Hair

Hair is a protein filament that grows from follicles found in the dermis. Hair is one of the defining characteristics of mammals.
The human body, apart from areas of glabrous skin, is covered in follicles which produce thick terminal and fine vellus hair.

Well the rules for hijab are derived from Qur'an, hadith, and the deductions of scholars, and you can find the subject of hijab discussed elsewhere here.

However, I do want to point out that, in many Muslim cultures, the clothing that is traditionally considered respectful for men is loose and long-sleeved, and there is also often headwear. For instance, shaykhs/religious leaders of most groups of Muslims today often wear loose clothing and a turban or other headgear. And, it is often considered indecent or inappropriate for men to reveal themselves extensively unless it is under special circumstances like maybe some kinds of work. To my knowledge, it is only in the modern era that it became fashionable for Muslim men to wear super-tight jeans and so on.

Anyway just a couple thoughts, you can find a lot on the subject of hijab on this website.

In performing the ritual bathing (Ghusl), water must reach the skin only and not necessary to reach all the hair. Braided hair does not need to washed if the skin of its root is covered by water or wet.

Wassalam.

It is narrated that the Imams had shoulder-length hair (see the book Wahhabis' Fitna Exposed, which narrates a famous narration about Imam al-Ridha (as) when he was stopped on his way to Merv, and he pulled back the curtain on his howdah), but I am not aware of any particular fiqh that advises what is recommended.

Thank you for your question. There is no problem in a Muslim woman getting her hair treated by other women, whether they are Muslim or not, and there is no issue of shame in a woman's hair or body. For waxing and other types of hair removal treatment, the hair around the private parts of a woman should never be shown to any other women except for medical purposes, hair removal not being a medical purpose. 

May you always be successful

Yes, Quran is very clear in Hijab that hair , head and neck must be covered وليضربن بخمرهن على جيوبهن  ( Sura 24, verse 31).

We have also many authentic Hadeeths in this regard from the Prophet ( SAWA) and Ahlul Bayt (AS)
