: Obviously, such labels are subjective and what defines them shifts with time. But those who hold the same kinds of positions that were considered 'liberal' then are considered 'conservative' now. Now regarding Reagan, I'm not sure I agree or disagree with you.
I would mention that Reagan would never get elected in this
republican party, it's gone much farther right. He broke two of the cardinal rules for the republicans, he 1. raised taxes. and 2. he granted "amnesty" to illegal immigrants. (that second one killed the
candidacy of Kasich and Rubio.)
To bring this back on the topic of hair, Trump ran a campaign
that channeled George Wallace who famously railed often
against long haired men.
