For a long time now, ponytails and scrunchies have gone together like a horse and carriage!

  • Stylish scrunchies can bring flair to the most simple ponytails or updos. Wide, twisted or folded scrunchies may just be the eye-catching detail your ponytail or half up-do needs. Since the scrunchy has been around for a long time, you will have no trouble finding your trademark scrunchy.

You will be able to find a scrunchy for any occasion! Let your creativity run wild and dig deep into your stash of materials - they are just begging to be turned into scrunchies!

    On catwalks, especially the models for fashion designer Jean-Paul Gaultier, wear the wide retro-style scrunchy. These models gather their ponytails a little higher than the classic ponytails. Paired with back combed roots and cute curls (see the large top photo) this gives an elegant yet cool ponytail style.
