    loose

    If a woman's hair is not tied, in a chignon or in plaits, whether it be long or short, would you say:

    a-Her hair is free.
    b-Her hair is untied.
    c-Her hair is loose.
    d-Her hair is hanging free.
    e-Her hair is hanging loose.

    I suppose d and e could be used if the hair is long, but if the hair is short, I don't think 'hanging' would be appropriate.
