That’s why Hiashi, Hanabi and Neji had long hair and Hinata didn’t. That’s why Hinata had short hair. Because she was considered unworthy, lowlife, she was rejected by her clan and family. It had nothing to do with her crush on Naruto. The signification of Hinata’s short hair was much deeper and complicated than that of a romantic crush. I had to clarify this, because the first post is everywhere and it’s completely untrue.
