Hi there!

The length of the hair is unrelated to baldness or alopecia. Aside the male pattern baldness, alopecia could occur secondary to a few causes such as cellulites, fungal infections, hormonal imbalance, hypervitaminosis A, some autoimmune diseases such as lupus, medications side effect, infection, folliculitis etc. A this stage I would suggest consulting a primary care physician or a dermatologist for an evaluation to rule out the above mentioned causes and appropriate treatment.
Hope this helps.

Take care!
