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 my hair
Sampled

I have layers in my hair and I found this product does not work well with layers. Everytime I would pull my hair through, all of my top layer would fall right out of it. I could see it working, but not for people who have layers.

I wasn't a huge fan of this product. I have something similar but it's easier to use

I thought this product had a great idea behind it but it didn't quite hit the mark. I remember snap versions of these in the late 90's and this seems like a more simplified version except the piece was too large for my hair to cover. Like other reviews are saying, I do not have much hair and this still was not large enough to get my hair in a low bun.

Difficult to use
Sampled

I have long, layered hair and this product did not work with my hair type. The shorter layers kept slipping out and the length of my hair made the bun look sloppy and unfinished - it would only close to a 3/4 bun rather than a full bun as pictured. Might be cute for shorter hair, though!

Disappointed

I was not really thrilled with this product. My hair is really dark brown and I received a very light brown color which made any hairdo look unnatural. This product just isn't something that I am interested it or that I would use.

I do not like this thing. The instructions were not helpful. I couldn't ever get it to work.

I had no clue what this was when I first looked at it but once I read the directions and tried it on, I LOVED IT! I use it every evening!

Interesting..

Im not very talented at using these types of things so I got my mom to do it for me. We played around with it for a little while and I could see using it sometimes but I wouldn't ever buy one because my hair was just too long for it.

This is a neat conceot however it did not work with my fine layered hair. Most of my haIR would fall out of it before i could roll it up

This product did exactly what it was supposed to do. I have always loved the sock bun look, but I could never get it exactly right. This was so easy to use, and the only thing I've found that will work for my hair!
