If you thought the Return of the Scrunchie was going to be short-lived – a flash in the pan throwback to a simpler time when the coolest hairdo in the world involved a crimper and a velvet hair band – we’re afraid you were wrong.
The Eighties accessory trend is growing – literally – with the arrival of supersized scrunchies which are proving popular with some very stylish Instragrammers, like New York based fashion influencer Kat Hsu (aka @iamtheflowerthief) and French stylist Andréa Ottaviani (@andreaetlou).
Free People‘s Oversize Pearl Scrunchie, £15/AED68.50, comes in black, champagne and lavender colourways, with pearl embellishment.
Etsy seller LeAmuar sells a range of silk hair ties including a Giant Beige Silk Scrunchie, £10.33/AED47.17.
On fast fashion site I Saw It First a Black Oversized Scrunchie is currently £4.16/AED19, reduced from £8/AED36.53.
They aren’t quite as big as the Room Shop Vintage originals, so if you want a scrunchie as big as your head, you’re going to have to shell out for the transatlantic shipping.
Or, if you’re feeling creative, why not grab some organza fabric, hit play on this YouTube tutorial and see if you can make your own…
