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.

Not for thick hair

I got this as part of my sample box. I got the tan one which is perfect since my hair is blonde. It worked well. I loved the bun it created. The only problem is my hair is so thick that I could only use 1/4 of the amount I would normally. I know it is for half the amount of hair but I had to use half of the half up part.

Great Product
Purchased

I really like the WRAP...no bobby pins, yes please! I only wish I got it in black instead of brown, but that's on me. Having this product is so great, I can have a cute bun and be out the door in a minute, love it!

Not for thick hair

My hair was too thick to fit it all into one bun, but I tried it with half of my hair and it was pretty cute. It'd probably work just fine if you have thinner hair.

Didn't hold up

Maybe my hair is too thin for this, but this product kept slipping out and wouldn't stay in the bun shape.

Easy to use

I found this product easy to use. Took a few tries but once I got the hang of it it looked cute.

Not my favorite

I found this product was difficult to use. The beige color was not great for blonde hair. The clasp was a bit difficult to open but the greatest problem was with securing the clip in place. I would definitely need to use bobby pins if I was to rock this look for a night out.

not useful

I have thick short hair. Pretty useless for me. Sadly I won't benefit from it. But the concept seems cool.

A little intimidating to use

A little intimidating to use. I will need to practice at lot to be totally comfortable using it. I will probably use it for a full bun as my hair is mot that full.

does not work for my thick hair

My hair does not fit inside the slot to even start the bun. If I put too little the bun doesn't stay.

Strange
Sampled

This was the strangest sample. What grown women wears a half bun? I had a hard time selling the idea to my 8 yearold!
