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.

With my naturally curly hair this product was kind of a pain.

Wow! This is amazing.
Sampled

My super-fine straight hair has a hard time with most hair accessories, so I was very surprised to see the lovely, messy low bun I achieved with this tool. This is going to be great for wearing at work...I think I will likely grab a spare!

Not for Me
Sampled

I have shoulder length hair which is not overly thick and I could not get this thing to stay in. It might work better if you have short or very fine hair, or even for a child. But to be honest..who wears their hair in a half up bun? Totally reminds me of the "princess style" I used to have to do for my daughter's dance recitals. This product is not for me.

Works with silky hair

My hair is very silky (curse and a blessing) but I could never do the sock bun trend but this Half Up works great. My hair is some what short and it was perfect.

Surprisingly effective for Asian hair
Sampled

I was skeptical before trying this - most hair accessories really only work for fine, lightweight hair that can hold a curl. My hair is stubbornly straight, slippery, and heavy. It took a moment to figure out how to stretch the sides apart (front and back, not straight out from each other), but it worked. I was able to put my hair up in a passably neat mini-bun for work, which has stayed without giving me a headache of pulling on my scalp. Unfortunately, it doesn't give me the "low bun" as pictured with all of my hair, but I didn't really expect it to either. Would recommend for sure though.
