Sarah Potempa Up-do Kit with 2 Wrap-ups and Brush
Works Great, and I LOVE the brush!
I have long straight hair, past my shoulders, and this works great for me. It reminds me of a product I used in the 90's that was similar, and was used to make a bun or a french twist. The real sleeper of this set, though, is the brush. LOVE it! Real bore bristles, and it is so soft and easy on my hair. My little 2-yo granddaughter lets me use this brush on her baby fine hair, and she usually runs away from anyone else since her hair gets so snarly and it hurts her to have it brushed. Good buy!
Good for longer hair
I was really excited for these to come. My hair is just past my shoulders, and very straight. I figured this would be a great and easy way to do up-dos for a few upcoming events. Unfortunately, my hair is not quite long enough to make this work. I need only about an inch more. My layers don't hold and stick out in spikes -- not cute. I think I will really like these when my hair grows out a bit which is why I am going with 4 stars. It would also be nice if they came in other colors -- I see that other reviewers said this as well so I imagine SP will start doing this soon. My hair is brown and i was able to get the whole wrap covered with not much issue.
Waste of money
I purchased this for my shoulder length african-american hair. It was easy to use, but my hair did not cover the wrap. The wrap should not be seen, but should be invisible under my hair. I would only recommend for someone with long hair.
Not recommended for wavy hair
This looked great on the straight-haired models in the demo, but it made my wavy hair look like a rat's nest.
Best Bun for soccer!
I just got my new wraps today and tried them out. Not only was it super easy and flawless on my hair, but I put one in my daughter's hair for her soccer game tonight and it held up perfectly through the whole game. Love this!!
Love the Wraps!
i love the wraps. My hair is thick and they work great. so easy to use.
Love this product
Been using every day since I have received them. I love them because I do have long hair and I can easily pull it back after towel drying or light blow dry, roll it up and it gives me fullness and soft curl which I did not expect. My hair is waving and tense to be brittle on the ends but not so with putting these in as a styling product. If I put it in dry, it does the same. I also like the fact I do not need to use a elastic. I only use the elastic first if going to be out and want it to stay put all day. This gives me the optic of not flat ironing my hair. Funny thing is I watched a video of her on a blog a few weeks prior and was going to purchase these anyway. Was glad to see them on Q so I will probably gets these for gifts as well as it gives you several options how to use though not indicated.
Almost LOVE LOVE :)
I have long but not very full hair and this works really well for me. I would have given it a 5 star review if it were a more neutral color, since I have blonde hair, so that it would blend a little better for my "thinner" less full hair. But I also tried it on my 13 yr old daughter's gorgeously full locks and it worked just as well. I was unsure as to how well this would actually hold up in the hair but it really did work for us. I was Especially amazed with my daughter's heavy hair holding. She and I both really do enjoy using this product. Again, would like to see it in may some more natural hair colors :)
not good for long and thick hair
I got this for myself but I have very long and VERY thick hair and it does not work for me. I did let my niece try it and she has VERY thin hair and it seemed to work ok.
I have fine, shoulder-length, stick-straight hair and I knew that using this with my hair type more than likely wouldn't work. However, I had a feeling that it would work FABULOUSLY with the Ken Paves smooth ponytail extension, which is what I use it with and the reason I bought it - to give it another way to wear this hairpiece. I know that means another purchase, but ladies, let me tell you that this little gadget works great with his hairpiece - I use the combination for "bad hair" days and I look polished and put-together! Be prepared though - it does take practice to get it to look right but after a few tries you will be a pro!
Not easy to use
I have spent 4 hours in 3 different sessions trying to get these to work. I asked a friend to try. No luck. I have shoulder length thick and wavy hair. Really disappointed.
Do not waste your money
I could not wait to get this wrap! I was so disappointed! I tried and tried, my hair is in long layers, so maybe that why it does not work. The wraps are thicker, and heavy than it should be. I believe it would break over a matter of time. How disappointing.
