->''"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. This trope is very popular in {{Anime}} and {{Manga}}, especially those [[{{Shoujo}} either aimed at girls/women]], or are hoping to attract [[BishonenJumpSyndrome a significant female]] PeripheryDemographic.

* ''Manga/{{Beelzebub}}'': When Himekawa loses the pompadour and sunglasses, his hair is revealed to be very long and beautiful, and he's so handsome his classmates are left speechless. From then on whenever he appears in this state he's nicknamed "Sexykawa".

* ''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.

When he was younger he was noted for looking like a short haired version of [[StrongFamilyResemblance his sister]]. When she died he grew his hair out and began [[MySiblingWillLiveThroughMe dressing as her]] in private for his mother, who [[TheUnfavorite preferred her]] and has [[SanitySlippage mental health issues]] due to her death. [[spoiler:Ryousuke [[ExpositoryHairstyleChange cuts his hair]] when he enters high school due to no longer needing to crossdress.]]
** Satoshi is introduced as a boy with long hair who usually [[WholesomeCrossdresser wears girls clothes]]. A few appearances later and he cut his hair short and ditched the sailor fuku because he was hitting a growth spurt. In later chapters he grows his hair out long which makes him stand out as the most {{bishonen}} male character. He often wears his hair in a ponytail.
* ''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.
%%* Several characters by Creator/{{CLAMP}}, especially in their shoujo series:

%%** ''Manga/RGVeda'': Yasha.
%%** ''Manga/{{X 1999}}'': Kakyou Kuzuki.
%%** ''Manga/CardcaptorSakura'': Yue and Clow.
* ''Manga/Classi9'' has two of them: There is Beethoven, who's long [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair violet hair]] and delicate features had him [[DudeLooksLikeALady mistaken for a girl]] InUniverse. There's also Liszt, who despite thinking he isn't that good looking, has numerous fangirls for his looks and musical talent. As for the long-haired part, his hair goes below his knees.
%%* ''Anime/CodeGeass'': Xingke and Clovis. There's also V.V., though he's more of a cute boy than a {{Bishounen}}.
* ''LightNovel/{{Corsair}}'': the brothers Jean-Hughes D'Aubigne and Canale Delacroix both have long hair and aristocratic good looks, with Canale in particular being seen as extraordinarily beautiful.
%%* ''Manga/CrimsonSpell'': Havi.
* Akoya of ''Anime/CuteHighEarthDefenseClubLove'' whose long [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair pink hair]] is his defining physical trait.
* Jin Kazama from ''Manga/{{DAYS}}'' has long, blond hair that stands out amongst most the cast (who mostly have black or brown hair). He's the most {{bishonen}} character and is a ChickMagnet. Kazama's hair gets commented on when people on another team say they expect him to get beat up for his looks.
%%* ''Manga/DescendantsOfDarkness'': Dr Watari, Sohryuu and Nagare (Hisoka's father).
* Yukki of ''Manga/DestroyAndRevolution'' has long hair to spite his father.
%%* ''Manga/DGrayMan'': Yu Kanda, Jasdevi and maybe General Cross (he's not really a ''boy'').
%%** And [[http://www.mangareader.net/210-55026-21/dgray-man/chapter-196.html Tyki Mikk]].
* 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.
* Hakuoh from ''Anime/DuelMasters'' has [[RapunzelHair Very long blue hair]], and he's [[{{Bishonen}} very pretty boy]].
* In ''Anime/{{Endride}}'', the very pretty Eljuia has flowing white RapunzelHair which unquestionably contributes to the DudeLooksLikeALady effect that occurs in-universe. He stands out as most men in the series keep their hair shoulder length or higher.
* ''Manga/ExcelSaga'': Il Palazzo has long silver hair and is rather pretty for an older man.
%%* ''Manga/FinderSeries'': Feilong.
* ''Manga/FruitsBasket'':
** Ayame Sohma has very long silver hair and is famous for his beauty, not to mention he's incredibly camp.
** Ritsu Sohma has long brown hair and is pretty enough that he can wear a kimono and pass for a woman. His timid demeanor also helps.
%%* ''Manga/FushigiYuugi'' has Hotohori, Nuriko, Tomo (without the makeup), Tatara, Tenkou, and Renhou's demon form. Its prequel series ''Manga/FushigiYuugiGenbuKaiden'' adds Uruki, Hikitsu, and Hagus to that list.
* ''Manga/GetBackers'': Kazuki has floor length brown hair and is so pretty he's been mistaken as female a number of times.
* ''Manga/{{Gintama}}'':

%%* ''Manga/ImmortalRain'': Rain.
* Guy of ''Manga/InnocentsShounenJuujigun'' has upper back length, immensely floofy black hair. While he's not the [[CastFullOfPrettyBoys prettiest member of the cast,]] he's certainly an attractive young man.
* ''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.
* Narciso Anasui from ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure: Stone Ocean''. Upon meeting him FF even [[DudeLooksLikeALady questions his gender.]]
* ''Anime/{{K}}'':
** Kuroh, with his SamuraiPonytail. In the first episode, when he rescues Shiro, the latter blushes at Kuroh's beauty and tries to flirt with him quite a bit, even when Kuroh is trying to kill him. When Kuroh goes to Shiro's school to find him, passing groups of students notice how hot he is, even though he seems a little strange.
** [[spoiler:Shiro in his original body]] also [[RapunzelHair qualifies]] - even after [[spoiler:he cuts his hair in the end, it's still shoulder-length]], and the students in the school are shown in a post-series side story to be very into both him and Kuroh for their looks.
%%* 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.
%%* ''Manga/KannazukiNoMiko'': Tsubasa.
%%* ''Manga/KatekyoHitmanReborn'': Future!Mukuro, Squalo, Kikyo, Nosaru, Daemon Spade, and Basil.
* Kaoru from ''Manga/KidsOnTheSlope'' is stated to have [[{{bishonen}} effeminate]] facial features once and certainly looks prettier than the other more 'average' looking boys. As an adult he is shown to have grown his hair out and become a [[HospitalHottie doctor]].
%%* ''LightNovel/KyoKaraMaoh'': Gunter and Saralegui.
%%* ''Manga/{{Loveless}}'': Soubi, Nisei, and the male Zeroes.
* ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'': Alto Saotome a.k.a. [[InSeriesNickname Hime-sama]] is a beautiful boy with long blue hair tied in a ponytail. Often leads to him getting mistaken for a girl, much to his displeasure.
* Aburatsubo from ''Anime/MagicUsersClub''. He's tall, has long red hair, and is gorgeous enough to have his fanclub.
* ''Anime/{{Mononoke}}'': Kusuriuri is known for capturing the hearts of all the women he meets just by standing still and letting the DramaticWind blow through his long, wavy ash blond hair.
%%* ''Manga/NaruTaru'': Norio Koga.
* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'': Haku's long hair is the main factor in his [[DudeLooksLikeALady androgyny]]. He had long hair even as a child. According to Naruto, he thought that Haku was even prettier than his crush Sakura.
%%** Neji, Dan, Deidara, Itachi, and Kabuto all have hair that goes past their shoulders, and are all [[{{Bishonen}} quite pretty]].
%%** Inoichi Yamanaka is an older example.
%%** Sasuke in Curse Seal Level 2 form.
%%** Shikamaru when we get to see his hair down while bathing.
%%* ''Anime/NightRaid1931'': Natsume.
* Ryuunosuke of ''LightNovel/ThePetGirlOfSakurasou'', 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.
%%* ''Franchise/PrettyCure'':
%%** Mucardia of ''Anime/YesPrettyCure5 [=GoGo=]''
%%** Souler of ''Anime/FreshPrettyCure''
%%** Cobraja of ''Anime/HeartCatchPrecure''
%%** Baritone of ''Anime/SuitePrettyCure''
%%** Wolfrun of ''Anime/SmilePrettyCure''.
* ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'': Mousse' hair is longer than Shampoo's and he is quite pretty without his glasses.
%%* ''Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena'': Touga, Akio, and Saionji.
* ''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.
* ''Manga/SailorMoon'': Fisheye, Zoisite, Nephrite and Kunzite all have long hair. The first two were portrayed as female in the dub. Also, Ali (his alien form) in the anime only Doom Tree arc. And Fiore (his alien form) in the R movie. And Artemis (his human form) in the manga.
* ''AudioPlay/SaintBeast'': Quite a few: Shin, Luca, and Lucifer all have RapunzelHair, and being angels, angelic beauty to accompany it. Rey is by far the worst offender with his long, flowing purple hair, and features bordering on DudeLooksLikeALady.
%%* ''Manga/SaintSeiya'': Shiryu, Shun and Hyoga (and countless secondary characters, most notably Shaka and Mu).
* ''Manga/SakuraGari'': Souma has long hair that he wairs in a ponytail (before his ImportantHaircut) and Youya [[spoiler:aka Sakurako.]]
* ''Manga/TheSecretAgreement'': Iori has long locks and is commented on for his [[SlidingScaleOfBeauty world-class beauty]], even more so than his short-haired sister.
* Ferid and Crowley of ''Manga/SeraphOfTheEnd'' are both [[{{Bishonen}} effeminate looking]] vampires with Ferid keeping his long silver hair in a ponytail and Crowley keeping his long red hair in a braid.
** Asuramaru is a demon with a feminine looking face and long dark hair. The dress doesn't help either.
* ''LightNovel/{{Shimoneta}}'': Oboro takes the [[DudeLooksLikeALady "pretty" boy]] aspect to extremes, due to his soft facial features and the length of his hair. It reachs his mid-back, making him look near identical to ''[[Characters/AzumangaDaioh Azumanga Daioh's]]'' Sakaki. Had it not been for Tanukichi's [[CrotchGrabSexCheck accidental discovery]] in chapter 10, no one would know he's really a guy!
* ''Manga/ShugoChara'': Nagihiko Fujisaki has long, flowing indigo hair. Justified [[UnsettlingGenderReveal because he's a crossdresser]].
%%* ''Manga/SorcererHunters'': Marron Glace.
* ''Anime/StarDriver'': Shingo generally has some of the longest hair among the male cast, but after about sixteen years of coma it has grown to RapunzelHair dimensions and he has soft facial features to match.
* ''Manga/{{Tsukigasa}}'': Azuma has very long, beautiful hair and a delicate appearance such that he resembles his mother strongly.
%%* ''Anime/TheVisionOfEscaflowne'': Allen Schezar.
* Kiri from ''Manga/WildRose'' and Olgrius and Shui from ''Manga/WildWind'', all have RapunzelHair that is [[AuthorAppeal drawn in great detail]], and beautiful appearances courtesy of their supernatural being status.
* [[{{Kitsune}} Kyubi]] from ''Anime/YokaiWatch'' is portrayed as a long haired, somewhat androgynous looking boy in human form. He's a ChickMagnet who (literally) steals hearts. Despite this Katie is oblivious to his flirting.
* Jae-ha of ''Manga/YonaOfTheDawn'' never misses an opportunity to bestow his beauty on anyone [[AmbiguouslyBi male or female]]. Since he is also TheCharmer and a ChickMagnet, most of his targets really don't mind (except Hak). Jae-ha is also the only one of the CastFullOfPrettyBoys who seems to know just how pretty he is and will try to use it to get what he wants (with varying success, his companions are completely immune). His waist-length [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair green hair]] is tied beautifully back with a long yellow ribbon.
** While Kija's hair is shorter, it's still long enough to be tied back. And he's just as pretty as Jae-ha, just a lot more innocent...and slightly traumatized by infatuated women throwing themselves at him.
* ''Manhua/YouthGoneWild'' has several, though Lu Kai is most notable, completing the look with GuyLiner and lipstick.
* The ''Anime/YuGiOh'' series is guilty of this trope. You've got Bakura, Pegasus, Otogi, Espa Roba, [[DarkSkinnedBlonde Marik]], Dartz and Sigfried. Like [[{{Bishounen}} much of the male characters]] in the ''Yu-Gi-Oh!'' series, they are attractive too.
** Continuing with ''Anime/YuGiOhGX'': [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair Ryo]], [[HotForTeacher Daitokuji-sensei]], Fubuki. In-Universe, the girls go crazy for them, [[TheCasanova especially the latter]].
*** Christopher "Chris" Arclight—V—from ''Anime/YuGiOhZEXAL'' is definitely this. Women would be jealous with how long his hair is. He also happens to be quite handsome.
* ''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 ([[PowerDyesYourHair 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/{{Zetsuai 1989}}'': Koji.
%%* [[BoysLoveGenre BL]] manga ''Manga/{{Challengers}}'' and ''Manga/TheTyrantFallsInLove'' have this with HotScientist Souichi, whenever SlipknotPonytail is in effect.

%%* ''LightNovel/{{Sukisho}}'': Sunao, Matsuri, Professor Aizawa, and Nanami.
%%* ''PrincessPrincess'': Yuujirou Shihoudani.
%%* ''A Kiss To The Prince'': Yu-Jen.

%%* ''VideoGame/{{Utawarerumono}}'': Hauenkua.
%%* ''{{Is}}'': Jun Koshinae.
%%* ''Manga/DNAngel'': Krad; his blonde ponytail is easily longer than he is-this is noticeable when he flies and his hair has to catch up with him.
%%* ''Manga/BlackBird'': Sagami.
%%* ''Anime/RahXephon'': Dr. Itsuki Kisaragi.
%%* ''Manga/{{Psyren}}'': Oboro Mochizuki and Future!Shao.

%%* ''Manga/NabariNoOu'': Raikou Shimizu.
%%* ''Manga/RosarioPlusVampire'': Fong-Fong Wong.
* ''Manga/DeathNote'':
** Mikami is a SharpDressedMan with shoulder-lenght hair and some would argue he's even more {{Bishonen}} than Light and (although he wasn't intended to be one) L. At least until the Yellow Box Scene in the GrandFinale.
%%* ''Anime/{{Heroman}}'': Joey.
%%* ''VideoGame/InazumaEleven'': Terumi "Aphrodi" Afuro.

%%* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'': Nando.
%%* ''Manga/LevelE'': Prince Baka.

%%* ''GakuenHeaven'': Kaoru (whose hair is pink) and Naruse.
%%* ''CharaCafeRelishNiOide'': Kaida Reiji.
%%* ''{{Patalliro}}'': Jack Bancoran and Maraich, plus all lover boys/Swedish assassins.
%%* ''Anime/BtX'': Fou Lafine.
%%* ''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" due to malnutrition (though in ''Anime/FullmetalAlchemistTheConquerorOfShamballa'' he keeps his hair long to emulate his brother).
%%* ''HereIsGreenwood'': Shun Kisaragi.
%%* ''Anime/MawaruPenguindrum'': Sanetoshi Watase.
%%* ''ReimeiNoArcana'': Caesar. He cuts his hair in Chapter 8 after Nakaba is forced to get her red hair dyed. Adel, Nakaba's relative and the heir to the Senan throne.
%%* ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}'': Luke Valentine.
%%* ''LightNovel/{{No6}}'': Nezumi's hair is long enough to tie back, and he's certainly bishie enough. His long hair is also show to help him act as female characters while acting.
%%* ''Manga/BlackCat'': Charden Flamberg.
%%* ''Manga/KarakuridoujiUltimo'': Rune and Jealous/Jealousy.
%%* ''Angels Feather'': Reiya Wakabayashi.

%%* ''Di Gi Charat'': Kimura Takurou.
%%* ''Manga/{{Toriko}}'': Sunny.
%%* ''ACruelGodReigns'' : Ian.
* ''Anime/YuriOnIce'': Victor Nikiforov had long, waist-length hair as a teenager. As an adult his hair is much shorter, though he hasn't lost his pretty looks. It helps that he's a LivingLegend of a figure skater who's been highly skilled since his junior days and has [[EvenTheGuysWantHim male and female fans]].

* John is depicted in ''Art/TheLastSupper'' as androgynous, pretty, and long-haired to emphasize his status as the youngest, and thus least masculine, apostle.

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* In ''Comic/ElfQuest'', Cutter, before he grows a beard. Gorgeous, curly blond mane, cute, rather feminine face... to be fair, though, ''most'' male elves qualify, but Cutter does have the most impressive hair.
* He's more manly than your standard "pretty boy" as a giant muscular viking, but ComicBook/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.]]
* In ''ComicBook/{{Runaways}}'', Victor Mancha was designed to look like the all-American hero for the 21st century, with shoulder-length brown hair and perfect brown skin. A considerable amount of the intra-team conflict in the second series stems from the fact that multiple girls are attracted to him.

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'': Legolas is the main example, although according to Tolkien, '''all''' Elves fit this trope. It is impossible for anyone to have hair as gorgeously maintained as Legolas's 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 journal for Legolas in ''Fanfic/TheVerySecretDiaries''.
* Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse: Along with wavy black hair down to his shoulders, Loki's androgynous beauty in ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'', ''Film/ThorTheDarkWorld'' and ''Film/ThorRagnarok'' includes large, expressive blue irises, pale skin, a svelte figure, and a very graceful gait. His prettiness is made even more evident in ''Ragnarok'' because he resembles a masculine version of Hela, who's an attractive woman with similar physical features. Even [[https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DN67AhHVQAEfv_m.jpg one of the actors]] [[https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DUj4hHjXcAI9wv7.jpg who portrays Loki]] at Disneyland (whose appearance is plainly modeled on Creator/TomHiddleston's youthfulness and sculpted eyebrows in ''Film/{{Thor}}'', while the hairstyle is from ''Ragnarok'') also falls under this trope.
* ''Film/XMenApocalypse'': The lovely [[Characters/XMenFilmSeriesProfessorCharlesXavier Charles]] proudly styles his luscious tresses into a feathered mullet. In essence, he combines his prettiness from ''Film/XMenFirstClass'' with his long, wavy mane from ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'' (but updated to an '80s hairdo). This is the character at his most vain because he revels in being beautiful and flaunts it. ''Apocalypse'' also plays up Xavier's nurturing qualities, so his long hair denotes his androgynous mindset. His lips are a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8FeG41pNZq8 deep magenta]] instead of cherry-red like in ''First Class'', and their [[PinkMeansFeminine rosy shade]] matches with his lilac shirt.

%%* ''Film/TheManInTheIronMask'': [[Creator/LeonardoDiCaprio Philippe/Louis]].
%%* ''Film/DonJuanDeMarco'': The eponymous character, played by Creator/JohnnyDepp.
%%* Yoshi in ''Film/{{Bunraku}}''. Not surprising, since he's played by {{Gackt}}.
%%* In ''Film/MadMax2TheRoadWarrior'', 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.
%%* Brad Pitt's character in ''Film/LegendsOfTheFall''; he's exceptionally pretty and has long flowing hair.
%%** See also ''Film/InterviewWithTheVampire''.

* ''Literature/NightfallSeries'': Tristan is described as a PrettyBoy by both his friends and his enemies. And he has long, platinum-blond hair.
* In ''Literature/DragonBones'', most men wear their hair long (more than shoulder-length) and open (except for old-fashioned Oranstone nobles, who wear it shaved in a specific manner). Ward notes that his brother Tosten is a pretty boy, who therefore has to be careful around sailors. Also, Oreg, who is said to resemble Tosten very much.
%%* [[Literature/{{Frankenstein}}]] The creature was [[GoneHorriblyWrong supposed]] to be this, [[UncannyValley but…]] However, he still has pretty black locks.
%%* ''Literature/LostSouls'': Zillah and Christian
* ''Literature/AnitaBlake'': Micah, Nathaniel and Jean-Claude, among others, have long hair, low muscle bulk and delicate facial features.
* ''Literature/MerryGentry'' They all have ridiculously long hair and are ridiculously good-looking.
* Roiben, an elf with "long pewter hair" from ''Literature/{{Tithe}}'' by Creator/HollyBlack. The protagonist Kaye first encounters him in the rain and severely injured, i.e., sopping wet and covered in mud and his own blood, and even in that state Kaye describes him as "beautiful in a way that made her breath catch" (this is one of the reasons she knows he's a faerie).
* 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.
%%* [[Literature/TheElricSaga Elric of Melnibone]].
* ''Literature/{{Fablehaven}}'' has Bracken, who is tall, willowy, youthful, and has long, soft silver-white hair.
%%* Vanyel Ashkevron from Mercedes Lackey's ''[[Literature/HeraldsOfValdemar Velgarth]]'' universe. Also Firesong.
* ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'': Elves are a '''race''' of fair-skinned boys. And long haired because... well, they don't seem to have a lot in the way of scissors. Pick a male elf. Any male Tolkien's elf. Except Cirdan and Mahtan (who are long-haired, but don't look like pretty boys). Legolas in particular is described as being "fair of face beyond the measure of Men."
%%* Numair from the ''Literature/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. His long hair dangles between his feet when he braids it (granted he is kneeling at the time but that means his hair is at least thigh length and possibly knee length.) and he dresses well. Almost all women who are not related to him make at least one comment on how pretty he is. Paying lots of attention to his appearance is part of his culture, but the beautiful face is genetic.
%%* The titular ''Literature/{{Id}}''.
%%* The protagonists Seregil and Alec in Lynn Flewelling's ''Literature/{{Nightrunner}}'' novels. Actually pretty standard for the elf-like [[OurElvesAreBetter Aurënfaie]] 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 Aurënfaie.
* 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.
* Kuroki in ''Literature/TanteiTeamKZJikenNote'' has shoulder-length hair--the longest allowed in Japanese ChildrensLiterature since that's the longest allowed for schoolboys there. He's the local ChickMagnet, combined with TallDarkAndHandsome and TheCharmer traits.
* In ''Literature/TheGirlFromTheMiraclesDistrict'', the BigBad is described as looking like a male model--the woman Nikita questions is obviously smitten with him--with long red hair.
* Clip in the ''Literature/MalazanBookOfTheFallen''. Literally the first thing one learns about Clip is that he's tall, thin and has long flowing midnight-black hair. According to himself, he has no problems finding a date when out carousing in Bluerose.
* ''Literature/ChroniclesOfTheKencyrath'': Randiroc, who Jame first sees via OutdoorBathPeeping. He has waist-length MysticalWhiteHair (which is also BarbarianLongHair, since he lives in the hills). He's so beautiful that when Jame first sees him, she thinks she might be dreaming. He… just let Jame tell it:
-->''Jame thought at first that it was Kindrie, but only because of the long white hair--too long, surely, unbound, waist-length, clinging to the stranger's shoulders and back. Moonlight turned his whole body into gleaming alabaster except where blue shadows traced wiry muscles and the threads of old scars. He scooped up water and dashed it in his face. It ran down, gleaming, over the hard lines of his chest, stomach, and loins.''
* In ''Literature/KushielsLegacy'', the [[HighClassCallGirl High-Class Call Boy]] Alcuin has silky, waist-length white hair and is described as possessing an outright otherworldly beauty, even compared to the uncommonly attractive people of Terre d'Ange. For his part, he has mixed feelings about the attention his appearance gets him, although that largely stems from people presuming that they can buy access to it.

[[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 an HBO featurette. Two lowborn Lannister soldiers consider the Knight of Flowers to be prettier than the Queen. Sansa Stark, Jeyne Poole, and Renly Baratheon--among others--like him 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]] 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.
* ''Series/MySoCalledLife'': Jordan Catalano who is played by the one and only Jared Leto.
* ''{{Series/Versailles}}'': The most notable examples are King Louis XIV and his brother Philippe, but really it's a whole [[CastFullOfPrettyBoys Court Full of Long-Haired Pretty Boys]]. (And please note that despite the era, we're talking hair-style hair, not wig-style hair. In real life, King Louis XIV had great hair when he was young. He started wearing wigs after losing his hair during a bout of typhoid fever when he was 20--thus starting the wig trend.)
* [[TheMedic Lin Chen]] in ''Series/NirvanaInFire'' has long flowing hair and a prettily handsome face. His flowing robe-like garments complete the androgynous look. The fact that he wears his hair down is also very unusual since Chinese men in this time period were supposed to always wear their hair up in public after reaching maturity.
* In ''Series/{{Trust}}'', J. Paul Getty III is a gorgeous teenager with long red curls. His mother compares him to an angel.

* There's a couple of these guys in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SArW2QjMIEo the video]] for "Hangin' In" by Music/TanyaTucker.
* Russell Mael of Music/{{Sparks}} had a particularly bushy version of this trope in the early 70's, made particularly evident in the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eUJ_ifjKopM video]] for ''This Town Ain't Big Enough For Both Of Us''.
* Gackpo/Gakupo of Music/{{Vocaloid}} fame, who has such long hair and feminine features that newcomers to the franchise sometimes mistake him for a woman. He's modeled after Music/{{Gackt}} during his own years of being this trope, so it's understandable.

[[folder:Myths & Religion]]
* Cu Chulainn of Myth/CelticMythology is described in the ''Literature/TainBoCuailnge'' as as a beautiful young man with long, [[MulticoloredHair multi-hued]] hair that fell past his shoulders.
* [[Myth/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".

* When [[Myth/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]].
* Herbert von Krolock in ''Theatre/TanzDerVampire''. The actor's makeup almost always makes him a pretty boy and in several productions he has long, loose, flowing blonde hair.
** It's a fair guess to assume that Count von Krolock (Herbert's father) also used to be one of these when he was younger. Even if his face is now heavily lined, he's still really handsome and he has long black hair.
%%* ''Theatre/TheLionInWinter'': King Philippe
* Creator/DavidTennant wore [[https://cdn2.rsc.org.uk/sitefinity/images/productions/productions-2010-2014/richard-ii/richard-ii-2013/production-photos/richard-ii-2013-6-541x361.tmb-gal-670.jpg hair extensions]] to achieve this effect when he played the title role in ''Theatre/RichardII''.

[[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 ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' series' general [[{{Bishonen}} design philosophy]] for male characters makes this trope present in abundance:
%%** Even since the beginning--[[VideoGame/FinalFantasyI Red Mage's]] original sprite was a long haired pretty boy.(okay, we can't tell if he's pretty, precisely--or a guys, for that matter.
%%*** Warrior of Light becomes one in ''VideoGame/{{Dissidia|Final Fantasy}}'', 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.
* [[Franchise/JakAndDaxter Jak]] has long hair in the [[VideoGame/JakIIRenegade second game]], and is mentioned by Keira as being handsome [[spoiler:after he admits to missing his child self, and she admits he'll grow up to look handsome]]. He cuts it short in the [[VideoGame/Jak3Wastelander third game]] to survive in the desert.
%%** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'' has [[TheGambler Setzer]], and ChivalrousPervert Edgar.
%%** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'': [[OminousLatinChanting Veni, veni, venias! Ne me mori facias!]] Sephiroth! Also Vincent Valentine.
%%*** Sephiroth's long silver hair reaches his waist, and he has very delicate features.
%%*** Kadaj and Yazoo from ''Anime/FinalFantasyVIIAdventChildren'' 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.
%%* ''Super VideoGame/PunchOut'': Kabuki dancing boxer Heike Kagero (long ''purple'' hair, even).
* ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger'': The boss Flea. The chest padding in the game art doesn't help.
* ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'': Xehanort, Xemnas, "Ansem", Saix, Marluxia, Riku (until he cut it off in 3D)... Yeah, ''KingdomHearts'' is the master of Long Haired [[{{Bishonen}} hotties]].
* ''Franchise/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, Yuan Ka-Fai, and [[spoiler:Mithos]] Yggdrasill.
* ''VideoGame/SamuraiShodown'': [[IncurableCoughOfDeath Ukyo Tachibana]].
* ''VideoGame/DynastyWarriors'': Several examples, most notably Zhang He and Zhou Yu.
** There's also Zhao Yun, Zhuge Liang, Ling Tong and Jiang Wei.
* ''VideoGame/SamuraiWarriors'': we have Ishida Mitsunari, Akechi Mitsuhide and Sasaki Kojiro.
* ''VideoGame/WarriorsOrochi'': Taigong Wang, if he wore it loose that is.
* ''VideoGame/{{Okami}}'': [[spoiler:Waka]] [[spoiler:How does he keep it under that hat?]]
* Many male characters in the mobile RPG ''[[VideoGame/{{Onmyoji}} Onmyōji]]'', being set in the Heian period and all, but most notably the protagonist [[{{Bishonen}} Abe no]] [[HistoricalBeautyUpgrade Seimei]] whose [[MysticalWhiteHair white]] hair reaches his knees.
** Also the [[TheDandy Hair]] [[BadassGay Eater]] who takes it further with his hair's ''[[RapunzelHair trailing on the ground]]''.
** Even little boys aren't exempt from this rule, examples being Shirodōji and Kurodōji, leading many fans to [[ViewerGenderConfusion mistake them for girls]]. The fact that they sport the HimeCut doesn't help.
* ''VideoGame/SengokuBasara'': Akechi Mitsuhide and Maeda Keiji.
* ''VideoGame/FireEmblem'':
** Lucius from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTheBlazingBlade'' has long blond hair and is pretty enough that Serra mistakes him for a girl at first.
** Libra from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' has long hair that contributes to his feminine appearance and people mistake him for a woman on a regular basis.
** Takumi from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' has long, flowing hair down to his waist, which he keeps in a high ponytail (so it is likely even longer). In an interview, the character designer explicitly noted that he was designed to appeal to the female audience.
** Subaki from the same game also has long flowing hair worn in a ponytail. It doesn't hurt that he's an {{Expy}} of Cordelia, one of the most beautiful women in the previous game.
** Forrest, also from ''Fates'', is an extreme example. He has long hair in an elaborate curly style, and he's [[DudeLooksLikeALady so pretty]] that several characters (including Elise, some bandits, Dwyer in one of the DLC levels, and apparently ''a good percent of the army'' in his Shigure supports) all comment on it.
** Both Luthier and Leon in ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemGaiden Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia]]'' are long-haired bishonen. Leon in particular seems to be playing it up, since he accentuates his looks with makeup and claims to have a strict routine to keep himself looking pretty.
* ''VideoGame/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]].
* ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda''
** ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask]]'': Kafei.
** Link himself is also this in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild''.
** The Hero of Time from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'' is implied/hinted to be this as well, according to the manga and fandom interpretation from the former.

* ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'': Lots, most notably Arthas Menethil and Kael'thas Sunstrider.
* ''VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia'': Yuri "Pheromone Boy" Lowell. A man even offers him a drink until he realizes he's male.
* ''VideoGame/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.
* ''[[VideoGame/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.
* ''VideoGame/HarvestMoon'' has been fond of this on marriageable bachelors starting with ''VideoGame/HarvestMoonTreeOfTranquility''. Julius (who is so pretty in the Japanese version he wonders if his love interest thinks he's a {{crossdresser}}) and Jin (the resident HospitalHottie doctor of ''Tree Of Tranquility'' and [[VideoGame/HarvestMoonAnimalParade Animal Parade]]'' come to mind.
* ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters'': 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.
* ''VideoGame/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.
* ''Franchise/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?"
* ''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.
%%* ''VideoGame/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 IdiotHero Lance Galahad.
* In ''VideoGame/XenobladeChronicles'', we have Dunban, a HandicappedBadass with long hair, and who some female fans consider to be the most attractive guy in the game.
* Idol game ''VideoGame/EnsembleStars'' gives us [[SamuraiPonytail Souma]] and Wataru.
* ''VideoGame/StardewValley'' has Elliot, a handsome, long-haired aspiring writer who lives in a shack on the beach in Pelican Town. He's one of the villagers you can marry in the RomanceSidequest.

[[folder:Visual Novels]]
* Arsenik in ''VisualNovel/War13thDay''. His hair falls past his waist, and he's quite the unwitting heartbreaker. [[spoiler:In his route, not only Ambrosia likes him but Wildfire as well. In fact, Wildfire has the world's longest-standing crush on him. She even tries to make him jealous by going out with someone else. Chase also mentions that Arsenik has admirers.]] And if it couldn't be made any clearer, Brooks says this about him:
-->'''Brooks:''' I’ve seen that tight blonde you’ve been eyeing. Now, he is ''fine''.
* ''Franchise/AceAttorney'':
** Klavier and Kristoph Gavin from ''VisualNovel/{{Apollo Justice|AceAttorney}}''.
** Nahyuta Sahdmadhi in ''[[VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneySpiritOfJustice Spirit of Justice]]'' is probably the prettiest male character in ''Ace Attorney'', and definitely has the longest hair. Braided, it reaches at least to his thighs.
* [[{{Narcissist}} Zen]] in VisualNovel/MysticMessenger has waist-long white hair bound in a low ponytail and is very attractive, so much he admires himself and takes many selfies. He also has many admirers. (Mostly female). It also helps that [[SexySecretary Jaehee]] comments how handsome he is, and even Yoosung is jealous of his good looks.

[[folder:Web Animation]]
* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'': Ren has pretty pink eyes and a slim, feminine facial structure. His body is slender and, while he's just barely taller than most of the female students, he's shorter than most of the men. For the first three volumes, his hair is tied back into a long ponytail with a pink streak that's the same colour as his eyes. In Volume 4, the pink streak is darker, almost purple, and he wears his hair unbound. It's so long it almost reaches his butt and emphasises his slight, feminine appearance.

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* In the webcomics by Creator/AGnosis, Dionysos is portrayed as this. All the gods are implied to be good-looking, but he's taking it up to eleven, wearing earrings, flowers in his hair, and bracelets.
** Ganymede, too, is portrayed like this, naturally. After all, Zeus gave him the job as cupbearer of the gods because he was so very pretty. He wears his hair open, and doesn't wear a shirt.
%%* ''Webcomic/{{Annyseed}}'' The sinister Mr Coldsteem.
* ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'': [[http://www.egscomics.com/sketchbook/?date=2006-01-29 Noah]] has long hair, [[spoiler:strongly implied to include long furry antennae in addition to scalp hair,]] which he keeps in a ponytail. Due to that and his other androgynous traits other characters are unsure of his gender.
* ''Webcomic/{{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]].
* ''Webcomic/{{Paradis}}'' has angels as this, specifically Gabriel.
* ''Webcomic/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'':
** Erik is a blond, sunglasses-wearing rich guy who '80s hair-rock fan Zii considers a perfect boyfriend, for his looks and many other reasons.
** Wrestling trainer Damien also carries off the style in a way that is perhaps not unknown in pro wrestling. He is also habitually flirtatious, and clearly fully aware of the effect he has on some of his female students, using it to keep them paying their membership fees.
** The spin-off comic, ''Webcomic/StickyDillyBuns'', features Angel, who has the hair, who plays in a glam-rock revival band ''called'' "Pretty Boyz With Electric Toyz", and who the lead character correctly identifies as a romantic rival on sight. However, it subsequently turns out that Angel is actually [[spoiler:[[{{Transgender}} "gender fluid"]] and anatomically female, indeed presenting as a slim, attractive woman on some days]].
* ''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.
%%* Webcomics/IncubusTales features a number of these, most prominently its main protagonist Dhiar.
%%* In [[http://thewretchedoneswebcomic.com/ The Wretched Ones]], every major male character so far, excluding the wig wearing crossdresser and Mortimer, have this feature.
* In ''Webcomic/TheWolfAtWestonCourt'' flirtatious dandy Elgin has long flowing red hair.
* ''All the males'' in ''Webcomic/SwordPrincessAmaltea'' have hair that go beyond thier shoulders. This been because the story's world is a {{Matriarchy}} and men have female roles, including being pretty. This makes Prince Ossian BoyishShortHair more significant and shocking.
* In ''WebComic/StandStillStaySilent'', Reynir has a braid reaching below his waist and is one of the characters whose gender is the most often mistaken.
* In ''Webcomic/{{Moxie}}'', Choco has long brown hair that is pulled back in a ponytail.
* In ''Webcomic/TheBackOBeyond'' Seb has long hair. Nate does too, but isn't 'pretty.'

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'':
** Aqualad has long, black hair that runs down to his shoulders, a lean muscular physique and is consider very handsome as both Raven and Starfire get a crush him the first time they see him.
** As an adult Robin is shown to have long hair. This is different from in the comics, where ComicBook/{{Nightwing}} has had long hair but it was a mullet instead of standard long hair. Robin is a ChickMagnet as a teenager so it's certain he'd be one as an adult as well.
%%* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'': Several characters, including [[PornStache Haru]] and Firelord Ozai.
* In ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'', flashbacks of the titular character's dad Greg in his youth showed [[IWasQuiteALooker he was quite attractive]] and that his hair went past his knees like it does in the present, although he now has a bald spot.
* ''WesternAnimation/SymBionicTitan'': Lance's black hair goes down to his shoulders, and he is incredibly popular in school, especially with the girls.
* ''WesternAnimation/Ben10'': Kevin Levin, whose black hair falls to his shoulders. He grows up into a tall, muscular young man who's had multiple girls gain a crush on him.
%%* ''WesternAnimation/GeneratorRex'': Van Kleiss is also an older example.
%%* ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'': Finn would be considered this when he removes [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_aMx50S2lv8&t=3m23s his hat]].
%%* ''WesternAnimation/{{Metalocalypse}}'': Skwisgaar Skwigelf and Toki.
%%* ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'': John Redcorn.
* ''WesternAnimation/VoltronLegendaryDefender'', Prince Lotor of the Galra Empire has waist-length white hair and when compared to his father Zarkon, who looks more alien, his fine facial features perfectly stand out, helped by the fact that [[spoiler: he's half-Altean on his mother Honerva's (also known as Haggar) side.]]

[[folder:Real Life]]
* Ancient Spartan warriors wore their hair long as it was said to make a handsome man more beautiful and an ugly one more fearsome. It was often braided and wound around the head so as to fit neatly under a helmet.
