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.

My hairs too thick.

Interesting product to find in my box. Did not work well with my thick curly hair.

I'm frustrated that Birchbox sent this product out. I see I am not the only one who could not get it to work. They should have let real women with different types of hair test doing it themselves before putting it in the box. I was excited to try it but highly disappointed when it did not work.

Doesn't work

We tried to use this on my daughter's hair and it didn't work at all. I can do a bun much easier and better without it.

Cheaply Made

I was excited when I received this and really wanted to love it. Unfortunately, I found it cheaply made, and difficult to use. It doesn't have the strength to secure anything. I would certainly go back to the drawing board with this product.

Confusing and difficult to use.

I tried this out a few times, and I couldn't seem to get it to look right. Maybe it's because I have fine hair, but you could see the product through my hair.

It was awkward to use. I'd rather just pull my hair half- up with a clip or bobby pins.

Not good for thick hair

Unfortunately, I couldn't use this because my hair is too thick. The Half Up wouldn't stay secure and just unraveled quickly.

Eh its okay...

This product is only ideal for people with non-layered hair and definitely only does half of your hair. I would like to try a full bun product if they have one. The half up bun maker just looked kind of odd on me i guess. My hair was constantly coming out, I could not even wrap it up because I have so many layers. Did not matter if I tried it with dry or wet hair. Needless to say I gave the product to my little sister. I like the idea of the product but it would be better to have the full bun maker I think personally.

Gave to my daughter but she didn't like it

I have short hair so I gave to my daughter who has long thick hair. We both tried to make it works but it would stay well nor could we get all the black covered. May have been just too big, though she has a lot of hair so was surprised.

Couldn't hold my hair

I have long hair and tried using this product with no success. It may work for women with shorter, thinner hair. Wouldn't recommend to anyone with long hair.
