Birchbox Breakdown

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.

How to Use

Pull your hair into a half-ponytail and slide the tip of pony through the opening of The Half Up. Next, roll it up to the base of the ponytail, fold the flexible ends into a round bun, and voilá——an instantly chic ’'do.

Huh? Confused

I have no clue how to use this thing... Plus it's a magnet for lint, dust, everything thing.

Huge Disappointment
Sampled

I'm not very creative with my hair styling, so I thought this would help give me some variety. While I got variety, I would never want to be seen in public looking the way I did. Didn't hold my hair well and it just looked like a pathetic, messy bun.

Too small not needed
Sampled

This was too small for my thick hair. Couldn't use it and don't really use these types of hair accessories. It's ok maybe for someone with thin hair

Not for me
Sampled

The opening was too skinny for my hair to go through and the hairs that did get in there were broken off because of this thing.

Not for thin hair
Sampled

I have very fine light brown hair. I received a black sample in my box and my hair is way too fine to cover it. It was also not very easy to use, but probably would be great with thicker hair.

Not satisfied.
Sampled

I was so excited to receive this product! However I was quickly disappointed when I could never get it to work, or stay in place once I got it in. Would not reccommend this product.

Frustrating
Sampled

I was really excited when I got this product however I found it hard to use, It was really small and I have long thin hair.
It just didn't work for me and gave it away.

Worked Well Enough
Purchased

I was hoping for something a little stronger since my hair is seriously thick and slightly unruly. But this did a fair job. With just half of my hair pulled up and in a bun, it held for all of church and most of the rest of the day. I didn't mind that it got a little messy in front as the day went on (I have layers after all). But when I really started moving around later in the afternoon, the hair came out of that bun pretty fast. If you can do a quick restyle half-way through the day (or maybe if you have a different hair-type than me), this would be a worthwhile purchase for your hairstyling kit.

Nice Product
Sampled

I really liked the idea of this, but couldn't wear it as high as I wanted to. I purchased the Wrap Up and really like it for creating a high bun. I do wish it would hold my hair a little tighter, as I usually feel like it might fall out.

Stiff
Sampled

This thing was so stiff that I couldn't figure out how to work it. Fed not good for thick/curly hair
