    Default My attempt at a Gibson tuck

    I tried a Gibson tuck for the first time last night! I love it! Finally have a use for that barrette! Which btw I hate how it gets caught when trying to remove it.

    Any tips on how to hide the hair tie and good barrettes that are less likely to damage hair?

    I don't know how you can hide them but it looks great.

    I hadn't heard of this before now, it's so going on my hairstyle list! You did an awesome job. I try to avoid any barrette that has a snap, I use the kind that slides closed like this or maybe even a Flexi-8 to cut down on the damage. It's all those friggin edges and parts in barettes that snag all the hair. I have a barette that I love but barely wear because it takes me ten minutes of coaxing to get it out of my (VERY smooth and non-tangley) hair.

    Beautiful! Love the barrette too
    I second the suggestion of a flexi-8.

    You did a great job on that style! I've never managed a successful Gibson tuck myself, but I like admiring other people's.

    Nice! Gibson Tucks are so elegant but my hair wants to fall right out of the pocket. *sigh* Enjoy it!

    If you pull the elastic lower down on the ponytail right before you tuck, it should fit deeper in the pocket and be less visible.
    My routine has changed since starting to use Rogaine regularly to try to regain some thickness. I still cleanse every other day, but I use T/Sal shampoo, followed by my beloved Suave Wild Cherry conditioner. A vinegar rinse and catnip leave in follow.

    That looks lovely! Barrettes that snag are a pain... I have some and use them *very* seldom, only for special occasions.

    What I do is fold my hair several timesand tie another band around it before I tuck it. Then I pin the band down and use a flower clip to cover the tuck.

    It looks nice it took me many more timesto get it to even work!
