    This works really well for buns. It even stays put in thick hair. I haven't quite figured out how to make a messy bun with it.

        Comments about Beachwaver Co. The Half Up:

        I bought this a few months ago and never used it until last weekend when I decided to give it a try. It was a little difficult to use at first, but it did not take long for me to get the hang of it. I love the way it looked in my hair and it did not pull on my hair at all. It is a great alternative to wearing a ponytail when I want to pull my hair back. I was looking for a brown or black one to try, but all the store had in stock was the blonde one. My hair color is reddish-brown and when I put the half up in, I could not see the blonde because it gave my hair good coverage. I will definitely be purchasing another one in the future!

          Comments about Beachwaver Co. The Half Up:

          I tried out the full-sized version of this (The Wrap Up) but I didn't have enough hair to cover it well so I exchanged it for The Half Up as it is half the length of the original Wrap Up. I'm glad I gave it another go because The Half Up is perfect for my hair! I've never been able to do a sock bun no matter how many times I try but I got the hang of this right away; it takes less than minute to put in and leaves me with a great full and fluffy bun that stays in all day! It's lightweight so it doesn't pull down on the hair and loosen over time. I love that there are three different color options, as a light blonde it's frustrating when styling tools only come in brown or black but the blonde Half Up blends in with my hair so I don't have to worry about a darker color showing through.

          I use this to make high and low buns as well as top knots. I've also discovered that it works great with elastic headbands--- I'll put the headband on with the bottom elastic part on top of my hair, clip The Half Up on and slide it to the end of my hair and roll it up like I'm making a low bun. Then, keeping it open instead of shaping it into a donut, just tuck the bottom elastic part of the headband into the roll I just made, add a few bobby pins to neaten it up and pin any fly aways and boom: a great easy hairstyle that stays in place all day!

          this is not that easy to use. It looks like it would be. I have fine hair and it would be easier probably if someone else did it, but doing it to my own hair is not as easy as it looks.

            I bought it to hold my hair back without putting tension on my head, resulting in HA. It does that, no tension! However, it is very difficult to get may hair through the slot especially with layers. I'll probably never use this item.

              I have long hair and I can make an updo bun in no time, and it looks nice and sleek.

                Comments about Beachwaver Co. The Half Up:

                My hair is very fine and about 3-4 inches past my shoulders. My buns are about the size of half a golf ball (I'm not exaggerating). I got this half up as I know the full "up" would be too big for my super fine hair. This one works perfectly to create a beautiful bun on my head which actually looks to be a normal size, AND I don't need any bobby pins! It feels very secure on my head! It took a few tries at first, as you have to bend the metal open to get your hair through, then push it back together to get tight, and then when you roll the bun, you have to tighten it again that way. I feel like over time, this will probably break, as metal can only bend so many times, but so far, it's great.

                  Anyone who has a daughter in dance class should try this! It worked great in my 5 year old's hair, and her hair is thick. And no bobby pins!

                    It only takes one bobby pin to tuck hair into. Having thin hair I purchased the smallest one and it works on low and high buns.
