To answer this question in one word, yes, a guy can wear a scrunchy. However, in our society, scrunchies are classified as feminine products, along with other hair products like hair clips, headbands, headscarves, and barrettes. The advertising and sales of hair accessories are aimed primarily at girls and women. They often come in girly colors, are decorated with butterflies and flowers, and are worn by beautiful female models. The feminization of hair accessories has led to their association with women and not men.
When you hear the word dress, your mind automatically connects it to the feminine. When you hear the word suit, your mind automatically connects to it the masculine. Because through association, our brains have been wired to connect objects and things with genders.
But why must only one gender be allowed to use these useful tools? While men are left with plain and boring hair produces. And why can’t men wear scrunchies? The answer is they can, and nothing is stopping them.
Scrunchies are just fancy hair ties, and hair ties are already an essential daily item for many men. They are, in fact, a necessity. How else would you keep your hair out of your face when you’re working out, playing sports, mowing the lawns, playing an instrument, cooking or building your one of a kind Lego, Death Star.
How do men wear scrunchies?
Hair ties are a necessity for men, just like belts and shoes and socks.
And the likes of long hair and man buns are not out of fashion. Men, who are at the top of their game in the performance industry right now, like Dev Patel, Timothee Chalamet and Harry Styles, are letting their curls grow and flow, bringing sexy back with the classic Tarzan look.
Some men are already rocking the scrunchy look. Men like Jason Momoa, who has the most masculine head of hair on the planet, loves to pull it back in a scrunchy when he rocks the red carpet.
So, yes, guys can wear scrunchies.
Nothing is stopping Jason Momoa, so what’s stopping you?
What does it mean if a guy wears a scrunchy?
If a guy wears a scrunchy, what does it mean? Does it mean that he broke his hair tie and is borrowing his sister’s accessories? Does it mean he bats for the same team? Or does it just mean that he has long hair and a really good sense of style? In the world of fashion, the line between masculine and feminine products is becoming more and more blurred.
Are scrunchies feminine?
Women are rocking suits, and men are killing it in a blouse and skirt. Take Billie Eilish, for example. She is a very successful singer who wears baggy men’s clothes, doesn’t shows that much skin and is loved by millions.
Another example is Jaden Smith, son of Will Smith. He defied gender norms when he modelled a skirt for a Louis Vuitton campaign. Fashion is becoming more gender-fluid because our society is becoming more accepting and open to the personal preferences and self-expression of the individual.
As a result, the negative connotations behind a man wearing feminine items or a female wearing masculine items are becoming null and void. So, a woman wearing a hoodie doesn’t have to mean anything other than the fact that she is cold. And a man wearing a scrunchy doesn’t have to mean anything other than the fact that he needed to tie up his hair that day.
What are the best scrunchies for Men?
There are many different types of hair accessories a man can use to pull back his hair.
With a headband, chair lips, gel, hair ties or a scrunchy. Each achieves a different look and style of hairdo. Headbands allow the hair to be pulled back from the face whilst still being out. Clips can hold back specific sections of hair that you want out of the way.
And gel can give you a slick, sticky look, just like in the movie Grease. Hair ties and scrunchies pull the hair completely out of the face and out of the way; this leaves your neck free to breathe. There are several different types of hair ties for men. Starting with the classic hair tie to the plastic spiral hair tie to the scrunchy.
But unlike the thick and tough hair tie or the plastic spiral hair tie, the scrunchy is soft and gentle on the hair. Scrunchies are better than a regular hair tie because they are much easier to use, harder to lose and add a splash of color to your updo.
Hair ties can be thin and long and need to be wound around your hair a hundred times before they achieve anything. Also, your hair can easily get wrapped around the hair tie, and it is impossible to pull it off without cutting the hair tie. Because hair ties are small and thin, they can get lost very easily and won’t come back.
Why are scrunchies popular again?
Under your car seat, in between your couch cushions or right up your vacuum cleaner. Scrunchies are much larger, and so are a lot easier to keep track of. Hair ties are also plain and one color, primarily black, brown or blonde. Colored hair ties don’t look as good as a colored scrunchy. There are many different types of scrunchies, the classic cotton, ruffles and patchwork scrunchies and even tulle scrunchies. But the silk scrunchy is always the best. Not only is it kind to you luscious locks, but it has a lot of other benefits.
