Anybody know what ざんばら髪 refers to? Some quick googling around makes me think it might mean the hair is loose or something like that.

Thanks!

Loose hair, yep. Contrasted with hair up in a "mage" (topknot thing from traditional hairstyles).
「ばらばらに乱れた髪。さんばらがみ。もと、元結(もとゆい)が切れて髷(まげ)が崩れたさまをいう。」 (from 明鏡国語辞典)
