    It depends on the tribe. Look up the Swabian knot, it's exclusive to a specific Germanic tribe. There were other styles in ancient Europe too. Slavs were known for scalplocks, shaved heads, mohawks, and long hair. Germanic people had long hair, shaved heads, etc. There are so many variations.

    As for short hair, that's a very Christian influence.

    Before Christianity became a major influence in Europe, the only ones who usually wore their hair short were the Romans. Long hair is generally what most Germanic tribesman had, with a few exceptions.

    Celts usually had long hair as well, but Pictish warriors sometimes sported shaved heads and mohawkss.

    Well, as far as today's standards, one has to accept that hair styles are the product of fads, and trends.

    If long hair on men became the new "chic" style, many men would begin growing their hair out. It is not the style, so few men (proportionally) grow their hair out.

    Even after the Christianisation of Europe many famous like Newton and others had long hair.Has long hair become a taboo for for men in Europe now?Has it become a convention?Also native Americans both men and women had long hair.Also north east asians and South east asians had long hair before western influence.

    Also Germanics,orginal Slavs,Celts had almost straight hair opposite of medittarrneans who have curly hair.So very short hair(not bald) can be called as Christian Semitic and Roman,Greek influence.

    I'm not sure. I have seen no evidence that short hair specifically is a form of Christianization. One unfortunate problem on this forum is that many people tend to find blanket scapegoats to blame unrelated problems on. Typically it's the Jews, but very often it's the grand liberal leftist-Marxist group.

    In this case, I see "Christian-blaming" without any evidence to support that Christianity would have had anything to do with it. The reason for the modern style of short hair has everything to do with fashion trends, and nothing to do with Christianity.

    Edit: And why don't you simply join our forum, that way we could put something of a face to a name.
