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.

always wanted one

I've been wanted one like this for a long time. so I am very happy when I received one in my birchbox. but I am still in process of learning how to use this one. I think it runs a little small for my long hair. anyway, I will keep trying.

Love the concept
Sampled

This is a super useful tool. I have fine medium length hair and it was fairly easy to use, since I have layers, I had to use a lot of hairspray to hold it all in but once you get the hang of it, it is quite easy to use. I love it because I do equestrian sports and we always have to have a low bun and this makes the process a lot quicker!

I got the half up in my last months birchbox. It didn't work in my hair because I have a lot of shorter layers, but it looked really cute in my daughters hair! her hair is more one length. It was fairly easy to use (took me 2 tries).

Cute on some
Sampled

This product didn't work well with my long hair. I used it with on wet hair and let it dry, which made it very curly and pretty. The half up look is cute on some, but not my trend.

Interesting concept
Sampled

I am the type of person that usually sticks to hair ties, bobby pins, and hair products. I don't use many of the newer hair tools (like bump it). Although it was fun to play around with this, it would have been more useful if I could put all of my hair up into a bun. The half-up bun thing just looks a little weird and I don't see myself using it very often. It was easy to use and worked just like the photo's showed. I have blonde, medium/fine hair.

So cute!

Okay so here's the deal...you need to watch the video tutorial before you use this, people! Once you do, you'll know how to use this. I have long, thick hair and I used this tool to pull the top part of my hair up into a half-up. Love it!!

Not right for my hair

My hair is medium length and layered. I tried a few times and just couldn't get it to work right. It looked messy with stray strands falling out of the sides. The half up factor also didn't leave enough of my hair to properly cover the foam. I wanted it to work! But it didn't.

Not for thin hair
Sampled

This product has potential, but my hair is a little too thin/short for it to work. My hair is a little longer than my shoulders and I couldn't completely cover the hair tool with my hair. This would be great for those with who have long, thick hair.
