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.

My hair is way to thick and I couldnt even get it in the thing. It broke easily. I was really excited about it but now im just disappointed.

I really like this

This week, this Half-up has been in my hair 5 out of 7 days so far, I found it easy to use, I have it in as a low bun right now. I also did the actual half-up and got many complements on it. It's comfortable in my hair , it didn't give me a headache, like some styles (headbands etc.) I have medium length hair, it is on the thinner side, and I can see how this product might not work so well on thick curly hair.

Better for finer / less hair
Sampled

I have relatively fine, long hair and when I put all of my hair in it didn't look that great. With just half up, it seemed to work better. However, I think I'd rather just twist my hair and use a few bobby pins than fiddle with this product.

One thing I will say for it is that it's lighter and more comfortable than I expected. I've used one of those "donuts" before and I felt more like it was pulling on my hair. That may be due to the thinness of my hair, however.

Good Concept
Sampled

I think I could actually love this thing if I could figure it out. M y hair is very thin and fine and this is a great concept if I could just figure out how to get it to work. Hmm... Better instructions next time please!

I think this is a cute idea. I would prefer a larger one for a low bun though. It is easy enough to use.

This didn't work for me. Maybe I was not doing it right, but I couldn't make the thing stay.

I liked the concept..but I am on the fence about it.

I was excited to see this in my birchbox this month and gave it a shot right away. While I like how I can slide my hair in and roll it up, it doesn't stay very well. I would like to practice with it a little more and see if I can work it out. I usually like to do a whole bun and I use a donut for that which is pretty easy to use. I also have a darker blonde/light brown hair color and am worried that it would show under my hair because it is too light in color for me. I have a brown donut for my hair and you can't even tell it's in. I also know it is not meant for thicker hair. I have pretty fine hair. It would be nice if that was a snap closure to hold it shut after you have made the bun.

works perfect for my hair

I must have the perfect hair for this accessory. I was able to easily make both the low bun and the half up bun. Both styles looked great and held all day. Thank you Birchbox!!
