Lazy Girl Gibson Tuck (protective style)

Hey Maicurlies,

I (yet again) wanted to share a simple protective style that I seem to turn to whenever I am really not in the mood to fuss around with my hair or if my hair should be washed and I am slacking for the day (don’t judge me it happens!) 😀 

There are a number of  different ways in which I like to do the Gibson Tuck and today I wanted to share this method. 

It really is as simple and easy as it looks. 2 two strand twists on either side, 1 forward “flat twist” at the front (don’t judge my “forward flat twist” I know it is ugly LOL) and then you tuck away the rest of the hair by rolling and tucking it away under the headband. Pin back the twists and presto you are done! 

I use a headband for two reasons. 1. it acts as an accessory and 2. I use it to help tuck away the hair that isn’t twisted. 

Like I said there are several different ways in which you can do the Gibson tuck so on the day when I recorded the video 

I also took a few pictures of another versions of the style and changed up the headband (I really need to make a new headband to spruce things up). 

What do you think, Gibson tucks yay or nay? Do you have favorite Gibson tuck styles? If so let me know, I would love to hear from you! 

Thanks
