In Reply to: Long and Short Hair history and question posted by Jake on May 08, 2017 at 03:06:37:
: Many centuries ago only slaves had short hair and in many cases their heads were shaved while free men sported longer locks.
: men of royalty often had very long and stylish hair.
: it is only within the last century or so that this concept of very short haircuts became accepted.
: the obsession of civilian men wanting to pay for military haircuts makes absolutely no sense in a free society.
: In many cases the hair is shaven almost or completely down to the scalp. The desire of a man who is NOT in the military walking into a barber shop requesting a Marine Corps "high 'n' tight" makes absolutely no sense!
: so my question is:
: Is this a sign that men wanting these extremely short haircuts would really prefer to be enslaved instead of free?
It's just a style. Some think that long hair is enslaving, and that short hair is free. It's just a matter of personal opinion.
In the way that men should feel free to grow their hair (head/facial/body) as they please... they should also be able to keep that hair as short as they please... even shaved.
