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.

A little intimidating to use

A little intimidating to use. I will need to practice at lot to be totally comfortable using it. I will probably use it for a full bun as my hair is mot that full.

does not work for my thick hair

My hair does not fit inside the slot to even start the bun. If I put too little the bun doesn't stay.

Strange

This was the strangest sample. What grown women wears a half bun? I had a hard time selling the idea to my 8 yearold!

Easy to use, classic style

I do not wear my hair pulled back often, but tried this item and found it very easy to use. I did a half up bun, looked nice.

Great idea didn't work for me

I was excited to try this product as I love wear my hair in a bun. It seamed easy to use and I thought it would be great for my thin hair. It just couldn't get it to work as a half bun or full bun with my hair (shoulder length)

Life changing, maybe!

I'm asian, and my hair is super thin, in addition to being stick straight. I wasn't excited to see this product in my box cause I thought for sure it wouldn't work! I've never done a sock bun before in my life because my hair is so slippery and you would definitely be able to see the sock or "doughnut" because I have so little hair. I tried it one day though just out of curiosity and all of my hair was able to fit through the opening and it was super easy to put my hair in a "sock bun" using this product! Awesome. If it didn't work for you and you have straight and slippery hair like me, consider curling your hair first or waiting til your hair is a little dirty to it can grip better!

A Nice Surprise
Sampled

I love to receive hair products in my box, so I was super excited about this. Luckily, they got it right and it came in blonde. I've only used it once so far but it worked pretty well. I think I will get better with practice. It did stay in my hair, but I do have very fine, straight hair. I'm not sure this would work well for those with thick hair. The only problem I had is my hair is very long but lightly layered on the top and it did make it tricky to use. I did get it, though! If after several uses, I decide I like it enough I may get the regular wrap up. This item alone was worth the price of the box :)

Cool Hair Accessorie

I really enjoyed this hair tool. I have very fine hair so it's hard for it to go up and stay, but this really seemed to keep my hair back and styled. The nude color blended well in my darker blonde hair.
