Not what I expected

I was super excited to receive this, but when I tried to use it the excitement dissipated. I tried using it for half ups and had a very difficult time getting my hair to cover the black material... and I have a TON of hair. Never got it to work right and ended up tossing it.

Loved it but will probably need the regular size

Very easy to use! Not sure if I liked the half up style but after trying I will be purchasing the full size as I have longer thicker hair.

Didn't quite work well

It didn't stay on well, maybe my hair is too thin but I couldn't get it to stay on properly. It just looked too messy.

Fail for me

I really wish this would have worked for me cause I really wanted to try the half up style..but unfortunately it did not. I am not sure if it is because my hair is too long or too fine but in just kept sliding off. I played around with it for 20 minutes and then gave up.

like the concept - execution not so much

My hair is a bit too short for this product but I absolutely love the concept. I tried it on a friend with longer hair and with a little more finagling it came out great. the only downside is it slipped out of her hair rather quickly as the day went on. WAY easier than using a sock.

I love this!

I have shoulder length hair and I was able to achieve a wonderful bun for the first time ever. With a little patience and practice it makes for a very polished look.

Not Great for Fine Hair

My hair is definitely too fine for the "sock bun"--so I was excited to receive this product in my monthly box. The first couple times it seemed to work like a gem...not I'm experiencing it harder to have a full-proof bun. You definitely need 1 bobby pin.

Love it

This is even easier to use than a sock bun and pulls your hair up super tight with no worries of it falling out during they day - must have for and easy morning up do when you don't have time to wash and blow dry your hair.

I received this in my birchbox. This item may work great on some hair, however, it just didnt work well for mine. I have waste length hair that is very fine and it was hard to get my hair wrapped all the way up and still have it look decent. I tried this once and won't try it again. IT probably works good on shoulder to bra length hair.

Huh?

Could not quite figure this one out. Do not know if because my hair is too long or too fine. Maybe it requires an extra pair of hands?
