Give us a hair accessory and we’ll be happy. From flashy barrettes to outsize headbands, we’ve embraced all ways of decorating our hair. But there’s one hair accessory we still need to master: scrunchies.
Scrunchies have been making their way back into our strands for a few years. In fact, they were around long before snap clips and claw clips were trending again. Mansur Gavriel sent scrunchies down its Fall 2017 runway and Hailey Baldwin’s love of scrunchies dates back to before she became a Bieber.
