We are living in a golden age of scrunchies. They've risen from the ashes of the 1990s to adorn the heads of women (and men -- scrunchies are great for man buns!) everywhere.
Scrunchies have matured since they were last in style; these aren't the same neon poofs of fabric that were featured in so many pre-teen 90's school pictures.
The scrunchies of the 2020s are mature yet playful and are perfect for any DIY night adventure.
