Scarf Scrunchie Tips

So, a scarf scrunchie is a cross between a scarf and a scrunchie. The traditional scrunchie is a small band of fabric wrapped elastic that you wear around your ponytail. They come in a variety of different sizes, colors, and patterns. A scarf scrunchie takes the ease of wearing a scrunchie and combines it with the fashionable look of wearing a scarf tied around your ponytail.

Why wear a hair scrunchie scarf

I love the way that hair scarves look wrapped around a ponytail. But, they don’t tend to stay tied all that well. And, that means that they come undone or slip off your ponytail. That can leave your hair messy. Or, it can mean that you lose your scarf when you’re not paying attention. This tenile scrunchie scarf is one of my favorites.

Are scrunchies good for your hair?

Compared to using an elastic band, yes a scrunchie is good for your hair. You need to be sure that you aren’t pulling your hair back too tightly. That can result in hair breakage or mild hair loss. Hair scrunchies don’t give you headaches like hair ties do. And, they don’t rip your hair out.  So, you can easily wear one every day without hurting your hair.

Is it bad to wear your hair in a bun every day?

As long as you aren’t pulling your hair back tightly, wearing your hair in a bun, with or without a scarf scrunchie, is not a problem. But, you might want to alternate with a looser hairstyle at times. That way you aren’t always tightening your hair at the same spot which could lead to breakage. You could try wearing one higher and lower on your head. And, you can alternate how loose or tight you anchor your hair each day.

How to wear a scarf scrunchie

Of course, there are as many ways to wear a scarf scrunchie as there are to wear a traditional scrunchie. You can wear it around the base of your ponytail in the same way you would wear a hair tie. Or, you can put your hair up in a bun and wear it around the base of your bun. Here’s a great variety to choose from.

For something a little bit different, you can anchor your ponytail closer to your shoulders and wear your scarf scrunchie there. Remember that you can anchor your ponytail near the top of your head or closer toward the bottom near your neck. There are so many different styles you can try whether you want a casual or chicer look. I love the animal print design.
