Is the scrunchie making a comeback?

Is Hillary Clinton reviving a dead trend?

The Secretary of State was recently spotted in Madrid sporting a scrunchie — the '80s signature hairpiece once described by the New York Times' Alex Kuczynski as a "gaudy rubber band covered in puckered fabric and worn most enthusiastically by aerobics instructors on television."

InStyle magazine, however, keenly observed that several high-profile celebrities have adopted the throwback accessory. Sienna Miller and Catherine-Zeta Jones (though they don't work for W magazine) have felt comfortable flaunting their scrunchies in public.

  • When I worked as a nurse, I was also a single mom with 4 boys and no child support. I made my own scrubs. My hair is past my rearend. I wear it pulled up in a braided ponytail. I would make matching scrunchies. I had soooooooooooo many people ask me where I found matching scrunchies for my scrubs! I even had a small side business making scrubs and matching scrunchies!

  • I would wear a scrunchie in my house IF I had nothing else! I mean, they are kindof comfy, but OMG NO! I like the regular black hair bands. =)
