If you can do a French Braid, you can do a tucked one. Don't tell me you have too much length, watch Gossamer.

I've never been able to do this successfully. Unless I braid tightly, the braid falls apart and I can't fit the braid under a tight weave.

She uses a ribbon to pull the braid up and under.

Mind. Blown.

Gave it a try earlier since I had done a French braid anyway.
I never knew how frizzy my hair is until I started taking pictures.

I tuck my plaits/braids in like this all the time. It's very convenient.

I haven't done this in a while. Old picture is old:

I find it uncomfortable, unfortunately. Tucking up all that hair pulls on the scalp. But it's so beautiful!

Here we are. Held by 2 spin pins, Senzalimiti for decorative purposes only. It holds like a rock and is very comfortable, I probably could get 3 days' wear from it. Oiled ready to wash tomorrow, it would have been less floppy had I damp bunned it. I don't French braid much at this length, my cobwebby hair argues against it fiercely.

Sarah, :thudpile: so beautiful! It's no surprise, your hair looks gorgeous in any hairstyle :)



Unfortunately, another hairstyle of the month passes me by :( it pulls on individual strands when I try to make it, it looks messy because of a ton of baby hair and frizz, and it gives me headaches :( I'll just lurk here and admire in silence :flower:

I often skip doing hairstyles of the month too. Luckily, this one I can do, though my hair complains :)

I love this style :) I use a topsy tail to pull the braid up with, makes it much easier.

Lovely everyone!

I did a variation on the Tucked French Braid by turning it into a Beehive! I made a small French Braid to produce a pocket and two braided sections tucked and pinned within in it.

Great idea!
The notion of creating a pocket gives me a bunch of ideas
I wonder if this style would work low and sideways from ear to ear. .

How on earth did you get all your hair tucked in? I struggle with it at my length!

I wondered about sideways, too! If you try it I want to hear about it!

I’ve just tried out a half up version, borrowing the beehive idea. I’ve no idea how it looks but it feels secure and I haven’t used anything to secure it, not even on the ends of the braid.

This could be my daily get-my-hair-out-of-my-face style as it doesn’t use any tools and is comfortable.

ETA: I’ve just realised I said braid, not plait. Am I losing my Englishness? You dastardly Americans and your braiding talk :-)

I've never tried tucking it in sections before... must give that a whirl.

I find that my success depends on how I've french-braided the hair to begin with (whether I have room or not)... unfortunately, I've never figured out just what I do when I create a great "pocket" vs when I don't!

What amazes me is... how does she not get an uber-ginormous bump when she's done? Mine can border on looking like I just have a weird-shaped skull.

Also, I am not always so great at pinning it securely...

O.k., well darn - I sort of did this style today, but it's a tucked dutch braid, not a french.

I would imagine it is more difficult to tuck a Dutch. Any tips?

Very old picture of a tucked Dutch back when my hair was shorter and I was still dying. The secret is to braid the top a little loose, bring the dangly part up to one side, and then pull the loops from that side of the braid over, and pin in place. Makes a really interesting thing that looks like a french twist from one side and a complicated looking braid from the other. I used to wear the hair that way all of the time when it was shorter and easier to braid.https://i.imgur.com/tuvFpEW.jpghttps://i.imgur.com/DDJbJcy.jpg

That's funny. I have been wearing a tucked Dutch braid for a week. I hold it with spin pins.

My hair can be slippery too. I usually spritz and the slight dampness improves hold.

I've tried that, but it's very temporary for me :(
I have some hair toys on the way though so I'm hoping those will do the trick!

i definitely want to try this look! now i only need to learn how to french braid, hur hur.

easier said than done. every braid i've ever tried slips out within an hour.

quick question, what would be the easier way to fasten/secure this hairstyle?

I use spin pins, they have wonderful holding powers.

I've always wanted to do a Tucked French Braid, but thought my hair was too long. Gossamer's video was a revelation!

Took this photo of my first TFB last night, after wearing it several hours, out for the evening to a friend's place. My son's girlfriend did the french braid (because she likes braiding hair) and I did the tucking part. Not a great pic sorry.
