Universal Landscape: Beauty; strength of persona.

Dreaming Lens: Was your own hair the focus of your dream? Was it someone else’s? Was it different from your natural hair? Was there a change in style or color? Were you losing hair? Gaining hair? Was the hair in your dream unconnected to someone’s head?

Personal Focus: At the most primal level, hair connects to beauty and to presenting personal attractiveness to the world. In popular culture and the media, changing hairstyles are a source of fascination and imbued with importance. In the mundane world, it is common for people to divide their experience into “good hair days” and “bad hair days.” For men, and some women, the loss of hair is often considered tragic and supremely disappointing. This lends credence to hair and hair loss as being directly linked to a sense of personal attractiveness and sexual vitality.

In general terms, hair is a feminine symbol and connects to strength and power as expressed by the feminine principle of creativity and receptivity. However, in Western mythology, the figure of Samson and his divine strength was directly connected to his long hair, the loss of which resulted in his ultimate demise. Therefore, Sampson’s strength was only accessible to him while his masculine body was integrated with the feminine principal as represented by his hair.

Another phenomenon to be examined where hair is concerned relates to coveting: those with curly hair wish they had straight hair and those with straight hair wish for curls. Since modern chemistry allows for alteration with alarming precision, the color of hair in dreams can hold powerful symbolic significance. Consider changes in color as connecting with an unconscious desire for a shift in expression in your outward persona. The color that shows up has meaning as well. Blonde hair is most coveted, but is also associated with a lack of intelligence. Intellect is the realm of the brunette. Red hair is correlated with passion and magic.

Given that hair is on the head, this symbol connects to thoughts, both conscious and unconscious. Dreaming of long hair can indicate thoughts based on a desire for beauty to be more fully expressed. Hair that is bound in some fashion might reflect unconscious feelings of constraint in the area of personal expression. Hair being cut, lost, or radically altered can point to the need for a shift in thoughts about attractiveness. A wig represents a desire to actively create a mode of expressiveness that is not organically your own.


General Meaning: Hair is a good picture of the image we present to the world.

It is amazing how much a person’s looks change simply by changing their hair.

Dreams Positive:

To dream that you are changing your hair is an indication that you are going through a change in your personal image.

• How you feel about this change in your dream will tell you if you are in conflict about this change or if you feel ready for it.

• To dream of having beautiful hair that you enjoy having means that you are feeling confident in who you are.

Negative: To dream that your hair is damaged, ruined or destroyed is a picture of a conflict you are going through.

• It could be that you are feeling insecure about your image at the moment. It could also be an indication of some insecurity that is coming up inside of you.

• Perhaps there are circumstances in your life that are bringing up old conflicts from the past, or situations where you are at a point of weakness and you feel vulnerable.

Visions Positive:

A woman’s hair is a picture of her covering. This speaks firstly of her husband, and then of any other spiritual covering that she is under.

• If you have a vision or prophetic dream of your hair growing, it speaks of the blessing you will walk in as you come under the covering of your husband or spiritual authority.

• 1 Corinthians 11:15 But if a woman has long hair, it is a honor to her: for her hair is given to her for a covering.

Negative: It was shameful for a man to have long hair in the Bible. He was seen as rejecting his masculinity.

The same stigma remains even into today’s society.

• To have a prophetic dream or vision of having long hair, is an indication that you are failing to rise up as the head of your home.

• 1 Corinthians 11:14 Does not even nature itself teach you that if a man has long hair it is a shame to him? • As hair is also a picture of spiritual covering, if you as a man dream that you lose your hair, it is a picture of not being under authority.

Baldness, Beard.

A symbol of wealth and fertility. In mythology, cutting off the hair is the equivalent of castration. Samson was robbed of his strength when Delilah cut off his locks. Hair for men is a sign of freedom; for women, long hair is a sign of femininity. According to Robert Bly, wild men and wild women are always covered with hair. Those who dream about “hairy” beings are on the way to satisfying their own nature, longing for vitality. This longing for “the wild energies” to be set free is clearly expressed in the musical Hair, which depicts the mythology of the sixties generation.

Today, hair often appears in dreams in connection with wanting to create a certain image, one that we would like to present to the outside world. It also may refer to “splitting hairs.”

According to an ancient Indian interpretation, hair that has been cut off means grief and sorrow.

Also, hair-dreams are thought to be about close relatives. And, in addition, they may mean spiritual and intellectual property.

According to Freud, hair, as a secondary sexual characteristic, has phallic meaning. Also, according to Freud and Steckel in The Language of Dreams, dreaming of hair means castration.

In mythology, hair and beards play an important role.

The chiefs of the Masai were afraid they would lose their supernatural powers when their hair or beards were cut.

For many primitive tribes, hair was considered taboo.

To be protected from danger means never getting your hair cut. Kings in Franconia (Germany) would lose their throne if they had their hair cut. Young warriors of Teutonic tribes could cut their hair and beard only after they had killed their first enemy. Hair, therefore, seems to mean power, strength, and magical vitality.

Folklore: Abundant hair means wealth; little or gray hair, troubles.


Long hair in dreams represents strength and beauty.

If your hair turns white in a dream, you have outgrown old ideas and you are ready to learn new things.

Brunette hair symbolizes loyalty. Red hair in dreams usually symbolizes changes in the dreamer’s life. Curly hair in dreams foretells that someone will try to seduce you.

A dream of straightening your hair means you are trying to change in some way, or surpress a part of your nature that you are uncomfortable with. It can also mean you have strong feelings for someone of the opposite sex.

To dream of hair falling out, means you will have to take care of yourself and not depend on others.

If you dream of having wet hair, or dream about washing your hair, you need to take a different approach towards some real-life situation or relationship. Frizzy hair symbolizes anxiety about some aspect of your personality. You may be feeling insecure, or remembering some old feelings that you had tried to forget.

To dream of someone pulling your hair means they are trying to connect with you in some way. It also refers to sympathy and protection.

To dream of getting hair extensions, symbolizes false impressions. You may be taking on other people’s ideas and opinions and trying to pass them off as your own. You must start being true to your own beliefs, and thinking for yourself.

Hair or hairstyle can represent: Personality, style, or the perceived role the person plays in your life.

The state of the person’s body, emotions, or mind (the way you perceive it).

A characteristic that reminds you of a certain person or something else your real life.

Something that’s “off” about a person’s hair (weird color, missing, too much, in the wrong places, etc.) may reflect a problem or situation you feel or fear that person having in real life (for example, being covered in hair could represent feeling overwhelmed or out of balance).

Pulling out your hair could represent frustration, or rejecting something about yourself or your situation.

Losing your hair can represent a feeling or fear of you, your life, or your identity being compromised or not being what you expect; a negative state of mind; a fear of vulnerability or lack.

Hair loss as part of the aging process could represent a particular time frame, or the idea of getting older or associated changes.

Hair color or other characteristics may provide clues to what the person represents (for example, gray hair representing older or experienced, or a short and neat haircut representing well-organized or conservative).

Trimming hair to make it neater can represent taking care of details in some area of your life.

Drastically cutting hair (such as shaving your head or cutting hair very short) can represent freedom or loss (such as of self-identity, femininity, or masculinity).

For more clues, consider your feelings about the hair and its characteristics.

Personal strength (as with Samson).

Long hair: Equates to the wisdom and sagacity that comes through a long, well-lived life, especially if the color is gray. Alternatively, prosperity. In Asia, long hair was so valuable that it was used as currency.

Cutting: Drastic life changes. Many religious orders mark initiation rites through the cutting of hair, notably of monks and nuns (see Religions).

Power: In Tantric Oriental traditions, undoing the hair was a way to access the forces of creation and destruction. Also, in European folklore it was believed that a witch could increase the power of her spell by letting down her hair during its casting (see Incantation).

Consider the texture and style for further symbolic clues.

For example, hair brought up in a very tight bun reveals someone who is prim, sometimes to the point of restrictiveness.

Baldness: Too much thought, or possibly a visual metaphor for “pulling your hair out.”

Being cut by a barber: x\ttention to details, and being meticulous in your efforts especially with regard to personal appearances.

Wigs: A false line of reasoning.


Symbol: Hair is considered a man’s finery and a woman’s veil.

Vision: A man getting a short haircut indicates his fear of subjugation and repression. Dreaming diat he has lost all his hair: fear of becoming impotent. Seeing himself with long hair: he wants more independence and freedom—from moral as well as sexual taboos. Dreaming about a woman with beautiful hair (dark or red): he wants to find a sexually vibrant partner.

For a woman dreaming of losing her hair: she is afraid of losing energy; she also might feel physically and mentally overextended. Dreaming about a haircut: fear of losing her good reputation and also a sign of repressed feelings of sexuality. Dreaming about unkempt hair: being sexually careless and unsafe. Carefully groomed hair: she is disciplined in sexual matters. Hair falling out: losses are imminent.

Depth Psychology: Dreaming about hair might point to sexual needs, or to sensuality in general. Are you trying to hide your tendency for “splitting hairs” or overemphasizing your intellect? Beard, underarm hair, or pubic hair always indicates sexual urges. Or are you facing “a hairy situation” right now?
