While we have our fingers (and toes) crossed that tiny sunglasses will go away forever, we’re excited to see that the scrunchie trend is here to stay. But unlike in the ’80s and ’90s, you can now add to your hair accessory collection at the click of a button—and it will be on your doorstep in 48 hours (thanks to those Prime perks). Here are three hair scrunchies on Amazon that will keep your pony on point.

Editors’ Pick: Lilysilk Silk Charmeuse Scrunchie

The facts:

  • Stays in place all day
  • Reduces hair breakage
  • Comes in many colors

Maybe you’re just dipping your toes in the trend or you’re trying to be gentler on your locks. Think of this scrunchie as the gateway hair accessory that will soon have you hooked. It’s made of high-quality silk, but it’s not too pricey, and it comes in tons of colors. “It’s no-frills and that’s why I love it,” one PureWow editor says. “The black color looks chic, not childish, and the material doesn’t pull or break my ultrafine hair. It gets bonus points for being comfortable to slip on my wrist, in case of hair emergencies.”

Best Value: Kitsch Five-pack Velvet Scrunchies

The facts:

  • Covered in a velvety fabric
  • Comes in a wide array of shades
  • Comfortable hold won’t irritate your scalp 

You know how some ponytail holders put your strands in a death grip and tug at your scalp? These velvet scrunchies are the complete opposite. They’ll keep your pony looking sleek but won’t cause any breakage, even on the most delicate strands. We like that each pack comes in multiple colors and that they take us from work to workouts effortlessly. Plus, the velvet material makes us feel so ’90s (and we mean that in the best way possible).

Splurge-worthy: Slip Silk Large Scrunchies – Set Of Three

The facts:

  • Shiny, soft and durable
  • Wide surface area reduces dents and creases
  • From award-winning pillowcase company 

Forty-two bucks for hair scrunchies? Yes, you read that right. These guys are a splurge, but are oh so worth it. Three extra-large, extra silky scrunchies come in each pack. And considering they’re made by Slip, the company behind those award-winning, wrinkle-fighting silk pillowcases, we can trust the quality behind the product. PureWow’s associate managing editor, Catrina, swears by them: “They never leave dents or bumps in my hair, even if I’ve had it up all day. They’re simple yet stylish and the silk feels extra luxurious. It’s like a grown-up version of the cotton scrunchies I wore every day in middle school!” Eye-popping price tag…maybe. But your hair is definitely worth it!
