: I've been an undercover long hair for a while. 90% of the time I keep my hair up. When my hair is down, I seem to be pigeonholed. I've been pigeondholed as a stoner, as an artist, and as a musician. The truth is, though I am these things, artist, musician, I am pretty much deep down inside, very conservative.
I've had long hair now since 1964. I also don't drink or smoke pot but my political views are liberal.
I wear my hair down most of the time except when I need to do something to prevent damage.
I will never cut my hair, It will remain long until the day I die.
Ultimately it is up to you whether you cut your hair. My advice is to keep it long, and things will get better. You don't say how old you are, but I would mention that the complaints you get about your hair will lessen with age. When I was younger I got lots of complaints. But when I hit the age of 45 the complaints stopped.
A number of years ago I joined a civil war group, I was expecting (the mostly conservative) members to insist that I cut my hair. Didn't happen. I've gotten zero complaints and i've been in the group now for seven years.
