A longer-haired-lady's lament

My hair is only about two inches longer than it was a year and a half ago, yet my shel rosh (head tefillin) now slides all over the place.  It didn't slide when I had shorter hair.  Sigh.  Now I understand why some Chassidic men cut the hair on the top of their heads extremely short.

Modern Orthodox men wear tfilin as often as Chasidim; wouldn't they have the same problem?

Tesyaa, if their hair is as short as, or shorter than, mine was, they probably wouldn't have a problem, just as I didn't a problem when my hair was shorter. I guess the Chassidim are just being extra cautious.
