Scrunchies - Five Wears to Wear Them!

Scrunchies are the easy, go-to hair accessory for so many of us. We can wear them on our wrists, and then quickly pop our hair up when it gets in the way. Soft and gentle, and always wearable - they are the best accessory for laid back, fashionably low-key hair. 

For me, they are also the ultimate in hair accessory nostalgia (and I am showing my age here!). I have fond memories of dancing in a black, sparkly puffball dress to "Ride On Time", a coordinating black, sparkly scrunchie in my hair. My hair was always too flat to be fashionable, but with scrunchies  on hand, anything was possible.

With the nineties aesthetic having been fashionable for some time now, scrunchies have made a big comeback. The styling possibilities are endless, both hair accessory wise, and outfit wise! I like to wear mine with mom jeans and big earrings for nostalgic style, but they can be glammed up, or dressed down, according to your mood. 

They are such fun to experiment with, and I hope you enjoy our five ways to wear them!

1) Cute as a Button - with Braids and Bunches

These pearl scrunchies are super sweet, and look adorable styled with bunches. For a dose of extra cuteness, add braids to the style, as we have here. 

2) Half Up Half Down Plus Ponytail

To bring out the glamour of the pearls, go for a slightly more grown up style. This half up, half down style plus ponytail allows for lots of scrunchie fun to show off your pearly hair accessories!

The blue scrunchie gift set has echoes of 1980s chic - wear with big earrings like we have here to complete the look!

3) Ponytail with a Twist

Opt for a classic high ponytail, but give it a twist by pairing two coordinating colours of scrunchie together. Briana wears Aqua and Blue together here, both from our Blue Velvet Scrunchie Gift Set

4) Half Up Half Down with a Twist

Use the same idea for a fresh spin on half up half down hair. The scrunchie aesthetic works brilliantly with this style, as you can really add a bit of height to your hair!  Pink is a fun colour for this style - this velvet scrunchie gift set of 3 in pink is uplifting and playful to wear. 

5) All-Out Scrunchie Fabulousness!

Wear all your scrunchies together for a more-is-more 80s vibe! We have created height at the crown with a half up half down style, with two scrunchies twisted together for extra interest. 

 For the bottom half, Briana has styled a relaxed ponytail with lots of volume. The velvet scrunchies work perfectly for this, for classic scrunchies style!
