Are Long Haired Men Manly?

The ancient Hebrews seemed to think so, and so did other ancient Semites. Long hair on the head and long hair on the chin was considered a sign of manliness. The Nazarites took vows to not cut their hair, they believed it was beautiful. Men often grew their hair longer than the women did. Black hair was thought of as particularly beautiful and because long hair was so valued, as a sign of mourning men would shave it off. Beautiful hair… beautiful man… manly man… that was the belief.
