So I'm in cosmetology school and we are told not to wear open-toed shoes b/c if a cut hair gets stuck in your skin (like a splinter) it will grow toward blood supply - even all the way to the bone!

One teacher says she actually saw this happen to a co-worker: she went to pick off a little piece of hair and it was like 2 inches long and grown into her foot!

Sounds feasible, I guess, but might be a load of crap. Can anyone provide a good explanation on this????

lol agreed sounds like bull. I wonder if it's true or not? maybe it's just their way to scare you into wearing closed in shoes for OH and S reasons?? LOL

BS for sure. No open toe shoes for OSHA regulations, yes. Wild, wicked hairs escaping into your blood stream............nahhhh.
