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 good for really long hair
Sampled

I have really long hair and was actually able to use this okay, but it took a lot of tries and tweaking. Also, the half-up style looks really silly with my long straight hair. I'd be interested in trying the full-size version, but probably not enough to actually purchase it. The foam also feels cheap and when I take it out there's a lot of hair stuck wrapped around it.

Not even sure how to use this...
Sampled

I looked at it and the directions and just didn't really get. Also, the full size purchase price is way too high.

If you like buns, it works
Sampled

This product was easy to use and worked. Personally, I don't wear buns so I won't be getting much use of this.

Very Neat!
Sampled

What a neat item - I'm tempted to purchase the full sized one. Surprisingly easy to use - better than the hair donuts!

good
Sampled

It works pretty well. I have layers so I had to pull it down to only the shortest one but it looked pretty good. It did show a little on the bottom and my hair has blond and brown in it so it was hard to hide, but I'll give it a few more tries.

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.
