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.

Sort of tricky to tuck in
Sampled

I like this in general. Hope with practice I will learn to use it better. You need to consider end preferred shape when you meet the ends using it. It really does not work for putting all hair in a bun. They should make one for that. It is very gentle alternative to a tight hair tie which can rip, tear and pull hair.

Weird
Sampled

This product seemed like a good idea, but it didn't work with my hair. It was hard to thread your hair into it yourself, then when I rolled it up the bottom of it showed through. My hair is layered and may not be the right length, but I found this to be clumsy and annoying.

Half up

after receiving this product in my burchbox. i had seen other products likes out in the market but had never bought. once i open the free one i received i attempted to use it. welll.... that was a mistake. i found this product hard to put in my hair, very hard annoying to taking and uncomfortable to wear.

Nice idea
Sampled

This is a great idea but when I try to make it into a bun it is like a 3/4 bun. Still cute and I will use it.

Didn't work.
Sampled

I've always thought I had fairly thin hair so first I tried a full low bun and there was NO way that was happening....so I tried a half up and kept trying less and less hair and just couldn't get it through until it was so little hair it just looked horrible. I kept trying for 30 minutes and no luck! Great idea, disappointing results.

Nice for some hair types
Sampled

I can see this product being nice for some hair types. I have very long/ coarse hair with layers (which made it difficult to use).

It takes some practice...but it does work and hold medium to thick hair.
