Hey Everyone Abbey here, and today, I'll trying out here at scrunches for a week the is a new style post in which. I both show you how to do the hairstyle, and then. I wear it out in the wild scrunched started as a street style movement a couple years ago, and have slowly been gaining traction since, and while. I think we normally associate them with bad hairstyles of the s, and s. I want to see if they can have a place in. So, I'll going to take seven different inspirations try a new hairstyle each day, and see how. I feel about scrunches at the end of it let's get started welcome to day one where our theme is runway shows we've definitely seen some scrunches on the runway, and my personal favorite was at the Menier Gabrielle at spring, and summer teen show which featured monochromatic looks, and coordinating scrunches. So today, I'll taking a little bit of info from the show, and doing a low ponytail now the models were sporting very weightless naturally voluminous hair and. So to recreate that effect instead of using styles. I used my shampoo, and conditioner. I used my new writer dye this Herbal Essences Refresh blue ginger, and micellar water shampoo, and the micellar water breaks down oil. So well and. So thoroughly but the shampoo is still Paige balanced, and color safe. So you can use it on the daily, and it gets your hair just like the perfect amount of clean it also has by overdue in it which adds antioxidants to your hair, and freights free radicals, and then the real MVP is there refresh in the shower foam conditioner it's physically. So much more lightweight than a normal conditioner it's some moisturizers your hair still makes it smooth but it does. So without weighing it down, and then to add a gentle wave to my hair, I'll taking this one, and a half inch barrel.
I'll going to curl my hair around it, and then, I'll going to slide it back, and forth on the hair, and when you pull this off you have this really nice, and gentle natural-looking wave. So, I'll going to do that in alternating directions around my head. So there we go light fluffy weightless waves took less than five minutes and, I'll a big fan it's gun shoot, I'll going to bring all my hair together into a very low ponytail that hangs down from the nape of my neck lightly, and that's the hairstyle this makes me feel very Instagram Abul right now. I feel very feminine but. I feel a little bit cool at the same time to stay true to the inspiration for today's look. I wore a monochromatic light blue outfit, and accentuated it with a white classic handbag, and white loafers maybe if Gossip Girl was around now maybe the is what. I be wearing is this Blair Waldorf now does the scrunched replace the headband who knows all in all. I thought that this runway look was surprisingly wearable and, I'll definitely take inspiration from it again in the future. I also like that this hair style was feminine but also had a little bit of a cool factor to it if you couldn't already tell its s day today's look is inspired by the at leisure trend which was popular both in the s, and today, and the hairstyle was inspired by something that. I definitely saw in the s, and saw recently on Bella Hadid and, I'll wearing a wig to replicate that s hair length but obviously you can replicate this on your own natural hair. So let's get into it your first step is obviously going to be to straighten it, I've already done that.
When. I did. I made sure to bump the ends under with the flat iron, and now you just pull it into a half updo you're going to put your fingers right on top of your ears, and slide them together. So they meet or right on top of your head. I recommend going in with the comb to really get everything super smooth, and now that everything is slicked back, I'll just going to take a normal hair tie, and secure it in place, and then, I'll going to put the scrunched on top of that, and there you go Bella Hadid or Bella had don't. So obviously today's goal was to be inspired by the s and. So I went with this at leisure look it's some joggers wear them as a high waist, and then threw on a bomber jacket over it, and that was my somewhat minimal at leisure look good clothes to listen this the sound of the s every bit of my childhood was that sound okay. So obviously, I'll having all the s feels right now, and that is like why, I'll whipping this hairstyle. So much. I do see this for somebody that has like shorter hair, and like you pull your hair back, and wear it like this to the gym with the scrunched it would be. So cute and. So cool, and like minimal extra effort today's hairstyle is inspired by retail images of scrunches. So essentially if you're looking on the website, and you see a scrunched for sale how did they style the hair with that scrunched it was a lot of low buns, and messy buns and. So I decided to put that together, and do a low messy bun alright. So we got our third day hair going on it is not looking bad for third day hair but. I do want to use some dry shampoo, I'll going to use this Herbal Essences revitalized cucumber, and green tea dry shampoo the is going to help absorb oil, and it gives a really nice fresh scent to the hair for today's hairstyle. I will be using a normal hair tie, and this printed scrunched with this normal hair tie we're going to create a low ponytail that's a couple inches up from the very bottom of your hairline, and then take a minute to look in the mirror, and make sure you like how it looks from the front now grab that scrunched, and we're going to create a double Shenyang take your scrunched, and put it over the base of the ponytail, and pull just a little bit of the hair through.
So you have this little loop then rotate your scrunched, and put both the loop, and the ends of your hair through the scrunched then take any stray ends, and just pin them out of the way, and there is our double Shenyang. I think my immediate reaction is that. I like it. So as. I was scrolling through retail images. I kept really seeing this like second day coffee, and dry shampoo kind of styling to the hair. So don't lean into that. I styled it with a graphic tee, and jeans, and then a statement bag, and just some black booties. And I felt like that really took it to that second day dry shampoo, and coffee but, I'll still kind of stylish place overall this day was really a win for me. I felt like the scrunched added a lot of style to the outfit while making the hairstyle much easier today's inspiration pop stars today, I'll taking inspiration from this side braid that Arianna grandee wore recently with a scrunched my hair has been prepped the same way it was on day one. I use my blue ginger, and micellar water shampoo in my in shower foam conditioner but in order to create this mess upside right, I'll going to use a little help from my friend this works pretty easy just braid your hair all the way down, and secure it at the end with the scrunched, and of course any side braid is cute you totally don't have to do this with extensions, I'll not going to lie this feels a little over penciled meets, I'll always down for a good side braid, and a super long side braid.
I am also always down for. So the scrunched is just like icing on the cake for me right now. So I decided to style this with kind of a pop star off-duty outfit the is a sweatshirt dress with thigh high boots, and it's an outfit that. I actually wear fairly frequently. So I love a good side braid. And I love a gratuitously long braid but. I do feel like the is a lot to wear just for every day. Because it's like a baby you have to take care of it but for Instagram for a day where. I want to feel extra, and fabulous yeah absolutely Id wear this again back at it again with the day to hair today's inspiration comes to you from fashion bloggers slash a street style. I was particularly inspired from an article on the Man Repelled, and at the end she posted a picture of her hair, and a top knot, and this very like matchy-matchy but very fashion situation. So, I'll at least going to try if it talked not no problem the fashion blogger outfit, I'll going to do my best first things first, I'll going to go in with my Herbal Essences revitalize cucumber, and green tea dry shampoo seriously. I can't get over how good this stuff smells first things first you're going to put your hair up into a high ponytail now you could leave this sleek but it's me. And I decided to loosen things up a little bit, and now for our top knot, I'll first going to backcomb just a little bit for straight fine hair it just helps me give a little bit of mould ability to my hair now, I'll going to twist it loosely, and wrap it almost into like an egg shape on top of my head. So instead of taking it forward like this like a donut, I'll going to take it up, and over, and pin it in place, and then with the ends, I'll just going to twist them, and wrap them forward, and across pin that in place as well for today, I'll using a pink furry scrunched. Because. I matches the pink, and the flowers on my dress. And I liked the difference in textures of having a furry scrunched, and there is our quick little top knot the thing, I'll immediately noticing is that it does help me to kind of look taller, and give me a better jaw line.
So, I'll into that for the outfit. I did my best fashion blogger impersonation. And I put together this floral asymmetrical dress with retro boots, and a classic handbag, and some rose metallic sunglasses. I put these shades on and, I'll like kandi who. I don't know her, I'll going to be honest. I feel like bloggers are doing calculus with their outfits and, I'll just trying to add like they're amazing. So even though. I felt a little out of place in the outfit. I really liked this hairstyle. Because. I saw what the scrunched can do to change the context of an outfit. And I also have been wearing this hairstyle the most since. I finished filming this post grab your high tops, and leg warmers it's a tea day. I was with s day. I wanted to pair a current fashion with s fashion. So for the s inspiration obviously. I took the curls, and then. I thought about like a half updo silhouette but. I decided to do a half up top knot instead to make it slightly more modern. So that's then let's get into it, I'll going to take a quarter inch curling wand, and work in sections from the bottom up curling my hair in different directions as. I go, and after each section, I'll going through the curls, and breaking them into two or three pieces each that way. I have more curls. So more volume it also helps to break up that kind of Shirley Temple look you get after you use a small curling wand well curls achieved, and now for the half updo, I'll going to section my hair from the temples to the top of my head and, I'll going to secure it with a normal hair tie, and for the top knot, I'll just going to create an easy Shenyang. So, I'll going to go around the base of the ponytail a couple times, and then on my last rotation, I'll just going to leave the hair looped, and that is our top knot today, I'll going to use some soft control gel cream this helps to moisturize, and fight frizz it's great for those of you guys who do have naturally curly or wavy hair, and it's great for me. Because otherwise my hair will frizz out there we go this look is huge. I like it. I don't think this hair is bad s at all but the scrunched, and then the clothing. I paired it with did help take it to that ‘s place, I've heard it was light high waited mom jeans a white tank top, and a matching vintage denim jacket, and the overall effect is very eighties. I know on a Tuesday you were probably we hoping for some bad s here. I got you overall. I would definitely wear this hairstyle again maybe not with the denim-on-denim but. I do really enjoy it. I had a blast. So s today was definitely Owen, and to close this all out its Kale Melissa Day. I wanted to live that full Breda holic life, and put together a hairstyle that. I would normally have like on my blog in my real life or on Instagram.
So let's get to it alright well those curls really held up. I am really going full Breda holic. So we're going to add in some hair to this situation, I'll just going to take my straightened, and like run it quickly over the curls to loosen them up a little first things first low ponytail with this fluffy scrunched, and now, I'll going to create a pull-through braid with the rest of my hair. I do have a full tutorial on that if you want some detail but here's a quick little run-through you split the hair in half, and see here the top half with an elastic then split open the space over the elastic, and pull in the back half, and now repeat that again add on your elastic to the top half spy it open over the elastic, and pull through the bottom half, and just keep going until all the hair is done, and once you've reached the end just to cure both halves with an elastic, and then you go back through, and pull apart the bubbles. So you have this faux braided look. I like the overall look of this. I feel like it's cozy, and comfortable, and a little bit stylish. So, I've heard it with a really normal outfit for me. I just wore a white fuzzy sweater high-waited jeans, and slip-on loafers. So babe do you know which day the is the is Abbey Melissa day yeah how could you tell there's in the obvious, and. Because you wear this outfit all the time. I think the is another example of the power of the scrunched it took what was really a very basic outfit, and gave it a little bit more style, and a little bit more pizzazz. And I feel like it made it a little more me, and that concludes our week of scrunches. So after wearing scrunches for a week. I have some thoughts now. I went into this thinking that. I was going to wear this faux pas ugly item that people would be staring at me as though Id sprouted horns but honestly people complimented me on my scrunched. And I thoroughly enjoyed trying out new hairstyles every day, and actually finding some hairstyles, and a new accessory that. I want to wear on the regular. So perhaps we as a culture if but a little too much fear, and trepidation into a tiny piece of fabric. Because it's actually quite fun to wear. So if you want to play around with scrunches after watching this post. I highly encourage it. I had a great time, and at the end of the day hair makeup, and fashion is all about expressing yourself, and having fun. So why not.
