When soneone forgets about the world and and gets absorbed in his studies -he doesnt care about his look and attire - this is how they bear long beard . Its not necessary that he must be a baba , a scienstist may have long beard ,an artist and a hermit too may have !

Olden days monks rarely had time to spare for a daily shave. Moreover, not shaving and not cutting hair was to conserve energy. When cut, for the re-growth of hair, extra energy is required. Since monks were having strict food discipline, conserving energy was a requirement. These facts cannot be compared to present day babas since they have both time and money.

No, it is not compulsorily. There are so many Babas without beard. For example Satya sai baba who died recently.
