A pretty, easy, classic do. <3
I thought I made this myself, but, in actuality, its called the Gibson Tuck. I needed a somewhat historically accurate hair style I could do in five seconds for Frankenstein and voila!

    Brush your hair. There's really no picture needed for this.

    Step 2

    Put your hair into a pony tail.
    Mine's in a low one because my layers will fall if its not. Use a hair tie that somewhat matches your hair color, if you can.

    Then, above the hair tie, split the hair to make somewhat pocket in the hair.

    Step 3

    Shove the pony tail into that pocket. It will look like a twist, which is the desired look. Try to put it in there evenly. Then, use the hair above the pocket, or a cute clip, to cover the obvious "hole" in your hair.

    Finally, take your bangs (if you have any) and twist them against your scalp and pin it behind your ear. (If you aren't aware as to how to twist your hair, this tutorial should help: http://www.cutoutandkeep.net/projects/twisted_fohawk) Or you could braid them, curl them, do whatever.

Oh! We called these Topsy-tails when I was a kid. You could even buy a tool to help you pull it through! (Like you really need one!)

I'd forgotten about this style! Thanks for the reminder! I'll have to do my hair like this more often!
