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 really wanted this to work. I was excited when I saw it. I have thick long layered hair. I tried and tried, and couldn't get it to work. I am not very good with these type of things, so perhaps it was just me. I haven't given up all together, but for now it's not going to be attempted.2
I had a hard time getting it to look right with all my layers. I will keep working on it though.3
This product is completely useless to me. I have thick, coarse hair, and the only way I can semi get this product to work is to take the very top layer of my hair and pull it through. Instead of being "half up" it's more like one sixteenth up. You must have superfine /shorter hair for this to work. Total disappointment.1
The product was fairly easy to use. The only problem I had was some of my layers fell out. I found that the product worked best when I pulled my hair back in a pony tail then followed the direction on the package.3
I am not very hair savvy but I was excited to used the product. I couldn't even figure out how to get my hair in it. I tried both all my hair and the half up look. My hair is too fine and smooth to get all the hair and to keep it there.1
I purchased something similar to the "Half Up" previously and could not get it to work. This was the first item I tried when I opened my Birchbox. I got my hair up (1/3 of it) into the bun on my very first try - with no mirror!!! It was so easy! I have very long, thick, layered hair so I know I won't be able to get all of my hair in it to make a full bun but the product works great and my hair looks really cute!4
I was excited when I saw this because I thought it would work really well, but it didn't. My hair was much too thick for it to hold in a bun, and even trying to put it 1/2 up was difficult.2
Maybe I'm not trendy enough, but I don't know if I want a half bun? It works okay for a low bun but maybe not for my type of hair. I have long, layered hair and the half-up didn't seem equipped to handle it.2
I was excited to try this tool, but I have way too much hair for this. My hair is long and thick and it did not work very well at all. I bet it would be perfect for shorter and fine hair!2
I have a waist length fine hair-- this product is an absolutely unnecessary to me. I can do any of the hair style similar to this tool with just my hand and a rubber band. This can't even hold my extra long hair .. :(2
