SARAHPOTEMPA 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.

Not that great
Sampled

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.

Not for me
Sampled

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.

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!

Doesn't work with super long hair
Sampled

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 .. :(

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).

It's ok
Sampled

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.

What a waste

I have chin length hair so this is a complete waste for me.

Way too difficult
Sampled

I was so excited to try this product. While long, my hair is pretty fine, so I thought it would be perfect for the half up. I can't get my hair through the hole! I tried quite a few times, but it's just not happening. So, fail.

Half-Up

My hair is in layers; so when I would try and get the product to the end to twist it up the half-up it ended up falling out of the product.
