Scrunchies – how do you wear yours?
Some days we’re a little more nostalgic than others and if hair and fashion is taking its inspiration from the 80s and 90s and we’re going back to the future, there’s no better way to accessorise than with the wonderful versatile scrunchie.
Who would have thought that a simple piece of covered elastic that was named after a pet poodle, would have stood the test of time and become 2021’s hair accessory de jour? Scrunchies are the perfect working from home zoom call saviour. Quick and easy to use, they can take your hair from unkempt and quite frankly you shouldn’t be seen with hair like that, to ‘Celine scrunchie inspired’, fashion forward cool with a quick brush of your hair and a couple of twists of your favourite scrunchie.
Beloved of celebs including Hailey Bieber, Bella Hadid, Lizzo and Ariana Grande, worn either in their hair or as a wrist accessory – scrunchies aren’t going away anytime soon. Gen Z influencers including K-Pop star @lalalalisa_m was seen sporting a Hermes scrunchie on her wrist. Scrunchies work equally well with athleisure as they do on dress up Friday, making them the most versatile of accessories.
Because the elastic is covered and the band is larger, it puts much less tension on the hair causing less damage than hair ties or bobbles.
Some scrunchies we love are the luxe Corinne Leather Scrunchie in black or cream costing £50 and available from www.mabelandmabel.uk and from the same website the beautifully soft eco-friendly bamboo towelling scrunchies from Palomino are available in a cream or white twin pack for £12.99.
