THE ART OF TUCKING
I've pulled my hair up to the top of my head, in one of my nifty hairties, and had to learn to art of tucking. Sometimes, I wasn't quite sure what to do with my topknot. Should I make it into a donut bun?Have it swayed off to the side? Leave some out in the front? Some out in the bottom? Decisions?! Decisions?! But what ever I finally decided to do, I had to learn the art of tucking.
I always started with one of my For The Gym Hairties, where I could establish my base creation, if you will. Then after I've constructed some sort of form, I'd start to wrap my locs around in various directions, until finally I had several loose ends (loose locs) sticking out and needed to be tucked. What's so nice about our hair is its versatility and how we don't really need bobby pins and such. If you have a good hairtie, or even if you don't, you can still create a decent style.
So once I've got my hair just as I like it, I'll grab one of my gemstone hairties for the finale'! I'll place it around the front, side or back, and anchor it in such a way that the gems get the most visibility. Usually, I'll double it up, to facilitate the level of tightness I'm looking for. A comfortable accent is just what's needed to finish the look!
