Tucked-In Hair is Back According to Milan Street Style

There's an art to the hair tuck.

It was just about a year ago when every girl in fashion was tucking their hair into their sweaters, making it immediately the It girl thing to do. Everyone quickly followed suit, and while the tucked-in hair trend died down during the warmer months, according to the Milan street-style set, the look is back for the fall and winter seasons.

There’s two reasons we love this look. For one, it is the perfect way to fake a short haircut. Two: It just looks extremely stylish and polished. While some people may look at it as a basic hair trend, we’re here to prove that it is far from that. Every hair trend has a specific formula to help you nail the look. Below, we’re giving you tips on how you can master the art of tucking your hair into your clothing, all in the name of #fashion:

Tips for Mastering the Tucked-In Hair Trend

1. Use a dry shampoo.

Ladies, how many times have you looked at the collar of your clothing to find residue from your hair on it? Oil stains and hair product stains are a complete headache to remove. A simple solution for when you want to try the tucked-in hair trend: Use a dry shampoo like Dove Refresh+Care Detox & Purify Dry Shampoo on your hair to remove excess oil.

Normally, when applying dry shampoo to your hair, the goal is to focus on your roots. In this case, we need to remove any oil from the ends too. How to do this? Make sure you use a brush to comb the product throughout your entire head.

2. Make it look natural.

Okay, some may get dressed then place their hair into their collar. This formula may not create the effortless look you are going for. If you’re going to try your hand at this trend, do it right: Make it look as unintentional as possible. Style your hair first, then layer your garments over it.

3. Try it with neat hairstyles.

Last year it was all about messy tucked-in hairstyles. While we still have an affinity for this look, we’re becoming a bit obsessed with the neater versions too. When styling your hair, opt for using a boar-bristled brush to smoothen out your locks. If needed, finish your hairstyle with a firm hold hairspray to prevent flyaways.

4. Protect the ends of your hair.

One caveat when wearing this trend is that the fabrics from your clothing can be damaging to the ends of your hair. Fabrics like wool snag your ends, while fabrics like cotton can have a drying effect. Protect your ends with a lightweight hair serum. Try Suave Professionals Split End Rescue Hair Serum to protect your hair from snagging.
