Yikes! The Return of The Scrunchie
I love a good ’90s throwback just as much as the next girl—Saved by the Bell, Spice Girls, Buffy, andthe list goes on. The scrunchie, however, is one ’90s phenomenon that I don’t have any nostalgia for and I’m not keen for the trend to make a comeback.
But designers have something different in mind. Vivienne Westwood, Marc Jacobs, Ashish—they all are putting their support behind this flamboyant hair accessory. And scunchies have even been cropping up in more price-friendly stores like Topshop and Asos too, which makes me wonder: Will the scrunchie make a return to the mainstream?
While I won’t be embracing this style anytime soon, I totally recognize that many people out there have been waiting for this day to come. What are your feelings on this ’90s-girl look? Are you pro or con? If you’re interested in getting one for yourself, check out these options, just please promise me you won’t go spending $95 on this one from Missoni.

As much as we love nail art, we’re better at admiring designs than coming up with them ourselves. That’s why we’ve enlisted Anna Norman, the smarty pants behind Glitter, She Wrote, to be a regular contributor. Every Monday, she’ll be sharing her latest lacquer inspiration—you won’t be satisfied with plain ol’ polish again.
The bright, eye-grabbing colors and intricate nail art that dominated the fashion runways last year have stepped aside. What’s replaced them? Minimalist-chic. In other words, pale, barely-there nails. From Marc Jacobs to Rag & Bone, the fashion scene is all about nudes and neutrals. Here’s how to get the look this spring:
While the usual low-slung pony is great for day-to-day, holiday party season provides the ideal opportunity to experiment with a different style. That’s why we’ve teamed up with one of our favorite sites, Beauty High. Each week, they’ll be sending over a few runway shots to inspire you to try something new for your upcoming festive fetes.
This holiday season, the hairstyles du jour aren’t glam curls or impossible-to-achieve updos. If there’s one thing that we learned from the fall 2012 runways, it’s that sleek and straight will always be an old standby, and when done right, can take our look to an entirely new level.
Although the line between shiny and greasy can be a hard one to walk, stylists have shown us how just a touch of sheen can add class to any ponytail or chignon. We drew inspiration from the runway shows below to get us through our packed holiday party schedules and beyond.
