The Victorian era was known for elegant hairstyles that are still considered beautiful today. While complex curls are a characteristic of these styles, there are some simpler styles that are very Victorian and can add a bit of everyday elegance. These instructions are for a style called the Gibson Tuck, which is simple enough for everyday wear. The style can be decorated with combs, flowers or ribbons for a more complex look.
- Skill level:
- Moderately Easy
Things you need
- Ponytail holders
- Hair clips
- Clips or combs
- Curling iron
Pull your hair back into a ponytail.
Pull the hair apart at the top of the ponytail and form a pocket in the hair.
Flip your ponytail over the top and into the pocket. Wind your hair around in a sort of bun to get it to fit, but do not pull your ponytail through.
Secure your hair with hair clips.
Add complexity to the look by adding a comb, flowers or ribbons. You can also pull some hair from the front and curl it into ringlets with a curling iron.
Tips and warnings
- Use ponytail holders that are the same colour as your hair to make them less visible.
- Pomade is useful to add shine and eliminate stray hairs, especially if you decide to curl your hair.
