A flight attendant has revealed a rule all cabin crew must follow with their grooming.

Chelsea Dorricott, from Sydney, is a Virgin flight attendant and recently shared the ‘grooming requirements’ all cabin crew are expected to abide by.

Flight attendants cannot have any visible facial piercings or jewellery on their lips, nose, or eyebrows.

Ear piercings are allowed but they need to be simple and understated, with most airlines encouraging a simple stud or a small pearl.

The 29-year-old also revealed that she has to take off her ear cartilage piercing every day for work and change out her usual gold hoop earrings.

Chelsea shared a short clip listing the regulations.

‘As cabin crew, we do have a set of grooming requirements we need to adhere to,’ the flight attendant revealed.

‘I’m sure every airline will have a slightly different version of these,’ she said. ‘But, for mine specifically, we can’t have any facial piercings – lip, nose, eyebrows – anything on your face is a big no-no.’

She described the rules for what ear piercings were allowed. 

‘If you have two piercings in each lobe, they need to be two of the same – such as small studs – and hoop earrings are not allowed either.

Travellers have also recently discovered a hidden detail in the Virgin Australia staff uniforms. 

The cherry red uniforms might seem identical at first, but there’s a glaring difference between those worn by flight attendants and guest services agents.

Flight attendants wear a lilac and deep purple neck scarf along with a winged pin, whereas ground staff wear a purple and red neck scarf and do not have a specialised pin.

While millions fly the airline everyday, many weren’t aware of the subtle difference in the uniforms.

Virgin staff recently shared a video revealing the differences and debunked common myths.

‘Have you noticed the difference between our red uniforms?’ the video was captioned.

The clip showed close ups of two Virgin Airlines staff members – one of which sported a shiny lapel pin.

‘Flight attendants wear a neck scarf and a winged pin – but guest service agents wear a different patterned neck scarf and don’t have a winged pin,’ they revealed.

Many were stunned they hadn’t noticed the little detail before the video.

‘Wow, my cousin flies for Virgin and I never knew!’ a woman said.

‘Lovely uniforms – a very beautiful red,’ said another frequent flyer.

‘This is very helpful, I’m going to keep an eye out for the winged pins,’ wrote a third. 

Previously, a flight attendant has dismissed rumours that airplane water is ‘unsafe to drink’ in epic video which answers the top questions she asked about air travel. 

Virgin Australia flight attendant Brodie Capron has been in the business for over two years now and revealed that passengers frequently ask her several air travel-related questions.

Brodie claimed passengers always wonder whether airplane water is safe to drink and why window shades need to be up for takeoff and landing.

She was happy to reveal all the secrets from her job to satisfy the public’s curiosity. 

The VA air hostess shared a video answering popular questions, including where toilet waste really goes, whether aircraft doors can be opened mid-flight, and why you feel drunker while in the air.

Is airplane water safe to drink?

The safety of aircraft water is a widely debated topic – with many warning against consuming anything that doesn’t come out of a sealed bottle.

But Brodie, who works at Virgin Airlines, revealed that the water is completely safe to drink – at least on her flights. 

‘It’s clean and filtered,’ she said in a video.

Why do window shades need to be up for take off and landing?

Take off and landing are the riskiest stages of every flight – and having the window shades down will get your eyes used to the natural light outside in case of an emergency.

People will be able to react to dangerous situations more quickly if their vision is at its strongest – and this is also the reason lights are dimmed during those times.

Brodie also revealed another reason it’s important to have window shades up. 

‘It’s so that everyone can see the engines and warn the cabin crew if something is wrong,’ she said. 

What happens to waste from toilets?

Many often wonder if waste is simply released from the airplane when it’s flying over the ocean – but this is not true.

‘It does not just go into the sky,’ the flight attendant said. ‘Bodily discharge goes into a sewage tank which gets emptied upon landing.’

Why do I need to put my oxygen mask on before helping others?

Parents often scramble to get their children’s masks on before worrying about themselves.

But the Virgin Airlines flight attendant warned against such a practice because it could have fatal results and prevent you from assisting anyone else in need. 

‘You need to put your mask on before you help others because you wont be very useful if you don’t have oxygen on yourself,’ she said.

Why do carry-ons have a specific weight limit? 

The overhead lockers in which carry-on suitcases are stored have a specific weight limit to prevent the cabin from rupturing.

Space inside an airplane is also limited, which is why airlines have dimension requirements for all carry-on luggage.  

Do you get drunk quicker on airplanes? 

Many passengers enjoy a glass or two of red wine on planes – especially when they’re catching a long flight.

But people often find that their alcohol tolerance seems to plummet in the air – and never understood how that could be possible.

‘Yes, you get drunk quicker on airplanes!’ Brodie said, answering the age-old question. ‘This happens because the low oxygen percentage in the air causes the effects of alcohol to be greater.’

The air hostess shared a video answering questions, including where toilet waste really goes, whether aircraft doors can be opened mid-flight, and why you feel drunker while in the air

Thousands thanked Brodie for sharing her knowledge.

‘This is actually so interesting!’ one woman said. 

‘She’s definitely not wrong about the alcohol – I have one glass of wine and can’t walk off the plane.’

‘I didn’t know the one about the window shades, thank you for sharing!’

‘It blows my mind that some people think when you go to the toilet it just drops out of the sky – maybe this will answer their questions.’
