Long hair priests

Plenty, although not all, Eastern Orthodox priests have long hair. Can our Oriental Orthodox priests have long hair like the Eastern Orthodox priests? A friend of mine told me that a Coptic priest told him they could. I was wondering if someone could verify.


  • yes, some monks have long hair.

    but you won't see it as they wear the kolonsowa (monastic head cover - I don't know the name in english).

    so if you want a priestly hair fashion show, don't hold your breath...


  • I know that some monks grow their hair. My question was specifically about local parish priests. And while I understand that you’re joking, I’m not interested in just aesthetics.
  • i don't know, i am a lady and so i am too shy to ask monks about their hair...
