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.

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.

Not really a style i like
Sampled

I got this product and i wish it was for a full "sock" bun. I do not like the style of a half up bun and it did not work for a low bun on my hair. I have fairly long hair but it is not too thick and it was too much hair for a low bun. I think the idea is good but it is just not really my style.

Super easy to use! I've been trying to do the "sock bun" thing for a while, but my hair is too long. This worked wonders the first time I put it in!

Couldn't figure it out
Sampled

I have long, thin hair and I could not figure this out. Half up my hair won't cover the whole thing and I can't get all my hair in it for a low bun.

This product was confusing to use. I don't have enough hair to make for this type of product effective. Instructions were not useful.

Doesn't work well with layers
Sampled

I love the idea of this product but I have mid-shoulder length hair and many layers so it didn't keep the layers in at all :(
