The Hair Tuck: Are You In Or Out?

When I leave for work in the morning I am typically half sleeping, frazzled, and trying to pull myself together in the event I run into someone I know on the subway or out in the street. I truly live by the rule, don't talk to me before I have my morning coffee. So naturally, my street style Monday-Friday AM consists of a relaxed/fun outfit with my favorite quilted Burberry coat thrown over and buttoned to the neck to polish off the look. I don't even bother to untuck my hair from my coat, it requires too much effort. Which brings me to the topic of today's post, the new beauty trick- untucked hair. Yes, tucking your hair into your clothing on purpose. At first I laughed when I read about it in the beauty/fashion magazines. I mean, we all do it everyday whether it's on purpose or not! But then I realized it's actually super catchy and it's a fun way to edge up your style. The result of the look? Instant cool-girl.

The hair tuck hides the ends of your hair and allows the focus to be on the top half (which is usually the shiniest). You can play around with the tuck by pulling your hair into a scarf, shirt, collar, or even a necklace. When in doubt, you can trust this to be the easiest way to look insanely chic out in the streets. You can even fake a bob if you pull the look off right. 

The hair tuck trend was born on the runway and because of it's simplicity I think it's here to stay. So what do you think? Are you in or out?

Other Tucks I love:

I love this look for many reasons. Firstly, the red lips pop against the blue scarf, but I mostly love how she managed to tuck her hair into a scarf. The loose pieces in the front add the minimalist touch.

The Braid Tuck. Perfect for a warm springy day.

The original hair tuck shown above by Miranda Kerr for H&M. The look is totally low key and effortless. Have I sold you on the tuck yet?

  4. I've been tucking my hair in a lot lately, but I normally have it out. It looks different and at the same time it looks like I got a haircut. Love the pictures and hair inspirations.

  10. I definitely love the look of the hair tuck. Although trying it out for myself just didn't work out since it felt too odd. Not something I really thought about too much before though, haha.

  13. I don't personally like hair-tucking on purpose. It's not that it looks like it is, but it tends to not behave the way "natural" tucking does...

    Does that even make sense???
