Hello and welcome to our second Throwback Thursday, where we celebrate memories from the not-so-distant past, and occasionally express our desire to bring them back. Or just to laugh at them, because, oh man.
This time around, what's up is that oft-laughed-about hair accessory, the scrunchie. Favored by late-eighties and nineties TV icons (of our generation, mind—what up SNICK at Night! Hey, TGIF!) such as Clarissa Darling (Clarissa Explains It All) , Six from Blossom , Topanga (Boy Meets World) , Stephanie/Michelle Tanner (Full House) [2,6,7], Rayanne Graff (My So Called Life) , all the Heathers in Heathers , Hillary Clinton , Madonna [12,13], and most recently, the U.S. Women's Gymnastics team at the Olympics —the puffy tie is, against all odds, set to make a comeback in 2013, on the flaxen mane of Cara Delevingne , no less. The young Brit is starring in the latest advertisements for My Crazy Scrunchie, whose website describes their influences as "The Virgin Mary to Salt and Pepper around the streets of Echo Park all the way back to London Town via Clueless circa '90s if the girls in Clueless were in a pillow fight with the girls from Mi Vida Loca..."
So, there you have it (we think?)! First Destiny's Child returns, and now that elasticized band on our wrists. What will they think of next/again?!
