0005119: Human NPCs always have "extremely long" hair
Tested across three worlds, with lots of human NPCs in towns. It appears they aren't caring of their hair. Probably they don't trim their nails either. I think it is supposed that each of them would take care of it.
Probable Quick Fix

Tested in another world, same problem. Even historical figures have extremely long hair.

That's mostly because only dwarven entities have hair styles in vanilla. I haven't tested it, but in all likelihood you'd see it if you gave dwarves cities as default sites.

Well, this would explain it. So it is less of a bug and more of an oversight.

Still happens in 0.40.01

Modest Mod fixes the problem, just in case anyone else wants to change it.
