Summer style memory: scrunchies

Nikki ParkinsonLife 21 Comments

This week on Styling You, I’m featuring some of the winning responses to my Summer Loving competition. Enjoy today’s memory of summer style. Today’s is the last in the series … regular programming begins Monday.

Growing up on the ’90s, summer style meant massive Billabong and Quiksilver t-shirts, garish boardies, hair mascara (don’t even ask!) and reef sandals. I am happy to say that I was the queen of summer style, especially when I donned my neon hair scrunchie to top it all off.

Did you wear scrunchies? I had one in every colour.

  1. I had two or three in different shades of every colour and still have them, but since I’ve lopped off all my hair, they now decorate other things.

  2. I remember all of those things but most especially the HAIR MASCARA! I had it in every shade… my strongest memory is that it smelled really strong and my favourite colour was blue. I am really selling it here, aren’t I?!

  3. Scrunchies are the worst!

    When I was little my older sister was a hairdresser and I used to help her make scrunchies to sell at the salon. I earns good pocket money from her but I regret all the bad hairstyles caused by my sewing.

  4. Oh, yes, scruchies! In all sorts of colours & patterns, but no stand for them as I didn’t have enough. And yes to the hair mascara.
    Have also enjoyed the Summer Style Memory series. Perhaps there’ll be a winter one?

  6. I used to love my scrunchies – did anyone else have a stand for theirs? Like a paper towel stand but it looked so cute all loaded up with scrunchies.

  7. well we didn’t have the weather back in the old country but we sure did have scrunchies!

    I used to backcomb my hair like crazy, with my head upside down and then pull it into a scrunchie and then backcomb more and then spray about a whole can of hairspray on it…eeeeuuuuh

    …plus there were electric blue eyelashes (I actually miss those) and hot pink lips

    those were the days…

    I love your summer style series Nikki.

    cheers
