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.

I'm sure it's a great product, for someone other than me

I admit I am challenged when it comes to hair styling. I have two styles - ponytail or no ponytail. I was excited to try this but ended up just making a mess instead of the smooth bun. Maybe my hair is too thin for this.

Not for thick hair

I don't have thick hair but I have long hair and this made for difficult use. Love the easy concept but don't foresee myself using this product except for in the house.

Easy to use once you figure it out

I really liked this product...until my puppy tore the foam off! And I had just figured out how to bend the tool open to get my hair inside to roll. My hair is layered, so I couldn't get a tight bun, but that was ok, I liked how my buns turned out!

Works for half my hair

I have long hair and it's a little fine. It did work with the top half of my hair but when I tried it on all of my hair I couldn't get it to stay in.

Showed through hair

This wouldn't keep my hair in place and kept showing through. I have thick hair so wouldn't think this would happen.

Great idea but...

...I have fine, blonde hair but a ton of it. Even only using half of my hair in the product it would not hold all of the hair. I tried it on a handful of my hair (which would equate to a "quarter up" and it worked great. If I had less hair I would love this product, unfortunately, I cannot use it.

Good While it Lasted

The bun tightly each time. However, the tool broke within two weeks. As i was trying to shape the bun, i bent the tool a little too much and it broke.

meh

I have long, thin, curly hair. when I tried this product, I thought I would be able easy to get my hair through it but I wasn't successful in doing so. The 1/2 up is definitely designed for short (shoulder length) hair.

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!
