For safety reasons.

They told us that a part of our nursing uniform is to tie your hair back. It's not only a 'to look professional' rule, it's also a safety hazard. If you're in the mental health ward and a client yanks your hair, you're up craps creek without a paddle rocking a bald patch.

I'd been avoiding it .. even tried to say my Samoan heritage forbids me from it, until the other Samoan girl in the class tied hers back. So I cut about a foot off. I can still tie it back, so I'll get creative on myself during the weekend and keep snipping until I can't tie it back anymore, but still long enough to be comfortable.

I was imagining the post-haircut Tangled look.
I fear it's more a Dora the Explorer do.
Yeah, nah to the photo you're thinking about asking me for.
