I loved scrunchies and hair ties with cute little baubles on them. I remember my hair was (and still is) too thick and slippery for one scrunchie to hold up in a decent ponytail by itself. I always had to double up on them and they would lose their elasticity not too long after. I would have tie them three times around my ponytail and the fabric would be pulled so tight, the scrunchie effect was gone. At the time, hair ties with rubberized grips hadn't made their way to the mainstream yet. The side ponytail was huge, but I never tried it because I thought it was too "out there" for my taste. I secretly admired the girls who could pull off that look.
If you're feeling nostalgic, apparently Forever 21 is selling them! Although these aren't as poofy and frilly as the ones I recall.
