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 thick hair and this thing would not hold even half of it. Definitely nothing I can use; but I will be giving it to my sister in law who has fine hair and I'm sure she can use it.1
obviously. it was simple enough to use, but my hair is too short, and sticks out of it at the bottom.2
I'm a big fan of big, poofy sock buns, and this product is an okay-ish replacement. I have very thin hair, and it does hold it quite well. I was able to use it to make a full bun, and it was laughably small! It didn't require any bobby pins to hold up, though!
It's nice because it is very flexible and holds it shape well, but a sock tends to work fine for me.
My hair is stick straight regardless of whether or not I blow dry it our or straightening it. No volumizing products in the world have really ever proved successful other than Oribe products (which are essentially Ambrosia in my book). I wouldn't call my hair fine or thick, and it's never been colored or processed so it's shiny and slick and tends to fall out of most updos. Curls last for about 10 seconds after the hot rollers are out.... you get the picture. Pretty much my hair would look identical before or after a nuclear fallout. So, I was excited to get this in my box, hoping that I could add a new look to my plane Jane hair. Overall this product just fell flat.
It did not do a very good job of pinching closed to secure the hair while you slide the device to the bottom before rolling it up. My hair kept falling out, or half of it would. Maybe it's because of the above mentioned problem that my hair is shiny and slick? Or maybe this works better for girls with thicker hair... who knows? However, I can't imagine it working that well for girls with thick hair because I almost felt like I was bending it too much just to slide my hair through the opening. It also almost needed to be longer, so I could wrap more hair around a greater surface area, leading to a longer section to make up the bun portion. Once I finally got it to go in and stay secure without looking insane, I really liked it. . . but I only felt like it was staying in because of happy thoughts or magic.
This looked like something from an informercial. I gamely gave using it a shot, although I never style my hair in a bun, but my hair isn't long enough (or maybe it's not thick enough) to cover the "Half Up".1
not a fan of the half up look. if the produc was bigger it would be better to put all my hair up2
I have long, thinck hair with layers. This product did not work for me at all1
This was akward to use and didn't work with my long hair. Nice concept though.3
My hair is short and this item doesn't work for me I gave it to a friend with long hair.1
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.1
