I saw few great pins a while back for Tuck and Cover hairstyles and was excited to try them out. I had a little trouble getting them to work just right at first (not as good with hair as Emilee is) but I found my own variation that works for me. It is a combination of these two styles:
Want to see what I did? You'll have to watch the video. Oh boy...my favorite...me on video. Oh well. We all have to sacrifice for the greater good every now and then, right?
This is truly my go to style right now. It is so easy and classy. I've always been envious of the girls that can make a ponytail look classy. It just makes me look dumpy, and gives me horrendous headaches. This style is fast, keeps my hair off my neck, looks classy, and no headaches!
Another bonus, as mentioned in the video is how my hair turns out after it's been in the tuck and cover style for a little while. Here is what it looks like right out of the band after being up for about 3 hours (the left photo is what it looks like straight out of the band, and the right photo is what it looks like after I've broken up the ringlets a little with my fingers):
If I were to use larger chunks of hair than I did this time around I'd get more of the beach waves look. Fun, huh?! I am in love with this style. Give it a try!
