Reviving 1980's hair accessories


Why do female gymnasts still wear scrunchies in their hair.


I understand wanting to keep the hair back - that just makes sense. However the sparkles, gel and SCRUNCHIES in particular bemuse me.


Having said this - I am completely in awe of their skills and love watching this sport.

I suppose they wear it because it's the only glamour they can have on.

I love watching them too.

Scrunchies weren't invented when my hair was long enough to tie back, I had to use an elastic band!

Much as I hate anything to do with 'ball' sports, I like to watch most other events. Delighted to see GB team doing so well TC. Hope to see you in the 'blowing your own trumpet' event in London in 2012!

Scrunchies....gotta love them

MD - That's fair enough I suppose. Some of the leotard things are pretty unflattering.

AK - They're weird. Elastic bands look nicer.

Mrs S - you never know......

Bond - or not!

Now I did see one gymnast who had about 17 barrettes or whatever you call them to keep her hair pinned down. I kinda like the scrunchies.

Queenie - I think I could.

Trav - I saw her too - loads of colourful hairclips. I'm glad someone likes them (outside the gymnastics arena).
