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.

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.

It actually works!!!
Sampled

I have a drawer full of similar products that were a total waste of money, so I definitely had my doubts. The directions & drawings were straight forward & clear. I was actually able to successfully use it the first time around, & it stayed in place all day. I look forward to future products from this brand.

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.
