The hospitals in the area here have a policy for all clinical staff and Docs... Hair must not be long enough to fall past the chin when leaning forward, or must be pulled back. While I... Read More

    Mine's short, has been except for two occasions in my life, one in high school, and one after the third child was born. Both times, I thought I needed an image change. It didn't work, and I'm back to short hair, wash and go. I will admit to having colour enhancements. I need them!!!!!

    WOW... two hours to twist and finger curl a spiral perm? That's a long time to be doing your hair! And that q90day thing... I bet you were glad to get it cut!

    My hair is super straight and all one length except for bangs. It's down to the middle of my back right now, although the length varies from shoulder to waist. My hair grows really fast.

    I don't ever blow dry it. Just wash it and comb it, and then off to work! It's usually still damp when I get there (30 minute drive) but no one cares and neither do I.

    As far as pulling it up in an urgent situation, it takes about 5 seconds for me to pull my scrunchie out of my pocket and wrap it around my hair twice, then go. (I do this while running for the crash cart...)

    But as many have said, wear it like you like it... as long as your patients are cared for properly and aren't having your hair in their wounds, incisions, food, etc., no one should care.

    clip it all up on top of the head then pull out 1/8 to 1/2 inch strand, wipe dry with a towel, stroke on a bit of gel from root to end then wrap the strand around finger into a corkscrew...

    My head feels SO good now, and I get alot more sleep.

    My hair is long and very thick/naturally curly...like Carol Hathaway or Elizabeth Corday on ER.

    I almost always just pull the top part back into a clip, and leave the rest of it down. It tends to stay back behind my shoulders, and not hang into things...even while doing CPR.

    Well, I think that if you just check my Avatar, I do not share your problem Once a long, long, long, long, time ago I did, no kidding I really did I will try to get a picture to show how I looked before beginning on my twenty-nine year journey as an R.N. Alas, I fear that if nursing wannabe's and students see this they may be frightened away, after all if my avatar is any indication when compared with my nursing student picture, many women might say "I don't think I want a career that does that to me" Anyway, had fun posting this:imbar
