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.

Not for me

I thought this was interesting, but I'm not a fan of buns on myself, and I'm not a little girl.

this is too awesome for little girls

I have a long fine thin hair so I decided to give it a try with my 5-year-old daughter's hair. It looks very cute on her! It's a win!

Didn't work for me

My hair is below my shoulders, but somewhat thin. It's plenty long enough for most hair accessories, but this product SO does not work! I think you need to have really long, thick hair. I'm sticking to my regular old sock bun!

Not a fan

I was hoping this was going to work as I love the bun look, but my shoulder length, fine hair did not want to do the trick. I was really disappoint and kind of wished I could have traded it for something else. :(

Does not work with fine hair

I would have given this more stars but the advertising on the package is clearly wrong. I have very fine straight hair and after spending the past hour attempting to use it I give up. I didn't come close to covering The Wrap Up when I did a half up bun. Even after watching the how-to video I am no closer to figuring out how to use this. It would probably work if you had thick curly hair but otherwise don't waste your money.

Love!
Purchased

Such an easy-to-use way to create a gorgeous, perfect bun. My hair has many layers so I have to spend a little extra time tucking in the ends of my hair as I'm rolling the Wrap Up down my ponytail, but it really does come out perfect and just needs two or three bobby pins to finish off the look.

Quick up
Purchased

It's lightweight and makes an everyday up do quick and easy. I like the fact it doesn't damage your hair with elastics.

Very hard to use
Purchased

This did not work for me, even after watching the "how to" video on Birchbox. I gave it to my daughter who had trouble as well. If you have shiny silky hair it may not work in this tool.

If you have layers -- don't buy this
Purchased

I really (REALLY) wanted this to work. But I have layers and there is hair sticking out everywhere. Ugh. It will probably work if you have long hair with no layers. I wish I could send it back.

Produces the best top knot!
Purchased

Absolutely love this tool. Makes a perfect top knot every time. Just a couple bobby pins and some hairspray, and the top knot will stay in place from morning to night. It's been fun adding this hairstyle into my weekly rotation!
