10 scrunchies you need in your life—because they’re actually chic (we swear)

Let’s be honest here—scrunchies have historically not been the easiest fashion sell in the world. The retro hair accessories brings back instant flashbacks to the ’80s (which, depending on who you ask, is generally not considered fashion’s finest moment) and over-the-top side ponytails. Think: Stephanie Tanner from Full House. But hear us out—scrunchies have had a major makeover and have emerged as one of the hair accessories that you need in your closet this fall.

From Bella Hadid‘s athleisure-chic high ponytail look, to Selena Gomez‘s mega-chic (and dare we say, gala-appropriate) scrunchie-braid situation, there are so many different ways to wear scrunchies. Whether your hair is short or long, or the look you’re going for is casual or glam, there’s a scrunchie out there for you.

Below are 10 of our absolute favorites—we know you’ll fall for the trend, too.
