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.

This was impossible to use. Maybe it would work for me if my hair were shorter, thinner, or coarser in texture. Maybe.

The Half-Up
Sampled

I'm not a huge fan of the style that this hair tool produces. I also do not find it effective for my hair type.

Super fast hairstyle if you have long thick hair like I do. If your hair is too clean, it tends to slip and doesn't feel very secure. Sprits on Beach Waves hair spray, then use. Fun, Fast Style!

Not great
Sampled

It wasn't easy to use, and my hair kept slipping out of the bun or kept becoming loose. I wouldn't buy this or continue to use it.

Easy and Quick

I guess my hair is just right for it because I did not have issues like other reviewers. I actually like the look (to my suprise) and think its becoming one of my favorite hairstyles. I do have a couple flyaways but I think it adds to the look.

Not ideal for thick hair
Sampled

Just didn't work with my thick hair, even as a half-up. The opening that your hair is meant to be stuffed into just isn't very wide. Good in theory, I guess?

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.
