Removing hair from cat's throat safely?

A weird question but: I just saw a very long human hair stick out of my cat's mouth so I carefully pulled it out. Is removing swallowed hair from a cat's mouth/throat(/stomach?) in this way safe to do? 

Update:

I'm aware that cats swallow a lot of hair and that it's usually not that big of a deal (though it can cause problems if it builds up). I still just want to know: did I possibly harm my cat in some way when I pulled that one long hair out?

    Leave it, it will pass naturally. They swallow foreign hair and their own hair all the time after washing themselves.
