    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
    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.
