How come St. Paul the apostle says that males should not have long hair, but we see in the icons that Jesus Christ had long hair and also the monks (I think) do not cut their hair as a sign of asceticism?

Our Lord Jesus Christ lived His life as a Nazarite. Some monks leave their hair to grow, while others do cut it.
