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.
The Good: For a low maintenance girl like myself, I found this product to be extremely user friendly, and that's a major plus. Just make a pony tail, pull your hair through the slit in the middle of the wrap, position the wrap near the ends of your hair, then roll and tuck. I found that the Wrap Up held tight, and although a few of my shorter layers peeked out, I feel like my bun was secure throughout the day, despite me being rather careless about maintaining my style.
The Bad: The Wrap Up is thick and cushy which might be excellent for those users with long or thick hair. I have extremely fine, wavy hair that falls about two inches below my shoulders. There is no possible way I could get my hair to cover the Wrap Up in its entirety. No matter how I tried, foam was going to show through. I'm growing my hair out, so I'll see if I can cover it in a few months, but for right now, it'll be hard for me to replicate the thick, lush bun or topknot mentioned in the description.
When I bought this product I was unsure because my hair had lots of layers. However, it works great! I got the blonde one and no one notices it!
Tip: the looser you want your bun the looser you have to put together the two ends,but I found securing with a bobby pin does the trick!
This tool is amazing. I have thin, straight, fine, long, blonde hair and it's almost impossible to do anything with. I can use this product in washed hair with minimal product (usually a spritz of hairspray after) and only 1-2 bobby pins and it stays looks beautiful all day. Love love love. Totally worth the price; really nice quality. I would (and have already) recommended this to friends.5
It work so very well I cannot love it more, it really works well on layered hair and is a perfect , quick way to deal with middle of the week hair styles5
I have both sizes of this product. I haven't been able to master the bun or half bun yet. I have long layers and they pop out every time. I am sure this may work better with longer hair without layers.3
I like this and it's easier to use than a lot of others but the bun isn't as big as I would like. But it comes out nice and neat and stays in place all day. I wore it to the beach on a windy day and it didn't move. Loved it4
This is one of my staples in my travel bag for a quick undo on the go. Even with layered medium length hair, I can easily put my hair up in a quick bun without needing bobby pins or other clips. Love this!5
I have fine Asian hair and no matter how many times I try, I can't get my hair up with this :(1
Simple to use, helps keep hair out of my face, and a simple chic look - worth it! I would definitely recommend this product!4
Love the method, easy to use and stays put without fuss. I didn't even use bobby pins. I'm so happy I spent the money!5
