Scrunchies went from being trendy in the late 1980s and early ’90s, to being a faux pas in the early aughts to being a must-have now. We can’t imagine how we ever lived without them. Scrunchies are key to current hairstyles, such as big messy top buns, half-up styles and low ponytails. There’s a scrunchie for every need and situation, too. Don’t believe me? Allow me to explain.
There’s the scrunchie you wear when you’re headed for a night out with your friends. Then, there’s the scrunchie you wear on a date. There’s a different scrunchie you wear to work out and another to wash your face and go to bed. I often find I wear my biggest and softest scrunchies to bed so my hair doesn’t crease and save my cute ones with the prints and the bows to style my hair for the day. But to each their own when it comes to hair accessories.
Shop some of our favorite scrunchie sets below, some of which have more than 40 varieties of colors and textures (such as knits and velvets) with prints and bows. There really is something for everyone.
