6 Reasons Why We Support the Scrunchie Revival

Scrunchies have been around for a long, long time. They were popular back in the 80’s and the 90’s, but then they died out of the hair accessory world when thin black bands came into favor. Until now. That’s right, the scrunchie is back people! Love it or hate it, it has been revived.

I used to be a scrunchie skeptic myself. I thought that scrunchies looked like something a child would wear in their hair, or like something out or a bad aerobics class. However, that opinion has changed. You know what changed it? Being gifted a scrunchie and actually trying it out for myself for the first time since childhood. It was a magical experience, and I’ve been on the scrunchie train ever since. In case you still aren’t on team scrunchie, here are a few reasons that may make you change your mind.

1. They work well for both thick and thin hair

2. They have the ability to hold more hair without breaking

3. They have really, really pretty designs

4. They never pull your hair or get tangled in it

5. They’re popping up on runways, so you’re basically a model

6. They look like cool bracelets when you wear them on your wrist
