SARAHPOTEMPA The WRAP UP™

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.

SO EASY!
Purchased

I've used socks,bobby pins, teasing, hair donut, etc. and this is by far the easiest tool. It looks great every time. I can make it nice and neat or messy cute. Super fun to mess around with and super easy to use.

Short hair

I received this in my box and unfortunately couldn't use it with my short hair but am saving it for when my hair grows a bit!

Not workin for me
Purchased

I was quite disappointed with this product. I have very thick curly long hair and often wear buns or ponytails. I found The Wrap Up to be very difficult to use, even after viewing the 'how-to' videos. I have tried several buns with this product - from low to high to topknot to chignon- and have never been satisfied with the end result. I am going to stick with my old school elastics and bobby pins. Not the right product for me - at all!

easy to use
Purchased

This is much easier than using the end of a sock to roll your hair around, and it seems to hold my hair in place pretty well. I do have some layers and my hair is just past my shoulders, so getting all the hair in place takes a couple attempts sometimes. Overall, it's an easy way to get my hair up and looks more sophisticated than my usual messy, elastic band bun.

I love the wrap up! So easy and looks polished! I usually have tons of trouble getting stuff like this to work but this tool is absolutely idiot proof!

easier than the sock bun
Purchased

I have not mastered the "sock" bun, so figured this would be the perfect product to try. This product gives you a great look from the front, but wrapping The Wrap Up was more challenging in the back to create the flawless bun. Overall a great product for the office or going out…just requires a bit of practice.

LOVE this!
Purchased

I received the SarahPotempa "half up" in my birchbox and it worked perfectly so I decided to give this one a try too. I LOVE THIS. It makes a super-cute low bun or top bun and it's really easy to use--even for someone like me who rarely gets creative with her hair.

Should have known...
Purchased

I purchased this with hesitation due to the mixed reviews. When I first got it, it did work moderately well to help with a bun. Maybe due to my hair getting longer and it being thick and straight, it doesn't wrap well, many shorter pieces don't get rolled in and when you try to bend the device and bring the hair around the bottom, the wire doesn't stay shut. So, after a few uses, the wire gets funny and uncooperative and opens to an inverted U shape, which no amount of bobby pins could make look like a round bun. Disappointing.
