Hair styles and Aural ID video submission

I noticed in the Aural ID example video for video submission that the people in the video had the sides of their head shaved.  I have what might be considered an "normal" short haircut for a male.  How much does a hair style affect the results of the photogrammetry?  Should I shave my head before recording the video to get the best possible results?

Hi There!

Long hair or beard only become issues when they start hindering visibility of the external ear and major head shapes. We give recommendations for preparing to video shoot in https://auralid.genelec.com/downloads/aural_id_user_manual-2019-05-14-v3.pdf and the main principle is that it is useful to collect long hair so that the external ear and head shapes become visible on the video.
