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.
This came in my November box and it took me a minute to figure out how to use it, but once I got the hang of it I LOVED it!4
The first 2 times I used this is seemed to work easily enough, but it broke by the 3rd use. I followed the directions each time, but it is just not made well. Since it requires constant bending around your hair, it needs to be sturdier.2
Unfortunately, there isn't a button for hair length on profile. I guess the concept of this would be great if my hair was very long and I could use it. So I'll have to give it a thumbs don't for a wasted product in my monthly subscription.1
I got this as a bonus sample which is great, because I would have never bought it. It is a slight pain to get your hair into initially (I put my hair in a ponytail with an elastic, then use this), but once in, it works pretty well. You do have to have hair that is a bit longer if you don't have super-thick hair - and if you have layers, you will not get a neat bun. But I really like this. Elastics slip off since my hair is fine and stick straight, and bobby pins give me a headache after a while. This is totally comfortable and I can use it with dry hair (I can't get my hair in a bun with other means unless it is wet). It's not perfect, but I would buy it!4
I have been meaning to try to find a sock bun, but once I got this in my birch box I had no need! This was perfect, and only needed a few extra bobby pins for strays. Loved the look!5
If you have thick curly hair, this bad boy won't let you grasp all the hair or is large enough to have the ability to twist it up. I wish this was bigger.1
This is a cool idea for a hair product, however, it does not work well for layered hair. I have long hair, with shoulder length layers, and the Wrap Up did not clamp tight enough around my hair to keep all of it in place.2
A good product. takes a little practice to get it right but works.4
I have long (mid-back), wavy, thick hair that never (ever ever) wants to do anything fancy. I tried to do a sock bun, but even with all that hair I could never get it around the sock well. I used points to gamble on The Wrap Up and it made a perfect bun first try. I was super impressed. Subsequent uses have yielded similar results. My concern, though, is that for the price the Wrap Up might not be very durable as the wire inside feels rather thin and each use I've had a bit more trouble shaping the wrap well. But, considering my history with making buns, it feels like magic anyway.4
Unfortunately, this product was not what I expected. I've seen other similar products that are able to reproduce the sock bun without actually using a sock, but this isn't one of them. It's just too small.2
