Din dicționarul THE DEVIL'S DICTIONARY ((C)1911 Released April 15 1993) :

  ROUNDHEAD, n.  A member of the Parliamentarian party in the English
  civil war -- so called from his habit of wearing his hair short,
  whereas his enemy, the Cavalier, wore his long.  There were other
  points of difference between them, but the fashion in hair was the
  fundamental cause of quarrel.  The Cavaliers were royalists because
  the king, an indolent fellow, found it more convenient to let his hair
  grow than to wash his neck.  This the Roundheads, who were mostly
  barbers and soap-boilers, deemed an injury to trade, and the royal
  neck was therefore the object of their particular indignation. 
  Descendants of the belligerents now wear their hair all alike, but the
  fires of animosity enkindled in that ancient strife smoulder to this
  day beneath the snows of British civility.
