Women who are leading characters in films and on TV appear with the long hairstyles of the 2000s even when it’s not practical.
We see excellently trained women, and special operatives, fight hand-to-hand combat and wear their hair in long, flowing tresses, but no opponent yanks them around by the hair.
In the same vein, women detectives with long hair – it’s not safe, practical, etc.
In addition, medical examiners and female detectives examine dead bodies and crime scenes but never consider that they might soil their hair or contaminate the scene.
The above also applies to men’s ties.
Wardrobe folks: Have the men tuck their ties between the buttons of their shirts. Thanks.
