Leaving your hair tucked into your turtleneck:
Strategically cool or straight stupid?
I noticed it a ton at NYFW. Effortlessly beautiful & waify girls, looking like they hadn't had time to adjust their hair after throwing on their insanely tall turtlenecks. Just one more example of the importance of looking effortless.
Believe it or not, though, leaving your hair tucked in is actually more difficult than the alternative.
Unless your hair is, of course, a solid, unified, entity - keeping all of it in any position - let alone one that is so precarious to begin with - will prove difficult. The disarray usually begins with a couple stray little wisps, and ends with giant tufts and untamable static for an effortlessly homeless person look. Which is why any time I attempt this "trend", I go in knowing full-well that within minutes I'll be right back where I started - pre turtleneck.

Which is fine. Because maybe those 2 minutes of effortless french girl glory are enough to make up for the fury that is my unmanageable mane.
Also, having hair against my neck is really uncomfortable.
Not that comfort has ever motivated me before.
