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 did not like this at all. Maybe I was not able to use it properly but my hair kept falling out and I felt like I was breaking the plastic underneath!

A mixed success
Purchased

I love the idea of this, but it doesn't work with my long thick heavy hair. I ended up with a knotted lump instead of a nice bun. But, it worked great on my daughter's finer hair and is a super cute up-do option.

It could be just me, but I couldn't get this to work. I love the idea of it though. I will keep trying!

Not What I Hoped For
Purchased

I have fine hair, so I thought this would be perfect but it just isn't. I either can't get it to bend in the right place or hair falls out all over. Just not what it's cracked up to be. I'll stick to the foam donut to make my ballerina buns.

Nothing special

I wasn't super impressed with this item. Although I still have it I have used it maybe 3 times in the past two years. For me it's not worth the hassle. I have very fine hair and it's difficult to get it down right without showing through.

Couldn't ever figure out how to use this. I ended up throwing it away

Best for shoulder length hair
Sampled

I have owned this WRAP UP for 3 years now and it still looks new. I often use it for a quick updo. This hair accessory is much easier to use than many other bun accessories. I have also used it with different lengths of hair ranging from shoulder length to mid back. I believe it does work best with shorter hair than longer. I found that when using it with longer hair, the bun became to big and the WRAP UP could no longer manage the amount of hair it had to hold.

Works great and holds!
Purchased

This holds all of my hair either in a neat or messier bun. No bobby pins requires. Secures and stays all day. I can use it to make a higher or lower bun. Very soft and light and easy to use.

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!
