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.

Nice Concept, Just Didn't Work for Me
Sampled

I liked the concept of this hair tool, as I like wearing my hair up and out of my way. Typically I do a sock bun, or just a messy twist with some pins. I tried using this, but it did not hold my hair well. My hair is very straight and fine. I did add some texturizing spray to see if that would help, but it still slipped out after a few minutes. Perhaps I wasn't using it correctly, although the instructions seem simple.

I will keep practicing, but in the meantime, I will continue with my usual methods.

I was underwhelmed by this. Great idea, but my hair is long an layered, making it difficult to use.

Short hair

Got this in my box but I have short hair and am not able to use. Wish it was a headband.

Didn't work with my hair
Sampled

I think my hair is too thick and long for this product. It was difficult for me to do by myself because I couldn't reach the ends of my hair to roll the tool up. It is also not very secure.

Bun perfection
Sampled

Loved! I can finally do a ballerina bun now. I have fine hair so this was the perfect tool to achieve this look.

Easy enough to use
Sampled

This product was easy enough for me to use. It will only hold half of my hair which is what the instructions say. I am not sure why people are complaining that it only holds half when that is what the product description says. However, it holds all of my 6 year olds hair up. She had fine, wavy very blonde hair so it's a bit on the thinner side. I will not be purchasing this as I already got the full size product.

Not for thick hair
Sampled

If you have thick hair, this product will not hold your hair. It for people with thin medium length hair.

Pleasantly Surprised!
Sampled

When I saw that I would be receiving this in my box, I was distraught. Now I am delighted! My hair is thin and I have never been able to have an attractive bun. Now I can! This fit all of my hair and held it all day. No bobby pins, no hair spray. I will be purchasing this when I have worn this one out.

LOVE IT!
Sampled

I was disappointed when I peaked my Box and saw this. Then I received my box and tried it, AHHHHHHHHH I love it. I haven't worn it out but this makes my bedtime bun ridiculously easy. I have shoulder length AA hair and , pretty thin . I brush my hair out, roll it up go to sleep. This is freaking awesome! I would have NEVER tried this if it wasn't in my birch box. I don't know how long they last but i might be looking into another after this one is worn out.
