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.

Surpisingly easy and functional!

I have very thick wavy hair, so I didn't think it would work for me, but it was very easy to pull off a cute half up hairstyle. I would love if they produced bigger ones so I could put all my hair up!

Didn't work for my hair
Sampled

This might work on courser hair that does not have any layers, but for my fine layered hair it didn't work for half-up or whole up, I guess you could do a really isolated back of the top of the head top-knot, but I am not interested in that look.

Cool updo

This is neat for doing a cool half-updo style, my hair is a little too thick for it though.

I recently cut my hair short so this product doesn't really work on me. Even if I have long hair, I don't think the tool will work well either.

Discovery!

Until i used it, i didn't know what is it, or anything. I regularly use it now and receive lots of compliment for my perfect bun.
After this one, i bought another one from local store, it's less bulky and suitable for looser bun.

I will say no
Sampled

This half up is a whole NO. I have long thick hair and try as hard as I could I couldn't get this thing to hold my hair and stay up. It just kept rolling back down. I can wrap and put my hair in a bun using absolutely nothing to hold it and it will stay in all day. I have to say I wont be buying this.

the half up
Sampled

Doesn't really work well with curly hair. Had to really shove my hair to get into it. Maybe if if straightened my hair first it would work better. I would have rather gotten a full one than a half one.

What is this contraption?!
Sampled

The half-up is useless. It didn't work with my medium length, wavy hair. It grabbed a few strands and then the rest of my hair would fall out of it--didn't produce a bun.
