Noticed some recent activity on this thread and I wanted to pop in and provide some clarification to make sure ya’ll know we’re listening!
The reason Zwift has yet to add longer hairstyle options for avatars is simply due to graphical limitations. Notice that all hairstyles are above the shoulders? This is because certain hairstyles become impossible to render without visual issue. Since hairstyles don’t allow a lot of wiggle room for animation (think a helmet made of hair), any styles below the shoulders would just clip through the avatars and appear severely broken. Rather than having a bunch of rogue braids and ponytails attached to torsos, we opted to keep hairstyles to a certain length for now.
While I understand this may not be the answer many of ya’ll were searching for, I hope this clarifies the limitation with the current hairstyles in game, and let’s ya’ll know your requests are being heard and discussed
