A lot has changed since the pandemic began: I wear scrunchies now.
I eschewed scrunchies even as a kid, deeming them tacky. When they came back a few years ago, I was still not on board with the retro trend.
Recently, I started seeing scrunchies in silk, satin, leather, and floral fabrics. I had to admit when they were made with decent fabrics, they looked kind of nice. And modern. Was the scrunchie now... chic?? Or was I merely brainwashed by the cool girls on IG?
I couldn't deny the practicality of a scrunchie, how much gentler they were on the hair. I was starting to come around.
When I saw the oversized scrunchies, I was finally sold. They were kitsch, they were fun, and best of all, they kept my hair styled with no effort at all—the ultimate quarantine hair.
Scrunchies can look chic on adults as long as they are made in luxe fabrics such as silk, satin, velvet, or organza.
I bought my scrunchies from local sellers on Etsy, such as Banana Facility. I recommend just doing a search on Etsy for "scrunchie" along with whatever fabric or size you're looking for to find local sellers who make them.
