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.

Not good for layered hair
Sampled

My hair is layered since it is long and thick- this just turned my hair into a mess. Also, who does half-up-dos anyway? is this the early aughts?

Okay, not great
Sampled

First off, I have lots of fine hair, just a little past my shoulders. Once I figured out how to use it (it really didn't take that long, just read the included card), it worked well for a "half-up" style, just like it promised. However, I hardly ever wear my hair that way. Not so well for the low bun (maybe my hair is too long). I couldn't seem to fully cover it with my own hair, and it ended up looking awkward. I'll keep it as a last minute backup.

Didn't work for me
Sampled

I have trouble with hair tools like this--my hair is pretty long but easy to control, and I couldn't figure out how to use it properly. However, I also was never able to master the sock bun, so I might just not be cut out for these hair tools!

Cool product
Sampled

I thought this product was cool and a lot easier to use than a sock bun. I have never long thin hair so it didnt work with mine.

Didn't seem to work
Sampled

Seemed like a great concept but I couldn't get it to work right. Maybe if I had the one for a full-up do instead of a half-up?

I think I need more practice, as I'm not the best with these type of things.

The half up
Sampled

I tried this half up hair product and it didn't hold on my hair. I wanted to like it. But it wouldn't hold
