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.
wasn't very effective. it was easy for me to put my hair up with the tool, but hair kept falling out.2
I have relatively long hair. This product barley fits in my hair. It is too small and does not grasp in tight enough to actually be effective.1
I always have trouble with hair tools due to my thick hair. The low bun didn't work at all since my hair is too thick. I tried the half bun and it kind of worked, but the front came out messy and frumpy.1
This was a pleasant surprise for me in my December birchbox. I was excited to try the product as I have seen many products very similar to this, but I had not previously owned one. I have mid-length hair and found that this was very easy to use to create a cute and quick up-do look. I would also suggest using a few bobby pins to keep everything in place and would also think a cute ribbon or other cute clips would really complete the look!4
I liked the idea of this product but found it very difficult to obtain any kind of good result with long layered hair. Even though I don't have many layers in my hair it would just keep falling out and I have pretty thin hair and it still didn't seem to hold at all. This product was pretty disappointing :(1
I have fine hair so I thought this product would work for me, but I was wrong. It was hard to get your hair into the clip, and keep the hair fastened around the foam when rolling to create a bun. Save yourself the money and just use a traditional sock bun.1
This product was super fun! I was able to use it without a problem- it created the perfect half up half down bun!5
Okay, so I practiced a little bit more, and realized one important detail: I wasn't following the instructions I received with my Half-Up TO A TEE. Look at the pictures. You must pull your hair through exactly as pictured. You must roll it over, not under. I can only put up the top quarter of my extra long, relatively thick hair- not really "half". I do think that this "look" is better without bangs. I have bangs and something about it seems "off" to me. I like to put my hair in the half up, braid the remainder, and then pin the braid around the perimeter of the Half-Up.3
I was happy to get a hair accessory in my box but I'm having troubles keeping my layers to stay tight in this one.4
I loved the idea of the half-up, but did not like it once I tried using it. I don't have the thickest hair, so I could not get enough hair to keep a bun in place.2
