Word Geek – let your hair down
This month Word Geek looks into the phrase ‘let your hair down’ which is commonly understood to mean to relax, let go and have fun. It is said that the phrase originates from the 17th century when it was common for women to wear their hair pinned up during the day and when in company. They would only take their hair down to wash or brush it which was done in the privacy of their own home when they could relax. There is a clear connection between the uses of the phrase in today’s world where, as well as a symbolic idiom for relaxing and letting go, it alludes to being less formal.
