As a busy parent, doing your kid’s hair in the morning is often a frustrating time for both of you. Between making breakfast for everyone, getting them dressed, and out the door, you don’t have a lot of time to spend making your child’s hair presentable for the day. The solution? A cute and comfy kids scrunchie that will have their hair looking polished and stylish in just seconds.
Aside from saving you both time in the morning (hello, beauty sleep), scrunchies are back and better than ever, so it’s the perfect style statement to complete their look of the day. They’re a great alternative to tight elastic hairbands, which can tug at their hair and often cause headaches if tied too tightly. There are so many fun colors and styles to choose from — even sequin versions! — that they’ll love putting on. Below, we’ve rounded up the best kids scrunchies to have them looking great for school with less time spent in front of the mirror.
