Nice and simple!

This is actually a nice little tool! I think PPs that say it didn't work for them are actually not using it the right way which is what happened to me at the beginning and I was totally annoyed because I couldn't make an easy updo look perfect. I highly recommend checking out BB's YouTube video on this for some tips and you will see how you start getting better results after trying it a couple times. It works for me even when my hair is super straight and slippery, just give it another try!

Not so great

I was excited when I received this because I have layered long hair and thought it might actually work for my hair. Unfortunately, it didn't even fit a quarter of my (not thick) hair in the slot.

Disappointed

I was excited to try this thing and was pretty disappointed when I couldn't get it to work. My hair is not quite shoulder length and on the thin side, so I have never been able to get products like this to work. I imagine it might have worked if it were about half as long and thinner.

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.
