Jumbo Scrunchies Are Back And Set To Rule The Season

Jumbo scrunchies have made their way into the group chat. We know putting your hair into a ponytail with a small, thin scrunchie can be frustrating. You get about a couple of loops around and your ponytail still feels loose. So you leave your hair down or switch it for a standard hair tie. While they certainly have their pros, hair ties can leave indent marks after being used all day. Also, if you use one on freshly washed hair, you're stuck with it until your next wash day. On the other hand, jumbo scrunchies are perfect for any hair type since you can use them for multiple hairstyles, and they're making their way to the top of the list of the best spring and summer hair accessory trends.

Scrunchies were popular in the '80s, along with printed tops, high-waisted trousers, bright headbands, and wrist sweatbands. If you watched "Saved by the Bell," you know what we're talking about. The '80s were a time when every outfit was oversized and full of fun, vibrant colors. Unsurprisingly, scrunchies made a comeback a couple of years ago and have stayed in style as a hair accessory staple. They're made in various colors, fabrics, and sizes that fit anyone's personality. 

Now, jumbo scrunchies are being worn as statement pieces, with the fun, new trend being for fashionistas to show off the different ways they rock them. Here are some of our favorite looks.

Add interest to a standard ponytail

A ponytail is the perfect lazy girl hairstyle for the days you don't feel like spending too much time styling your hair. You can wrap your hair in your favorite jumbo scrunchie and add a few hairclips close by to elevate the look. Most ponytails can look mundane, but combining a couple of trendy accessories can give it a new feel. A jumbo scrunchie plus a few pearl hairclips is a chic look.

Elevate a low bun

Regular-sized scrunchies can be hard to wear in bun hairstyles if you have thicker or longer hair. Using a jumbo scrunchie holds more of your hair without letting it come undone or making it difficult to wrap. Depending on your preference, you can create an effortless messy low bun or a tighter bun. A cream-colored silk scrunchie gives off an elegant vibe.

Choose brightly colored scrunchies

The warm weather calls for exposed fashion and vibrant colors, so it's the perfect time to upgrade your scrunchie collection with new shades. A bright and gorgeous purple jumbo scrunchie can add a pop of color to any outfit. For even more interest, try out a new hairstyle and place the scrunchie right in the middle of it. After all, it's a statement piece and deserves to be front and center. 

Go wild with animal print

When wearing more neutral outfits, add an animal print scrunchie for contrast. Cheetah print is fun and flirty, and stands out against darker hair colors. You can style your hair with a few heatless curls (Use your scrunchies for this, too!) and create a half-up ponytail for a playful look. For another style, you can make a loose braid with a half ponytail and place the scrunchie at the end to tie it all together. The braid adds a delicate touch.

Add a subtle touch to curly and textured 'dos

If you have curly or textured hair, you might find that some scrunchies can get lost in your gorgeous locks, only working if you slick back your hair or part it in multiple sections to show them off. However, jumbo scrunchies don't only have to be used to keep your hair in place; they can also be just for show. Throw your hair up in a topknot or pineapple style using a standard hair tie and then wrap a scrunchie over it. Voila!
