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 was very skeptical when I opened this product. It seemed a little cheap looking. It took me a few tries but I figured out how to get my hair in a bun with this thing. The directions were very simple and straight-forward; I think my hair just didn't want to cooperate. Whenever I put my hair up, I'll be using this little tool. It does keep things in nicely if you get it up there correctly.

Fun but difficult to use
Sampled

I recieved this in my February birchbox and was excited because I wanted to try this type of product. It is a little difficult to use. The slit in the middle works with my fine hair but it would be difficult if you have thick hair.

Do not get it...
Sampled

I'm very inexperienced when it comes to hair and I could not get this to work. I don't understand it... I will likely give away to someone because I will never use it, and doubt I would ever figure it out.

Not good for fine hair
Sampled

I have very fine hair, and my hair just fell out of this product. I tried to use it with half of my hair, all of my hair, and neither way worked very well. My hair is past my shoulders so long enough to use this type of thing, but i think thicker hair works better. My friend used hers and it looks amazing because she has longer and thicker hair.

Too small
Sampled

I have thick curly kinky hair. The opening to put your hair through, is too narrow
i cannot even put one forth of my hair through it. It may work well with people with thinner hair.

Great for short hair!
Sampled

I have shoulder-length hair and this product would be perfect to pull it all up in a "sock bun" type look, but unfortunately my hair is really layered and it's hard to use because of that. If my hair was all one length, it would be the best product EVER. Forget the sock-bun, this looks way better and is SO easy!

Makes cute buns!
Sampled

Love the product. I have long hair but I was able to use for a full bun. Also have 3 girls so they also fight over it. I think it's pricey but may need to get more to have peace and quiet at home.

The half-up
Sampled

This is an interesting hair product. I like how it is easy to use. I have really thick hair but I was still able to use this to do a small bun with the upper half of my hair, so I like it.

Not impressed
Sampled

I have long hair with layers. I found this tool to be difficult to use. My hair wasn't sleek looking as the pictures, it was all messy and loose. Might have been easier to use if I had another pair of hands to help or had shorter hair without layers. Good concept, just wish it had worked for me.

Useless
Sampled

I found this product completely useless for my super fine hair. Even though I have fine hair, it was difficult to get it through the slot.
