Face? I don't know.

Can you please give some links to where you have read that a person's face has been 'stroked'?
I have had my face stroked, thus my comment. It's disgusting.

As to hair and collars...the collar doesn't bother me so much but it is still pointless on some shirts, yet they do it anyway. The hair thing does bother me, especially when you have leering male TSOs standing around watching.
