1. The Scrunch Ponytail
This is the go-to look for being tried out with a scrunchie. You can blend the flavors of modern and retro by styling a high pony. A messy ponytail can have your back on casual occasions or you can comb and smooth your hair into the scrunchie for a more office-friendly look.
2. The Half-Pony
You can try out this retro-chic look with either a half or full pony which can be worn either tight and high or loose and messy. If you are thinking of adding to the length and volume of your hair with extensions, then this look can serve as your ideal choice. The USP of scrunchies lies in the fact that they look equally appealing on both short and long hair and you don’t have to tie them tightly or several times to complete the look. The half pony helps flaunt your gorgeous locks while framing your face.
3. The Top Knot
We mostly associate a messy bun with the signature look of a busy girl. This look can be worn anywhere whether you are running errands, heading to business meetings, or burning those excess carbs with some hardcore cardio at the gym. For this look, you just need to secure a bun on the top of your head whether you get it tight or messy. You can nail an effortless look by leaving a few pieces of hair loose in the front.
4. The Bun
Nail this classic style by using a scrunchie to secure a bun. It looks best when tried with a bun former. Complete the look with a scrunchie that holds loose hairs down. You can get scrunchies with long scarves or bows for making this look whimsical and extra pretty.
5. The Braided Ponytail
If you are tired of simple ponytails, then the braided ones can serve as your nirvana. The best thing about this style is that it can elevate your look almost instantaneously. For trying out this look, you need to braid the base of your hair into a loose ponytail for a put-together scrunchie hairstyle. This versatile hairstyle will always be in vogue and the same also holds for scrunchies. You can try various combinations of braided scrunchie hairstyles like a Dutch braid, French braid, four-strand braid, or fishtail for either fancy or casual occasions.
6. Half-Up Braid
Make a ponytail by gathering the top half of your hair while leaving the bottom portion loose. Now braid the tail of your ponytail and tie the braid with a scrunchie while gathering all loose hairs into it.
7. Fishtail Scrunchie
Add a dash of oomph to your regular fishtail braid by finishing off your look with a scrunchie. The fishtail braids deliver a head-turning twist to the regular braids and look equally flattering on long and medium-length hair.
8. Tuck Under
Nail this simple ponytail look by using a scrunchie of any size. Just tie your hair up into a ponytail and keep the last part tucked into your scrunchie rather than letting the last part loose for a half bun look.
9. Long & Loose
Low ponytails don’t impart much pressure on your hairline and scalp making them the perfect alternative to a high pony. Make the look seem more interesting by creating a loose yet thick braid with hair extensions. You can add greater texture to your hairstyle with the braid which delivers a unique look.
10. High Pony & Braid
This style offers an interesting twist to your typical ponytail look. Simply tie your hair up and slick it with any styling gel before securing the ponytail with a scrunchie and braiding the ponytail. You can create a fun new look by letting the braid fall on the side of your head or behind.
11. The Low Braided Bun
Strike the perfect harmony between trendy braids and buns with this simple scrunchie hairstyle which is both elegant and easy to do. For trying this look, you just need to divide your hair into three equal sections and do a simple braid. Once the braiding is done, secure the end using a clear elastic hair tie. Finally, wrap the length of the braid around its base to resemble a bun and secure it with a scrunchie.
12. Micro Ponies
Get some clear elastic and gather the top of your hair into a ponytail by leaving the bottom half loose. Now take a small section of your loose hair and make another ponytail by tying up the first ponytail with the elastic. Keep up with the pattern based on the length of your hair. Once you are done making the small ponytails, gather everything into one large ponytail using a scrunchie.
13. Mix and Match Scrunches and Hats
For the perfect beach vacay, you can mix and match hats and scrunchies. A floppy straw hat can be paired with your regular scrunchie style for hitting the beach during summer or with a wide-brim hat during the fall months. You can nail a contrasting style by selecting scrunchies in bright hues and also playing with seasonal colors and fabrics.
14. The Pigtails
Walk down the path of nostalgic schooldays by trying out the pigtails style with two scrunchies. This hairstyle suits all hair types whether you gather all your hair into two parts or make two sections using just the hair on the top.
15. Braided Pigtails
Merge cute pigtails with side braids for a look that’s cuter than ever.
16. Simple Braids
Tie your usual braids with any scrunchie of your preference for a simple look that can get you ready for the day.
17. Large and In Charge
If you like to make a big statement, then you need to add an oversized scrunchie to your accessories closet immediately. The giant scrunchies are made from fun materials like silk and organza in every possible shade be it pastel or vibrant hues.
18. The Bubble Ponytail
Show off your cute collection of scrunchies with a bubble ponytail. Just apply some hair gel to your roots and brush your hair towards the center of your hair. Next, place scrunchies evenly across the entire length of your ponytail to form a bubble, and gently pull each section of your ponytail from the sides to spread the hair between the scrunchies and nail a fuller look.
19. The Low Messy Bun
Low messy buns can help you stand out on every occasion. This quick hairstyle works best when your hair is dirty making it the perfect choice for days when you don’t feel like washing your mane. There are endless ways of styling low messy buns and for that extra zing, you can top it off with a scrunchie.
20. Space Buns
Enhance the fun aspect of your look by splitting your hair down the middle and pulling each side up into a bun. You can secure your buns with a scrunchie to keep them in place as you take on your day. For a chicer and more sophisticated look, you can try low space buns or opt for a more modern style by placing the space buns higher on the crown of your head.
21. Scrunchies & Box Braids
Protective hairstyles like box braids can keep delicate hair strands tucked away during colder months if you have natural hair. The box braids can be paired with a scrunchie to keep your hair out of your face for a more casual look.
22. Bridal Scrunchie
Scrunchies have entered the formal field with veiled designs which are perfect for the bride who likes mixing things up. You can opt for a fun yet formal look by mixing the satin scrunchie with the veil. Here you can create an updo or loose bun with a scrunchie and let the veil flow behind.
23. The Multi-Twist
Recreate this half-up look with a simple pull-through using mini scrunchies. Just tie your hair in a loose half pony and pull the hair up from under the ponytail. Next, tie this section into a mini scrunchie and repeat the first step. You can use multiple scrunchies according to the length of your hair.
24. Attention to your bangs
Put your loose, layered, or fringe bands in the front and center with scrunchies. Simply tie all your hair up or half of it with a scrunchie so that loose strands don’t snatch away the limelight from your bangs.
25. Topsy Tail
Gather the top half of your hair into a ponytail while leaving the bottom part loose. Now make a small hole at the center of your hair just above the elastic using your fingers. Take the ponytail, flip it and pull it through the hole. After you have pulled the ponytail through, tighten the elastic by pushing it up for a lovely twisty hairdo. You can tug on the twist to puff up your hair using your fingers and top it off with a scrunchie over the elastic placed already in your hair.
26. Half Bun
Get this half-bun look the next time you go for a day’s trip or a picnic. Finish off your look with a long-tailed scrunchie.
27. Sparkle & Scrunchie
Part your hair into pigtails or simply part down the middle and make a low pony for being tied up with a scrunchie. Now enhance the glam quotient of your look by adding glitter to wherever your hair is parted for that holiday-ready look.
28. Multi-Scrunchie Ponytail
Those with long hair can tie multiple scrunchies through their ponytail for this look which offers an interesting twist to the low ponytail.
29. Stacked curls
You can nail versatile hairstyles by getting scrunchies in different sizes. For doing this you need to layer your hair in a top bun with multiple small scrunchies. A multi-scrunchie look can be created with a ponytail.
Reasons behind the popularity of scrunchies:
- Compared to a standard hair tie, scrunchies don’t cause breakage and feel softer on the hair. The layer of fabric between your hair and the elastic ensures that the scrunchie glides smoothly over your hair without any tugging or pulling.
- Often hair ties leave kinks in the hair. You don’t have to worry about this while using scrunchies as the extra layer of fabric reduces the line on your hair dramatically.
- If you are having a bad hair day, then scrunchies can fix your problem immediately.
- It’s common to have headaches on using regular hair ties for hours. This problem gets sorted with scrunchies which are softer on your hair.
Scrunchie is a fabric-covered elastic hair tie that can fasten short, medium, and long hair types. A large number of celebrities have hopped on to the scrunchie revival bandwagon. This is why scrunchies have been flowing off the shelves faster than any other hair accessory and styling products. You can get scrunchies in varying sets of fabrics in different sizes and patterns. That’s why the popularity of scrunchies has surpassed as being a plain hair accessory to be worn at the wrists for that perfect boho-chic look.
