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.

Not for my hair type
Sampled

My hair is a bit past chin length, and fine and oily. This just slipped out of my hair, not sure if I was using it wrong, but it would probably work much better on thicker hair that has a bit of texture!

Not for short hair
Sampled

I tried this with my short hair (chin length), and as I expected, it fell out of the bun the first time. I managed to get the hair to stay, but my hair is still not long enough to cover the accessory. However, it still worked well, and I look forward to using this when my hair does get a bit longer, since I like the look.

I'm sure this is a fantastic product for those who have long enough hair. My chin-length hair just did not work with this tool.

Didn't work for my hair
Sampled

My hair is too heavy and this really didn't hold it up. I wore it to dinner one night and my hair fell before we even ordered.

This is a very interesting product. If I had long thick hair, I would love it. I thought it was easy to use, and such a neat idea. It is a little too big/bulky for me. I wish they had a "mini" one!! I have short, chin length, fine hair - so this product is more than I need.

Good concept..

Good concept but my hair is too fine for this type of tool. I could see it through my hair.

not for me

Even though this might have worked for a person with long hair, my hair is pretty short, so i didnt even try it. however, I think that even with longer hair, I wouldnt really be interested in trying it.

Doesn't work with super fine hair
Sampled

This is not really a knock against the product but it just doesn't work with super fine hair like mine. Also it's difficult to make a perfect circle and I'm not sure how to fasten it in place. Nice concept though and for thicker hair I'm sure it would be great.
