I was hoping this would be the solution to putting up my hair in a bun that doesn't involve bobby pins or socks, but I guess my layered hair just doesn't work well in buns unless I use copious amounts of hair gel.
That being said, I think the concept of this wrap-up is cool, and it kind of worked for a top 1/4-1/3 of my hair for a half-updo, but it didn't feel very secure. The tutorial seemed pretty straight forward, however, a video link would have been better. Maybe I'll try again when my hair grows out. Also, I'm not buying the "full-sized" product, because the Birchbox sample *is* the full-size that costs $9 anyway.
