length of hairs & height have no relation at all,forget it & don`t trim /sacrifice your hairs for false belief about height .As your still 14 there are chances your height may increase.Start playing basket ball.A game known for helping in gaining height at your age. Disclaimer

Wecome to HealthcareMagic.Having long hair, does not allow you to grow tall is probably a falacy. And since you are just 14, so unless hereditary factors do not hinder, and you are having proper nutrition, you should be attaining your normal height, A short hair or long one hardly matters. So cheer up and you can take pride in your long hair.
