SARAHPOTEMPA 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.

I have fine, medium length hair and this product did not work well at all. I'm not new to doing things with my hair and I found this product clumsy to use. It may have turned out differently if my layers were cut longer or if my overall hair length was longer, but this is a definite no-go for me. I'm pretty disappointed with the product.

Works well with thin-ish hair
Sampled

I have long hair, but it is somewhat thin. I was able to use this product for a low bun, and it stayed in all day, even with a walk on the (windy) Central CA beach. I will use it again for sure, but probably not for a "half-up". I am 42, and I felt like that would be better suited for my 12-yo daughter.

I had never tried anything like this before. I'm pretty new to doing anything different to my hair but I LOVED it! It was relatively easy to use and since my hair is very fine, I was able to roll all my hair into a low bun.

At this point, if you can't manage to create your own bun without added help/tools... I don't know. I'm worried for you. What I can say is that this will not help. I thought it was hard to maneuver and I was scared I would just bend it in half. I also wasn't a fan of the finished style. If you need something sleek and polished, I would buy this. Otherwise... ehh.

OK

I like the idea of this hair accessory but I found it difficult to make the hairstyle feel secure. I have very long hair so maybe that was part of the problem or maybe I will get better with practice but I felt like it could fall out at any moment.

This product was not for me! I have thick hair and it didn't work well.

Didn't work at all

This product didn't work for me- I had too much hair, even with only half of it.

It was ok

I have tried it a few times and it is definitely not easy, well not easy enough to look as good as the pictures do. I am going to keep trying it to see if I can get it to work.

I didn't like this product - if it worked for the whole head to make one large bun for long hair I would have enjoyed it more.

Impossible
Sampled

As a bun lover, I was excited to receive this product. However, opening the tool was difficult. I could barely pull my hair through to even start using it. Then, once you pull your hair through, it's basically impossible to get the front of your hair to stay neat when you're supposed the roll your hair in the tool. It all just didn't make sense and was worthless.
