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.

Great product!

The Half-up is SO easy to use. I used it to put my hair up for a wedding recently and loved how it worked. Held my hair in place as I dance the night away!

good for long hair

I would definitely use this if I had long hair but my hair was way too short for it otherwise it was a good product

I couldn't figure it out!

I attempted to use this, but couldn't figure it out. It was disappointing because it appears to be really easy and with the pictures on the packaging, I thought it would be simple. It was not.

It took me a couple of tries to get the hang of this hair gadget, but once I got it I really liked the way my hair looked!

I like the idea of this, but it isn't too effective, especially not when you have a lot of hair like me and it is really silky smooth and straight. It's hard to keep it all in this thing!

Fabulous for really thin hair too!
Sampled

I already own the full-size WRAP UP and it works great with my full, long hair. I tried this little marvel for a half bun and it worked like a charm also. Definitely still needed bobby pins to hold in those loose strands due to my layered cut but it saves time and you can rock a nice, tight & polished bun or a fun, flirty & messy bun if you loosen it up.

This did not work for my hair. I have very fine hair and this just wasn't for me. The product will probably work for people with more hair!

not for me

This product did not work in my hair. I have long, medium thickness hair. I also have layers in my hair which made it impossible to get this tool to work.

This was a neat tool. Not sure that I have totally gotten the hang of how to use it yet but I definitely will use it.

Maybe it's just me...

but I couldn't get the hang of this thing. I have shoulder length, straight, fine hair - but a goodly amount of it. I had too much hair to use it as a bun for all of my hair, but when I tried to use it on just part of my hair, I couldn't get it secure without the device showing.
