Every restaurant has its own requirements for uniforms, but a few standards are consistent, no matter the employment: clothing must be free of stains, tears and holes, and must be of an appropriate length, with nothing fitting too tight. Shoes must be color coordinated and have good grips on the soles.
Hair has to be relatively secured at all times. This can mean that kitchen staff must wear hair nets or hats, and servers must have ponytails and trimmed hairstyles. No matter what, hair must be clean and out of the way – and away from food. Facial hair must also look freshly groomed, not only for the sake of appearance but also for hygiene.
