Do you ever see something that looks so cute on your friend that a million synapses in your brain start firing the word "NEED"? Because that is approximately what happened to me a few months ago when I saw a chic friend of mine wearing this $12 "Super Scrunchie" from Free People.
The Super Scrunchie is not only many things I love in a scrunchie, but many things I aspire, as a human, to be: billowing, unrepentant, and fancy as heck.
At first I just loved it because it was so pretty — it is the perfect intersection of sophisticated and juuuust a lil' extra — but I've noticed it's actually been great for keeping my hair from tangling overnight.
Not only that, but it's a quick fix on days when I'm not really feeling my hair at all. Suddenly that sloppy bun I shove my hair in before planting myself at my laptop all day is ~avant garde~.
TBH, I am not the only one who has fallen under the Super Scrunchie's spell. If you check the reviews, you'll see that they've amassed enough of a cult following that people are buying them in multiple colors.
The Super Scrunchie also comes in so many colors and styles that I was genuinely overwhelmed in choosing mine. Statement scrunchies are big decisions!! And Free People does not let you make them lightly.
To be clear, I would not normally drop $12 on a single scrunchie — in fact, I am obsessed with the 40-pack of velvet scrunchies you can get for $8.25 on Amazon — but this one has a special place in my heart.
Plus, you can also wear it like sleeve jewelry and pretend to be a cozy royal, which is the aesthetic of my self-important but lazy heart.
Anyway, this has just been PSA from your local scrunchie hoarder that if you're looking for a lil' splurge for your hair, wrist, and Instagram feed, this Free People scrunchie will do the trick.
