Stylist Benjamin James schooled us on how to create the perfect tuck

The hair tuck isn’t just the latest regalia of hairstyles, it’s pretty much our go-to style lately. We can’t think of a better way to disguise third day hair on irrevocable weather days. Think of this style as the general connoisseur of cool girl hair.  

(The tuck is an ubiquitous code for the Lou Doillons of the modern-day world, and we want in!)

We asked stylist Benjamin James of Ryder Salon @Britomart to show us how to create the right texture to take this look from day to night.
 

STEP ONE
"Start with clean hair or use a good dry shampoo for oily roots.  The answer to oily roots, if it hasn’t been washed, is to actually wash it. But the second best option is to use a good powder product to give it an extra day or two by soaking up some of that greasiness (recommend : R+Co Death Valley or Davines Volume Creator).
 

STEP TWO
Prepare the texture of the hair. Condition it by spraying the mids and ends with R+Co One Prepping Spray (this product acts as a base coat and evens out the porosity of hair. It is also great for detangling and light conditioning). 

STEP THREE
Spritz R+Co Dallas Thickening Spray. This product adds volume on the roots and acts as a great foundation.
 

STEP FOUR
Lightly blow-dry with a round brush to create a root lift and smoothen the mids and ends.

Finally, pull the hair into one place and secure the ends with a fine hair tie (for mid- to long-length). And now we are down to business—go ahead and tuck it in and pull pieces out to create a bob-like shape."
 

[PS : Always remember, the top of your hair should always punctuate Bardot’s allure; doesn’t matter if the rest is baked as f.]
