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.

not as easy as it looks
Purchased

always on the search for hair tricks. I'm admittedly terrible at updo's and thought that this little gadget would be perfect. Unfortunately, it doesn't hold my hair up and it takes me a few tries to get it all in the twist at once. I do have layers in my hair which may pose half the problem, but I was really disappointed :(

the envy of my friends
Purchased

I walked into work the other day and nobody could figure out how my bun was so perfect! These are a must have and make getting ready in the morning so easy!

Not impressed.
Purchased

I bought this after watching the video tutorial that you guys posted thinking it was going to be amazing. When I got it, I was surprised at how cheap it appeared. My hair is a couple inches past my shoulders and this tool just does not work on it. I think you really need LONG hair for this to be effective.

Okay, but what's the point
Purchased

This thing does work. It rolled right up, fastened, and hid in my hair. But I'm not sure I love the result. It's kind of a wide bun. I think it makes you appear to have more hair because the thing is padded, and it does hold well, but it's just a bun. Nothing revolutionary. I'm going to play with it some more to see if I can do something cooler. But it's not a must have for now.

Easy once you get the hang of it
Purchased

It took me a while to figure out the best way to wear this. I have long, super-thick layered hair and I start rolling it at the shortest layer. It helps if you can get it as tight to your head as possible before wrapping it around into the bun. I would definitely recommend this if you don't mind playing around with it for a while.

So easy to use and great results!
Purchased

I was originally introduced to this product when I received the Half Up in my box one month. I was impressed with how easy the Half Up was to use, but it couldn't quite hold all of my hair up (which makes sense since it is the Half Up). Since I wear my hair in a bun all the time, I was intrigued by the Wrap Up and decided to order one. And let me tell you, the Wrap Up does not disappoint. It's super easy to use, even I can do it- and I can barely blowdry my hair, let alone actually style it. The first time I wore it was before a 12 hour shift at the hospital. My hair stayed put the whole time and I received multiple compliments and questions as to how my bun was so perfect. In fact, one of my coworkers ordered a Wrap Up that night! Quite possibly the best part was after taking my hair down (12 hours later), I discovered that the Wrap Up had curled my hair gorgeously! I normally have very straight, rather flat hair so this was a wonderful surprise. I'm now trying to experiment with the Wrap Up as a method for curling my hair- a perfect top knot during the day, gorgeous curls that night!

Perfect Bun and Chignon

I absolutely love this product! I have really long, thick hair and this can hold it all! It is super simple to use and looks adorable! By far the best bun/chignon tool I have ever bought...and I have tried a lot! Way better than a sock bun, lol :)

Like this but not sure how long it will hold up
Purchased

I've used this only once and a friend had to borrow it. It worked pretty well as long as I started rolling from my first long layer. I have long thick hair and this held well with some bobby pins. I do wonder how long it will last though, seemed kind of flimsy.

These things just never work for me.
Purchased

I must be alone in this, but I've never gotten anything in this genre of products to work for me. I'm sure it's great if it works with your hair, but be aware it doesn't with everyone's.
