The Beachwaver Co. 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.

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.

Would have been a 5 but it broke
Purchased

I've been raving to my friends about how much I love the Wrap UP. It worked perfectly and never pulled my hair. I also didn't need to fuss with it all day - it just stayed put.

But, after less than three weeks of owning it and about five uses I was putting my hair up today and the wire inside snapped, popped through the foam and stabbed me.

Sad! I'll miss it but I won't buy it again if it's that flimsy.

I love this
Purchased

I have waist-length, super thick hair so it's rare to find a hair "gadget" that works for me. It took me a few tries to get the hang of it, but I got it to work, added just a few bobby pins and I loved the look! I wear my hair up for work everyday so it will get a lot of use.

Hair is too short for this product
Purchased

I just cut my hair short and didn't realize that you needed hair longer than your shoulders (or maybe not as thick as mine) for it to work. Disappointed but maybe it will work when my hair grows out a little.

Not for thick hair
Purchased

Seems that this product does not work well for my thick hair. It would not hold form. Gave this item to my daughter who has thinner hair than me and it worked great for her. She loves it.
