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.

Not for me

My hair is very thin and this just didn't really work out well for me.

Couldn't get it to work with my hair
Sampled

Sadly it just kept slipping out. I tried looking up tutorials on youtube, but I just think this wasn't made for my hair. I even saturated my hair in hairspray to make it more tacky, but alas I ended up giving up. It's too large and the material just slides on my semi normal hair.

Frizz Machine

I'll start off by saying that the half-up is good for creating waves overnight. However, I did find that image my hair (especially the ends) look really frizzy/overly teased. Perhaps because my hair naturally waves, it and the half-up don't play nice without a good brushing afterwards.

It's a great concept. I just wish it would work for a full up do better.

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.
