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.

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!

It didn't work for me
Sampled

Perhaps I just don't know how to use this product properly but I tried to follow the instructions and my hair kept falling out. After several tries I managed to get a pseudo bun but the spongy covering was difficult to cover with my hair and the bun did not feel like it would stay. Overall it was frustrating. Maybe my hair is too thick and this might work for someone else.

Not a fan

This product did not work well with my hair. I have short hair (chin length) and found this difficult to use.

My entire head's worth of baby fine hair couldn't support the weight of this piece or conceal it. No go here.

Neat... sorta
Sampled

It worked for me once, then I couldn't get it work again. It really depends on the texture of your hair on a given day. It's a neat idea, but I fought it would be more like the "slap bracelet" type.

Not for me
Sampled

I have very thick, very long hair and I could not get this product to work for me. It would not hold my hair in the same shape without falling out. I can see how this product would work for someone with a different hair type, but for me it did not work.
