One of my biggest pet peeves is people serving public kitchens without pulling back their hair. Staff should at least wear covers because those strays are just waiting for an opportune moment to fall in the food. Maybe that’s melodramatic but you understand the point I’m stressing so below is a myriad of pictures for hairstyles that I’ve worn in the kitchen that not only keep hair out of food, are stylish & fun!

All of the hair do’s take 10 minutes or less and can be covered with hat or invisible hair net. Make sure your pins are secure and wont fall out, these styles hold very well.

Minnie Mouse – When I wear my hair bow I get stopped on the street by women and often straight men, they all want to know how. Pull hair back tightly where bow is desired, using elastic, tie up hair into pony tail but on the final pull through create a small loop with all of your hair by not pulling it all of the way through the tie. Leave the tail ends of your pony tail facing forward towards your forehead. With the loop; separate hair into 2 even loops, these will be the “ribbon” of your bow, pull them down towards your head and loosen them to the desired bow size you want. Pull the tail ends over the part to create the center “ribbon” neatly and securely pin behind bow. pin down each side “ribbon” to ensure it stays in place. Hairspray. My bow is large because my hair is quite long.

Crop Circle:Start french braid at one ear and rotate around head 360 degrees until all of the hair is braided with one long braid protruding and tied with elastic. Securely pin in a circle with ends pinned into the center.
