Default Group Discussion #2 Hats, hairnets, both or none?

Open discussion here. No poll.

Do you wear a hat when handling or serving food?
Do you wear a hairnet?
What are your practices and thoughts?

Hair gets tied back and I usually throw a bandana on. I am sure that a hair net is better, but..........

Hat. Hairnets are for.... fast food chain teenage employees. they make beard nets too. For those in the trade (I'm not anymore)--ever notice how a customer never finds the hair till the last bite or spoonful?

I'd need a hairnet the size of a sleeping bag. I'm a seriously furry dude.

I don't wear a hat in the house, that's something you just don't do where and how I was raised.

My hair is short, I don't wear a hat unless it is hot/sunny. I do wear a durag on the weekends while cooking. To be honest more from forgetting to take it off in the AM then anything else, the family has yet to find a hair, I never gave it much thought.

H.I.G. Clearly states that hair must be restrained.
It's kind of a gray issue. Alot depends upon your personal inspector.
But for obvious reasons, we want to keep our hair out of the food.
Besides nothing is more embarressing than someone pointing out a hair in the food.
I have often wondered if it wasn't one of their own, or another party at the table. But having your hair restrained helps alleviate the question.

I never wear a hair net at home and very rarely a hat unless I'm outdoors. never think about it at home as my hair is very short.

However, for a period when I worked in the kitchen of a corporate kitchen/cafeteria I had something on my head for the entire.

The law is clear in Canada ... either hat or hairnet is required for safe foodservice. A health inspector can shut down a caterer for any violation.
