We didn’t see it coming but it is not hard to understand why scrunchies (hair ties) are back on trend when comfortable fashion is currently the IN thing. Hair stylists are using hair ties to create the latest hair styles. I want to show you some tips I use for tying hair ties and give you some ideas for how you might use them to create some interesting styles.
I don’t know if you are like me and “hate” getting ready to go out because of the many hours it takes to make yourself look even more beautiful. My routine involves washing my hair -> doing my skincare->putting on makeup->brushing my hair->styling my hair, choosing my hair accessories and finally picking my outfit, this normally takes me at least one hour.
My boyfriend relaxes on the sofa watching football or some action film for 55 mins and takes the last 5 minutes to put on his clothes and he is ready to go. I always thought it was so unfair but it is our choice as women to want to look pretty and when we are ready it feels wonderful expressing our femininity through our hairstyle.
Types of hair ties
There are several types of hair ties, including: elastic bands, cloth-covered bands, plastic hair ties, metal hair ties, scrunches and ponytail holders. Each type has its own benefits and drawbacks depending on your hair type, whether your have damaged hair and your fashion style and look you hope to achieve.
Elastic bands are the most common type of hair tie. They’re inexpensive and easy to find, but they can be damaging to your hair if used too often. Cloth-covered bands are gentler on your hair, but they’re more expensive and can be harder to find.
Plastic hair ties are another option. They’re gentle on your hair and don’t damage it, but they can be uncomfortable to wear for long periods of time. Metal hair ties are the most durable option, but they can be uncomfortable and cause damage to your hair if not used correctly.
Cloth hair ties are usually made from cotton or nylon fabric, while elastic hair ties are usually made from rubber or latex.
How to tie up hair without damaging it
Tip 1 – Gentle Ponytail
- Brush your hair into a ponytail
- Remove the hair around your hairline from the ponytail using your little finger.
- Start sliding into the ponytail a few inches from the hairline and bring the hair forward from there.
- Leave the hair close to your hairline outside of the hair tie and bring the front hair back to meet it and secure it into place.
- When you put the hair close to your hairline back into the ponytail there is no pressure on your hair because the hair furthest from your hairline is taking the pressure so this avoids damaging your hairline.
Hair tie or scrunchie – What’s the difference
Hair ties and scrunchies are both hair accessories that serve a similar purpose: to hold your hair back. However, there are some key differences between the two. For one, hair ties are usually made from a thinner material, such as elastic, while scrunchies are usually made from thicker fabric. This can make a big difference in terms of how they feel to use. Hair ties can sometimes be uncomfortable, especially if they’re tight, while scrunchies are generally more gentle on the hair and scalp.
Another key difference is that hair ties typically don’t have any give, meaning they can put a lot of tension on your hair. Scrunchies, on the other hand, are more forgiving and can help reduce damage. Hair ties can be hard to remove, while scrunchies are much easier to take out.
With the strong comeback of the scrunchy, things will be so much easier now. If I decide to spend my day at home, I don’t need to wash my hair and create a hairstyle. Using a scrunchie I can create a casual “freestyle” look and wear it the whole time without ever taking it off.

Scrunchies go well with so many hairstyles such as ponytails, pigtails, buns, half-updos… you name it and you can make it work. You can make your own style, there is no bad way to wear scrunchies because the point is for your hair to look casually smart.
Besides being trendy and easy to use, another reason you deserve a scrunchy is that they are good for your hair. Because scrunchies are quite loose you don’t need to pull your hair too much, meaning there is less pressure on your hair and scalp when compared with a hair tie. There are lots of different types of scrunchies and hair ties to choose from. Some are suited to curly hair, others to thin or thick hair. Whatever your hair type you’ll find a hair tie that works for you.
