At the end of the first season, youngest daughter Lady Sybil Crawley is paraded out in London during "the season" as a young woman ready for marriage. For women in the Edwardian period, this status was marked by pinning your hair up at 18. Before that age you wore your hair down as a sign that you're still a girl, but after 18 you're never to be seen in public with your hair down.
