This worked very well for me.

I love this hair accessory! It worked very well for my fine hair. I have only used it for the half up style and love the way it looks. I've gotten compliments on it as well. People wondered what I did to my hair to get it to look that way. It didn't take me very long to figure how to use it either.

I wanted to love it but I do not

I was really excited to see this in my Birch Box and couldn't wait for my recently chopped hair to grow out just a little more so I could try it. Once that happened and I tried it, I was very disappointed. I thought I would love this new tool, but I find it rather hard to use. It is a little cumbersome and hard to grasp all the hair (maybe b/c I have fine hair?). Also it is hard to even out and pull the hair around so that your half up does not look lop sided and it's completely covered. Also like I said, my hair is fine and this didn't add the look for that much more volume. However it did feel pretty secure without any bobby pins.

it's ok
Purchased

I have long hair with layers, so it's kind of tricky to use this thing and get all my hair in it. It works for the most part, just takes some playing with to get it down perfect.

Much more complicated than a sock!

Save yourself the money and hassle, cut the cotes off a sock, roll into a donut and wrap your hand around. Ticker, easier to use, cheaper. This was very hard to fit my hair in, and I didn't like that it did not connect.

Not a fan

This half up was not exactly what i was expecting. It was difficult to use and would not stay put. I prefer using the bump-it, or just a sock to create the sock bun look.

Not For Me

I found this difficult to use and it slipped out of my hair. I have fine hair, and this just would not stay in place. It looked very odd - even when I got all of my hair into it as a low bun. I just did not care for this!

Not for my hair

I've not had any real luck getting my hair to anything but fall out. The directions are just pictures or diagrams with no words. Perhaps a lot of people can just figure things out by looking at pictures, but I need more explict intstructions. I am assuming I need to use bobby pins or something to help hold the hair in place, but no where does it indicate that this is indeed necessary.

Small buns, thin hair

This product is good for small half buns, and for those with thin hair. I have tried to make a full bun and it was not sturdy enough to support.
