There have been a fair few hair accessories whose mere existence have divided popular opinion throughout the decades. Butterfly clips, flower barrettes and headache-inducing hair bands have caused controversy all the way from the playground to the office. The scrunchie, like many of its accessory predecessors, has also faced a bit of a hard time.
From its rise to fame in countless 1980s films, to becoming the accessory of choice worn by the eclectic Phoebe in Friends, only to then experience a scathing takedown from Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and The City, the style ranking of the scrunchie has experienced more market instability than a share in Tesla.
Fast forward to 2021, where a seemingly never-ending carousel of nineties and noughties trends have been experiencing a revival at the hands of Gen Z. One of them? You guessed it. The infamous scrunchie is back baby, and this time she’s had a haute makeover at the hands of some of the biggest designers in fashion.
From logo-clad fabric courtesy of Fendi, to sequin showstoppers from Prada, we’ve rounded up the very best scrunchies to take your hair (or wrist) to the next level. Just try not to lose these ones…
