The Roll, Tuck and Pin

The Roll, Tuck and Pin

I get a lot of questions about how to style hair. A lot of us ladies would like to rock our hair in different attractive ways like we did with relaxed hair, or like we do with weaves. Of course, the hairdresser can’t come and style it each morning, and we generally don’t have more than maybe 10 minutes for hair styling each morning, so we need something that is quick, easy, and fine, and if possible can last for the whole week with  minimal stress.

So I’m on a mission. Every week, I will try to find a hairstyle that fits this description and get you a tutorial that shows you how to make it. Even if I have to do it myself. It will help me learn the styles too!


Today’s hairstyle it the roll-tuck-pin, also known as Ridges. It’s a very simple hairstyle to do, and takes about 10 minutes in total.

All you do is part your hair into a few horizontal sections. This photo shows 7, but you can do more if you like. Stretch out the hair in each section and roll it up like you would a mat. Use one or two pins to hold your roll in place, and move to the next section.

Don’t be afraid to use as many hair pins as you may need to hold it in place. It can be done on an old twist-out or wash-and-go, or on freshly washed hair (But you may need to stretch it first).

As always I’ll advise you to try a new style on a day when you have time because getting it right may require starting over a few times till your arms begin to ache (somebody say amen!)

Please watch this video by Camille Janae who has a hair texture many of us can relate to, and let me know how it goes!
