I once walked through Miami airport and beeped.  No jewelry, no metal -- they 
ran the wand over me and it beeped on my head!  apparently my hair clips were 
too metalic.  I had to let down my hair and show there was nothing there but 
the clips.  

Battle cry of the Pettycoat Brigade -- Don't Touch My Hair!

I was miffed the whole flight about not being  able to fix my hair.  I now 
carry a comb to the airport.
