Scrunchies are Back

It's official, the 90s hype has even spread as far as bringing hair scrunchies back. Topshop says so.

At first, I found this a bit odd, I still remember going to Primary school with them. However the more I see them around, the more I grow fond of them, so I went to dig out my old ones from my box of many bands.


My trusty scrunchie was still there after all those years & I have to admit, I do like it. But it lacks a little something that the Topshop scrunchies have - the x-factor of hair scrunchies (if you can imagine that?)... I mean look at this.

The combination of polka dots from the 60s, 'scrunchiness' from the 90s & bunny ears from I-have-no-idea is perfection. So I have started a little project to creating the ultimate scrunchies...


Hopefully I'll be able to show my creations in a little while & maybe even wear them in public... (Who'd have thought!)

  1. I'm not sure I could see myself wearing scrunchies again but I'll have a look at the Topshop ones and see what you come up with before I make up my mind!

    1. I never thought I would either, but I've put them on trial for this month aha, I'm definitely warming to them, as long as they don't resemble the old ones too much!xx

  5. Ooh can't wait to see, I have been deliberating buying a scrunchie myself lately but I'm concerned I'll look a bit too 90s-gymnast!

    1. I know! And as its got a softer edge to the normal bands, it isn't as damaging to your hair - win win!xx

  8. I remember those ! And when they would start to look elasticity, that was another issue. I don't tie my hair unless I am jogging, so I will be missing out on this trend ;)

  10. Do you remember wearing three different scrunchies increasing in size? That was cool when I was little. Not so sure about them now though...
