Hair Tutorial: the Easy Headband Tuck

Hey there you guys! I mean girls... cuz these hairstyles are mostly for girls, unless you have long hair and just *slap* sorry! 
Okay anyways I'm always excited sharing hair tutorials with you ladies because you always leave great feedback and I love hearing about where you've worn a style! So what do you think about this one? 
I'm sure you've seen it around before because its a popular look, and its so easy that there's almost no step by step needed! Whenever I skimp on pictures however I always get questions about certain bits that I left out, so here's the whole style one step at a time!:)
  • Comb for teasing
  • Headband
Step 1: Start by teasing your hair in the back a bit for some nice voolume (view tutorial here). Make sure to smooth over the teasing first, then add a headbanc right on top, smoothing hair underneath. 
Step 2: Begin tucking your hair into your headband from the top down by gently swagging the hair back towards your ears and then tucking down inside! I like to work with the first bit of hair in front of my ears, then do the same thing on the other side before moving to the back.
Step 3: Take the rest of your hair in smallish sections and keep tucking over and down behind your headband, making sure to keep your 'bun' full and fluffy. The messier it is the more naturl and easy it'll look! Tug the crown of your head out a bit if needed, give a spritze of spray if you like, and that's all there is to it!! How could that get any easier I mean really?
Notes: If your hair is freshly cleaned (aka no product) it probably won't grip together as well, so feel free to pin a little here and there!
Also if your hair is pretty straight, you'll want to give it a little curl time before proceeding with this hair style, this will add more movement and forgiveness where the style is concerned.
If you decide to give this a try and a pic of you appears on your blog somewhere, let me know because I'd love to link back to your post here!

Have a lovely day!
xo, Emily

  18. Great tutorial, like the rest of them to!

  19. Adorable! I can't wait to try this, it'll be perfect for school to keep my hair out of my face as I paint, while still looking super cute =]

  20. So pretty! And just a little tip for anyone reading this, if you style your hair this way when it is damp and leave it in overnight your hair will be in ringlets when you take it out. Then you can leave them as they are or comb them through for soft curls/waves.

    This is my favourite way to curl my hair because it's quick (you do have to leave it overnight, but the actual styling and taking it out only takes about 15 minutes) and uses no heat so it's pretty easy on your hair, and I find I get really nice, natural-looking curls in my dead-straight hair from doing this. :)

    1. I found the same thing and you can even leave this in for a day style and take it out of a quick change to curls for an evening dinner or party, perfect for when time is of the essence.

  21. Hey, I finally did this style but I modified it. :-)

  22. Hi! I think I'm going to cry! My hair is as long as yours and I have had the hardest time finding tutorials for my hair!!!!!!! I am soooo excited! I actually pinned the Bohemian Gypsy a long time ago on Pinterest but didn't realize you had all these tutorials. I got my hair done the same way for a fashion show! Thanks for the tutorials! It's a dream come true! (Of sorts)
