I had a very good friend who's religion required her to have very long hair, but the part that confused me was that she had to keep it in a bun. I'm NOT knocking it, I just never knew why she had tol. One time she was able to take it down and let me see it and my jaw hit the floor. It was so beautiful, it had these natural waves and curls, and it was so healthy! Sorry, going off in another direction again... icon_redface.gif

beckyw321 you just cracked me up! What you were saying about the cashier was killing me. You have to wonder if some of these people have mirrors at home. I mean, what some people think is sexy is so scary.

yeah I can laugh about it now, too.. the nightmares have stopped finally...
but she wasnt trying to be sexy I dont think, this wasnt some young chickie with low rise jeans, but a grown woman in her fourties probably and well old enough to know better.

Ok... that's the part of the story that I gently left out. icon_lol.gif It was part way down when I pulled it, and I was not able to even get into a standing position before I started to vomit. Sorry to anyone who really didn't want to hear that. icon_redface.gif I was being polite when I said I tried to make it to the bathroom but didn't make it.

I have also had issues with arm hairs or eye lashes being in food that was prepared by my staff. No hair is too short. We use skull caps and mushroom style chef hats.

I make a pony tail, very short, but pony tail then I put hair spray, and some times a hair net or a handkerchief like the ones The Cake Divas wear, BTW, that is the only thing I have from a Diva! icon_lol.gif I HATE hairs!! I got it from my mom and my grandma, every single time I was in the kitchen I HAD to wear a hair net, I mean, when we were cooking large amounts of food like for Christmas or parties.
During my 2nd. pregnancy, I never vomited, but once, when I found a hair on a french fry from Burger King. I stopped eating from there for a looooooooooooooooooooong time.

And then there was a girl I worked with who had hair in her cleavage!

And she was very proud of it. I think it was a cultural thing.

My hair is that long for religious reasons. I also keep it in a bun most of the time also. My hair is healthy. Keeping it in a bun actually helps keep it healthier and to keep from shedding as much. It has never been cut in my life. I'm only 28 so I'm not sure I want to look 15 years younger.

Oh man, yes, it does tend to keep it healthier! I am a lover of long locks but mine has gotten so thin! My surgeries have made it fall out pretty badly. I hate it.

I have real long hair too - to my waist - and I never knew so many other decorators had long hair. It made me smile icon_smile.gif
Of course, I've been meaning to cut it for quite some time. I keep moving back my hair appointments - I'm scarred!! lol
Since my hair is dark, I notice if a hair gets on the counter or in anything. That is one of the upsides of dark hair. (down side - white tile in the bathroom. Grrr)

I can't stand even seeing a hair by food...let alone have one in my food...here's my worst nightmare come true and my reason for never visiting IHop again...at least the one in my town anyways:


My daughters and I were out for our monthly "girly day". We had decided on IHOP for our lunch that day. As we sat happily munching on our food we hear this from the other side of the restaurant, coming from the kitchen; "Can I get a new plate here? This one has a big wad of hair in it!!"

We got up and left....OMG......we were not the only people in the place either....no one could have missed that conversation, unless they were deaf!!!

Maybe Gordon Ramsey should pay them a visit??? icon_razz.gif

I am the one with the hair halfway down her calf. I am also 5'7". I keep my hair long for religous purposes. I also think that it makes me look slimmer. My hair is VERY healthy. I wash it EVERY day and of course I brush it out multiple times a day. I haven't touched scissors to my hair in over 14 years. It has grown over 18" in the last 3 years. I am only 24 so I don't want o look like I'm 9. Besides I don't think that haircuts make people look younger anyway. Just my opinion but I am entitled to it.

icon_eek.gif I prefer Cashew butter to peanut butter (long story) but anyway:
Last year while making my daughter's sandwich, I stirred up a new jar and noticed a short black hair. Gross, right? First I thought may it was my husband's. I removed it and out of curiosity stirred it again. Then I found a WAD of hair. After speaking with the health food store I bought it at, it was determined it was RAT hair. (Not sure which is worse). Anyway, then they showed me a government form stating how much animal hair, insects, etc is allowed to be in food... it's better not to think about it.... BIG factories, lots of "things" and people... I emailed the company... never heard back. icon_mad.gif I'll stop now. icon_redface.gif

icon_cry.gif I sometimes miss my long hair. When I was pregnant my hair was so radiant (hormones I suppose). It's still very healthy, but it was too much work when my daughter turned 2 1/2, and I was sick of only 2 options (ponytail, or barrett). Also, my hair is very SLICK and shiny, so it is difficult to keep in a barrette, etc. icon_cry.gif

Wait - the government has regulations as to how much rodent hair is ALLOWED in food? As in, the Peanut butter company that ripped you off was legal?

Wow. Learn something new everyday.

And K2cakes - I feel your pain with the hair slipping out of bands and barettes thing. I have to use the ridged hairties and two or three at that to hold my hair in place. just one of life's little annoyances

Oh no, you didn't know that. There is also if I remember correctly a legal amount of rat crap in ice cream, etc. That's why it's better to either not think about it, or grow your own food!

Honestly, there is a legal limit, but that refers to little hairs and turds getting 'processed' into it, I don't think an actual wad of hair is covered under that. I think that would go well over the legal limit!! You poor thing. I'd have been wretching so hard!

I can't imagine if a customer complained pulling the 'legal amount of hair' clause out...

Last year a friend of mine bought a bag of store brand frozen fruit from a national chain. She made herself a smoothie with it and started drinking it and something got stuck in the end of her straw. She thought it was fruit that wasn't blended properly and lifted the straw out and it was the end of a finger!!!!! So she called the 800 number on the bag and they told her she could return it to the store for a refund!! They gave her back her $4! *gag*

I am hair stylist by day and cake decorater by night. My hair is past my shoulders but above my bra strap. Red and curly! I definitely pull it up in a pony tail and put on a head bead! I dont like my own hair in my food i am sure no one else wants it!! I also change all my clothes and sometimes take a shower before doing a cake. You cant imagine the places i have found other peoples hair after a hard day at the salon! EWW! One of my clients said i should open a salon and bakery and call it Hair And Cake. Obvioulsy joking! I think it should be called Cake in Hair! I seem to be always making sure there is no hair hanging down that i push it back and there is always frosting in my hair.

Totally off the hair thing but I bought a bag of frozen strawberries and there was a metal washer (2) in them. Makes you wonder what else we have ingested. I also went to a Bob Evans and ordered a salad before and it was FULL of bugs..... so GROSS. That was probably 8 years ago though.

I didn't threaten them or mention the legal limit, because I really didn't think that was going to help the situation ~ and tried to be diplomatic thinking that would make them want to get back to me. (vinagar vs honey theory). I guess I was just disgusted that no one bothered. I even gave them the name and address of the store I bought it from... most of the employees are my friends. Then I just gave up.
It just goes to show you, nothing is as it seems.

Needless to say, I still can't eat either PB or CB... I can "accept" that tiny particles are in food, but we shouldn't have to see them or chew on them. Thankfully I hadn't eaten any when I found the hair. tapedshut.gif

She asks me why
I'm just a hairy guy
I'm hairy noon and night
Hair that's a fright
I'm hairy high and low
Don't ask me why
Don't know
It's not for lack of break
Like the Grateful Dead
Darling

Gimme head with hair
Long beautiful hair
Shining, gleaming,
Streaming, flaxen, waxen

Give me down to there hair
Shoulder length or longer
Here baby, there mama
Everywhere daddy daddy

Hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair
Flow it, show it
Long as God can grow it
My hair

Let it fly in the breeze
And get caught in the trees
Give a home to the fleas in my hair
A home for fleas
A hive for bees
A nest for birds
There ain't no words
For the beauty, the splendor, the wonder
Of my...

Hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair
Flow it, show it
Long as God can grow it
My hair

I want it long, straight, curly, fuzzy
Snaggy, shaggy, ratty, matty
Oily, greasy, fleecy
Shining, gleaming, streaming
Flaxen, waxen
Knotted, polka-dotted
Twisted, beaded, braided
Powdered, flowered, and confettied
Bangled, tangled, spangled, and spaghettied!

Oh say can you see
My eyes if you can
Then my hair's too short

Down to here
Down to there
Down to where
It stops by itself

They'll be ga ga at the go go
When they see me in my toga
My toga made of blond
Brilliantined
Biblical hair

My hair like Jesus wore it
Hallelujah I adore it
Hallelujah Mary loved her son
Why don't my mother love me?

Hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair
Flow it, show it
Long as God can grow it
My hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair
Flow it, show it
Long as God can grow it
My hair

I have long hair & tie it back in a ponytail or bun, and after that, I take a Scoth lint roller and run it along my shoulders & clothing, just in case their is a loose hair. I use those things about 5x a day!

When I had long hair, I did the ponytail and hairspray bit. Now with short hair, I spray it and pull it back in a triangular scarf.

I shed like crazy. I have long thick curly hair. Not even going to comment on the color since I change it all the time. icon_lol.gif
I first make sure my hair is pulled up in a pony tail and the my bangs are pinned back and then I hair spray it. Put on a clean black ball cap I use only when baking. Then once the ponytail is through the opening I change it into a bun that is tightly formed and spray that.
Put on my chef jacket and then take a lint roller brush all over it to make sure any loose hairs are not on it from the laundry.
I then ask someone to look to make sure there is no hair on me. Then I get to work.

go ahead and buy one. I like culinary classics to buy from. Good quality. I have lesser quality ones that I use also.
They are meant to protect the body while cooking/baking as well as the clothes. I have no issue with people wearing them when they are in the kitchen. In fact, I prefer people do for safety.
Also, if you need to make a delivery have a chef jacket only for that purpose. I have one that I keep pressed and hanging in my closet for when I use to deliver pastries, but know it is for ACF events. It looks professional and helps to be remembered as well as be taken seriously.
Go get yourself one. They come in lots of colors. I personally prefer white because the color stands for cleanliness.
