SARAHPOTEMPA 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.

Fun and innovative

I loved this. I have thick wavy hair that never really looks right "Half Up," but this fun little tool holds it perfectly for a different look.

Eh

This worked but the nude color was kind of gross and it didn't seem to be materially different than using a normal hair elastic.

Would like a full size for thick hair
Sampled

I have very thick hair, so this product wasn't exactly tailored to me.
I thought it was easy to use and seemed to hold well. I would love to see this in a full size version so that girls with thick hair could use it-- I know I would buy one!

Did not work on my chin-length hair
Sampled

I think my hair is too short for this product, it's chin-length with layers cut into it, so I don't feel comfortable reviewing its general efficacy. However, I've tried a similar tool years ago when I had longer hair. It looked identical, but didn't work well as it didn't provide a strong enough hold to keep my hair up. Would love to try out other hair accessories in the future!

Doesn't work well with thick hair. Good for my daughter's hair.

UPS AND DOWNS
Sampled

I was thrilled to get a big brown...uh...not sure...in my BB, and once I found out what it was I was thrilled...I quickly opened it up and to my dismay, found out that I didn't have long enough hair(my hair is past my shoulders) for it to all hold in place, and I guess I don't have enough hair to cover the ugly brown foam that you're supposed to pull your hair over. I have a lot of hair, and this was ineffective and a disappointment as i was so excited about it.

Not easy to use
Sampled

I have a good amount of hair and like putting my hair in a bun, but this product was not easy to use and looked unnatural and my hair didn't cover it completely, no matter what I tried. I wouldn't recommend it.

Good concept, bad product
Sampled

The concept of this device is good, however it did not work for my hair. I have long, relatively thick hair with fine texture. My hair kept slipping out of it....it's also kind of layered and I found that the layers really slip through it. Overall, not an effective product.

weird

I like sock buns, but the half up reminds me of a donut and it isn't for me.

If never seen it before. With practice I think it'd be super cute
