Pretty useless:(

I wanted to be excited for this, because my free hand skills for making buns is horrible, but this was an epic fail! I don't know if it's because my hair is too think or it's just too weak. Never really stayed, sagged, didn't please my needs.

not for me

I dont have the right kind of hair for this. I have thicker layered and somewhat textured hair. Might be nice for someone else

Didn't work for medium layered hair

I have thicker, smooth, medium-length hair, and I couldn't make this work for me. It was too hard to fiddle with to get my hair up, and it didn't stay up for long.

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.
