does anyone wear hats while they bake or decorate? I usually pull my hair back but I constantly worry about my hair getting into the cake. I would be mortified!! We also talked to a health inspector about the possibility of making a commercial home kitchen in our basement. She said I would need to wear a hat or hair net. A hair net just seems too "lunch lady" for me.

So I was searching around for some chef hats and wondering if anyone could recommend a place. I am looking for something not really huge and poufy but maybe not the scull cap type either. Maybe just a medium or small pouf icon_biggrin.gif ! I have to believe there is someone out there with cute fabrics and styles. I would love to find some with cupcakes or something! I wish I could sew better. I would just make my own.

I looked for a cutesie style hat and couldnt find a thing! So I ended up wearing a bandana that I had and it is great! Keeps everything in place. It's funny cuz if I'm doing normal cooking in the kitchen I feel wierd cuz I'm not wearing it! icon_lol.gif
Sorry couldnt be more helpful!

Hey thanks, that is a good idea! I actually happened upon some cute stuff on that Etsy site (the handmade stuff site) I think they were considering it more for surgical or chemo, but I think they were awfully cute. Similar to a bandana type of thing with a tie in the back. I might buy one to see. Plus then I am supporting the handmade stuff.

I bought a lot of my culinary garb from www.allheartchefs.com - they have a lot of reasonably priced aprons, jackes, hats, etc.

Although, arguably, there is no such thing as a cute chef hat (the poufy hat thing? really annoying - had to wear them for culinary class - the only saving grace is that since everyone had to wear them, we ALL looked stupid LOL).

thanks for the tip on All Heart Chef site, I will pass that on to my daughter, I don't think she has ever heard of that site and maybe she can save some $$$ on her chef clothing.

if you're the only one in the kitchen, what's wrong with hairnets? You're not making a fashion statement. I have them. My 15 year old makes fun of me. I dont' care. (Just wait until I make HER wear one! hahahaha!!!)
