    It was because he was violating the Mormon Dress code as enunciated by the prophet at the time.    Long hair and beards are a "sign of rebellion".   The dress code still applies although it is somewhat relaxed.

    “Grooming should be in keeping with these guidelines, emphasizing cleanliness and avoidance of dress or manner which calls attention to itself and symbolizes either rebellion or nonconformity with the values of modesty, humility, decency and propriety.” (New Era, September 1971, p. 18.)
    I believe it was even more restrictive back in the 60's.

    This reminds me of the Amish guy who assaulted other Amish by cutting their hair.
