Does political affiliation have something to do with haircut ?
See thread title. .
Little historical breakdown . .

Somehow , in the European world long hair had always been a fashion for males . .
Let' s start in heathen times . .
The ancient Germanic males already had long hair . .Some say it made them look wild and savage , that was their fashion anyways . .
To this day , that style is popular . .

. . over to Christian times. .
. . even during the Middle Ages ( an age supposedly 'more civilised' than the heathen times ) long hair was still a fashion among males . .
That more or less remained until about the 19th century . .
( the long hair in the 18th century were wigs , yet it was still a fashion to see males with it )
. . then , at about the turn to the 20th century , shorter hair became the fashion again with males in the West . .

How the National socialists viewed it . .
The National socialist era more or less followed the world of the 1920s . .
National socialists in general had short hair and didn't grow a beard ( some say for reasons of conformity ) . .
The role model of many national socialists though was the long haired Germanic warrior . .
The national socialists made some kind of compromise ( especially in the Wehrmacht ) . . One could have long hair , yet it had to be cut at a certain length . . In other words , one could have long wisps but cut at the neck . .
Like I said , the national socialists sure held the ancient Germanic warrior in high regard but I suppose to the outside world they especially had to display some kind of 'conformity' . .

The situation after the war . .
The first generation to display long hair again after the war were the 'hippies' . .
They , at least at that time , were considered 'left-wing' . .
Yet , during the 1970s long hair with Western males became the fashion again , dare I say it was pretty mainstream in the 70s . .

There were some people who viewed especially the long hair of the 'hippie' as a sign of anarchism . .
Concerning short hair . .
It is said that especially among the skinhead-cult popular among racialists , people shave their hair for reasons of conformity . .

What do you think . .?
There was a time when long hair with males was associated with being 'left' . .
During the 70s more or less a 'liberation' when it comes to hair-fashion set in . .
Like I said , during the 70s long hair with males somehow became fashion again . .
Today racialists display all hair cuts imaginable. People who embrace the skinhead-look to long-haired racialists who often idolize the 'ancient Germanic warrior'-look ..
Again . . what do you think . .?
Should certain hairstyles be associated with certain political 'sides' . .?
Or beard-styles ?
Sex was once a forbidden topic …. yet everyone had it on his /her mind . . today race is a forbidden topic . . . .
