Sikhism believes that hair is the part of created human. Therefore, cutting hair from any part of the body, both for male and female mean altering the way God created us, therefore Sikh men don’t cut their beard.

The Kesh or unshorn long hair is an indispensible part of the human body as created by Vaheguru that is the mainstay of the ‘Jivan Jaach’ and the Rehni that was prescribed by Guru Gobind Singh Sahib by which a Sikh is clearly and quickly identified, Kesh.

The kanga, another requisite of faith is usually tucked behind the “Rishi Knot” and tied under the turban. The uncut long head hair and the beard in the case of men forms the main kakar for the Sikhs.
