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.

Too Small

I have a lot of hair and this did nothing for me. This would probably work better for someone with very thin hair.

Beach waver Half up
Purchased

Although I like this look, it is very difficult to get my hair in the tiny slot. I have fine hair so I would expect it will be impossible if you have thick hair.

Great for a half up or super fine hair
SampledPurchased

I love this for my baby fine hair. The full size versions of these always show through and frustrate me when I just want to throw all of my hair up on my head. This one works at pulling all of my hair up or half of it up without showing through.

I'm not great at using products like this, and in general they're just not for me. Plus I don't really want the hairstyle it's trying to achieve.

Not impressed

I honestly didn't even take this out of the packaging because I knew that it wouldn't work in my hair. I took it straight to Goodwill. :)

Perfect for Fine Hair
Purchased

I intentionally purchased the half up because I have very fine hair and the normal one would have shown through my bun. The Half Up is perfect for a full bun that doesn't look as pathetic as it used to. I'm sure it works well for just half of your hair, but for me I use it like the full size one and it's perfect.

This doesnt even work?

I have long hair (almost to my butt) and I bought this because it takes to long to do a regular sock bun and I thought this looked like an easier way. I really like the concept of this, but it doesnt clasp in the back, so its impossible to keep bent in a perfect circle, so the bun doesnt stay put so I can't possibly use this. Even a ponytail doesnt hold it right.

It doesn't work for me
Purchased

Maybe it's just me...my hair is thick and long. After fumbling with this thing for about 30 minutes trying to get it to perform like it claimed it would, I only gave up because the metal inside broke. I really wanted this to work!!!!! I loved the concept and it was cheap. So I'm not super broken-hearted. If they come out with a new and improved design I would give it another whirl.

Everyone seems to be against this product, but for me, I really like it! I have very thin, fine hair and it works product for the look I was trying to achieve, so I'm very pleased.
