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.

Fun

This is a fun little product. I still haven't mastered it though.

This is a nice little tool. I still haven't totally gotten the hang of it yet though.

Fun but unecessary
Sampled

This seemed like a neat idea but I don't really struggle to make a bun on my own so I don't know that it is really necessary. I have very thick hair so I could only put a small portion of my hair in the device. I also have layers which added an extra challenge. I ended up pulling a portion of my hair back with a ponytail and then sliding the pony through the middle before wrapping. When I tried this without the pony first, my hair just fell out of the thing completely. I never achieved a full perfect bun but I liked the look of the 3/4 bun it created. it was a nice change but nothing I would seek out.

Updo in 10 minutes or less

I've used this product to do my own hair for 2 weddings now and I absolutely love it. I have short hair and I used this to tie my hair back in a bun at the base of my neck. It was super easy to use and didn't move all night!
I bought a few little hair accessories (flowers) to add to the bun and hide the little part of this product that was showing, and it was fabulous. No more paying a stylist for an updo and no more pulling out 100 bobby pins at the end of the night!

Hard to put your hair up with this. Doesn't hold as well as you would hope.

Cool concept, just didn't work with my long, fine hair. Tried to make it work a few times, but it just wasn't happening.

My hair is too soft for this product. I tried it, but it just fell out and didn't hold at all.

The Half-Up
Sampled

I did not use this product because my hair is too short for it to work effectively. I half-heartedly tried to put it in my daughter's hair and I couldn't get her hair in the slot, but i didn't try too hard. The idea of a bun seems so old fashioned to me.

Maybe I'm just incompetent, but I couldn't get this to work.

I have thick hair and a long bob and that may have been the problem, but I couldn't get the half-up to work with my hair. I followed the instructions, but my hair was too thick for the slot and possibly too short (?) to cover the whole piece once it was rolled into a bun.

Worthless

This product did not work at all for me. It was flimsy & ugly. I absolutely hated it! Worst sample ever!!
