If you haven’t noticed, the ‘90s are back and all you have to do is look to the latest beauty trends for confirmation. From ‘90s-inspired smoky gray hair to goth makeup looks, everything about the decade is coming back full force. The latest ‘90s trend to resurface? Scrunchie hair ties, of course! Here are four easy hairstyles that put this iconic hair accessory to use.


Who doesn’t love a messy bun? Whether you’re headed to class or the gym, a scrunchie is the perfect way to spruce up this classic hairstyle. Here’s how to get the look:

Step #1: Create your messy bun

Simply throw your hair into a high messy bun and use your scrunchie—in your color of choice—to secure it into place. The higher the bun, the more ‘90s this style will be. To add some extra sass to your messy bun, tease your roots before putting your hair up for a boost of volume.

Step #2: Add some finishing touches

To take the look a step further, pull a few strands loose to frame your face. Sport this messy bun hairstyle while lounging around the house, running errands, or laying out by the pool!

Want to keep your hair down but also out of your face? Sounds like the half-up top knot is the scrunchie hairstyle for you! This trendy hairstyle is all over our social media feeds, proving it’s still as popular as ever.

Step #1: Section your hair

Section your hair into a top and bottom section by creating a part from the top of one ear to the other.

Step #2: Create a top knot

Take the top section of your hair and pull it into a top knot bun, securing it with your scrunchie. Don’t worry if your bun is messy, this is a totally laidback, carefree hairstyle. Wear this hairstyle to grab a cup of coffee or a drink—regardless of the venue, your hair will look fab.


As the name suggests, this hairstyle is super fun! Not to mention, this party pony ‘do will keep your mane out of your face while still allowing you to wear your hair down. Here’s how to do it:

Step #1: Section your locks

Just as with the half-up top knot hairstyle, start by sectioning your hair into a bottom and top section.

Step #2: Create your party pony

Use the top section of your hair to create your pony, gathering all of your hair on the top of your head. Then, secure the ponytail into place using your scrunchie. Adjust and tighten your ponytail by gently tugging where your hair meets the scrunchie. Not sure when to break out this look? Save it for a girl’s night out or a date night!


Of course, there are times when you just want a quick, easy, and virtually-foolproof hairstyle. No worries, a messy high ponytail will allow you to sport your scrunchie in a way that feels familiar.

Step #1: Add some texture

Give your mane texture and volume by spraying the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Boost It Air-Blown Texture Mist throughout your locks.

Step #2: Create your ponytail

Begin by gathering your hair into a ponytail. Make it so the base of your ponytail is at the top of your head, then secure it with a scrunchie. This hair style is perfect for the gym, running errands, or hanging out with your friends.
