'', physics-breaking Exotic Manuever normally manifests as bright blue light from the forehead, but when Lal'C gets really, teleport-a-gas-giant's-core-and-smash-it-into-your-face level serious it goes beyond that and her hair turns into a blue-white flames. Similar effect is constantly in effect for Buster Machine #7 in active form. Dix-Nieuf, after consuming the degeneration engine, manifests the flames through his cloak.
* In ''LightNovel/ShakuganNoShana'', Shana's hair, while normal in shape, is colored like a blazing flame with ember-like sparks flying off. It's even [[MeaningfulName part of her title]]. The same applies to Mathilde Saint-Omer, the previous Flame-Haired Blazing-Eyed Hunter.
* [[PlayingWithFire Burner the Fire Demon]] from ''Manga/{{Yaiba}}''. His colleague [[MakingASplash Rain]] sports what can be called "Watering" Hair.
* Akari's MagicalGirl form in ''Anime/IlSolePenetraLeIllusioni''. While everyone gets giant hair when they transform, none of the others get anything quite as cool.
* In ''Manga/FairyTail'', Flare Corona fights with PrehensileHair, and she can set it on fire for extra damage.

* An obscure ''Comicbook/{{Aquaman}}'' foe, Karla Fire-Hair, had this as her power, which conveniently worked underwater.
