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 loved the sock bun trend but everytime I wore my hair that way my husband just would politely tell me it wasn't his favorite. We took an airplane ride to NYC and he kept telling me how much better he liked "this thing". So I'll be using it! I love to put my hair up!5
I have gotten used to how this product works and may use it sometimes. My hair is long and thick so I can't really put too much hair in it.2
I'd never heard of anything like this before, but it was super easy to use and doesn't pinch, which is amazing. I put it in with damp hair, so I'm hoping it does a nice, comfortable job of providing some curling action while it dries. Cool product!
(I only put that I wouldn't purchase this because I believe this is the full-sized version. I don't believe I'd need more than one of these at any given time...)
I get the concept, but this product wasn't for me. My hair is thin and layered, so the product showed through when I tried to use it. It looked ridiculous in my hair. I see it working for others, but I would never buy it.1
I have thin hair, just above my shoulders, and I couldn't get this product to work for me without seeing the foam through the bun. It just didn't work for me at all. I gave it to a friend with thicker and longer hair, just past her shoulders, and she loves it. Its easy to use, makes a cute bun, and stays put for hours. The only thing she didn't like was that you have to do a have up bun or a bun at the nape of your neck, its not very easy to put a full bun anywhere higher.3
The product did not work for my hair. It was too weak to hold my hair up. Even when I tried to use bobby pins, I failed miserably.1
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.1
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.4
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.5
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.1
