Clergy and Monastic Skullets
« on: May 01, 2011, 02:46:40 PM »
Let's say someone is a member of the clergy in a group that usually wants their clergyman to have long hair/beards. If a member of the clergy in such a group is going bald, is he allowed to keep what hair he does have short and trimmed, or is he forced to have a skullet (or variant of a skullet)? Same question for monks...    and yes, I know I have strange questions.

As a hairdresser I find any form of mullet on anyone highly offensive. I would rather see them with a tonsure than a mullet.
