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.

Too loose
Sampled

I have long, moderately thick hair. While this tool was helpful for a very small portion of my hair, it was difficult to make it stay in place without bobbi pins.

I have really long and thick hair. I also have layers so it was really hard for me to make the bun, It kept falling apart. i will not be using this.

Confusing
Sampled

Not only was the Half-Up extremely confusing for me to use, once I got it figured out, my hair was so thin/fine that the Half-Up wouldn't stay in place properly. I wish it worked for me as I love the style it is supposed to create :(

My friend made me try their half up do-dad a few months ago because my hair is longer, but I wasn't impressed. I have thick hair with layers and it didn't hold for long. Bummer.

not easy at first
Sampled

This took me a few tries to get it right but after some mental strain and a prayer I got it right. Surprisingly this held all day and my curly thick hair was able to stay in one place all day. Hopefully next time it won't take me so long to situate on my head.

Pretty good
Sampled

I was really excited when I saw this in my June box because I am neither creative nor gifted when it comes to hair. I have fine, straight hair, and it can be difficult to style, as well. I definitely have to put my hair in a pony tail first, but it seems to work okay. I like it better than the sock bun technique!

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

Wow! This is amazing.

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!
