Longstanding biblical and fairytale symbolism equates hair with masculine power or energy. The story of Samson who lost his power when Delilah cut off his hair is a well known example.
When associated with the head, hair can reflect intellectual processes; the projection of unconscious thoughts or fantasies. In some cases it may represent someone you know who is particularly hairy, or even (as a dream pun) someone named “Harry”.
The condition, body location, and color of the hair may provide additional clues. If the hair is on an animal, see animals.
