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.

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!

Best ballerina bun

My buns are usually weak and little. This makes me hair look full and effortless. Definitely a must have for anyone. I have past my shoulder length hair and this works perfectly.

Even wrangles super thick super long hair

I have absurdly long hair (near my belly button) and it's thick on top of that. With a bit of practice and some bobby pins, this turned the rat's nest that sits on top of my head into an elegant updo that stayed put all day. It might be much to ask for it to stay for hours of awesome dancing, but it lasted through a full day of work and then some.

Pleasant surprise

I have extremely long and thick hair, so I was skeptical of this product, as I've never really found anything that works for me. This was simple to use and really held my hair excellently. I'm very happy with this product.

Great product
Purchased

This thing is so cool, and so easy to use. It's light so you don't even feel it in your hair. It makes doing the sock bun so much easier. Highly recommend!

great for longer haired ladies
Purchased

I purchased both sizes and ended up giving this one to my sister who is blessed with the patience to have hair (almost) down to her waist, and i stuck with the half up...BUT this product is easy to use and master. Quick pony, slide hair through and roll down. One quick bobby pin makes it secure and you are ready to move on with your day. We are two sisters who as so grateful to Sarah Potempa for making our go to hair accessory!

Good idea,so so product
Purchased

This is a nice product to have if you like a top bun, because it eliminates the need for hair pins. But it takes a few tries to get it right, since you have to roll your hair around the 'wrap up'. So it can be time consuming. I've read some of the recent reviews and now I'm worried about it breaking. Had I seen those comments prior to my purchase I would have passed on purchasing this item.

not for "shorter" hair

My hair is just starting to grow out--just past my shoulders now, with some shorter layers. This doesn't work at all in my hair. I thought this product would help me start doing some cuter styles. I didn't realize you needed longer hair for it. I'll try it again in several months or so when my hair is longer. Hopefully it won't be a complete waste of money.
