The Beachwaver Co. The Half Up

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.

I have a lot of hair and this did nothing for me. This would probably work better for someone with very thin hair.

Beach waver Half up
Purchased

Although I like this look, it is very difficult to get my hair in the tiny slot. I have fine hair so I would expect it will be impossible if you have thick hair.

Great for a half up or super fine hair
SampledPurchased

I love this for my baby fine hair. The full size versions of these always show through and frustrate me when I just want to throw all of my hair up on my head. This one works at pulling all of my hair up or half of it up without showing through.

I'm not great at using products like this, and in general they're just not for me. Plus I don't really want the hairstyle it's trying to achieve.

Not impressed

I honestly didn't even take this out of the packaging because I knew that it wouldn't work in my hair. I took it straight to Goodwill. :)

not a big fan
Purchased

I was anxious to try the Half Up. I thought it would be a great tool to keep in my desk drawer at work. Maybe it takes practice, but its certainly NOT something I will be using at work. I'll use it at home to keep my hair off my face while I try my Birchbox products!

Works great
Purchased

Since I have fine hair I use this for all of my hair and it works well. My hair is too fine/short to use it for a half up. Too much of the sponge shows. Easy to use and makes a cute bun!

Doesn't hook in back

Wanted to love this but it doesn't hook in the back and there is no way to keep it from falling out because of it. Good idea but the design really needs some work.

Good but tricky
Purchased

A little tricky to get all of my stringy smooth hair to stay in it without a TON of hairspray, but it does create sleek buns when my hair chooses to cooperate.
