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.

Didn't work well on my hair type
Sampled

I have pretty long kinda thin hair and I love wearing it half up so I was excited to try this. I couldn't make it look neat because of all the hair I have so I didn't find it to be too effective.

Didn't work well at all
Sampled

I have 4 competitive dancers at my house, so we have ALOT of bun formers. Even the girl's dolls have bun formers. lol. We can always use a spare, however this didn't work with my hair or anyone elses. We all have fine hair, but at various lengths. You would think it would work with someone, anyone. Nope, It doesn't hold the hair well at all.

Great product
Sampled

I was doubtful about this product's effectiveness with my fine hair. I was thrilled to see how well it works. I can use it as the half up is intended or use it with all of my hair in a low bun. It doesn't budge. Took me a moment to figure out exactly how to use it but once I did it was very easy.
Might not work as well for thick hair though.

Wasn't for me...

I have extremely long hair, so even if it's for a half up-do I have way too much hair. However, this product worked really well on my cousin, who has a little bit over-the-shoulder hair.

It definately is interesting. Wish I could use it for a full bun but it was pretty cool for the half bun.

The half-up
Sampled

I wasn't super excited about receiving this as a sample, but I will say it works much better than I expected, even with my fine hair.

Very Surprised!

Ok so when I first saw this in my Birchbox I thought I would never use this but I decided to try it anyway. It was a little tricky for me at first because I have layers in my hair but once i got the hang of it, it was awesome. I really like the way it gives my bun some volume. I have really thin hair so this helps a lot.

The Half Up
Sampled

I was excited to see a hair tool in my box this month. My hair is fine and straight and for the half up it really did not work for me. When using it to put up all my hair it worked well and I would use it this way instead of a hair clip.

Neat, but I need a larger product.
Sampled

It worked, but I can't use as much hair in it as I'd like to. My hair is thin, but I have A LOT of it. I can only use a small amount of hair to do the Half Up style. Even then, I have to use bobby pins to keep the bun in place or else it's flying around everywhere when I walk.
