Unable to keep up with demands since 2019, the verdict is in; hair scrunchies have come back with a bang. Yes, it seems this 90’s trend did not just make a comeback in 2019 but has grown in popularity throughout 2020 and 2021.

Invented in 1960 and branded in 1987, the must-have hair accessory of the '80 and ’90s was eventually traded in for a minimal black elastic cord. Labelled uncool, many thought the scrunchies was gone for good. But they were wrong!

So why the re-emerge and rise of scrunchies in our time? 

Could it be nostalgia?

Now that the original trend is twenty years old, it seems a wistful desire for what once was has surfaced; a sentimental yearning for a smartphone free time when much simpler things gave us pleasure. We remember when collecting, swapping and matching scrunchies to complement outfits was our most important task, long before real adult responsibilities came knocking.

Could it be a novelty?

However, just how all generations build on the generation before, they have taken it a step further. For millennials, hair scrunchies are new and possess a uniqueness unmatched with any other hair accessory. These loose fabric elastic rings have become suitable for twisting around ponytails, tying around buns, and wearing around wrists. It is common for girls to give a boy they like a scrunchie from their wrist, in return for his jumper.

Could it be practicality?

The wrong hair accessories can indeed cause damage. Hair scrunchies are the best ties to prevent split ends, frizz and hair breakage as the soft fabric assists in avoiding the pulling or rubbing of hair. Additionally, scrunchies are hard to lose. Unlike other hair ties, scrunchies stand out, which makes them easy to find. Practically hair scrunchies tick all the boxes; they are unharmful, conspicuous and long-lasting.

Could it be personality?

Scrunchies have always made it easy for us to express ourselves. Some of us love loud, colourful prints scrunchies, some like shimmer and sparkle scrunchies, some like plush textural fabrics, like velvet scrunchies, and others prefer elegant silk scrunchies. Whatever your taste, however, you show the world who you are. There is a hair scrunchie style for everyone; the variety and assortment are endless!

 

Here are some of our favourites hair scrunchies!

We think these silk hair scrunchies in rose, mauve and lilac make a stunning combo. Paired with cute stainless steel flower stud earrings on a 'So Loved’ gift card, it is a great gift for ‘girly girls’ that don’t always love the spotlight.
