There's a really specific reason Sansa wore her hair down in the 'Game of Thrones' finale
Character development in the final season of Game of Thrones has been the subject of much controversy.
While many took umbrage with Daenerys becoming the Mad Queen, and, indeed, Jon emasculating himself and his true identity to bend to her will (even if he did kill her in the end), few questioned Sansa's character development, which, for many, was the most impressive of the series.
So it only stood to reason that she would remove the North from the Seven Kingdoms and become its Queen.

Now, putting Sansa's glorious coronation outfit to the side, it's been explained why she wore her hair down in the finale. At this point, it's worth noting that this the first time she's done it in the entire series.
This explanation has come from none other than Sophie Turner herself, who said last year:
"Sansa's hair is constantly reflecting the people she’s learning from, or mimicking, or inspired by at the time. When she's Cersei's prisoner, and she's kind of absorbing all her manipulative techniques, it's reflected in her hairstyle, and when she's finding the spirit of Margaery in herself, she wears her hair like Margaery."
Having learned all the lessons she needed to, and some really were hard learned (*cough* Joffrey), Sansa is finally able to be her true self and wear the crown - a detail which fans were quick to praise on social media.
On that note, all hail the Queen in the North!
