I think people in the younger generation have experienced so much economic up-heaval that we just do not have time for the high maintenance and high cost short cut style and are politely declining it. I might be biased in my views because I am a pretty traditional indigenous person, but I think cultural awareness is growing of long hair being historically masculine. I also think with the decline of extreme religiosity in protestantism and roman catholicism that people might be literally letting down their hair. I notice hispanic men are growing their hair longer. I do not know if this is because they are getting back in touch with their indigenous roots or not, but I suspect it is. Hopefully we see less militarism out of whites in the future and more of an embracing of their own cultural histories, which are largely Germanic and Celtic-both groups traditionally embraced long hair as masculine. When I see a white guy with long hair, I destress because I know that he has the capacity to embrace that part of my cultures and he is more than likely not a white supremecist. So, you can imagine why I might react this way being something of a visible minority. Any way, keep on growing and make the world safe for less bigotry.
