At what age were young ladies allowed to put their hair "up"? Was it when you came out? In the latter part of the 1800s, it was considered a big deal to be able to do so because it signified adulthood. Was this not so important during the Regency? I recall seeing one of the Gardiner's daughters with her hair in a bun, but Margaret wore hers down. Anyone?
