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.

Doesn't work with shorter hair
Sampled

I have shoulder-length hair, and this product did not seem to work. Every time I tried to flip my hair up into a bun, as instructed, my hair would fall back out.

Nifty!
Sampled

When I pulled this out of my box, I was like .. huhh? But I tried it out and found it surprisingly easy to use. It makes my hair look waaay better than when I try to do a bun myself. It's definitely become my go-to tool.

Not pleased
Sampled

This did not work on my hair, which is thick and a little past shoulder length. Even an attempt at a "half up" style wasn't effective. I'm sure someone with thinner hair could use this product, but even with hair that isn't super thick, it did not work at all.

Great idea (for thick hair)
Sampled

I wear my hair half up all the time and was so excited to see this product. Unfortunately my hair (although very long and not really thin) was not enough to cover the half up sponge. I could tell that otherwise it would have been great. I'd suggest this company make a few more sizes of this product as it's a fantastic idea!!!

Give it a few tries
Sampled

At first this seemed cumbersome to use but after a few tries, I have mastered it. I use it to put my short (but thick) hair up then I secure the hairs with bobby pins to hide the half up.

I like a sock bun better!
Sampled

I am a fan of the sock bun (and similar sock bun type tools) and i found this was harder to use and didn't produce as pretty and round of a bun.

Straight Short Hair
Sampled

This just didn't work with my length of hair (shoulder length) and hair type (fine, straight). I really like the idea as the sock bun is really popular right now but I think it only works if you have thick hair.

half-up disappointment
Sampled

I really had hoped that this product would work well but it did not. I tried it on my shoulder length hair, on my sisters thin long hair, it didn't work on anyone's hair that I tried.
