Why do neo-nazis have their hair cut so short? Or even shave it?

I know, they are called skinheads, but I was wondering what's up with that? Does it have a meaning?

  • I am not sure, but I think it came out of a need for a way to stand out at first sight... Things like tattoos and whatnot are to easy to cover, or not be seen, but the shaved head thing was (and still is) hard to miss, especially in prison, which I believe is where it started...

  • Same reason gang members wear certain colors. It's an identifying factor for a gang. And they really aren't a problem.

  • I thought it was because they considered themselves para-military, but I also think Stacy is right as well.
