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.
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
Great wear in hair, easy to use. Very fashionable and trendy for buns5
I have very long, thick, coarse hair with layering throughout. I was hopeful (though skeptical based on past experience with similar products) when I saw this product in my Birchbox, as I wear my hair in a bun almost daily. This product did not work at all for me, I think due to my hair length and thickness. Even if I had shorter, fine hair, thought, I think anyone with layers will have a tough time getting any use out of this product. The product itself seems okay, but a bit flimsy. Not sure who would be able to use this with success--maybe people with medium length to short fine/thin hair (although a quick scan of other reviews proves that people with that hair type were also unsatisfied).1
I was able to get pretty much all my medium length hair in the clip, but I had a hard time covering the ends, and I wasn't sure if it was better when rolled under or over. I also would have prefered it in brown instead of black. A big plus is that it did stay in place all day. I will try it again and see if it grows on me.3
