Think of this as a visual ode to your hair accessory drawer. When you need to wash your face but don't want to crease your hair, that drawer is there for you with a soft, stretched-out scrunchie to gently pull it up. That time you cut your bangs really short before joining a co-ed soccer league, it had your accordion comb from 1998 safely ready and waiting. Greasy hair? Oh, you mean slicked-back triple-stacked ponytail? And when you simply want to feel a little special but the world is giving you nothing but heather grey, it has rhinestone twist-in jewels.
Our model, Paris, grew up in Australia with scrunchies as a mandatory part of her school uniform. Coincidentally, Australia currently ranks number one on the Better Life Index. Just putting that out there. For everyone else, it's never too late to start building up a decent stockpile. Claire's is an obvious choice, and H&M, Topshop, and Forever 21 are other solid mall options. But for the really good stuff—fuzzy terry hair ties, oversized star snaps, and no-crease rubberized clips—try an old-school beauty supply with zero Yelp presence.
