Whether it's good or evil, a person's hair comes to symbolize honor, social status, and otherwise serves as a human peacock tail, representing a life rather than a fashion statement. Hair is not merely a possession or a symbol, but a part of a person's physical body. Thusly, having it forcibly cut off isn't just a minor fashion faux pas, but akin to rape; and is likened to having your life stolen from you.
From another view, a forced haircut serves as the symbolic initiation of worse things to come. To women, this may be traumatic due to the belief that Long Hair Is Feminine.
A minor subtrope involves having long hair being the source of a hero's powers, or rather, commitment to obey God's command for you personally not to cut it. In modern tales, it can be an emotional anchor that when cut off renders a hero vulnerable and powerless.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })Compare Important Haircut, where it is often self-induced to indicate a change in values or goals, and Expository Hairstyle Change for when there's any hairstyle change that also indicates a change in character. See also Scars Are Forever and Beauty to Beast for the grisly body part version, as well as the milder and more comedic version, Nobody Touches the Hair. If this gets Played for Laughs then it's a Gag Haircut though it does overlap with this since it can still be traumatic for the character. Might come up if the story touches upon The Topic of Cancer.

Averted in The Smurfs episode "Smurfette's Golden Tresses". Hogatha captures Smurfette and orders her to cut off all her hair so that the evil witch could use it to give herself natural blond hair. Papa Smurf has Smurfette hide her hair underneath her hat and then has Barber snip off some fur from a bearskin rug and dye it yellow to make it look like Smurfette cut off all her hair.

During their 'learning' excursion from All Japan Pro Wrestling to the Continental Wrestling Association in 1981, Atsushi Onita and Masanobu Fuchi lost a Tag Team hairs vs hairs match to Bill Dundee and Steve Keirn. Fuchi would take it well in the long run, becoming known for keeping his hair short, Onita, not so much.

X-23 normally has long and flowing black hair that reaches well below her shoulders, but when she first appears in All-New X-Men she's completely bald; likely due to either having her face melted off by Hazmat on Murderworld, or whatever it was the Purifiers did to her afterwards. However in a nice touch by the artists, her hair grows back out to its normal length over the course of her attempt to escape from Cyclops's Weapon X base and subsequent conversation with O5 Scott. Overlaps subtly with Expository Hairstyle Change; Laura is suffering severe Trauma-Induced Amnesia while bald, and her hair growing back out coincides with her memories returning and shaking off her confusion over meeting the time-displaced O5.

In the Magdalene laundries in Ireland (as depicted in The Magdalene Sisters above), nuns would often cut girls' hair if it was too long and pretty out of 'fear' it would tempt boys too much.

The Mighty Thor:
Karnilla the Norn Queen, sometimes foe and sometimes the helpful lover of his half-brother Balder, was abducted by giants to lure Balder into a death trap, and as part of her imprisonment her Rapunzel Hair was hacked off to little longer than a buzz cut (along with her being forced into rags as a scullery maid). Oddly for this trope, the cutting isn't shown beyond a panel of a lock of her long hair being held up to a knife, it's already done by the next panel. Odder still is the fact that she clearly hates her circumstances but seems to give no thought to her haircut, to the point of it never being mentioned by her or Balder when they're reunited- perhaps to emphasize the tenderness of the once famously handsome, now white-haired and paunchy Balder and his ragged, shorn, formerly glamorous lady-love not caring that they're both a sorry sight compared to their old selves and just being happy to see each other again.
Thor's own girlfriend Sif cared a lot when Loki shaved her head in a deliberate ploy to make her less attractive to Thor. Sif had the last laugh, though- Thor liked her new hair, which turned black after Loki backed out on paying the dwarves who made it out of gold, better than he'd ever liked her old blonde locks, and found her even more strikingly beautiful than before.

The Devils - right before he is tortured into confessing, Grandier has his hair all cut off as well as his beard and eyebrows shaved. Oliver Reed went through with it for real - having grown facial hair to hide a scar he got in a bar fight. Right before Grandier's hair is cut, he asks for a mirror so he can look at himself one last time.

Bleach:
During junior high (and before her brother's death) Orihime used to be tormented by other girls, who cut her long reddish brown hair since they didn't like it. After Tatsuki saved her, Orihime vowed never to cut her hair again as a symbol of their friendship.
Ayasegawa Yumichika's attack on Charlotte Cuulhuorne's hair is enough to make Charlotte go to his released form, despite already dominating the fight. It's implied Yumichika did it deliberately in an attempt to make Charlotte release sooner rather than later — it worked. It's also a call back to Yumichika's fight with Ganju, who knew he was weaker and less skilled than Yumichika so tossed a firework at Yumichika's hair which won him the fight... because the very vain Yumichika was left with a Funny Afro (he uses a wig to cover it up).

It didn't actually happen onscreen, but in one scene in Shadowchasers: Torment where Ben and Dugan are talking about Dugan's days in the Marines, Dugan (who has been naturally bald all his life) says that he was a helpful guy to have around when new recruits were getting military haircuts. All he'd have to do if a recruit was reluctant was point to his own bald head and say, "Easy kid, yours will grow back."

Used in Lockout when Snow cuts and dyes Emilie's hair to disguise her as a male. Particularly notable is that he tells her that "it's going to be fun" and the audience gets to watch him (but not her) during the actual event as she screams and objects. Ick.

Lex Luthor. Yup, Pre-Crisis Lex Luthor's original reason for turning evil was that, whilst he and Superboy were friends, one accident causes Lex Luthor... To lose all of his hair prematurely! "Oh no, my life is ruined! I'll get you for this, Superboy!" It's not nearly that simple. Lex had just created living matter in the lab, and with it he was preparing a treatment to immunize his friend Superboy to Kryptonite. A lab fire and Superboy's precipitate action to extinguish it destroyed the matter, and the fumes rendered Luthor bald. He resented both, but the destruction of his artificial life and the kryptonite cure were what really unbalanced Lex (and maybe all those weird fumes had something to do with it...).

In one of The Baby-Sitters Club spinoff "Little Sister" books, Karen hates the short haircut she gets (mainly because she didn't ask for it to look like that) and tries various methods to make herself look nicer again, including repeatedly going by more "glamorous" names. Luckily her hair is growing back by the end of the story.

During the lead-up to WrestleMania 3, Adonis teamed with Beefcake and Greg Valentine against Rick Martel, Tom Zenk and Lanny Poffo in a 6-man tag team match. By this time, the match between Piper and Adonis was already slated to be hair vs. hair. During the match, Beefcake had Martel backed against his team's corner and Adonis took out a pair of scissors, planning on cutting Martel's hair to show what he'd do to Piper. Martel switched places and put Beefcake in the corner, causing Adonis to cut his hair by accident.

The Simpsons:
Lisa gets a large wad of gum in her hair and people spend the rest of the episode trying homespun recipes to get it out (honey, peanut butter, etc). Finally she gives up and goes to a barber, who tells her he understands how important a girl's hair is. Cue the next shot, where he's just shaved that part of her head. And then next shot, where Lisa has a nice hairstyle. "I look like a real person!". Then Lisa goes outside and immediately Nelson goes "Haw haw!" at her; she sticks a bobble-hat over her head to hide her cool new hairstyle, suddenly and inexplicably ashamed of what she had liked just moments before.
In a season 4 episode, during a flashback, two-year-old Bart, jealous of all the attention Lisa is getting cuts off all her hair. "Who's cuter now?"
In the episode "Simpson Tide", Homer tries to avoid getting his head shaven after joining the US Navy Reserve. He isn't successful and is left holding the few strands of hair in his hands.
In Dog of Death, the family must cut costs to afford an operation for a sick Santa's Little Helper; forcing Bart to get a cheap haircut from a student at the local barber college. The results are unfortunate.
In Itchy & Scratchy Land, Homer gets his strands of hair chopped off by Robot Itchy while dodging his axe.

In The Phantom Menace, the last scene shows Anakin as a young Padawan, with his former mop now replaced with the Padawan style (flattop with a braid at the right temple). He seems rather unhappy about it.

George Sanderson from Monsters, Inc. He is always known for his tendency to get certain objects that originally belonged to human children (such as socks) onto his fur, and since all the other monsters think that making contact with children's belongings is considered deadly to them, poor George actually had to have all of his fur shaved off just for his safety (and he's not very happy about it). Fortunately, his fur grew back at the end of the film.

D.Gray-Man:
Lenalee's long, beautiful hair is destroyed (leaving it boyishly short) after her battle with the Level 3 Akuma. She does begin to regrow it, and at the current point in the manga it is now shoulder length.note In Hallow, it is at bob length. However, she was never shown being distressed by the fact her hair was cut. It also technically counts as an Important Haircut as she discovers the depths of her resolve.
A funny example is the fact that Allen and Kanda threaten to shave the other's head. During a sparring practice they wagered their hair on the outcome.

At Sacrifice 2008, Roxxi Laveaux lost a hair vs hair match and got her head shaved. Similar to Molly Holly, it was necessary because her hair had been ruined from constant dyeing. She kept her bald look for several months before growing it back. Of note it was not the hair of her opponent on the line but that of Angelina Love, who with The Beautiful People stable (Velvet Sky, Madison Rayne) would often assault people and cut out chunks of their hair with scissors and sabotaged the match to ensure Laveaux lost. They had also been involved in an angle where "The Governor" fooled them into thinking she was Sarah Palin. Once Laveaux and Taylor Wilde revealed to them she wasn't, The Beautiful People were furious at being humiliated, triple teaming not Palin and cutting chunks off her hair.

Naruto:
In the arc involving the main trio's first test for chunin, they are attacked by another group of ninja. The attacking kunoichi has Sakura by a fistful of her hair, and quips abut how pretty her hair is and that if she "spent more time training and less time shampooing", then she wouldn't be in this situation (Sakura had grown it out to make herself more attractive to Sasuke). Angrily, Sakura grabs a knife and chops it off herself to get away, having Ino tidy it up later.
Ino chops her hair off while fighting Sakura, seemingly in a fit of rage. In reality, she was setting up a trap by channeling chakra through the hair to pin Sakura. Hers was still left long enough to tie up, as she only cut past her hair tie, and she wore it in a short ponytail or covered bun until the timeskip where unlike Sakura, she regrew it.

Pictured above: Evie has her head shaved for her interrogation in V for Vendetta. Upon finding out that it was V who actually put her through the whole ordeal, her first accusation was that "you cut my hair!" Even before mentioning that he tortured her. Notably, Natalie Portman really had her head shaved for that scene, and she stated that it's something she had wanted to do for a while.

In Red Seas Under Red Skies, the second book of the Gentleman Bastard Sequence, Locke observes a noble's holiday retreat in which chess is played with live peasants who are paid a pittance to endure the game and must pay a gruesome forfeit when "taken". Forfeits can be anything short of actual death. One of the first ones he observes is a young female "chess piece" being forcibly stripped, and when this has little effect on her the noble player orders that her head should be shaved as well.

In Jane Eyre, the narrator witnesses Mr. Brocklehurst's visit to Lowood School, where he admonishes a girl named Julia for having curled her hair, saying that she is giving her soul over to Satan, she will burn in hell for idleness and vanity, and demanding that it be cut off as soon as possible — never mind that Julia's hair is naturally curly. The book has many film and miniseries adaptations, and usually this scene gets exaggerated; sometimes Janes's Ill Girl best friend Helen becomes the haircut victim instead of Julia; sometimes Jane protests about it, only to end up getting her long hair cut off too; in other adaptations, all of the Lowood girls (Jane included) get their hair forcibly cut when they get into the school, as a part of their "mortification".

Alien Dice:
Everytime Lexx rolls up a level, his hair grows out and sometimes changes color. He normally cuts it back to his normal, short, length, but he still sees it as a sign of one more situation he has no control over. Since his lack of personal freedom is a major part of his backstory, he's understandably very controlling about his hair.
Chel has her waist-length hair cut when she is kidnapped. Soon after, she breaks a mirror to make a knife so that she can cut her hair further (removing a rat-tail that the kidnappers left) and re-assert her independence and control.

Fantine, in Les Misérables willingly sells her hair to buy a woolen skirt for her daughter Cosette. Though other heroines in other books do the same thing (e.g. Little Women), for Fantine it is the first step towards her degradation and shame, as her beautiful hair is one of the few things left she has of beauty and sentimental value.

In the Madeline animated movie "Lost in Paris", this is downplayed. LaCroque threatens the lace shop girls with this all the time because lace is supposedly made from human hair. But when she finally cuts Madeline's hair, it's a few strands on one side; this is treated as if the poor girl has been shorn. Her 11 schoolmates later copy the cut in solidarity. However, Fifi's haircut is much more ragged and unattractive, thus playing the trope a little straighter.

In Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne, Fynn's background story involves one and is justified. An angel's hair contains their spiritual power and if a lot of it is cut at once, like it happened when a greedy priest wanted the power in Fynn's hair and cut it off to the familiar short hair with the two long strands in front, the power releases at once and overloads, causing something like an explosion that can kill people.

The Spanish game show El gran juego de la oca (The Great Game of the Goose) was a giant board game with each space on the board corresponding to a challenge of some sort. However one of the spaces was home to a demented barber. Whether you were male or female, getting one of three questions wrong (the third of which was always impossible to answer) resulted in your receiving an extreme haircut.

Played for laughs in Scrubs. Throughout the series, there are flashbacks to the two male leads' stay in college, all of which feature Chris Turk with an afro. In the last one, frustration over lost tickets to a basketball game causes Turk to start tearing his hair out in handfuls. At the end of the flashback, JD mentions that this is the reason Turk keeps his head shaved in the present.
In another, just as JD starts dating a girl who's in love with his hair, he starts challenging Dr Cox to "go the extra mile" for his patients. His attractive patient is about to lose her hair from chemo, and JD brings in her entire family, who all shave in solidarity. Because it's a sitcom, they expect JD to bald up as well. Which he eventually does. It takes a month for his hair to grow back.

Hank and his friends have to get their heads shaved after Bill infests them with head lice.
In the third season opener Luanne gets her hair burned off in the propane explosion, she actually spends most of the season with short hair until it eventually grows back to it's previous length.
It appears all the new recruits Bill shaves are often crying when he does so. Ironically the people in line laugh at the one crying, despite the fact the same thing will be happening to them soon.

The Powerpuff Girls:
In "The Mane Event" Bubbles and Buttercup accidentally pull out a huge chunk of Blossom's hair while playing with it, and their attempts to fix their mistake were less than successfull, making her look like she lost a fight with a lawn mower. She eventually gets revenge on the other two by butchering their hair. It's all back to normal next episode.
In the World Premiere Toons short, "Meat Fuzzy Lumkins," Bubbles has one pigtail turned into a drumstick by Fuzzy's Meat Gun. This proves ill for Fuzzy Lumkins.
Bubbles becomes a lovely victim to this trope in the reboot. In "Bubbles of the Opera", the apprentice for the hair salon turns out to be the same woman who gave Bubbles a bad school photo. What does she do? She makes Bubbles' hair very short. The apprentice ends up getting a restraining order for this.

Every season of America's Next Top Model has a "makeover" episode which involves every (surviving) contestant getting new hairstyles. At least one girl with long hair will have a crying fit when she finds out it's getting cut short. As the seasons go on, and the haircuts seem designed to neither make the model look better nor be more acceptable to the world of fashion, the line between "necessary sacrifice" and "traumatic hazing ritual" gets thinner and thinner.
There was one girl who defined herself by her long hair. Guess what they did? Cut it off. All of it. Because that was how she defined herself. The poor girl performed badly for the rest of the time she was on the show because she was so traumatized.
Season 5's Cassandra, whose hair was cut short (and who never stopped complaining about it), quit the show when Tyra wanted to cut it even shorter.
Season 16 had the opposite case in Molly. The Diana Ross weave in the makeover episode irritated her scalp so much she was actually euphoric when she got her cut.
Inverted with one of the male models, who started out with short hair but got extensions put in to give him a 'Jesus' look. It was every bit as ridiculous as it sounds. Another guy was given a facial hair weave, with similar results.

In Boys over Flowers after main character Tsukushi Makino gets kidnapped by Junpei Oribe his accomplices cut a huge hunk of her hair off as proof they have her to give Tsukasa Domyouji in order to lure him into a trap since they wanted to beat him up because of things he did in the past. The cut and her mother's well-intentioned but awkward attempt to fix it leaves Tsukushi looking terrible, until Rui manages to cut it in a more manageable way.

In the manga version of Flame of Recca, Mikagami cuts Yanagi's hair after telling her about his dead sister (who she looks very much like, and apparently looks even more like with her hair short). Recca gets royally pissed, and brings up the hair=life comparison during the fight that ensues.

After defeating Bullet Club's then newest member, Adam Page, Jay Lethal vowed to run through each and every last member of the group, one by one. However Bullet Club had no intention of playing along and ended up ganging up on Lethal so Adam Cole could shave his head.
Lethal wasn't Cole's first head-shaving victim. Two years earlier Cole and The Kingdom attacked Michael Elgin after a match and shaved his trademark mullet off.

In Drumline. The talented but arrogant freshman Devon fails to memorize the band's rulebook, which requires shaving his head as punishment. Devon nearly quits the band rather than give up his cornrows, but he shows up at a party later that night with his hair combed out and electric trimmer in hand, as the first sign of character growth.

In Claymore, Clare and Teresa were both originally proud of their long, black hair. The process used to give them their powers turns their hair platinum blonde. Clare also is forced to cut her hair during training. Also, Clare accidentally cuts off a lock of Galataea's hair while rescuing her from Agatha, who's holding Galataea hostage. Much indignation ensues.

In The Order of the Stick, Haley's rival Crystal knocks Haley out, cuts off her ponytail with a dagger, then proceeds to trim off a good deal of the rest of her hair as revenge for a quip Haley had made when they were teenagers about Crystal's short haircut. Subverted in that Haley, while annoyed, refuses to let it distract her from the business at hand. (Interestingly enough, it makes her look like the earlier representative of her personality that wants to [paraphrase] "Stop all the emo stuff and get back to the jokes," who, along with self-reliance and optimism, gets Haley out of her depressed funk.) Gets a lampshading a little later, when she gets her long hair magically restored and Elan says he'd assumed the new do was meant to represent her character development... but nope, it was just a haircut.

At AAA's famous When Worlds Collide show in 1994, Octagón and El Hijo del Santo humbled two of AAA's most hated rudos, The Love Machine Art Barr and Eddie Guerrero of Los Gringos Locos, by defeating them in a mask versus hair match. This show, co-produced by WCW, was the first mainstream American exposure to the Mexican lucha libre style. The mask vs. hair match was also Barr's last appearance, as he would die later that month, and Eddie's first real exposure to an English-speaking audience during his pro wrestling career.

Vorkosigan Saga by Lois McMaster Bujold:
In Cetaganda, a Cetagandan noblewoman is restrained in an ingenious way — since Haut ladies never cut their hair, the bad guys decided to humiliate her by locking her hair to the floor. She refused to cut it even when Miles Vorkosigan came to the rescue (to her disgust, he compared it to animals gnawing through their limbs to escape a trap), so he had to distract her in order to cut it without her consent. With a knife. She was a bit upset afterwards. Also, a different noblewoman later gives Miles a lock of her hair; it's a surprisingly moving token of her esteem.
In Shards of Honor, this trope is used as a chilling prequel to a real rape (plus additional torture), when the sadistic psychopath bad guy cuts off a lock of Cordelia's red hair and plays with it. Terrifying when you realize it wasn't her he really wanted to torture, it was her fiancé.

In the Peach Girl manga Momo is bullied by a trio of Kairi's fangirls. They tell her that she doesn't deserve Kairi and force her to the ground while holding a lighter to her hair, telling her unless she signs a treaty (saying that she'll stay away from Kairi) then they'll burn all her hair off. Thankfully, Kairi rescues her, but not before the girls manage to singe a bit of Momo's hair.

In February of 2010, Hiroshi Tanahashi and Toru Yano were booked in a rubber match, but when Tanahashi won he was attacked by Masato Tanaka and Yano cut some of Tanahashi's hair. After Tanahashi and Yano had it out for another four months, Tanahashi beat Yano in a hair versus hair match only for Takashi Iizuka of CHAOS to attack him to prevent Yano from being shaved. When they instead tried to shave Tanahashi though Yoshihiro Tajiri made his official return to New Japan Pro-Wrestling to save his former rival and ensure Yano was shaved.

Played on the shame side as an important thing in Harakiri, where Tsugomo hunts down his cowardly enemies and defeats them only to cut off their topknots and later show them to their feudal lord. It works. The scene is also meant to mirror the discussion of scalping earlier in the film, so the message becomes rather anvilicious. Somewhat justified as in feudal Japan only monks, who made a vow of poverty, shaved their hair. To be bald was therefore to display a lack of status and wealth.

At WrestleMania 23, "Stone Cold" Steve Austin, Donald Trump, and Bobby Lashley beat Vince McMahon up and shaved his head after Lashley had defeated Umaga. Vince was humiliated and constantly covered his head with anything he could find, which led to a hilarious moment when he stuck his head up Lilian Garcia's skirt. Vince then vowed revenge and made Bobby Lashley's life a living hell for several months. Vince eventually grew his hair back.

In Princess Mononoke, Ashitaka is forced to cut his top knot as part of his exile from his tribe. This is made more painful since he is their last prince and must leave because he's been cursed to turn into a demon, presenting a threat to the whole village. He cuts the knot himself, and, while upset, is very stoic about the whole affair; the village elders, who have to watch, are mired in despair and several of them start sobbing as soon as the deed's done. It is never once even implied that he should commit suicide though, probably because no one expects him to survive for much longer anyway.

CM Punk, as the leader of the Straight Edge Society, had his "disciples" shave their heads as a sign of faith to the Straight Edge lifestyle, ended up a victim of this courtesy of Rey Mysterio Jr.. Punk covered it up with a luchador-esque mask, but ended up having that forcibly removed by Big Show during an episode of SmackDown. He's kept his hair short since then.note It's grown out quite a bit, but not to the length that he had it during the SES days.

Smallville's Lionel Luthor, unlike his spawn, had a lot of hair that he probably did not appreciate having shaved off for admission to general-population prison in the season 3 finale. He DID say "thank you" - also they were playing Mozart's Requiem in a sort of death montage - as the BACKGROUND to the haircutting scene. Most epic haircut ever. It's intercut with shots of his son being poisoned, the key witness in his murder trial walking into a safe house and then having it explode spectacularly, Martha Kent finding a huge Kryptonian symbol burning in the field AND Jonathon Kent collapsed and possibly dying. Yeah, that's epic.

In an episode of Stargate SG-1 with an Inferred Holocaust example, Daniel Jackson lost his long floppy hair with no explanation (and kept it that way for the rest of the series' run)... coinciding with waking up the prisoner of someone who actually had raped him once before.

Avatar: The Last Airbender:
At the beginning of the second season when Zuko and Iroh are forced to go on the run from Azula, they are required to cut off their ponytail and top knot to hide the fact that they are Fire Nation from the Earth Kingdom populace they intend to hide amongst. Although they are cutting off their own hair, the gravity with which the act is performed (combined with the obvious cultural relevance of the hairstyle since virtually every Fire Nation person is seen to have it) makes it clear that the act is a symbolic acknowledgement of the fact that they will never be able to return to their homeland. It crosses into Expository Hairstyle Change as well, since from then on Zuko's Character Development is symbolized through how his hair is styled.
Azula gets one in the season finale. Self-inflicted and a sign that she just went way off the deep end.

Molly Holly at WrestleMania 20. After being defeated by Victoria, she was strapped into a barber's chair and had her head shaved, prompting her to wear wigs with a chin strap attached because she was so embarrassed. In reality, the whole thing was her idea, because she noticed there wasn't going to be a women's match at all on the roster and decided to take drastic measures. She considers it to be her single-favorite moment of her career, and kind of wished that it was more culturally acceptable for a woman to be bald, because she loved it. Hers was traumatic for another reason. During the head shaving, the plastic guard on the clippers came off and, combined with Victoria's inexperience with using hair clippers, chewed up Molly's scalp. She wasn't acting. She was in real life pain!
In 2013, at the opening of Victoria's wrestling-themed restaurant in Chicago, Molly showed up for revenge to give Victoria a Traumatic Haircut of her own - with a kitchen knife!

The Big Show was shot with a tranquilizer dart and had his head shaved in the ring by Kurt Angle. Most disturbing was that Angle was making noises like he was getting off on it, though nothing explicitly sexual, while announcer Michael Cole went on and on about how Angle was "raping Big Show of his dignity". Repeatedly. For several weeks afterwards when referencing the event. Kurt Angle himself is a victim of this, having lost a Hair vs. Hair match to Edge. However, after a few weeks of embarrassing toupees, Angle has kept the look since. Supposedly, the whole reason they did that was because Angle was losing his hair anyway.

In Monstrous Regiment, "Ozzer" pretends to have had one of these while disguised as a barmaid, telling the enemy Zlobenians that the hair was cut as punishment because "they said I smiled at a Zlobenian soldier." Except Ozzer is really Polly. Who has cut her hair to pose as a boy, and who was a barmaid before she joined the army. It gets more complicated than that later...

On One Life to Live, a crazed Blair believed that the only reason her husband Todd had fallen in love with her was because of her resemblance to Marty—the woman he raped several years prior. To that end, she grabbed a pair of scissors and began cutting away at her hair. Several years later, in order to get revenge on Blair (who had earlier shoved her head into a toilet), her husband's mistress Skye drugged her, then hacked off all her hair once she passed out, giving Blair a very nasty surprise when she woke up the next morning. The funny thing is, in both cases, the actress wanted to cut her hair in Real Life and the show's producers decided to incorporate her decision into the storyline.

A very young (read: no older than 12) Sylia Stingray gets her head shaved fully bald in the flashbacks of Bubblegum Crisis 2040, per her Mad Scientist father's orders; it's to subject her to brain surgery, which provided Dr. Stingray with the material and data that would ultimately create the future Big Bad of the series, Galatea. Later, little!Sylia has a pixie-like cut and a bandage on her head, and when seen as an adult she's let it grow past her shoulders.

The manga version of Chrono Crusade shows that Chrono's hair was worn long as a child up until a battle right after what would have been his coming-of-age ceremony. During the battle his Rapunzel Hair is burned off to the shorter, jagged cut that he wears the rest of the time (in his true form). It seems pretty symbolic of Chrono losing his innocence, particularly since the battle marks the start of the trauma that eventually leads to him becoming a Failure Knight, if not downright developing PTSD (it's also worth noting that when he meets Rosette and Joshua in his Sleep-Mode Size, his previously short hair has grown long again, possibly hinting that he regains some of his innocence by spending time with the children).

The Appendices of The Lord of the Rings depict one of these in the backstory behind the war between the Dwarves and the Orcs. Hostilities were touched off when the Orc chieftain Azog killed King Under the Mountain Thrór, then beheaded him and branded his name on his forehead. All that would have been bad enough, but then Azog decided to shave off Thrór's beard, too. That was the absolute last straw for the Dwarves, who prided themselves on their full and manly beards, and so began a war of utter extermination.

Roddy Piper was also involved in the incident which gave Brutus Beefcake the nickname "The Barber". Short version: Adrian Adonis cut Brutus's hair, essentially to be a dick. Piper (by this point a face) has his "retirement" match at WrestleMania III with Adonis (Piper's retirement lasted less than two years). Piper beats Adonis with a sleeper hold, knocking him out, at which point Beefcake returns and shaves Adonis bald.
During the lead-up to WrestleMania 3, Adonis teamed with Beefcake and Greg Valentine against Rick Martel, Tom Zenk and Lanny Poffo in a 6-man tag team match. By this time, the match between Piper and Adonis was already slated to be hair vs. hair. During the match, Beefcake had Martel backed against his team's corner and Adonis took out a pair of scissors, planning on cutting Martel's hair to show what he'd do to Piper. Martel switched places and put Beefcake in the corner, causing Adonis to cut his hair by accident.

Played for laughs on Glee. In the first season, Puck shows up at school without hair. Turns out his mom found a spot on his head while washing his hair and forced him to go see a doctor. The doctor had to shave off Puck's beloved mohawk to be able to examine the spot, which turned out to be a harmless freckle. At first it's just a minor annoyance, until Puck gets to school and very quickly realizes that his badass reputation is in danger, as people seem to have lost their respect for him now that he no longer has badass hair.

In Rome, Servilia of the Junii is knocked from her litter and is beaten, stripped naked, and has her hair cut with a dagger as an act of revenge from another character. The entire experience is clearly very traumatizing to her, and she spends several days recovering.

In the manga and in Sailor Moon Crystal, this is played differently. After the same revelations, Usagi locks herself in her room for at least two days. When the others get in, they see it's because her already super long hair is growing to immense speed and volume, and she's had to invoke the trope and continuously hack it off.

In Malèna, as the women of the town gather to beat the crap out of the titular character as punishment for her supposed "crimes", one of many things that they do is take a pair of scissors and cut off poor Malena's hair. Sadly, she's already done this to herself, cutting her long locks into a bob in preparation to become a prostitute because she has no other means to support herself.

At one point in Animorphs, Rachel ends up having to sell 6 inches of her hair to an Iskoort in order to pay for the services of a guide-about-town (incidentally named Guide). He wanted all of it. Rachel threatened violence. Guide compromised. He also wanted the last foot and a half of Ax's tail. Same basic story.
Ax also describes how in Andalite society, someone who has shamed himself gets a certain kind of haircut (or fur-cut) called unschweet, with the idea being that their honor slowly returns as the hair grows back.

In the Chinese drama series The Empress of China, the main character Wu Meiniang gets sent to live her remaining days as a nun after Emperor Taizong's death, along with the other concubines who didn't give children to the Emperor. The first step is to get her hair shaved, all the more traumatic considering the importance given to hair in the series. Luckily, it grows back exceptionally quickly.

Reef gets this twice in Stōked:
In "Who Knows What Evil Lurks In The Heart of Clam?", Amber Green cuts off a good chunk of Reef's hair to keep it in her locket. Reef does not take this well and tells Fin that he is sorry for jumping to conclusions. He wears a hat for the remainder of the episode.
In the Grand Finale "Grom Fest", Reef loses his hair after crashing into Lo's boat. What happened was Reef was distracted by the Kahuna's comment on Reef being a "jerk" to the point he wasn't paying attention to where he was going. Reef was stuck between pieces of wood and Fin saved him at the cost of his top part of his hair. Later on, after taking the Kahuna's "hair depilatory", thinking it meant regrowth when it actually meant removal, Reef becomes completely bald.

In The Professionals fanfic Discombobulate, Doyle is rescued from where he is being tortured. On the way out his partner notices that his hair had been shaved. In the sequel 'Scars', Doyle refers to the incident with 'why that was one of the worst things they'd done to him he couldn't explain.' Considering his kidnappers used electric torture, starvation and drowning to convince him to talk it must have been pretty traumatic.

For years in the Memphis territory, Jerry Lawler was undefeated in hair vs. hair matches. In 1987, he faced Austin Idol in a steel cage hair vs. hair match. The cage went around the entire ringside area to keep Idol's manager, Paul Heyman, from interfering, but Tommy Rich had been hiding under the ring since before the show started. Rich interfered and helped Idol win, leading to Lawler (who was EXTREMELY popular in Memphis) getting his head shaved. The haircut was evidently more traumatic to the fans, who rioted while it took place (one fan actually started climbing up the cage). Idol, Rich and Heyman needed a police escort to get back to the locker room.

Happens to the recruits in Stripes. Winger and Ziskey's haircuts weren't so severe so they still look good. However, some of the others like Ox (John Candy) get their heads completely shaven off and are left in shock holding their hair. Ziskey makes the mistake of singing and dancing like a "Hare Krishna" which Ox does not find hilarious.

Valhalla has a number of examples, both from Norse myth and comic-specific.
The first and most obvious is Loki's cutting of Sif's hair, which led to him being forced to replace it by Thor, and having the dwarves Brokk and Sindri forge new hair of pure gold for her, along with several other magical items.
Played for laughs when Tjalve thinks he's getting one, but is in fact just overreacting to a slight hairstyle change.
When Tyr gets his hair cut short, he acts like this. Originally it's played for laughs, but when it becomes apparent he was using his hair to cover several marks which identify him as a Jotun, it very quickly stops being funny.

Anne Hathaway was not acting filming the above mentioned haircut scene in Les Misérables (2012), as she sacrificed her own hair on screen. West End actress Nicola Sloane recalls them doing one take, where she chopped the front part of the hair off and Anne called for cut - soon bursting into tears when she felt how short the hair already was. They had to swap Nicola out for her hairdresser for the remainder of the scene. According to the actress, she was especially distraught because her wedding was coming up soon.

Alexander Pope's The Rape of the Lock satirizes an actual scandal of an involuntary haircut that tore apart the engagement of one of Pope's friends. He took the real events, changed the names to protect the innocent, added sylphs and gnomes and other Divine Machinery, and wrote up a grand big battle that breaks out between the men and the women over the ill-fated lock. The joke is that the lock of hair is pretty small, about as long as a finger. For extra hilarity, the lock of hair ends up pretty well off once the dust has settled.

Rugrats:
"Chuckie's First Haircut": Chuckie had to get his hair cut. Since he's two and a coward, he didn't want one. It didn't help that Angelica terrified him into believing that a hair cut involves having every one of his hairs pulled out by the roots and that his father ended up suffering a traumatic haircut when he tried to show him that haircuts were harmless.
"Showdown at the Teeter Totter Gulch": Tommy and Chuckie visit a playground where a bully known as "The Junk Food Kid" terrorizes all the kids who play there. The bully turns out to be a candy-eating toddler, and ends up blowing a huge bubble with her gum and smashing it into the long golden curls of another of the babies, and she has to get all the hair cut off. At the climax of the episode, however, the Junk Food Kid tries the same thing on Tommy, but he pops the bubble, causing the same thing to happen to her.

Crossing over into Real Life: WWE producer Michael Hayes received one during the infamous Plane Ride from Hell in 2002. During the flight, an apparently highly intoxicated Hayes nearly urinated on Linda McMahon (thinking he was in a bathroom), picked a fight with John Layfield, and continued in obnoxious behavior until he fell asleep. Enter X-Pac, who sneaked up on the sleeping Hayes and cut off his signature mullet, to the applause of the entire plane. Hayes didn't discover his mullet was gone until he was in customs back in the States, and had a flip-out in the middle of the line.

In the second book of the Sword of Truth series, Kahlan gets her hair lopped off when she's sentenced to execution. This is one of the more obvious examples, as in a good chunk of the series' world, a woman's hair is directly and explicitly tied to her status, and Kahlan has the longest locks around. She also lops off a bit of her own hair. That doesn't sound awesome, but Confessors are magically incapable of cutting their own hair, as part of an enforcement of the status symbol. A Confessor who cuts her own hair suffers debilitating pain. In part because of that knowledge, Richard realized that Kahlan really did love him despite putting the Rada'Han on his neck and sending him to the Palace of the Prophets.
Also, the first Confessor, Magda Searus' long hair was cut to her shoulders when her husband, an all important war-mage died because her status was only that of a wife. And that is why, upon becoming the first Confessor, she decreed that Confessors would never cut their hair.

The Bible:
After losing his precious locks to Delilah (and his godlike strength), Samson is captured by the Phillistines, has both eyes gouged out, and chained between two pillars to serve as entertainment at a party, making this trope Older Than Feudalism. In this case, it wasn't the hair itself that was the source of power — God had decreed He would empower Samson so long as he followed the restrictions of a Nazarite but Samson broke every single one of them — getting his hair cut was the last straw, at which point God withdrew His blessing until Samson asked forgiveness and God gave him his strength back, allowing Samson to die honorably through Taking You with Me.
Also, the instructions for when an Israelite soldier decided that a (non-Canaanite) female prisoner of war was attractive. After the war was over, he was to take her into his home, shave her head and trim her nails, get rid of her old clothes and other cultural attachments, and give her a month to mourn her family and culture. After that month of mourning was up, she would become his wife. If he then decided that he didn't want her anymore, he was to let her go free, and was not allowed to sell her into slavery.

In Punch Line, bullies at Ito's school put gum in her hair then cut her hair. This and other things done by bullies caused her to quit school.

In Ooku: The Inner Chambers, Iemitsu, frustrated by her imprisonment and situation, orders her retainer go out into the streets and chop off women's hair. This was likely inspired by Iemitsu's own Traumatic Haircut, which happened not long after being kidnapped and forced to pose as her father.

Among the Tiste Edur people in Steven Erikson's Malazan Book of the Fallen, those banished in disgrace are "shorned" (shaven bald), and their scalps doused in chemicals so their hair will never grow back, to mark them as outlaws.

The Deed of Paksenarrion: This may ring a bit hollow given the rest of the terrible stuff that follows (including actual rape), but a shaved head is one of the first things to be done to Paks during her five days of Cold-Blooded Torture. The act invoked the (more lawful) established practice of tinisi turin ("shorn sheep"), a punishment for military criminals. Considering that Paks' long, thick yellow hair is one of her defining features, it does sting.

Behind The Veil: When Kathleen Allan sold her ex-husband to a Mage in exchange for another werewolf, she had little idea that his current lover Roxanne Pavlenco would take it so badly. Less than two hours later she found herself kidnapped by said lover, tied up and forcibly shaved when she wasn't forthcoming with who she sold him too.

In Game of Thrones:
Dowager Queen Cersei's Walk of Shame includes having her precious golden locks cut short by the Septas. She opts to keep wearing the hair short in subsequent seasons.
Ser Loras also has all his hair cropped short right before his trial.
Arya has hers cut to disguise as a boy. It's traumatic because she doesn't have the reasons explained until after.

Miss Kitty had one of these done to her by Terri Runnels during a makeover. Terri took her to the beauty parlour supposedly for a day of pampering but spiked her drink. Kitty woke up with her hair cut and badly coloured. And Terri had done the same to her dog too.

Spartacus: Blood and Sand:
The protagonist gets all his long shaggy hair hacked off down to the scalp at the start of episode two when he is purchased as a gladiator to make him look more presentable. Overlaps somewhat with Important Haircut as it is the first part of his induction as a gladiator as well as one of the steps the Romans use to Break the Haughty.
Pops up as part of a Bait-and-Switch in the second last episode of season 1. When it is revealed Naevia and Crixus have been sleeping together, Lucretia is seen attacking Naevia savagely in her chambers and asks for a servant to bring her a knife. Naevia is not seen for the rest of the episode implying she has been killed but she appears at the end scalped before being sent away from the ludus. Crixus gets his revenge in the next episode.

In the women's prison film Caged, Matron Harper threatens this as punishment for any severe infractions (notably against the wishes of the Reasonable Authority Figure). After Marie is found hiding a kitten in her room, she's punished by having all her long hair shaved off. It marks the point where she gets completely broken from the doe-eyed good girl she was when she entered prison.

In the Afghan film Osama, the main female lead does this in order to pose as a boy. Her braid is put in a flowerpot and watered for symbolism. Tragically, it didn't work and she got caught and married off anyway before she could escape Afghanistan. The last scene implies that her new husband had just had sex with her, despite her being only a child.

In Get Some In!, Teddy boy Jakey Smith is very proud of his "duck's arse" haircut, an integral part of the Teddy boy look. When he goes for his haircut after reporting for National Service in the Royal Air Force, he gives the barber detailed instructions for how he wants it styled. The barber pretends to listen, then grabs the front of Jakey's hair and chops it off completely, causing him to howl in despair as he sees his reflection in the mirror.

One of Cori Falls' Pokémon fics, based on the above-mentioned Scyther episode, took this to the extreme; Jessie was so traumatized about her hair getting cut off that not only did she threaten to kill herself over it, but she also threw all of her hair-care products and accessories into a lake. The way she was acting, you'd think she thought her hair was never going to grow back, ever. (James wasn't too happy about his bad haircut, either, but he did not go to the extremes that Jessie did.)

Taken in a silly direction in the laserdisc game Badlands. At one point, a scorpion leaps at Buck from atop a cactus. If he doesn't shoot it in time, it lands on his head and cuts his hair into a mohawk. It's hard to decide what's funnier — the face Buck makes afterwards, or the fact that this costs you a life.

In episode 6 of the anime adaptation of Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions, despite claiming it as the only way to apologize Isshiki actually doesn't want to go bald. However, Nibutani demands he goes through with it. Isshiki does, but isn't happy at all. Especially considering he had to deal with being bald for the past three years, and fears he will end up Prematurely Bald like his father.

Warhammer:
An incident like that started a war between the elves and dwarves. The elves had a dwarven emissary shaved, which became the famous last straw. The war has subsequently been known as the "War of Vengeance" to the dwarves, and the "War of the Beard" to anyone else currently out of dwarven earshot. Not just shaved, but also laughed out of court, beaten, shaved and sent back to the dwarven kingdoms in that state. But the beard was the main reason
The ritual for becoming a Slayer in dwarven society implies shaving your head except for a huge mohawk and dyeing it orange, so that anyone can see at a glance your disgrace.

In The Outsiders by S. E. Hinton, the main character, Ponyboy, is attacked by socs and they attempt to cut his hair (long hair was his emblem of greaser status) when they try to, he begins screaming and fighting to be released. However, in later chapters he is forced by circumstances to both dye and cut his hair. Ponyboy and Johnny also discuss how judges force convicted greasers to get haircuts as a way to break them.

In the pilot for My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, a camp river serpent throws a hissy-fit because he lost part of his mustache to Nightmare Moon. Rarity immediately cuts off her own tail to fashion a replacement mustache for him.
Played for laughs when Rarity accidentally shampoos her mane with a magical remover formula, causing a good majority of her mane to get disintegrated.

The second involved Trish Stratus. Trish and Victoria were slated to headline the FWF's first pay-per-view, but Victoria felt defeating Trish in the ring wasn't enough - she had to be humbled and humiliated, so asked for a hair vs. hair match. After losing the match, Trish cried while her hair was shaved off, but the fans cheered for her anyway.

In The Horse and His Boy, The talking horses Bree and Hwin must have their tails cut short to disguise themselves as packhorses. Bree is especially annoyed and tries to delay his entry into Narnia so that he won't undergo the shame of being seen with a ragged tail by the rest of his kind. It's not helped by how Shasta and Aravis didn't have anything similar to scissors and had to use a scimitar, which made the process actually quite dangerous and painful.

In the Grand Finale "Grom Fest", Reef loses his hair after crashing into Lo's boat. What happened was Reef was distracted by the Kahuna's comment on Reef being a "jerk" to the point he wasn't paying attention to where he was going. Reef was stuck between pieces of wood and Fin saved him at the cost of his top part of his hair. Later on, after taking the Kahuna's "hair depilatory", thinking it meant regrowth when it actually meant removal, Reef becomes completely bald.

In The Blair Witch Files (a spin-off of The Blair Witch Project), one book deals with a girl called Louise Irwin. Once her parents and uncle die, her Aunt Mary doesn't want to keep her in the house. She also doesn't want to drive all the way to the next town to put her in a home for girls - so she cuts all Louise's hair off and sends her to the local home for boys as 'Lee Irwin'. Not surprisingly, Louise seeks revenge when she's older.

The Amazing Race used this as a Fast Forward challenge (a chance to get a big jump on other teams) twice.
The first team to encounter the Fast Forward was a pair of professional models. Rather than seriously damage a part of their professional image, they decided against taking on the challenge and returned to the regular course.
A husband-and-wife team, Uchenna and Joyce, came across this Fast Forward the second time it was offered. Uchenna was already shaved bald to begin with, so Joyce bravely let her long hair be cut off. Fortunately, Uchenna kept reassuring Joyce that she was still beautiful to him, even after sacrificing all her hair, and Uchenna and Joyce eventually won the race and the million dollars that season.

In the The Hunger Games fanfiction Some Semblance of Meaning, Achilles grabs Vale during his fight with Obsidian and holds his sword to her neck. When Obsidian tells him that he'd better not harm a hair on her head... Achilles takes a fistful of Vale's hair and slices it right off.

Attempted in Top Chef when near the second season, Cliff, Sam, Ilan, and Elia got drunk and decided to shave their heads. After that, they decided to grab Marcel and shave his head. Cliff, a huge black man, pinned Marcel down while he was calling out for help. Marcel managed to wiggle free and lock himself in the bathroom for the rest of the night. Cliff was kicked off of the show for his behavior.

The Chronicles of Narnia:
In The Horse and His Boy, The talking horses Bree and Hwin must have their tails cut short to disguise themselves as packhorses. Bree is especially annoyed and tries to delay his entry into Narnia so that he won't undergo the shame of being seen with a ragged tail by the rest of his kind. It's not helped by how Shasta and Aravis didn't have anything similar to scissors and had to use a scimitar, which made the process actually quite dangerous and painful.
In The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, the White Witch has Aslan tied down and his mane cut off before executing him. From their hiding place, Susan and Lucy weep at the sight. When he is revived, his mane grows back.

Queen of All Oni:
After Right defeats Viper in their first one-on-one fight, he shaves off most of her hair as a trophy and as reminder that he could have killed her if he truly wanted to. And, as it turns out, Jade needed the hair for some kind of ritual.
Happens to her again in the following chapter, when Ratso and Chow take her hostage and Chow shaves off some of her hair with a warning strike of his electro-sword.
And finally, when Jade abducts her for said ritual, she's shaved bald completely, so that Jade can paint symbols on her scalp.

Tangled naturally features this, being an adaptation of Rapunzel, but there's a twist: at the end of the movie, it's Flynn who cuts Rapunzel's hair. Her hair has magic properties that heal the wounded and make the old young again (why Gothel kidnapped her in the first place), but it loses its power if it's cut. When the villain stabs him, Rapunzel vows to stay with her forever if she'll be allowed to heal Flynn, who has been mortally wounded. By taking the option of cutting her hair before she does so, Flynn releases Rapunzel from the oppressive mother figure she's been stuck with for 18 years, knowing full well that he'll die as a result. (He gets better, as the last bits of healing magic that remain and Rapunzel's tears are good enough to save him.)

Forgotten Realms: played half-straight half-inverted in the case of Jarlaxle. In drow matriarchal theocratic society hair style reflects status. So, how guy can show he's not in the system, without being either Rule-Abiding Rebel or simply punished and ordered to reverse? By changing indicator state to "undefined". He shaved his head — Take That!, clergy.
In the latest book, Timeless, It is revealed that Jarlaxle's hair caught on fire no less than three times, each time leaving him with less and less hair until he throws the towel in and makes himself completely bald. Typical.

In Frasier, when the staffers of radio station KCYL accept a wieght-loss challenge against a rival station, a week of desperate remedies results in a final weigh-in where Frasier's team are losing by mere ounces. Ros Doyle, who has suffered more than most from privation, cannot accept this and demands a pair of scissors. She orders a team-mate to hack off her long pony-tail on live TV. Then demands a new weigh-in. The loss of half a pound or so of her hair ensures victory for her side.

Keiko's haircut early in Yu Yu Hakusho is treated like this: Yusuke's house caught on fire, and being aware that he couldn't come back to life if his body was destroyed, Keiko barged in to save him. Despite Yusuke's protests, Koenma offers to save them both for a price. When the deed is done, Koenma reveals that, in return for them to be saved, he had to take something away from her body, which scares Yusuke off his pants, thinking she had lost an arm or a leg. When he realizes the fire had just singed the tips of Keiko's hair and she had to cut it short, Yusuke is pissed at Koenma because he made him think such terrible things.

In the first episode of Total Divas the office fears that Eva Marie resembles the Bella Twins too much and asks her to dye her hair blonde. Eva revealed later than she had already just got her hair streaked, and the office wasn't happy with that, which is when they asked her to bleach it. She couldn't go through with it and instead chose to become a Dark-Skinned Redhead instead. Fortunately for her, the office liked the final result.

In The Color Purple Celie writes that Misters girls have hair that hasn't been combed since their mother died, being that it is so unmanageable, she suggest shaving the hair off and starting fresh. Mister disagrees and says that it is "bad luck to cut a woman hair."

In Salute Your Shorts, Budnick is briefly persuaded to let his love interest shorten his hair. But as he is led to the barber chair, he imagines it as an electric chair. After a few dramatized snips, he can't take it anymore.

Oddly enough, inverted at one point in Gravity Falls. A bully sticks a piece of gum in Mabel's hair on picture day, causing her to dissolve into tears. Dipper cheers her up by finding a razor and convincing her to just shave a chunk of it right off - using his own hair to demonstrate. In the end, Mabel is comforted by the fact that they get to have a horrible school picture together.

Cold Case. Scotty notices that his mother has abruptly cut her hair. She offhandedly claims that she wanted to try something new. However, several episodes later, Scotty learns that she was raped (attacked while leaving the supermarket) and viewers quickly surmised that she got the haircut as a reaction to her ordeal.
