A favorite of fashion bloggers, off-duty models, and the rest of us on the hunt for an easy weekend look, the ubiquitous topknot shows no signs of abating. But much like winning a round of Candy Crush Saga, the seemingly simple do can be tricky to master. With this plight in mind, hair genius Sarah Potempa created The WRAP UP, a nifty tool that helps you score the perfect topknot, sleek chignon, or tousled low bun. Made with strong, cushy foam, The WRAP UP secures your updo without the help of a zillion bobby pins. Three hair color-matching options, Black, Brunette, and Blonde, ensure your secret weapon remains a secret.
I've always wanted to wear sock buns, but could never figure them out, so I was really excited to try this product. It took me a couple tries to get it right, but once I figured it out I fell in love with it!
It worked for my thick and wavy hair, but it's advertised poorly because if you have layers in your hair, you'll definitely need bobby pins to secure whatever falls out in the back. But I didn't mind that.
Before last week, I would have given this product 5 stars. However, after 10-12 uses, the metal wire inside the foam snapped and it's no longer usable. I was always really careful when bending it and straightening it out when I was finished because I read a few reviews about the wire breaking, so I was extremely disappointed to find that the wire in mine snapped. So if you decide to purchase this product, just know that it will likely snap in half because the wire inside the foam is super flimsy.
I absolutely love the look that I get from using this product. However I've purchased two of these and both have broken after ~6 uses. The metal is very flimsy. I wish it was made better but I can't justify spending the money to constantly rebuy it.1
I love the idea of this but I just don't have thick enough hair to pull it off and the wrap up shows through my bun. Oh well...2
I was skeptical when I first saw this because I've tried those other foam rings for buns, and using a sock was always way easier. However, this thing is awesome! The way it pinches the hair at the end helps you to get your layers more evenly into the bun. It's great!5
I have only used it a couple times. I can only use this when my hair is wet or air drys first. If my hair is straightened it's too thin to work with this.3
I really like this! It's a little difficult because my hair is layered but I can easily fix it with Bobby pins. Anyone without layers would LOVE this!4
I have silky hair so I have to use a lot of product to keep my hair from slipping out. After several uses it gets harder to keep its shape, etc. Will have to replace soon.4
I really loved this wrap-up when I first got it, but each time I used it, I noticed that it was harder and harder to make a closed bun. There would always be a gap in my hair where the ends bands met. I wished the ends could snap together or connect more easily. That would help create a more flawless circle and I wouldn't have to use bobby pins to try and close the gap.4
I really love this thing. I have medium length very curly hair and it works great for me. I don't even have to use any bobby pins with it. Super easy to get a cute bun4
I like it but I apparently don't have the manual dexterity to use it without my hair falling outfoxed it.3
