I read an article on the internet (you can Google "bald men more intelligent and masculine") that women were finding bald men more "intelligent and masculine", especially when they shave off their remaining hair (usually at the back), Bruce Willis or Telly Savalas style. I don't know if this is a real fashion trend or a passing fad.
In any case, I don't care about fashion and see the symbolism of long hair. Short hair started in the mid 19th century, but became more standard from World War I. The Romans generally had short hair (statues and other representations). Perhaps there is a collusion between "Romanticism' and long hair and "Classicism" with short hair in history.
Mine keeps growing and I don't cut it...
