I’ve done some more research and to summarize, she might possibly wear her hair loose. Maybe. But it would be unusual, and impractical.
This is what I had thought was the case, which means I could get away with it possibly. xD But you’re absolutely right, in this scene she would and should definitely have her hair up in some kind of braid or bun style.
Speaking from personal experience, loose hair flies into your face, gets caught in things, and gets tangled and frizzy very easily, especially when you’re outside or doing anything active.
From the many times I have seen this happen to women, I would concur. 🙂
Thanks for the sources! I will definitely be watching some of videos on that snappydragon channel!
