Scrunchies made from bead crochet.

A scrunchie (or scrunchy) is a fabric-covered elastic hair tie, commonly used to fasten long hair. Large, elaborate styles and diminutive, unassuming forms are available in many different colors, fabrics,[1] and designs.[citation needed] They were particularly popular from the late 1980s into around the mid 1990s.

History[edit]

Jane Reid of Vancouver, Canada showed a version of the fabric-covered device (called the "Bunch Bangle" and meant to be worn as a stretchy bracelet) at a New York fashion accessories fair in 1984. Rommy Revson of New York patented the scrunchie design in the US in 1987.[2]
