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 for thin hair

I have tried this over and over, but i have thin, layered hair and it will not work with it. The hair keeps falling out. This is not for me.

Worked well

This product worked nicely in my long, thin, blonde hair. It felt much more secure than a typical sock bun.

Just okay

So I was excited when I received this in my February box, but am not so excited about it after trying to use it. I have very fine hair so this just does not work for me in the way that it's intended. As a result, I've yet to use it/wear it. I may try using it for all of my hair, rather than half up/half down. I think this is/would be a great product but for those with thicker hair.

Not for thick hair
Purchased

I got the Wrap Up today and it is very cool. I have really thick hair so I will definitely only be able to do a half up. Hopefully it will hold up to regular use.

Bun

I've always wondered how to do those elegant looking buns. This product was simple enough for me to do to my own hair and I really like the way it looks.

Didn't work for me

This sounds like a good idea and was excited to try but just didn't work for me. I looked at several instructional videos but still, didn't work well for me.

good with short hair

I have really long hair so it did not work well with all my hair in it. but it worked great for a half up do.

Its okay.

I don't think you need this to do a good half up style but it helps if you have a lot of hair.

need to practice

Maybe it is just me but this did not come easily. Perhaps I need fuller hair or maybe I was just in a rush. Love the concept though.

Didn't stay put, could see the foam!

I had high hopes for this, since I like the way sock buns look, but often end up with frizzy, uneven buns (I have wavy hair). But, this wouldn't stay up! It was as if I couldn't get it close enough to my head, and the bun would just slump down. This is kind of helped by bobby pins, but the whole point is being able to do this without a ton of bobby pins. This happened even with only half of my hair in it, too. More problematic, was the fact that it didn't seem to make a full circle--the part where it comes together/overlaps when you fold it doesn't lock in place, and doesn't make a full circle. It looks more like a croissant, with your hair thinner where it comes together, and sometimes the foam peeks through there (and I have a LOT of hair).
