Those of us who lived through the 1990s may remember scrunchies. These hair accessories were a big thing then and every woman – from a student to a working adult sported them.

We may not have seen them in a while and may even miss them a little – after all they’re a convenient way to bunch up our hair and are gentle enough not to leave kinks in it!

The trend make a brief comeback when celebrities like Selena Gomez was seen sporting it.

But after the trend dies down for a bit, scrunchies are back in 2021 and are given a huge upgrade – all thanks to luxury designer’s brands who are totally on board with them.
