Bipedalism exposes less surface area to the sun.
The body temperature becomes easier to regulate.
I believe body temp. is more important than throwing rocks
or carrying intestines full of water.
I suggest cultures that wore tight coverings regularly
caused the evolution of baldness.
Hair is used to sense movement of one's medium( air and water currents).
If the suface of the body does not interact with the medium
there is little use for hair.
