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