Welcome back the 90’s! Scrunchies are the hot new trend among teens!

If you have a teenage daughter or son you might have noticed a strange new trend – scrunchies around their wrists. For girls it makes sense but boys?

Yup! Boys are wearing them too! Here’s Why All The Boys Are Wearing Scrunchies Around Their Wrist…

In case you haven’t noticed, the 90’s trends are making a comeback! Teenage girls are becoming VSCO Girls and are wearing things from the 90’s including Scrunchies.

But, those aren’t just for their hair. There is actually a much bigger meaning behind them than just puffy hair ties.

Here is why boys are wearing Scrunchies:

Girls are wearing scrunchies around their wrists and when they meet a boy they like, they give him one of the scrunchies off their wrist. If the boy wears it on his wrist, it means he likes the girl back and basically tells all the other girls that he’s taken.

Yup, forget the hoodie or jersey wearing, this is the new way to say “you’re mine” lol.

One mom even shared this revelation on Facebook and of course, it was shared and commented on by parents everywhere:


Are you tired of wasting money on hair scrunchies? Feel like you’re buying them every week? Wondering why your daughter can’t keep up with them? ?

Well let me let you in on a little secret. ….They are being found in the dryer of every boy Mom’s home. I’m about to start a lost and found page for them on Facebook or better yet return them to school with a love note for me. ??

Apparently it’s cool to give your scrunchie to someone you think is cute, below is a stash that we have racked up just this week. ?

So basically stop wasting your money and clogging up my dryer. ?

There was even a thread on Reddit asking the same question with parents, kids and even teachers chiming in on the matter…

While it may be annoying to find these in your dryer, it’s also far more innocent than some things you could find. So, maybe we just let them do their harmless thing?
