Throughout 90s Scrunchie was a hit but in the 00s Carrie Bradshaw mocked the fashion behind Scrunchie in Sex and the City which made Scrunchies less popular. This comment represented the decline in popularity of the scrunchie during this period. The scrunchie became a faux pas in the sense that wearing it around was embarrassing. Many people believed that scrunchies should stay in the past.

Even after the fallout, Scrunchies made a comeback with the runways and celebrities. Famous women such as Hailey Bieber, Bella and Gigi Hadid, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and Selena Gomez wore scrunchies which helped scrunchies to gain popularity.
