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.

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.

THICK HAIR NOT A PROBLEM
Sampled

I have a thick amount of hair underneath and regular clip plus bobby pins will not hold the beast but putting the top half in half up and folding the back part in a clip looks marvelous! easy pease lemon squeezy!

Not for long hair
Sampled

My hair is long and even if I use just a little portion of my hair, it wraps up into a big heavy bun. Good idea, just not for long hair or someone with a lot of hair

cool idea

i found this tool easy to use. my hair isnt super thick but i think probably thicker than most and i found that it worked best with doing it half up vs the all of my hair. im excited to play with it a little more!

Meh...

I was pretty excited to find this product in my Birchbox this month! I love trying out new styling tools. I guess my "just below the shoulder" length hair is not quite enough for this particular tool. I am growing my hair out, so maybe I'll give it another try in a few months...

Hard to use
Sampled

When I curled the device up with my hair in it (exactly as the instructions said) it just kind of... flopped there. Nothing really held it up. Perhaps it would be better if it was mesh-like so you could put bobby pins through it to hold it up.

I have no idea how to use this thing. If you have layered hair it doesnt work.

Not for me
Sampled

I really wanted to love this product since I am always pinning my hair back with a claw clip in the half-up do. But, with my thick, layered hair it just didn't work. I tried at least 10 times (with very sore arms afterwards), determined to get it to work. Although it was very secure with what it did hold, most of hair didn't fit even if I tried smaller amounts of hair. Will have to try something else....

not a good product

it's junk. once it gets bent around the first time, it is impossible to straighten out.

My hair is too short to try this. I looks like a great idea, but it wouldn't work for me!
