The Comeback of the Scrunchie.

That's right! Love it or hate it, the scrunchie is here to stay!

Last year, the iconic scrunchie started seeping into our favourite high street stores around the world and many of us (me included) didn't really think the fad would last. Fast forward to 2015 and the scrunchie has proven it is here to stay a little while longer.

The Scrunchie was a very popular fashion accessory back in the late 80's and early 90's. However, opinion was divided (and still is). Women either love it or hate it. Personally, I think it's more of the case that you either suit it or you dont.

You can't deny that Pheobe's big black velvet scrunchie really completed her hippy look in Friends...

And then there's Chloe. My reported mini me, my little cousin & style icon. She may be just 15 but my oh my, she can rock that scrunchie out!

How to look effortlessy cool wearing your Scrunchie

I couldn't resist showing a flashback of the late 90's of my cousin Jess and I with our fave hair accessory when we were little trouble makers. I think I may even be eyeing up Jess' scrunchie ready to pull it out of her hair... 'I WANT IT, IT'S MINE!'

And remember the Scrunchie worked wonders for Jenna in 13 going on 30...

Maybe its nostalgia, but I love the Scrunchie look. It was actually walking past American Apparal showing off their awesome scrunchie display that inspired this article.

What do you think of the Scrunchie?

Can't wait to wear one? Or wished it stayed in the 80's?


  1. Whatttt?! Where have I been! I had no idea the scrunch was back. My hair was never long enough to wear one in my 90s childhood but now it's the perfect length!

    1. You're in luck Kate! Get those scrunchies in your hair :)

  2. I never knew the scrunchies was out of style!! lol I have several that I wear. Glad to know I will be back in style now.
