SARAHPOTEMPA 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 was so excited to receive this product! However I was quickly disappointed when I could never get it to work, or stay in place once I got it in. Would not reccommend this product.

Frustrating
Sampled

I was really excited when I got this product however I found it hard to use, It was really small and I have long thin hair.
It just didn't work for me and gave it away.

Worked Well Enough
Purchased

I was hoping for something a little stronger since my hair is seriously thick and slightly unruly. But this did a fair job. With just half of my hair pulled up and in a bun, it held for all of church and most of the rest of the day. I didn't mind that it got a little messy in front as the day went on (I have layers after all). But when I really started moving around later in the afternoon, the hair came out of that bun pretty fast. If you can do a quick restyle half-way through the day (or maybe if you have a different hair-type than me), this would be a worthwhile purchase for your hairstyling kit.

Nice Product
Sampled

I really liked the idea of this, but couldn't wear it as high as I wanted to. I purchased the Wrap Up and really like it for creating a high bun. I do wish it would hold my hair a little tighter, as I usually feel like it might fall out.

Stiff

This thing was so stiff that I couldn't figure out how to work it. Fed not good for thick/curly hair

Didn't like it

It wouldn't keep my hair up. My hair is super long and thick, and it was no match for my hair

This is way too small for my thick hair but it works great for my 6 year old.

Does not perform
Sampled

I am in the military so I have always used a self made real sock bun which works wonderfully. This was just complicated and did not stay well in my thin hair

It is a great idea, but I have fine hair and it looked bad. It was a lot of trouble to try and use it properly. I will pass it along to a friend and hope that she has better luck with it.

This didn't work at all. The concept is good, the execution is not. This was not tight enough to hold my hair hair. I have normal hair, not fine. Disappointed.
