its always interesting to decipher whether there's meaning behind something as little as this. I feel like there's more to it. But can also understand the aesthetic reason. DAMN YOU ANNO!!!

There is one Eva that has hair all the time: (Type Beta, sadly only appears in a game and thus isnt canon)

It adds to the assertion that it could be hair though! better than anything i can think of. I always assumed they didn't have any reason to have hair. Certainly doesn't seem beneficial for combat.

It is indeed hair. The Evas seem to be hairless by default, same as Adam and Lilith are. I guess the implication is that Eva-01 changes in some way once she ascends to super-godhood and leaves Earth. Interesting to note that when she powers down her ATF, she "petrifies" -- it looks like she turns to stone. But clearly not in any complete or permanent sense, since later on the armor is purple with some gray patches. My best guess here is that there is a sort of cocoon motif in play here. The armor is going to turn to "stone" and be shed to reveal, little by little, Eva-01's post-Earth form. Too bad the last shot of Eva-01 wasn't a fully unarmored and transfigured being.

Quite frankly, a lot of things about the armor designs are not that beneficial for combat.

But historically, long hair on males was generally associated with people from the higher classes in general and warriors in particular even if they did not have it open when facing combat for reasons obvious, so there might be something about Evas being higher beings or their purpose of fighting, if you really want to see a connection there
