Looking for a fresh hairstyle for spring, but don't want to cut your long locks? No problem! Introducing the ever-so-clever hair tuck that instantly gives you a cute long bob, no scissors in sight...
What is the hair tuck?
The hair tuck is the simple technique of tucking their hair into your collar or scarf in order to create the false impression of a bob, or a long bob (lob). A very "Parisian chic" style, the key is all about keeping the look natural, with shiny smooth hair. A few flyaways are fine, but frizz is strictly forbidden.
How to style tucked-in hair
After washing and blow-drying your hair straight, pick your outfit, making sure to choose a sweater or coat with a relatively high neckline. You could also opt for a scarf, but bear in mind you will probably take it off once inside, and your faux-lob will be finished.
Brush your hair straight, then put on your sweater/coat so that the hair stays underneath, tucked in around the neck and shoulders. Very gently, pull the hair slightly out to reduce any tension and create a little volume around the collar. Finish with a spritz of hairspray to keep your faux-lob in place. We recommend Infinium Pure from L'Oréal Professionnel: light yet strong, hypoallergenic and fragrance-free.
How to get shiny, sleek hair
Smooth, silky hair is the best base for the hair tuck. If your hair is damaged and prone to frizz, treat it to some nourishing and repairing haircare such as Pro Fiber, a collection that offers different formulae for a variety of hair concerns: from thick, damaged hair to fine, lifeless locks, and even hair that shows just a few signs of damage.
The result is smooth, naturally shiny hair that looks perfectly at home when styled into a faux bob using the tuck technique!
