[[caption-width-right:230:Because we're worth it!]]

->''There's beauty, stranger...in thy soft form;\\
Thy fine, bright hair, not coarse like the hard athlete's,\\
Is mantling o'er thy cheek, warm with desire...\\
Wooing Aphrodite with thy loveliness.''
-->-- '''Pentheus describes Dionysus''', ''Theatre/{{Bacchae}}''

How do you make a PrettyBoy even prettier? Give him long (shoulder-length or longer), flowing tresses of glossy hair. Bonus points for wearing it loose, no matter how impractical this may be.

A lot of these fall under ViewerGenderConfusion, because LongHairIsFeminine (if the confusion occurs in-universe, it's an example of DudeLooksLikeALady). Many fall under MrFanservice.

!!Examples

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
%%* ''{{Loveless}}'': Soubi, Nisei, and the male Zeroes.
%%* ''FinderSeries'': Feilong.
%%* ''100% Perfect Girl'': Jarte's secretary Benjamin.
%%* ''LightNovel/AiNoKusabi'': Iason, many of the Elites in general and Guy.
%%* ''KyouKaraMaou'': Gunter and Saralegui.
%%* ''The CrimsonSpell'': Havi.
%%* The ''Anime/YuGiOh'' series is guilty of this trope. You've got Bakura, Pegasus, Otogi, Espa Roba, [[DarkSkinnedBlonde Marik]], Dartz and Sigfried.
%%** Continuing with ''Anime/YuGiOhGX'': [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair Ryo]], [[HotForTeacher Daitokuji-sensei]], Fubuki...
%%* ''Manga/DescendantsOfDarkness'': Dr Watari, Sohryuu and Nagare (Hisoka's father).
* ''Manga/CardcaptorSakura'': Yue's braid of silver hair trails 2 feet behind him on the floor (or more, if it's a CLAMP illustration). Makes sense since he represents Yin and, through that, the Feminine aspect.
* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'':
** Byakuya has long black hair that falls just past his shoulders. As a stoic nobleman with raven black hair and pale skin, he tends to be very popular with the women. The Shinigami Women's Institute keeps voting him the sexiest male shinigami in their annual polls.
** Ukitake has waist length white hair and is considered gentle, kind, and attractive. His HeterosexualLifePartner, Kyoraku, keeps referring to him as a ladykiller because female shinigami can be reduced to blushing jelly if he so much as smiles at them. His female third seat, Kiyone, is hopelessly in love with him.
** Yumichika, notorious for his beauty and his obsession with beauty, used to have long hair that was fashionably styled until he joined the shinigami, whereupon he cut his hair to chin-length.
* ''Manga/InuYasha'':
** Inuyasha has long white hair reminiscent of the lion-dog figure in kabuki plays. For all his abrasive personality, he's considered rather cute, and the dog ears half hidden in his hair tend to be irresistible for women to try and touch. Even Kagome's ''mother'' gave in to the urge. He's particularly popular with Jakotsu... much to his chagrin.
** Sesshoumaru is a tall, slim, beautiful youkai of very high aristocratic rank with long, flowing white hair that falls to his waist. The anime takes this to extremes, however, by lengthening his hair down to his ''knees''. Kagura, who had commented upon first seeing Inuyasha and Kouga that they weren't her type, fell for Sesshoumaru the moment she laid eyes on him. Jakotsu thought he was very attractive as well, but by then had his heart set on Inuyasha. The anime also gave him his very own StalkerWithACrush who fell for him the moment she saw him.
** Naraku took over the body of a handsome young human lord to create the shell of the half-youkai that he became. As a result, he has long black hair styled as a young lord would wear it. Unusually in the series, his hair is actually wavy rather than dead straight.
* ''Manhua/YouthGoneWild'' has several, though Lu Kai is most notable, completing the look with GuyLiner and lipstick.
%%* ''Manga/FushigiYuugi'' has Hotohori, Nuriko, Tomo (without the makeup), Tatara, Tenkou, and Renhou's demon form. Its prequel series ''FushigiYuugiGenbuKaiden'' adds Uruki, Hikitsu, and Hagus to that list.
* ''Manga/RurouniKenshin'': Kenshin, referred to in the first chapter as "Handsome Swordsman of Legend", has long red hair. His impossibly youthful looks are lampshaded when two of the cast are surprised to learn he's actually 28.
* Ryuunosuke of ''LightNovel/SakurasouNoPetNaKanojo'', being a genius {{hikikomori}}, barely has time cutting his hair, which has now grown to [[RapunzelHair feminine lengths]]. He's also so pretty that he's once forced to wear a maid outfit.
* ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'':
** Kurama (normally red, [[spoiler: but turns white when he transforms into Youko]]), to the extent he suffers from a bad case of EvenTheGuysWantHim amoung the villians.
** Karasu has long black hair (which turns blond when he powers up). Considering his sadistic nature, this leads to a really creepy FaceOfAnAngelMindOfADemon effect.
** Shishiwakamaru is this in universe as well as out. He has a whole entourage of fangirls cheering for him and Yusuke jokes he should start a boy band because he "already has the looks for it" when he taunts him and his team.
** Sakyou, meanwhile, has more of a mullet, leads to the same FaceOfAnAngelMindOfADemon effect as Karasu

%%* ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'': Edward, as he's {{Bishonen}} and has long hair. Al counts as well, though when he's found in [[spoiler:the GateOfTruth]], he's not exactly "pretty".

%%* ''Manga/{{Tsukigasa}}'': Azuma.

%%* ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}'': Luke Valentine.
%%* ''{{No6}}'': Nezumi's hair is long enough to tie back, and he's certainly bishie enough.
%%* ''Manga/BlackCat'': Charden Flamberg.

%%* ''Manga/KarakuridoujiUltimo'': Rune and Jealous/Jealousy.

%%* Tomoe from ''Manga/KamisamaKiss'' normally has a short pageboy hair cut but we see in flashbacks he used to wear his hair long and twice in the story he reverts to a longer hair style.
* Griffith, the resident {{Bishonen}} from ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' who hordes of male and female characters have a fallen for and obsessed over during the course of the series, has waist-length white waves that the fandom has affectionately dubbed "cloud hair".
%%* ''Manga/AngelCrush'' : Michael Finch AKA Michael the Archangel has long flowing golden blond locks of hair that [[BishieSparkle sparkle.]] All the time. Even at night.
%%* ''Manga/AngelCrush'' : Michael Finch AKA Michael the Archangel has long flowing golden blond locks of hair that [[BishieSparkle sparkle.]] All the time. Even at night.
* ''Anime/GuiltyCrown'': Gai Tsutsugami is tall, has a well built physique, has long blonde hair that goes passed his shoulders and has attracted a number of female characters.
* Narciso Anasui from ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure: Stone Ocean''. Upon meeting him FF even [[DudeLooksLikeALady questions his gender.]]
* Kouji Minamoto of ''Anime/DigimonFrontier'' technically falls under this trope since his hair is long enough to be worn in a near-waist-length ponytail. Amusingly his [[spoiler: long-lost twin]] brother Kouichi is a ''Short''-Haired Pretty Boy due to having similar features but an overall more feminine appearance.
* Yukki of ''Manga/DestroyAndRevolution'' has long hair to spite his father.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Comics]]
* He's more manly than your standard 'pretty boy' as a giant muscular viking, but TheMightyThor deserves a mention for his long blonde hair and numerous female admirers. He ain't called Goldilocks for nothin', true believers!
%%* Ditto for [[TheIncredibleHulk Doc Samson.]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Film]]
* ''Film/TheAvengers'' and ''Film/ThorTheDarkWorld'': Along with wavy black hair down to his shoulders, Loki has big blue eyes, a slender build, and moves very gracefully. His attractiveness to humans is implied by how easily he disarms people even before he starts using his silver tongue or mind-controlly staff.
* ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'': Legolas is the main example, though according to Tolkien, ALL Elves fit this trope.
** It is impossible for anyone to have hair as gorgeously maintained as Legolas' without it being all they think about or without access to cleaning agents and facilities. The best analysis of what it would take to keep that hair up on the quest for the one ring can be found in jpurnal for Legolas in TheVerySecretDiaries.
%%** And in new pictures, so's AidanTurner as a DWARF. [[http://www.google.co.uk/imgres?imgurl=http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-CZrNXhvdsCQ/Th9FfiuKZLI/AAAAAAAAJrk/lBtb3pmEMFQ/s400/kili-aidan.jpg&imgrefurl=http://allthingsrarmitage.blogspot.com/2011/07/in-anticipation-of-thorin-friday-will.html&usg=__R68wafwmhZniXxIw8V2WcLxIz5I=&h=224&w=196&sz=50&hl=en&start=0&zoom=1&tbnid=w3RgYpheWh5gVM:&tbnh=104&tbnw=90&ei=8v0mTuntGZCqrAe_rPi-CQ&prev=/search%3Fq%3Dkili%2Baiden%2Bturner%26um%3D1%26hl%3Den%26rlz%3D1R2TSEE_enGB374%26biw%3D1280%26bih%3D547%26tbm%3Disch&um=1&itbs=1&iact=rc&page=1&ndsp=25&ved=1t:429,r:12,s:0&tx=71&ty=42&biw=1280&bih=547 Seriously]].
%%** Actually, the hobbits seem to be the only people in Middle-Earth who ''don't'' go in for this trope. (The orcs and similar tend not to have much hair). The human men have ''shorter'' styles, but it's still fairly long.
%%* ''TheManInTheIronMask'': [[LeonardoDicaprio Philippe/Louis]].
%%* ''[[DonJuanDeMarco Don Juan DeMarco]]'': The eponymous character, played by JohnnyDepp.
%%* Yoshi in ''Film/{{Bunraku}}''. Not surprising, since he's played by {{Gackt}}.
%%* In ''MadMax 2: The Road Warrior'', the character Golden Boy might count, being the (boy?)friend of Wez and having, by comparison, a rather handsome face and long, flowing, blonde hair.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Literature]]
%%* [[Literature/{{Frankenstein}}]] The creature was [[GoneHorriblyWrong supposed]] to be this, [[UncannyValley but]]...
%%** However, he still has pretty black locks.
%%* ''Literature/LostSouls'': Has Zillah and Christian
%%* All of Laurell K. Hamilton has male characters from the ''Literature/AnitaBlake'' and the ''Literature/MerryGentry'' series have ridiculously long hair and are ridiculously good-looking.
%%* Roiben from the ''Tithe'' novels by HollyBlack. Another elf...
* Literature/PrinceRoger [=McClintock=]'s long hair and prettyboy looks, combined with behaving like a useless fop in rebellion to his family, makes his bodyguards dismiss him as a useless [[TheLoad load]] when they become stranded on [[DeathWorld Marduk]] as a result of a coup attempt, though as the series continues they realize their dismissal of him due to the appearance was a mistake.
%%* [[TheElricSaga Elric of Melnibone]].
%%* Possibly teenage Mowgli in ''The Second Jungle Book''.
* ''Literature/{{Fablehaven}}'' has Bracken, who is tall, willowy, youthful, and has long, soft silver-white hair.
%%* Vanyel Ashkevron from Mercedes Lackey's ''[[HeraldsOfValdemar Velgarth]]'' universe. Also Firesong.
%%* Pick a male Creator/JRRTolkien's elf. Any male Tolkien's elf. Except Cirdan and Mahtan (who are long-haired, but don't look like pretty boys).
%%* Numair from the ''TortallUniverse''.
%%* Irrylath of Meredith Ann Pierce’s ''[[Literature/TheDarkangelTrilogy Darkangel Trilogy]]'', as both an (adult) human and as [[spoiler:a darkangel]].
* Plenty of men in ''Literature/ABrothersPrice''. Women keep their hair short and practical; men grow theirs out very long and usually keep it braided. Since [[GenderRarityValue men are so rare]] most women see very few, any man with all of his teeth and both eyes is going to be considered attractive... even so, Jerin is thought of as amazingly handsome.
%%* The titular ''Literature/{{Id}}''.
%%* The protagonists Seregil and Alec in Lynn Flewelling's ''Literature/{{Nightrunner}}'' novels. Actually pretty standard for the elf-like [[OurElvesAreBetter Aurėnfaie]] race, although different clans favor different ways of styling it and most wear head wraps in distinctive patterns. Humans are more variable, as trends in hairstyles vary based on culture and what is in fashion. Long hair is often seen as a sign of cultural affinity with the Aurėnfaie.
* Roshaun ke Nelaid of ''Literature/YoungWizards''. His descriptions in both books in which he appears stress two things: that he's very, very pretty, and sports a blond ponytail long enough for him to sit on.
* Valli in ''Literature/OutlanderLeander'' has long hair and is described as pretty by Leander, and even wears flowers and dresses. Not to be confused with a crossdresser, though, because it's not considered crossdressing to them.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Ser Loras Tyrell has wavy, light brown, shoulder-length hair in Season 1. George R.R. Martin even described the character as "...the teen idol of Westeros" in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QmxRIgBtThk this HBO featurette]]. Two lowborn Lannister soldiers consider the Knight of Flowers to be prettier than the Queen. Sansa Stark has a crush on Loras because of his good looks.
%%* The Groosalugg from ''Series/{{Angel}}'' falls under this trope, until he and Cordelia go on vacation, and he cuts it short... [[http://images.wikia.com/buffy/images/f/f6/AngelGroo.jpg And familiarily...]]
%%* Duncan [=MacLeod=] from ''Series/{{Highlander}}'', until season 6 when the actor got tired of it.
%%* In ''Series/CriminalMinds'', Reid[[note]] BonusPoints for his in-series nickname being PrettyBoy.[[/note]] had longish hair in the earlier seasons but it was shoulder-length in season five. Later on in the season, Reid got a haircut. [[Funny/CriminalMinds Crowning Moment of Funny]] when the team sees Reid's new hair.
%%-->'''[[TheStoic Hotch]]''': What? Did you join a boy band?
* Tim Riggins from ''Series/FridayNightLights'' has shoulder-length locks and is referred to as attractive by just about everyone on the show, including his head coach. At the very beginning of the series, he had already slept with half the rally girls and was in a relationship with one of the hottest girls in school. Then, he basically forced her to break up with him, [[spoiler: had sex with the head cheerleader]] and successfully seduced a woman 16 years older than himself. Oh, and that was before he [[spoiler: won state]] and started having threesomes on a weekly basis.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Music]]
%%* Anthony Keidis from the Music/RedHotChiliPeppers, although he's recently cut it short.
%%* Every HairMetal band had to have at least one to be marketable. [[DudeLooksLikeaLady Some bands were entirely composed of them]]. Some examples are:
%%** Sebastian Bach of SkidRow
%%** Axl Rose and Steven Adler of Music/GunsNRoses
%%** Bret Micheals of Poison
%%** John Bon Jovi of Music/BonJovi until the ImportantHaircut
%%** Nikki Sixx and Vince Neil of MotleyCrue
%%* {{Vocaloid}}2: [[http://momo222.unblog.fr/files/2009/04/gakupo124.jpg Kamui Gakupo]], whose voice is sampled from {{Gackt}}. Also, Kaito is sometimes depicted in fanart with a long mullet tied into a ponytail, especially when he's drawn in the same samurai-style as Gakupo.
%%** Len can also count, seeing as its long enough to put in a short ponytail, and there's plenty of fanart depicting him as a PrettyBoy.
%%* In the early [[TheSeventies '70s]], Queen were all these. Brian has kept his SeventiesHair forever.
%%* In TheEighties, there was [[http://hairbangersradio.ning.com/group/nelson Nelson]].
%%* Another 80s example is Michael Hutchence of INXS. As his hair grew longer over the course of the decade, his [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PrZZfaDp02o prettiness]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6jujG5X9iZs grew]] as well.
%%* Music/TheBeatles
%%** Particularly John when he had shoulder length hair and cleanshaven. As seen in ''LetItBe''.
%%* Michael Kiske during his time in Music/{{Helloween}}, as seen [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4aPaKsUfUEs here]].

%%* Eddie Vedder of Music/PearlJam in the early years.
%%* Kurt Cobain of Music/{{Nirvana}}, too.
%%* David Gilmour of Music/PinkFloyd in the earlier stages of their career.
%%* Music/{{Hanson}} in TheNineties.
%%* Every post-Aramary SoundHorizon album includes at least one LongHairedPrettyBoy. It makes one wonder if it's all just an elaborate excuse for Revo to wear [[http://img685.imageshack.us/img685/8173/elef.png a]] [[http://img809.imageshack.us/img809/565/marchenr.png bunch]] [[http://img804.imageshack.us/img804/512/shaytanandlayla.png of]] [[http://img198.imageshack.us/img198/161/thanatosu.png silly]] [[http://img59.imageshack.us/img59/5505/hiverlaurant.png wigs]] [[http://img40.imageshack.us/img40/4688/elefried.jpg on]] [[http://img233.imageshack.us/img233/9936/marchetan.jpg stage.]]

[[folder:Mythology]]
* Cu Chulainn of CelticMythology is described in the ''Literature/TainBoCuailnge'' as as a beautiful young man with long, [[MulticoloredHair multi-hued]] hair that fell past his shoulders.
* [[HinduMythology Krishna]] is known for his long hair and his beauty, as is the god Vishnu whom he incarnates from. One of Krishna's names literally translates into "of beautiful hair".

[[folder:Theater]]
* When [[ClassicalMythology Dionysus]] disguises himself as a human in ''Theatre/{{Bacchae}}'', King Pentheus goes on a [[HomoeroticSubtext poetic rant]] about how beautiful he is, paying particular attention to his long, silky hair, which he then threatens to [[TraumaticHaircut cut off]].

%%* ''Theatre/TheLionInWinter'': King Philippe

[[folder:Video Games]]
%%* ''VideoGame/GoldenSun'': Felix, Piers, and [[BigBad Alex]]. [[spoiler:Alex returns in ''[[VideoGame/GoldenSunDarkDawn Dark Dawn]]'' under a [[PaperThinDisguise Paper Thin Alias]], flowing tresses intact.]]
%%* The ''FinalFantasy'' series' general [[{{Bishonen}} design philosophy]] for male characters makes this trope present in abundance:
%%** Even since the beginning--[[VideoGame/FinalFantasyI Red Mage's]] and White Wizard's original sprites were [[LongHairedPrettyBoy long haired pretty boys]] (okay, we can't tell if they're pretty, precisely - or guys, for that matter - but it's ''FinalFantasy'' in the Creator/YoshitakaAmano era. Odds are good that they are).
%%*** Warrior of Light becomes one in ''{{Dissidia}}'', which was based on Amano's art for the Warrior class.
%%** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyII'' has TheEmperor and his RapunzelHair. Firion counts as well, [[DependingOnTheArtist when he's given longer hair]].
%%** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV'' has the [[{{Bishonen}} ever]]-[[WhiteHairBlackHeart so]]-[[HairDecorations pretty]] [[TheHero Cecil]] (who is [[DependingOnTheArtist sometimes drawn with short hair, but rarely]]). In the sequel, his hair's yet longer...but still not as long as [[TheLancer Kain]], with his long, straight, lovely blond hair.
%%** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'' has [[TheGambler Setzer]], and ChivalrousPervert Edgar.
%%** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'': [[OminousLatinChanting Veni, veni, venias! Ne me mori facias!]] Sephiroth! Also Vincent Valentine.
%%*** Kadaj and Yazoo from ''AdventChildren'' take after Sephiroth.
%%** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII'' has Irvine. Save a horse, ride a cowboy, ''indeed''. Laguna too, when he was younger.
%%** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX'' has Kuja, bishiest of all.
%%** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'' has Seymour Guado (although how pretty he is may be subject to debate).
%%** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII'' has Larsa and Vayne Solidor, and Al-Cid Margrace.
%%** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'' ''nearly'' avoids the trope, but Cid and Rygdea keep the tradition alive.
%%* ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger'': The boss Flea. The chest padding in the game art doesn't help.
%%* ''SuperPunchOut'': Kabuki dancing boxer Heike Kagero (long ''purple'' hair, even).
%%* ''KingdomHearts'': Xehanort, Xemnas, "Ansem", Saix, Marluxia, Riku (until he cut it off in 3D), Vexen... Yeah, ''KingdomHearts'' is the master of Long Haired [[{{Bishonen}} hotties]].
* ''StreetFighter'': Vega has long hair that goes past his waist. His default outfit is him shirtless, revealing his muscular physique and wearing a mask to protect his handsome face.
%%** Ken too, especially in the [[VideoGame/StreetFighterAlpha Alpha]] series.
%%** Alex, also. 'Dat ponytail.
%%* ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'': Zelos Wilder and [[spoiler:Mithos]] Yggdrasill.
%%* ''SamuraiShodown'': [[IncurableCoughOfDeath Ukyo Tachibana]].

%%* ''VideoGame/{{Okami}}'': [[spoiler:Waka]] [[spoiler:How does he keep it under that hat?]]
%%* ''VideoGame/SengokuBasara'': Akechi Mitsuhide and Maeda Keiji.
%%* ''InfiniteSpace'': A few male characters (including the main character), most notably Lord Roth, who has waist-length hair.
* ''[[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedII Assassin's Creed II]]'': Ezio. His hair is usually in a ponytail, but does reach his shoulders. And over the course of the series he proves himself to be quite the [[TheCasanova ladies man]].
%%* ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask]]'': Kafei.
%%* ''WorldOfWarcraft'': Lots, most notably Arthas Menethil and Kael'thas Sunstrider.
%%* ''VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia'': Yuri Lowell, plus Duke.
%%* ''StarOcean'': Ioshua Jerand from the first game, and Dias Flac from ''The Second Story''/''Second Evolution''. Meanwhile, Albel Nox from ''Till the End of Time'' has twin rattails that reach past his waist.
%%* ''[[DotHackGUGames .hack//G.U.]]'' games: Endrance, crossing into DudeLooksLikeALady territory. Also, Kuhn.
%%* ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss'': Luke, before [[ImportantHaircut his haircut]], [[spoiler:[[CloningBlues his original]]]] Asch, and Jade. Also Van and Peony.
%%* ''HarvestMoon'' has been fond of this lately. Julius and Jin come to mind.
%%* ''KingOfFighters'': Duo Lon.
%%** Benimaru Nikaido has the long hair and the good looks, but his ShockAndAwe powers make his hair stand up. He lets his hair down once or twice, though.
%%* ''FatalFury'': Terry and Andy Bogard. Andy is more notorious since he lets his long hair loose while Terry ties it up in a ponytail instead.
* ''MortalKombat'': Raiden doesn't initially come off as this, but take away his hat and cloak, and you're left with a rather [[http://mortalkombat.wikia.com/wiki/File:Raiden_Traje_alter.jpg pretty man with a glorious mane of white hair]].
** Partially lampshaded in ''VideoGame/MortalKombat9'' where, upon learning they are fighting for the safety of Earth, Johnny Cage asks Raiden, "What should we do, besides standing around looking pretty?"
%%** A more immediate example is [[http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20110624145734/mk/images/1/16/Fujincutout.png Fujin]].
%%* The ''VideoGame/FireEmblem'' series has had plenty of these, dating as far back as Navarre from the very first game. Perhaps the most famous examples are [[DudeLooksLikeALady Lucius]] from ''[[FireEmblemElibe Blazing Sword]]'' and Soren from ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Path of Radiance]]''.
* ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear'' has quite a few, with Testament standing out in particular for having long black hair and a very feminine looking attire. A number of the characters have commented on his beauty.
%%** Ky Kiske gains this look in Guilty Gear 2: Overture and onward. He ties it on a ponytail in the newest game though.
%%* ''SoulSeries'': Siegfried Schtauffen. He used to have short hair in ''Soul Blade'', but it's grown out a lot in later games.
%%* ''VideoGame/BrainDead13'': Computer technician and [[RedHeadedHero Red-Headed]] IdiotHero Lance Galahad.

* ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'': [[http://www.egscomics.com/sketchbook/?date=2006-01-29 Noah]] has long hair he keeps in a ponytail. Due to that and his other androgynous traits other characters are unsure of his gender.
%%* ''{{Monsterful}}'': Jacob Bottom Button, the Rag doll boy.
%%* ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'': Maxim, who was originally meant to be nothing more than a joke sketch of a PrettyBoy [[FrankensteinsMonster Jagermonster]].
%%** Tarvek too.
%%* ''{{Paradis}}'' has angels as this, specifically Gabriel.
%%* ''ABrokenWinter'': While both Kuroda and Reisen have very long hair, Reisen lets his fly in true pretty-boy style. Kuroda keeps his in a neat tail.
* ''Webcomic/MenageA3'' features Erik, a blond, sunglasses-wearing rich guy who '80s hair-rock fan Zii considers a perfect boyfriend, for his looks (and for many other reasons).

* ''Webcomic/ToddAllisonAndThePetuniaViolet'': Meredith has long dark hair, has been the cause of much ViewerGenderConfusion since his first appearance, and was called "impossibly beautiful" by [[EvenTheGuysWantHim Rolls]]. Elijah also noted ([[Website/{{tumblr}} admittedly out of continuity]]) how Meredith was more popular with girls when they were younger, partially due to having a more handsome face.

* Fabio, in his prime, milked this for all it was worth. Commercials nowadays usually parody this status, and it used to be [[MemeticMutation rather memetic to joke about Fabio's hair]].
* Male metalheads who like to grow their hair long can sometimes end up as this, especially if they have [[DudeLooksLikeALady feminine-looking faces.]]
