One little note I suppose I could add...scrunchies are fine for casual, daily activities.

However, in serious or high fashion environments, they are not appropriate.


Just as sneakers or athletic footwear shouldn't be worn be worn in such circumstances.  Roll Eyes Grin


They shouldn't???   Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Grin


Grin That's the rumor.  Wink

Actually, I've seen Converses at the Grammies before, and rap artists often perform in athletic shoes. Not a scrunchie in sight, however. Wink

I am 23 and I love scrunchies. I don't may much attention to the media in terms of what is fashonable and what is not. I am not one to let a magazine or the like determine what I can wear. Honestly, the decision is up to you. If you like them and want to wear them, then wear them. Everyone has a different style so what you like may not be what someone else likes and vise-versa.

I love scrunchies. If I don't have time to style my hair like being in a hurry, I just throw my hair into a scrunchy. I have a few scrunchies in different colors but now I'm looking for a little more stylish scrunchies...I haven't seen anything I'm looking for. =( But having a quick updo makes some people look casual and cute.

I only have one of those original fabric covered scrunchies left.  It's a strange shade of dusty blue velvet but it's great for ending off buns and leaving my hair like that for most of the day. Keeps my hair off my face aside from face framing tendrils and neck and looking tidy throughout the day.   Then at the end of the day when hub gets home I have these lovely deep waves.  Very romantic if you're sitting down for a dim lit dinner.

I saw a woman who had made a med. high ponytail with a big black scrunchie, pulled the loop of hair partway thru the last loop of the scrunchie, leaving the ends hanging a little, wound the loop around the scrunchie bun-wise, then used a hair stick to keep it all in place.  She had dark hair and used a black scrunchie.  It really looked good.  I tried it with my hair, which is very fine, and it worked great and looked good, too.

Could you post a picture of how you're supposed to do that?  Sorry, I'm no good at visualization.

I also pull my hair through the scrunchy when it's in a ponytail the way you used to do with those plastic things with a loop on it.  I use a small, thick, black knit "scrunchy" and the scrunchy is pretty much hidden by my hair.  I tried this before I had my hair cut into a bob two years ago but I was using a hair elastic that was too thin and made it too hard to pull my hair through.  You could keep pulling your hair through the middle of your ponytail and then pin or use a clip/comb on the ends to create a bun or rolled effect.

I had perms when scrunchies were fashionable.  I can tell from my other posts that I've been confusing other hairties with scrunchies.  Just to clear up things.  This post is about the fabric covered ones. Smiley

How do other straighties keep their fabric covered scrunchies from sliding off ponytails?  Do they really only work for securing buns?  I don't have enough hair for buns yet.  I'll have to twist my hair too tightly or have loads of ends coming undone.  Maybe I just need to get used to that look???

Drear, I have never, personally, ever had a scrunchie stay put in a ponytail.
The only time I've managed it is if I wound it up so tight, it'd pull on my hair and give me headaches. Oh, and it'd be so scrunched up it wouldn't even look like a scrunchie. If I wanted to use a scrunchie, I'd use it decoratively, over a smaller utilitarian hair tie.

I've never had a scrunchie work as a bun holder either. Without pins, my hair falls out. With pins, the scrunchie tries to slip behind the bun in the areas without pins, and starts looking weird.

I'm probably just inept.  Grin

My MIL uses them over buns but I don't know if she secures the bun with something underneath.  She uses a lot of metal clasp barettes and hair pins too.  She's a generation that took such things forgiven and she still does and I can't get her to understand that it causes damage even if she can't see it.

I suddenly remembered that I used other hair ties under the scrunchies first on the ponytail and then around the bun before placing a scrunchie over the hair tie because I have poor taste Cheesy and think a scrunchie looks better any day than your standard nylon coated (or whatever) hair tie.

Where did you find the smaller scrunchies? I am finding that my hair is starting to be damaged from regular hair ties, but I really don't like the large fabric scrunchies, they look ridiculous (in my opinion). But I can't seem to find any smaller fabric hair ties anywhere. Angry

Scunci makes smaller scrunchies in black jersey and Ulta cosmetics carries them.  Their website is Ulta.com.  If you want bright colors, I think you can find them at Walgreen's or WalMart in the kids section.

Thanks Smiley I bought some cloth headbands today, and they are small enough to double up and then use as hair ties. They don't have much staying power, so I definitely won't be able to use them when I run or dance, but for around the house chores and every day stuff, it should be enough to keep my hair out of my face if I do choose!
