hair “to stare—That makest my blood cold, and my,” JULIUS CAESAR, iv. 3. 278 ; “With hair up-staring,” THE TEMPEST, i. 2. 213. Formerly this expression not only found a place in the most serious poetry, but belonged to the phraseology of daily life. “Les cheveux luy dressent. His haire stares, or stands annend.” Cotgrave's Fr. and Engl. Dict. sub “Dresser;” and compare Florio's Ital. and Engl. Dict. sub“Arricciare.”
