Birchbox Breakdown

Buh-bye sock bun. The style to rock right now is the romantic and effortless half-up, half-down. For a look reminiscent of Claire Danes circa Romeo + Juliet, rely on SARAHPOTEMPA's The Half Up;. Like its big sis The WRAP UP™, this nifty tool helps you fake a fuller mane and secures your bun without the help of bobby pins.

How it Works

Made of strong and cushy foam, The Half Up secures your updo sans bobby pins and comes in three hair color-matching options: Black, Brunette, and Blonde.

How to Use

Pull your hair into a half-ponytail and slide the tip of pony through the opening of The Half Up. Next, roll it up to the base of the ponytail, fold the flexible ends into a round bun, and voilá—an instantly chic ’do.

I was confused at first, but my hair is too short and fine to use this.

This was very easy to use. I have short hair and I didn't have a problem putting it in my hair.

This product was easy to use for a quick, messy bun look. Perfect for a running quick errands or going to the gym.

Didn't really work for me
Sampled

I don't wear my hair up that much, but I thought this product was interesting so I gave it a try. It didn't really work for me. I either don't have enough hair for this or didn't do it right because my hair didn't fully cover the band and the little ball on my head just looked silly. I may try out using it wet to achieve waves and see if that works better for me.

Did not work with my fine hair
Sampled

I followed the instructions but my hair is super fine and fell out several times. Also because my hair is so fine, even with the tool wrapped around, I could still see bits of it showing through my hair. I was not able to get it to a point where I felt like I would be comfortable leaving the house.

cute but not for me

I would've liked to have gotten the full bun instead of the half up. i have thick hair so this product didn't work as well for me as i would have liked. too bad!

Literally use this every single day.

I work in a warehouse and have to keep my hair up at all times. I use this because it's effective and much cuter than just a hair clip or ponytail. It's so easy to use, I don't even need a mirror. Totally worth purchasing!

I have fine/thin hair and it barely worked for me. I was not a fan at all.
