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.
This product is good for small half buns, and for those with thin hair. I have tried to make a full bun and it was not sturdy enough to support.
i've used a sock-bun and another donut-type styling tool before, and this is the easiest of them all. doesn't really work on shorter hair, but i suppose none of them would. definitely recommend!
I didn't have good luck with this. I have fine thin layered hair and I couldn't get it to work right.
For thinner hair, this works fine as a full up do but you run into the problem not being able to close the bun without the bottom looking a little uneven. All in all its been great to use, but you still almost always need bobby pins to secure it.
This was not a great product for me. I have thin shoulder length true tone copper hair. I receive the brown sample and with my hair being so thin it looked silly since I don't have enought to wrap around the tool.
That being said - I gave to my sister with dark thick mid back hair and it was too small to hold all of her hair - so it was a fail on both of our hairtypes.
I received this in my birchbox and I'm glad I did because I would have never otherwise thought to try it. It was easy to use and created a really nice bun. I have thick hair that falls below my shoulders and it was way to much for this size. At best I could get half of my hair in it. All the real testing had to be done on a friend with finer hair. Even though her hair is is equally as long it all fit in and went right up into a nice bun. She was more then happy get the Half-Up since there was no point in me keeping it. Since I have a job where I generally end up throwing my hair back I will definitely consider buying one if they offer a larger size.
This was very easy to use, and turned out a great bun. I did have to use a couple of bobby pins to hold the bottom in, but it was a lot of hair to get into this smaller version.
Great item to have in your hair care kit! Unfortunately my hair is quite long so it doesn't hold all of it, but it does work well on a half up do.
I have relatively long hair, past my shoulders, and this product couldn't hold them at all. Definitely a "no" for me.
I received this in my birchbox, and I was very happy with it! SO much better than using a sock! However, the instructions are not written clearly enough, but it is easy to figure out if you have used a sock before. Another thing, I have really long, medium-thick hair and I still felt like this was a little too thick for my hair to completely cover it to where there is no sign of it at all. However, my hair did cover it, but you can see the shape of the half-up in my hair.
