Playing With: My Hair Came Out Green
Basic Trope: Someone tries to dye their hair a naturally-occurring colour, but the resulting hair colour is something ridiculous
  • Straight: Alice tries to dye her hair blonde, but her hair turns green.
  • Exaggerated:
    • Alice's hair, skin, teeth, and all turn green.
    • After Alice's hair is shaved off, it grows back green.
    • Alice's hair glows in the dark. The glow is green.
    • Alice's hair is the color of a rainbow.
  • Downplayed: Alice dyes her hair blonde, but somehow ends up with a green streak.
  • Justified:
    • The dye is faulty.
    • Alice's hair is of a colour that plays merry cob with dyes.
    • Someone replaced her dye with something else.
  • Inverted: Alice wanted green hair, but it turned out blonde.
  • Subverted: Alice wanted green hair.
  • Double Subverted: ...but it came out pink instead.
  • Parodied: Alice dyes her blonde, but the shade of blond is a bit off. Everyone else and Alice acts like her hair has gone green.
  • Zig Zagged: ???
  • Averted: Alice's dye does exactly what it was intended to do.
  • Enforced: ???
  • Lampshaded: "Should've paid more attention to the 'RESULTS MAY VARY' warning on the bottle."
  • Invoked: The person doing the dying replaces the dye with green dye in order to humiliate her.
  • Exploited: ???
  • Defied: Alice tests the dye on a small sample of hair before trying it on herself.
  • Discussed: "Be careful with that dye. Your hair might come out green."
  • Conversed: "Why can't these characters ever dye their hair without looking like clowns?"
