Norman Conquest Encyclopedia
Anglo-Saxon and Viking people wore their hair long and were often bearded. The Norman fashion, adopted to some extent in England, was to shave the face and back of the neck and head and to wear the remaining hair of the head short. This was the style of 1066, but fifty years later the Normans had taken to the styles of their former adversaries.
