Hair: Gloin and Kili

I've found myself comparing Gloin's hair with Kili's -- the latter having caused quite a stir; the former, barely a murmur. Yet how different are they really?

Both dwarves seem to like their hair long, and they like to wear it loose. By 2011 standards, Gloin's hair doesn't look especially 'attractive', although, if these movies were being made during a 'big hair' era (somewhere between the bouffant '60s, through the Bee Gees '70s into the new-romantic '80s), I wonder whether some might consider it to be too 'straight out of the salon', much in the way that some are saying about Kili's hair now (not helped by the breeze-teased look in the only photo we have).

I appreciate that Gloin has a lot more classic-dwarf about him due to prosthetics and general build, but, just to focus on the hair, how substantial is the difference between Gloin and Kili really? Gloin is Barry Gibb, Kili is Jennifer Aniston -- but then, if Jennifer Aniston had been a celebrity during the '60's or '70s, she'd have probably been Barry Gibb, too.

(Here's the 'dwarves so far' image posted earlier to aid comparison: http://i51.tinypic.com/2nlbt3s.jpg.)

Don't know really where I was going with this -- only to wonder out loud why Kili's hair has caused much more noise than the no-noise that Gloin's caused, other than being viewed by our 'standards of the day' eyes.
