Welcome back scrunchies, 2019’s biggest trend! You never thought it would happen, did you? You rocked those scrunchies in the 90s, and secretly still wore them around the house, and to bed. Well, they’re back with a vengeance, and I have all of the details for you.

How Did Scrunchies, 2019’s Biggest Trend Happen?

It has now been a couple decades since scrunchies first became popular. That means it’s about time for them to come back in style. We can thank a few things for bringing them back. Celebrities have started wearing them, and they were featured during New York’s Fashion Week. Then of course, we have the VSCO girl trend. Not sure what that is? I wasn’t either, and I’m still not sure I can explain it, so I’ll just leave this right here for you.

Teen Vogue reports that the major reason scrunchies are coming back is the nostalgia everyone is feeling. Of course, when you see Backstreet Boys reunions, movie remakes, and goodness, Disney+, you’re going to start feeling the nostalgia and want to live the good old days again. Plus, who else is tired of hair elastics yanking out your hair?! I don’t know about you but I’m welcoming these scrunchies, 2019’s biggest trend.
