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.

WAY easier than other tools i've used

i've used a sock-bun and another donut-type styling tool before, and this is the easiest of them all. doesn't really work on shorter hair, but i suppose none of them would. definitely recommend!

Not for me

I didn't have good luck with this. I have fine thin layered hair and I couldn't get it to work right.

great for thinner hair full up-dos

For thinner hair, this works fine as a full up do but you run into the problem not being able to close the bun without the bottom looking a little uneven. All in all its been great to use, but you still almost always need bobby pins to secure it.
