Is there a difference in the obligation for a married women to cover her hair in front of a non-jewish man? If you were on holiday in a place where there were no Jews would you be allowed to have your hair not covered?

The prohibition for a married woman to go out with her head uncovered is distinct from the issue of a woman’s hair being erva. It thus remains in place even when the considerations of erva might shift, as in the presence only of non-Jewish males. (See more here.)

One could argue that a woman could choose to be more lenient than her regular practice within the home when a non-Jewish male is present. (See more here.)
