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.

LOVE! Perfect for my hair.
Sampled

I love this, its perfect for my hair, easy to use, and doesn't hurt my hair like other methods of putting it in a bun.

not for long hair
Sampled

while I LOVE the concept of this product it doesn't work for us long hair girls. I have fine hair but a ton of it and no matter how little of a section of hair I used it couldn't get the wrap to work. Even if I took the very top section of my hair all of my layers would fall out so I was constantly fighting hair to stay smooth. I'll stick to using hairspray and bobbypins but this might be great for medium length hair with very little layers.

Tough to master for the unskilled
Sampled

In the interest of full disclosure, I am a TOTAL KLUTZ when it comes to hair. Not only that but I have very fine, thin hair that can be impossible to manage. My hair is keratin treated, which does help. I just could not figure out how to use this tool. Everything I tried made me look silly and just drew attention to how thin my hair is. I am sure the product would work well with normal to thick hair, but just not practical for all types of hair, or for those with little to no styling skills.

Cool idea

Cool idea and would be cute on people with thin hair. It was impossible for me to put even half of my hair in this to make it work.

Works Great!
Sampled

At first, I thought what the heck is this, but after reading the simple instructions It worked great in my daughters long hair. I'm not too sure I could do it by myself, but easy to use on someone else.

I love the concept, but I don't have enough hair to use it, I'm gifting I to someone.

Didn't work for medium length hair

I think my hair was too short for this product. Looked weird and didn't work for me.

I was excited to try this. So far I haven't had success w/ doing it correctly, but looking at the picture of the girl using one as, 'The trend to watch for' was hilarious! She looks like a Gladiator w/ a little bun on top and the rest of her hair down. I doubt this will be a trend this season. I will keep trying because my hair is long and I love having it up.

Fun, but feels a little flimsy
Sampled

I liked this product in general, but I think it felt a little flimsy and like it will wear out with a few uses.

Not for thick hair
Sampled

I don't feel like I need a product to style my hair in a low bun & it wasn't very effective for styling on top because my hair is thick and pieces kept falling out of the slot. However, I think this would probably be a really good product for someone with thinner hair!
