    1 CORINTHIANS 11:3 BUT I WOULD HAVE YOU KNOW THAT THE HEAD OF EVERY MAN IS CHRIST AND THE HEAD OF THE WOMAN IS THE MAN --- AND THE HEAD OF CHRIST IS GOD --- 1 TIMOTHY 4:7 BUT REFUSE PROFANE AND OLD WIVES FABLES AND EXERCISE THYSELF RATHER UNTO GODLINESS

The hair should cover her head,which is about to the jawline for the head to be covered, bangs would not be involved. No where does it say it is a sin to cut a woman's hair. Scripture does not tell why it affects angels. V.10

    Julius, Your answer for "uncovered" is verse 15.(And if a woman does not have hair that is long enough to cover her head she should cover it with something else,when she prays because of angels in verse 10) "Cover" a man should not have hair long enough to cover his head, it dishonors his head, verse 4.
