On the off chance you aren’t already over ‘90s nostalgia, the scrunchie trend may be of particular interest. Resurfacing from its Heathers days, the accessory seems poised for a surprising (but maybe not that surprising) comeback—especially if the folks behind @ScrunchiesOfInstagram have anything to say about it. Showcasing the good, the bad and the ice skater, the feed is a judgement-free zone when it comes to tying off one’s hair. And hey, if it works for Brigitte Bardot, it works for us.

    wait but do you remember the episode of satc where Carrie is like "a SCRUNCHIE?!?! women of ny don't wear scrunchies!!" and then burger's like " :/ " and now here she is wearing a SCRUNCHIE. i dig 'em though

      The mere mention of Scrunchies and I'm staring down the aforementioned hair accessory on tourists in the bar with Carrie and Burger. Such a classic episode. And such wise words from THE fashion authority. They will never be chic, I'm sorry.

    You can pry my scrunchies from my cold, dead hands. I sleep in and workout in them because they leave the gentlest of waves in the hair. I would grab my little box of them in a fire. #loudandproud

    Scrunchies and a see through visor? Someone get V.Stiviano on the phone, Karlie is showing you how it's done, girl!

    That picture of Lana is priceless.

  • Tanya

    I don't think that is Madonna. Looks more like Patti Smyth of Scandal to me. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_50-gOeBilc

      Agree - that person definitely doesn't look like Madonna to me.

  • Geraldine

    I'm not sure of this yet... I don't know why but the whole scrunchie thing confuses me: should I like it? should I not?.... DO I like it? I really don't know. But great post nonetheless.

    Cindy Crawford always looks like she just stepped out of a swimming pool filled with bronzing gel...

    Scrunchies were so cool... when I was 10. Now-a-days I try to do whatever I can to help people realize I'm 26 and not 16 (I can't even count the number of times I've been told "there's no way you're older than 18" ugggggh)

      The struggle is real, man.

  • cherieboo

    Better than some of these rubber bands, that tend to break off your hair! THINK?

  • Isabel

    I got made fun of by my sister and cousins for having scrunchies, I use them all the time in the shower (I have a lot of hair and scrunchies won't leave a kink); Now they're wearing them. They're having a bit of a moment in England and Ireland (I think it's wearing off though).

  • Nina

    No, not scrunchies! They can't be coming back! They were horrible then and they would still be horrible now! Don't do it!

    SCRUNCHTASTIC !!!
