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.

    I'd agree that if her hair is short, it's not hanging.

    For longer hair, you might want to consider :

    1. She wore her hair loose.
    2. Her hair is/was flowing free. (or freely)


    Very short hair like a boy's, though? I would say a & c apply best, especially if you said :

    Her hair is short and free.
    Her hair is short and loose.
