Hair Tutorial// The Gibson Tuck

Hey you!! Its me again, back with an easy and fun hair tutorial! This is another style that was requested a bunch of times through emails and comments after this outfit post, so for those of you that wanted a step-by-step, here you have it!!!
This style is a lot like the headband tuck in that you're going to be tucking your hair up and inside, only this time its going to be your own hair you'll be tucking around and not a headband! I love this style because it can look so elegant and chic, while being so fast and effortless to create. 
Supplies:

  • Hairtie
  • Bobbypins
Step #1: Begin twisting the hair on our side of your head over itself, continuesly grabbind more hair from underneath and pulling it out and over (like in this post) until you get just past your ear. Repeat on the other side of your head, then combine the two twists into a low ponytail at the back of your head.
Step #2: Work your fingers right down the middle of your ponytail, from the middle of your head right down into the middle of your ponytail. Don't go all the way through! You're merely making a little 'pouch' or 'hammock' for the rest of your hair to sit in.
Step #3: Bunch your hair up in your hand and tuck up and inside the little pouch you just made from your ponytail! (If you'd like more volumn in the result, you might want to tease your ponytail a bit before tucking securely inside.) Proceed to pin it in place a half dozen times or so until secure. At this point I tugged my flyaway's out a bit, and took a little chunk of my long bangs and just let it go, but that's totally up to you! Spritz with a bit of hairspray, smooth over a little, and you're all done!
Well as always I hope you give it a try, and if you do and it appears somewhere on you blog I'll link up your post right here in this one!

Take care and have a positive day!
Xoxo, Emily

P.S. Stay tuned tomorrow for the announcement of the three winners of the leopard heels!

  24. A bit different to how I do mine, but I will have to try yours! My tail bone length hair makes some styles a bit difficult, but i like having my hair up to prevent tangles. I'be been trying hare to branch out from ponies and buns!

  30. I tried this the other day and I struggled with it! Your instructions were super clear and easy, but my side twists kept coming untwisted when I tried to pull everything back into a ponytail and I just couldn't hide my hair tie no matter how hard I tried!

    I did try it on straight, product-free hair, so maybe if I curl it and have mousse or something in it first it'll work better?

    Help!!!

    1. Thank you so much for coming to me! I have a few tips, because That happened to me once with the twists, and I got so frustrated! Curls or waves is a good idea for a softer smoother finished look, and some spritzes of hairspray are definitely how I go about it! I run my fingers through my hair a bit while spraying, to get a little coating without making it all stick together:) Then when I do one twist, I'll pin the end or clip it loosely to hold it in place till I'm ready with the next! does that make sense?

      Also with the hairtie, siometimes the hair from the base of my neck is to tightly in the ponytail, and to I just have to pull the hair out of the ponytail (carefully) and keep twisting it back to your head to see if that's enough.

      I'm going to start making videos of my hair tutorials soon to help out a bit more with the instructions, but i Hope in that meantime that all this ranting has helped a bit!
      Thank you so much for trying my hair tutorials, you made my day! Also feel free to come back with any more questions, but again I hope I've helped!!

  32. Hi Emily,

    I've tried this on my hair a few times. It's fairly long and I have trouble getting it all to go in the "pony pouch". I get this really messy looking spot in the middle where I've stuffed all my hair in. Eventually usually it all works out, but I've found it rather frustrating.

    Any tips?

    I'm rather fond of the style... I tried it for the first time getting ready for a date night. Later that evening he proposed!

  39. I can't figure out how you get the hair into the "pouch" at the nape of the neck. When I roll it into itself it isn't working, no matter how loose, tight low or high the ponytail placement is. Help! :)
