Short hair has been a thing for a men in a majority of western cultures for a very, very long time. Now the times are changing and we can see that women have short hairs too and men tend to grow their hairs in some cases. Just I read somewhere that long hairs would be a disadvantage in case of wars, so men in max cases preferred short hairs.
In very cold regions, beards are more common where men might have been outdoors fishing in snow. In hot regions, men might have been outdoors in the brunt of the sun farming and carrying objects and would have wanted to cut it short to stay cool. Women might have been indoors in the shade and so their hair might have not have affected their internal body temperatures as greatly.
Now as the times are changing, We see greater balance between both genders.

It is not regarding the gender equality but basing on custom and tradition. According to Hindu culture women will have their beauty shining with long hairs. It was treated as a boon having a long hair. Men having short hair were differentiated from the long haired women. God has created the human beings with certain structures to have a difference among themselves. His creation cannot be questionable. He is the ultimate. But now men and women are going against his creation and think themselves as their own creators. It reflects ones culture. You cannot go against nature. Nature is the ultimate creator. If you go against to it and do something for the time being it may be good but at a long range you may have to pay for that and already we are experiencing the same in so many aspects.
