Because there arent only women who love wearing their hair long, here is an article dedicated to men.
Adopted in all periods of history, long hair has a popularity and a social meaning which vary according to the cultures and the time. The hair length played a social key role, whatever it was a sign of¬†integration or rebellion.
More often represented in a shape of locks or braids, more and more men wear their hair naturally frizzy. One would tend to think that men with long hair are not masculine, maybe androgynous. However, history tells us another story.
The first people known for wearing dreadlocks were¬†Egyptians. Dreadlocks were synonymous of power and wealth because it was mainly worn¬†by royal families. In India, the god Shiva and his¬†disciples wore¬†intertwined hair knots. According to some historic writings, dreadlocks also appeared in the Aztec and Asiatic cultures.
Nowadays, dreadlocks are worn by some African peoples (including Masa√Įs) and more commonly in¬†Jama√Įca within rastafaris.¬†Locks are the deep expression of a religious or spiritual belief, the demonstration of an ethnic pride, a political link, or simply an¬†aesthetic preference.
More generally, whatever youre a man or a woman, hair is an expression field which reflects our personality.
Long hair undeniably gives men a kind of character and a sensuality of their own, which one can hardly describe.
