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 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'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 use this almost every day. It's so great because I don't even have to prepare my hair much, I just throw it up in a ponytail and let the wrap up do its magic. A few bobby pins to hide away my frizzy ends, and I have a perfect bun that is ready to go and lasts all day long.5
Everyone always compliments my hair when I use the wrap-up, it's so amazing and stays in place all day. WAY easier than a sock bun. My hair is thick and super long.5
This is my 2nd Wrap Up. My first cracked in half (mostly my fault) and decided to re-purchase because I was happy with the product overall. It makes it easy to secure your hair without a lot of pins - I usually need one small pin or clip to secure the ends but my ends always stick out. I have very fine hair - there is no way this would work for thick hair but I can't imagine anything would for this sort of bun "assist." Overall does its job and good price.5
I have semi-short/thin hair and as much as I love to put it in a bun, sometimes its hard to do . I've tried sock buns, and squishy buns - this was great, however I wish they had a smaller version of it so that my hair could completely get into it. Other than that, I recommend and do use it!4
I only got to use it once before my sister stole it from me! So I am now ordering another one! I have very thick hair & it was a breeze to use! It reminds me of the ones we used in the 70s & 80s (yes, I'm that vintage! LOL)! I was happy that by the end of the day the bun was still intact too!5
The color blends in well with my hair. It is rather easy to use once you get the hang of it and doesn't look like anything is in my hair.4
