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.

Not for me

The half up is easy enough to use, but it doesn't feel very secure on my head. I'm not sure that a half bun is a good look for me anyway. Maybe a low bun would be cute, but my hair is much too thick to try.

Takes some practice
Sampled

My first few tries with this weren't too successful, but I got the hang of it after a while. It's a sort of cute style, but I can't imagine using it that often. The package suggests that you could use it to make a low bun but my hair is way too long--it would never fit.

Not for fine hair
Sampled

I have long, layered, fine hair. The idea of this product got me so excited when I saw it. But I could not figure out how to use it correctly. My hair kept sliding out, and the layers would not stay in place. I wanted it to work so badly!!! If your hair is all one length, it probably works better. I'm so sad!!

SARAHPOTEMPA The HALF-UPâ„¢

Well... I did give this a try with no success. I don't get it. Maybe my shoulder length layered hair is not the right style for it. Will try again after watching some tutorials. Would be helpful if some instructions were included as the pictures on the package do nothing for me.

Not the greatest

I have relatively fine hair, and this product really did not work for me at all. It also doesn't seem like it would be sturdy enough to last for more than a couple of uses.

OK

This was an ok product. It didnt work specifically well with my hair type. My hair is thick, long and layered. Layered pieces were hanging out and it was difficult to work with. I believe that women with thinner hair would have a much better experience using this item.

Sort of tricky to tuck in
Sampled

I like this in general. Hope with practice I will learn to use it better. You need to consider end preferred shape when you meet the ends using it. It really does not work for putting all hair in a bun. They should make one for that. It is very gentle alternative to a tight hair tie which can rip, tear and pull hair.
