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.

not a big fan

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.

Didn't work at all
Sampled

My hair did not stay in this at all. Would definitely not purchase this. I wish it wasn't brown as well because it kept showing through my hair so it's not ideal for blonde or black hair.

marvelous
Purchased

I am in the process of growing out a pixie cut and with a few bobby pins at the nape of my neck, i'l able to use this to create an adorable tiny little bun. It holds SO WELL and never gets tangled or poke out. I'm happy.

Its okay

Not all my hair could fit in it to make a complete bun, but it works for the half up half down hair do. I still haven't actually worn it out though.

Well

I think its kind of cool! I just gotta practice using it, because I keep messing it up. Lol but its a cool product. My sisters used it on their hair, and I loved it on them!

I don't know why this has such bad reviews! I bought one for me and my niece and they both work great! We both have medium length straight hair and it holds all day and is very easy to use. I would definitely buy again!

Perfect for Fine Hair
Purchased

I intentionally purchased the half up because I have very fine hair and the normal one would have shown through my bun. The Half Up is perfect for a full bun that doesn't look as pathetic as it used to. I'm sure it works well for just half of your hair, but for me I use it like the full size one and it's perfect.
