I don't think I've heard any such remarks to my face since the 1970s. My hair is well below my shoulders and has been for a very long time. If anybody doesn't like it they keep it to themselves. I think you need to be choosier about who you hang out with. Those people don't fit my qualification as friends.
The first time I wore my hair shorter after having it long, I did notice that bigoted people tended to mistaken me for one of them and talk more about their prejudices to me than when I had long hair. I sometimes think wearing long hair is a useful way of screening out such people. I have no interest in interacting with those people anyway.
