Scrunchies are back and they’re bigger than ever
Some other names for scrunchies include hair scrunchies, hair bobbles, hair ties, hair elastics, ponytail holders, and hair bands.
I made these in high school in the mud 1990’s in home economics and sold some and gave some away too back then. I’ve not made any since then until now, 2023 and beyond.
The history of scrunchies dates back to the 1980s. They were invented by a woman named Rommy Revson, who was tired of the harsh elastic bands that were damaging her hair. She wanted something that was gentler on her hair, and so the scrunchie was born.
The first scrunchies were made from fabric, and they quickly gained popularity due to their comfort and versatility. Scrunchies were particularly popular among athletes, as they could be worn during physical activity without causing hair damage.
In the 1990s, scrunchies reached the height of their popularity. They were worn by everyone from pop stars to soccer moms, and they came in a wide variety of colors and fabrics. However, by the early 2000s, the popularity of scrunchies had waned, and they were often seen as outdated and uncool.
Fast forward to today, and scrunchies are once again in vogue. They’ve been spotted on the runways of high-end fashion shows and on the heads of celebrities like Ariana Grande and Bella Hadid. So why the sudden resurgence in popularity?
One reason is that people are looking for more sustainable and eco-friendly fashion choices. Scrunchies are a great option because they can be made from recycled fabrics, and they’re often more durable than traditional hair elastics. Plus, they’re less likely to cause hair damage, which means you’ll have healthier locks in the long run.
Another reason for the popularity of scrunchies is their versatility. They come in a wide range of styles, from bold and bright to understated and elegant. Whether you’re wearing one to the gym or to a formal event, there’s a scrunchie out there that will suit your needs.
So, why should you own a scrunchie? For starters, they’re comfortable and won’t damage your hair. They’re also a fun way to add a pop of color or texture to your outfit. And, as we mentioned earlier, they’re a more sustainable choice than traditional hair elastics. So why stop at just one? Start building your scrunchie collection today!
