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 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
I love it so much I got two. Now I can put my hair in pigtail buns.5
The instructions made it look pretty easy but I just couldnt get a handle on it. I have fine, thin hair and it kept falling out. Youre supposed to slide your hair through the opening, and it just turned into a mess whatever I tried.1
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.5
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.3
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!
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!1
