Wrap Up Around the World: Disneyland!

Disneyland is a great place to get away and spend quality time with family and friends. I love wearing my minnie ears, trying to do something new each trip (I tried the seasonal Cheddar Cheese Ale soup at the Pacific Wharf), and planning silly poses for the ride photos.

Like any other event, getting ready is part of the fun! Since it was going to be a sunny day, I did not want to take any chances of having hair issues (Frizzy hair alert!). I wore my hair in my wrap up and kept a few strands hanging in the front.

Not to show off, but I have many pairs of minnie ears (How can anyone resist buying them?!) After the final touches on my wrap up bun, I threw my polka dot minnie cap on and left my house to enjoy a day at the happiest place on earth.

I could not be more happy with my wrap up! It stayed in place throughout the day and endured California Screamin’, the Matterhorn and lots of running around with my little cousins. Keeping in mind that my hair is thick and curly and sometimes hard to manage so that is why the wrap up is getting the highest praise from me.

Toward the end of the day, I needed to touch up on makeup and hair. My touch up ended up turning into a tutorial on how to use the wrap up! I was showing my cousin how to use it and a woman at another mirror started watching. It was so great to spread the word in that way!

I took pictures at my favorite spots at Disneyland and California Adventure. The first one is at the Sleeping Beauty castle because she is my favorite princess! My second favorite place is the Pacific Wharf, because of the yummy bread bowls. Where will my wrap up bun go next?!


 

The Half Up on Campus

What better way to start a Friday then with hot coffee and a cute 'do! My friend Bailey and roommate Sylvia are testing this theory. Cold and rainy weather is approaching here in Cincinnati, Ohio and these girls know just what it takes to overcome the harsh weather ahead.

The Half-Up is a major time saver. Within seconds, their hair is transformed from bedhead to chic perfection just in time to make it to their 9 am classes. A great addition to this look includes headbands, bows, and even cute clips. When the temperature becomes unbearable, keep rocking the do with the addition of earmuffs.

My friends pair their unique hairdo with their fab fall apparel and favorite Starbucks drink. What more could a girl want? May your Friday start out this fabulous too!

HALLOWEEN: FABULOUS FLAPPER

This flapper look is all that jazz and so easy to recreate! All you need is the Beachwaver Pro, Wrap Up and this pretty feather flapper headwrap from Icing.

Step 1: Create a deep side part.

Step 2: Divide hair into three sections: Left, Right and Back. 

Step 3: Select "R" on the Beachwaver® Pro.

Step 4: Select a 1-inch piece of hair, clamp the hair all the way and the bottom and hold "GO" to start the rotation. Be sure to keep the hair in the same spot on the barrel, as you want to create a tight curl. We have a great tutorial here so that you can see exactly how a roller set is done using The Beachwaver Pro. 

Step 5: Release hair and clip the curl with a metal duckbill clip. Repeat this and continue to curl 1-inch sections. 

Step 6: Allow the curls to cool.

Step 7: Remove clips, and spray hair with a flexible hold hairspray

Step 8: Using the Wrap Up, create a faux bob. Tutorial here.

Step 9: Spray hair with a flexible hold hair spray like Aussie's Sprunch Spray to finish off the look!

 


 
 

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.

HALLOWEEN: Feisty Feline

 

We took the classic cat costume and put a spin on it by using the Beachwaver Pro, Wrap Up and fun faux leather cat ears!

Step 1: First, part your hair by sectioning it right down the center of your head with a Darby Clip and secure that section into a ponytail.

Step 2: Using the Wrap Up, create a bun at the top of your head.

Step 3: Gather up the rest of your hair into a pony tail right underneath the bun.

Step 4: Curl the ponytail with the Beachwaver Pro and allow the curls to cool.

Step 5: Lastly, twist your ponytail into one big curl.
