Scrunchies made from bead crochet.

A scrunchie (or scrunchy) is a fabric-covered elastic hair tie used to fasten long hair.[1] Large, elaborate styles and diminutive, unassuming forms are available in many different colors, fabrics, and designs.[2]

Rommy Revson patented the Scünci in 1986, which may be the origin of the style; in 1989 she sold them under the trademark "Rommi".[2] Scrunchies were particularly popular in the 1980s and 1990s, including larger, more elaborate versions.[3] Debbie Gibson in particular wore them; Madonna wore a large velvet scrunchie in Desperately Seeking Susan.[4] An episode of Sex and the City mocked the fashion.[2][3][5]
