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.

Not for me. :)

I don't wear my hair in any of the styles this thing is supposed to help with. I gave it away though and my friend loves it!

works surprisingly well
Sampled

I didn't expect this to work at all, frankly. I have medium-thick, super straight, very slippery blonde hair that's about to my collarbone, and I can get it all up in this thing - not high, but down at the nape of my neck. Usually stuff like this falls right out. It looks a little odd because I have some shorter layers I can't quite get, but I'll keep playing with it.

Not the best for long hair
Sampled

Really difficult to use in long hair. I tried many times to use it when it first arrived however, I constantly had hairs falling out and it was very difficult to get all of the hair to stay in it. I will stick to the sock bun for now.

Not for me

I don't ever wear my hair half up. I have really long hair and I think a small bun in the middle of my head looks weird. I wish the product was large enough to use the way they show it on the package to put your hair in a low bun, but my hair is too long. It would be a great product for someone with shorter hair and the concept is really cool and works better than a sock bun.

Doesnt work
Sampled

The idea is good, but I could not get this thing to hold. When it did hold, the front of my hair would fall out.

just ok
Sampled

It was ok. it looks good at first but then thru out the day your hair constantly falls out so you have to keep redoing it or just give up.

Not Impressed

Maybe my hair is just too thick, but for some reason no matter how many times I tried I just couldn't get this Half-Up to work for me. This product is just simply not built for anyone with layered or thick hair.

Confusing
Sampled

I really had a hard time trying out this product. I've got a lot of layers , and it just didn't work. I will pass this on to a friend who has longer hair.
