Both of these things — they long hair and the painted faces — are meant to represent wildness and savagery.  The boys have been moving towards savagery and away from civilization as their time on the island has continued.  They will get much worse, of course, but the title of this chapter is meant to show that they are going in that direction.You can see this in this chapter, for example, in the place where Roger destroys the sand castles that the littleuns made and where he throws rocks at Henry (he doesn’t hit Henry, showing he’s not all the way savage).
