[[quoteright:350:[[Anime/{{Yadamon}} http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Yadamon01pic069b_432.jpg]]]]

Wings that sprout out of a person's head where her hair would usually be. In some cases the person has normal hair that she can transform into wings, while in other cases she will have HairWings as a permanent anatomical feature. Often the wings look rather hair-like, especially the parts close to the scalp. Almost AlwaysFemale, because LongHairIsFeminine.

Sometimes overlaps with both PowerGivesYouWings and PowerMakesYourHairGrow.

Compare EarWings, HelicopterHair, MercurysWings, SymbolicWings, and HatOfFlight. Subtrope of PrehensileHair.

* In ''Manga/AzumangaDaioh'', [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} Osaka]] fantasizes that Chiyo-chan can use her pigtails like this.
* Rosine from ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' has luna-moth-esque Hair Wings, which look particularly hair-like in her more humanoid form.
* ''Manga/{{Devilman}}'', Silene/Siren is one of the oldest characters to have this. Hers in particular are full feathered wings.
* In ''Anime/ShamanicPrincess'', Tiara's SuperMode gives her red Hair Wings.
* The eponymous protagonist of ''Anime/{{Yadamon}}'', pictured above, is a CuteWitch who can transform her hair into butterfly wings.
* ''Manga/LucuLucu'' features the demon Lucu Lucu who frequently flies via huge black wings made of her hair.
* Engi Threepiece's from ''Manga/YumekuiMerry'' are shaped like wings which she can glide with.
* Magi from ''Manga/ZettaiKarenChildren'' has PrehensileHair which he can (also) shape into wings and use them for flying.
* The (non-flightless) bird Friends in ''Anime/KemonoFriends'' have these.


* There's a Creator/ShelSilverstein poem about a boy with ridiculously long hair who was mercilessly teased about it until his weeping caused it to flap like wings, carrying him into the air.

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000''. When the SOL crew watch ''Film/TheSkydivers'', they speculate that Beth's very rigidly-styled hair could double as a parachute.
-->'''Crow:''' I predict in the climactic scene she jumps without a chute and her hair opens up.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* ''[[VideoGame/GuiltyGear Guilty Gear XX]]'': Millia Rage's hair takes the form of angel wings, during one of her EX drives, where she lifts vertically off the ground and dives at the opponent.
* Lionwhyte of ''VideoGame/BrutalLegend'' flaps his hair in order to fly.
* Lolo, a caddy in ''VideoGame/{{Pangya}}'' has hair that juts out of the side of her head that look like wings ... or maybe they're actual wings. Either way if the wind is blowing about 6m or higher she'll sometimes comment 'I'm glad I have wings'.
* The Siren summon from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII'' has huge, golden wings... sitting on top of her head. Even her eyebrows appear to be feathers, though it all does sort of blend in with actual hair (which is the exact same color as the feathers)
* The Celestials in ''VideoGame/{{Okami}}'' have hair wings (or stiff, winglike hair) which enable them to fly. Waka the prophet has winglike extensions on his NiceHat which have the same visual effect.
* This is often used for the explanation for why Knuckles the Echidna from ''[[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog Sonic the Hedgehog]]'' can glide on air currents. By assuming a skydiving stance, his dreadlock-like spines fan out like mini-wings, enabling flight for limited distances.
* Hair Wings are the defining trait of the the High Entia race from ''VideoGame/{{Xenoblade}}''. They can range from being very long (reaching half way down their legs) or comparatively short (Barely below the neck). There's a good reason for this, as small-winged High Entia are actually [[HalfHumanHybrid half-Homs]].

* In ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'', the Mysterious Cloaked Figure ([[spoiler:Noah]]) [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2011-05-13 makes hair wings]] (called by name in the commentary) that are actually hair.
* In ''Webcomic/DanAndMabsFurryAdventures'', 'cubi have miniature "headwings" ([[WingedHumanoid as well as a regular pair]]) in their default form. [[spoiler: Dan]] discovered he was one by having them grow in. Instantaneously.
-->"Miss, you have a bat in your hair!"
* Though not technically wings, Ariel of ''Webcomic/{{Drowtales}}'' has learned how to use her inherent shapeshifting powers to do something similar with her hair, which she mostly uses to glide and slow her decent, as well as using her air sorcery to guide her direction and keep her aloft.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* The Ice King in ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' uses his beard like a pair of small wings to fly. He of course loses this ability when he shaves it.
* In ''WesternAnimetion/{{Wakfu}}'' [[spoiler:Yugo has dragon wings made of [[LifeEnergy wakfu]] hidden under his hat. It's apparently a racial trait]].

[[folder:Real Life]]
* Sifaka lemurs are a very, very downplayed example. When they leap, the hair on their arms flattens out and forms a small airfoil, essentially functioning as a parachute.
