Around Campus: LOGAN


My name is Logan Bykofsky, and as a new social media intern for Sarah Potempa Hairstyling Tools I couldn’t have been more excited to try out the Wrap Up this week on all my friends! Classes are in full swing already at Penn State, and my friends and I are always running out of our apartments and hustling from class to class and sometimes also dealing with extreme temperamental weather conditions. With such busy schedules its not always easy to find cute, easy and (most importantly) quick hairstyles that we can do ourselves before heading out the door every morning to take on the day.

I showed my roommates the Wrap Up this week and they were ecstatic! In less than two minutes my roommate had a super cute and trendy top knot that completely transformed her look from messy to chic and stylish. With just a hair tie and a brush in hand, the Wrap Up was able to work its magic on one of my roommates’ undone hair. She loved the Wrap Up because they could utilize the tool to make a messy bun to wear at home, to class or just for hanging out; but could also make a clean and tight top knot to wear on weekends or nights out in downtown State College. After testing out the product on her, she threw on a super cute headband to be the finishing detail on her new look and kept the Wrap Up in her hair for the entire rest of the day!

The Wrap Up allows for such a large variety of looks that all take only a matter of minutes to complete and it works on all hair types, as well as fits snuggly in your purse or backpack so you can change your hairdo on the go.





Apple Picking & buns

My name is Bri Castro and I am honored to be one of the new social media interns for the Sarah Potempa team. I am currently attending California State Polytechnic University, Pomona and I am studying public relations and communication. 

I saved my socks for my feet and used my new Wrap Up to create a perfect up do for a day of apple picking!

In Southern California, fall season is almost nonexistent. The closest we get to wear fluffy scarves and pretty pea coats is simply pinning them on Pinterest. Fall fashion may be in our dreams, but there are still traditions to withhold.

If you have already ordered your pumpkin spice latte, made a trip to the local pumpkin patch, or like me, go apple picking then you are doing the fall season right!

I went to the Riley’s Farm to pick apples and to learn about the different types of apples they grow. I wore my hair in an undone up do using my new wrap up. It is amazing that I can style my hair in 5 minutes, and since it is over 100 degrees, the wrap up creates a perfect up do for this hot weather.

I spent the day learning about the different types of apples that grow on the orchid and their unique names, like “Red Fuji” or “Golden Delicious”. While I was picking apples, it was nice to have my hair out of my face, but in a stylish way of course.

Before I posed for some photos, I used my Mini On Set Styling Brush to take away any flyaways that I did not want. It is great to have this mini brush in my purse ready to smooth away my curly hair!

 Apple picking is definitely a must do for fall and I had a lot of fun learning about them! The Wrap Up has been added to my go to hairstyles and this trip was just the start. Where have you worn your wrap up this fall season?





Hello everyone! My name is Maddie Stemm and I am a student at  the University of Cincinnati. I recently became a social media intern for Sarah Potempa and it has been a pleasure getting to intern for the company! While at UC, I met one of my best friends to this day and decided to feature her in my first blog.

The constant struggle for my friend Che, is that her hair is frizzy and she has days where her hair goes wild.  Luckily for her, Sarah Potempa’s outstanding products have solved her bad hair day problems for good! Sarah’s hip and innovative brush, the Mini Styling Brush, tames her pesky frizz and fits easily in her bag to take anywhere around campus.

The Wrap Up creates a perfect bun every time within seconds. Che’s perfect bun is a great look for any occasion. It’s quick and easy for her on-the-go college lifestyle and great for formal occasions too! Let the Wrap Up perfect your bad hair days too!

Here's how to get the look:

Step 1: Pull hair into a secure ponytail.

Step 2: Open the Wrap Up and pull hair through the center hole.

Step 3: Slide the Wrap Up down to the ends of the hair.

Step 4: Roll hair upward until you reach the ponytail.

Step 5: Bend both sides of the Wrap Up down and around.

Step 6: Pull hair around to cover ends of the Wrap Up.
