Added DiffLines:

** Original series episode "The Mane Event" opens with the girls waking up in the morning. Bubbles and Buttercup rise with their hair unkempt and disheveled. Blossom subverts this as she beams, waving her perfectly coiffed ponytail back and forth.


* Anne's hair in ''WesternAnimation/{{Amphibia}}'' is a curly mess that always has leaves and twigs stuck in it.

Added DiffLines:

* Creator/SallyHawkins' hair is so unruly, in interviews, you often see her brushing it out of her face.


* Whenever ''Anime/KillLaKill'' fan-artist Herokick draws Ryuuko, they tend to draw her with messy hair, as illustrated [[http://herokick.tumblr.com/image/139948433742 here]] and [[http://40.media.tumblr.com/866d06a6bb9e367f9be2a8800377a86d/tumblr_nqpsk7ooB51smyvt8o2_1280.png here]]. It serves a contrast between her and Satsuki, as the latter's hair always neat, suiting her rather prim, proper, and practical personality, while Ryuuko's hair alludes to her wild personality.

Added DiffLines:

*Sabitsuki from ''VideoGame/DotFlow''. According to her ingame menu, she has "bed hair".


* Icarus from ''Disney/{{Hercules}}'' has spiked hair that is assumed to have been fried when he flew too close to the sun (along with a [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} few brain cells]]).
* Wanderer from ''Animation/LeafieAHenIntoTheWild'' has long, messy feathers on his head that emphasise his mysteriousness.

* [[TomboyPrincess Merida]] from ''WesternAnimation/{{Brave}}''. Her hair is not a reflection of her sanity or her quirkiness, but rather a consequence of her preferring more physical activities over traditional feminine traits such as taking care of her appearance. [[WordOfGod The creator]] of the character said that Merida was designed to give girls a more attainable role model and because of that, she was given messy hair to show that she has no time and/or interest in looking good. Considering that extremely curly hair is difficult to maintain, specially with medieval elements (Anti-Frizz hair products weren't invented) her hair is very realistic and [[JustifiedTrope justified]].

Added DiffLines:

* Shirogane's fringe in ''Manga/KaguyaSamaLoveIsWar'' isn't a deliberate choice on his part, it's bed head that he never has the chance to straighten out due to having to rush to school in the morning. Notably, flashbacks to before he had an increased workload as StudentCouncilPresident (and the one chapter where he got a good night's sleep), his hair is much neater.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Webcomic/AlternateHistory'', Yue has messy, disheveled hair to go with the fact she's a Fire Nation prisoner.

Added DiffLines:

** In the very first episode, after Twilight's encounter with Rainbow Dash and her "rain-blowdry" technique, Twilight's mane is messier than even Pinkie's! It only goes away after Rarity gets her hooves on it.

Added DiffLines:

* Sunshine from ''Literature/SurvivorDogs'' has messy, matted fur for no fault of her own. Maltese's are high-maintenance and are known for their silky, white pelts. As a stray dog running around in the forest, it's impossible for Sunshine to stay clean.

Added DiffLines:

* One of Creator/RobertPattinson's trademarks is his uncombed, basically almost punky hairstyle. Like with Mia Wasikowska, [[UnkemptBeauty this has not stopped him from being attractive]].


* Whenever ''Anime/KillLaKill'' fan-artist Herokick draws Ryuuko, they tend to draw her with messy hair, as illustrated [[http://herokick.tumblr.com/image/139948433742]] and [[http://40.media.tumblr.com/866d06a6bb9e367f9be2a8800377a86d/tumblr_nqpsk7ooB51smyvt8o2_1280.png]].

Some characters cannot be bothered to get their hair into a neat style, while others actually like their hair that way. All of them have Messy Hair. This is often used to set the character apart as unusual; it may indicate that they're a nonconformist, that they don't care about their appearance, or that they don't have the means to make themself look presentable, or that they are cool
