Originally Answered: Why do women generally have long hair?
Long hair is traditionally considered a symbol of good fertility. In the past, long hair was considered a pride for people and both men and women used to sport them. Only some men who indulge in heavy labor and where long hair is a hindrance in the work to be done were the manes shortened. This still happens in some cultures. The tradition of men cutting their hair short started very recently, probably around the end of the Victorian Era in England sometime in the early nineteenth century, from where it found its way across the world.

Speaking from style perspectives, long hair suits women in general because they have relatively small skull sizes. Longer hair helps give the head some balance, in terms of appearance. Also, it makes the head look bigger, and biologically speaking bigger heads are considered an evolutionary advantage.

In comparison, men who have larger heads and shorter hair do not do any harm to their appearance.

But there is no hard rule that women have to have long hair and men shorter hair. It is simply a social practice and everybody has the freedom to choose whatever hair they like. Source.
