Either she has some LONG hair, or she was way too close.
I used to work with a greasy, dirty, longhaired guy in the shop. The first time the boss made him wear it in a pony tail the kid wasn't very happy but even a South Bend can ruin your day if it pulls your head into the it.
That was also the same guy that would rust anything he touched. Any ground surface that wasn't heavily oiled would rust within hours of him touching it. He was pretty gross, come to think of it.
Have a chum that had a guy with a pony tail, and [somehow] it got caught in the lead screw on a small engine lathe and started winding him in.
Blows my mind, but it stalled the motor at the last second.
Had another lady near here that got a pony tail caught in a drill press (?) in the early 80's.
Scalped her, but she lived.
A fella that I bought a machine from, got his pony tail caught in the spinning tool of a HMC.
(presumably setting it up / touching off or whatnot)
Scalped and broke his neck.
I would MUCH rather have hair loose as all bundled up, but it should not be in the shop at all in either case.
Think Snow Eh!
