To act in a natural way, revealing ones real self, to behave in a free and relaxing manner


  • The expression originated in the 19th century and became very common. In those days those women who used to have long hair, used to set them using different pins when they had to go in public or when they were out. They only let their hair down when they were in their homes and when they had to go to bed. Today the expression refers to relax you and just be yourself.

After hectic working hours in the office, everybody planned to have a party so that they can just let their hair down.
