Tuck and Cover Gatsby Style | MissySue.com Tuck and Cover Gatsby Style | MissySue.comThe Tuck and CoverΒ (video tutorial) now has a new version, the Tuck and Cover Great Gatsby style! This is such a fun hairstyle and easy to do! If you love this look be sure and check out the Tuck and Cover HalfΒ too!

Over the weekend I was out shopping and spotted a girl in Forever21 sporting the hairstyle. It always looks so darn cute and I love seeing it in so many different places. While I was there I spotted this adorable headband and couldn’t help but purchase it for a new hairstyle post. As I was playing around with the headband in my bathroom I started randomly tucking my hair into it and before I knew it this hairstyle was created!

This look is super easy to do and all you need is a really fun headband.

Follow these quick steps to achieve the style:

1 / Place the headband over the head, lining the front up with your hairline.

2 / Grab the hair directly in front of your right ear and wrap it around the band so the ends hang back down again.

3 / Combine this with the hair directly next to it and wrap it around the band again as in step 2.

4 / Now, take the next section of hair, bringing it up towards the band but instead of tucking it in simply hold it over the band.

5 / Then, take the remaining hair and push it all up towards the band forming a clump or ball shape.

6 / Push the hair down so it tucks into the band but the ends remain sticking out.

7 / Pull down a few pieces on the side so it has a more asymmetrical feel and covers the left ear.

8 / Gently pull the hair on top to loosen it slightly.

Done! Now you can wear the Tuck and Cover Great Gatsby style with that 1920’s flair!

        Dear Melissa,
        I just wanted to say thank you for putting up this tutorial – it was my birthday party last night, and I had a special flapper style dress to wear. I knew that I needed an appropriate hairstyle, but in the past I’ve found getting faux short hair for vintage looks to be time consuming. I tried out your tutorial, and found this gave me the look I was after in no time at all! I received so many compliments on my hair, I think this will now be my go-to look for when I’m doing a 1920’s vibe!
        Many thanks again,
        Porcelina x

        P.S. If you would like to see a picture of my efforts, I have done a blog post of my flapper look here:

    This is great for a themed party or evening out! I love your highlights too, Melissa! (Did you do them yourself?) PS-I’m working on actually getting my braid to look nice enough to send a pic ; )
