] I am taking a wild stab at this and surmising that a girl's hair went up when she came out, i.e. when she made her official entrance into society and was presented at court and/or a ball.
If P&P2 was acurate, then this might not be true during this period. At least one of the Gardiner children had her hair up and was certainly too young to be out. Another of the girls did have her hair down, though.
