These comments were the best thing I read all morning, thanks

Now, I am trying to decipher the question
Someone coming out with a new line of designer scrunchies and doing a markety survey?
A confused time warp victim ?
A Canadian thing?

Most guys couldn't tell if a piece of women's clothing or accessory was expensive even "if it came up and bit him on the $$$."

Sometimes i'll show my husband one of those magazine displays where they have a very expensive outfit ($1,000 shoes, $800 cotton tee shirt, $4,000 gold bracelet, etc) and a smiliar outfit that you can buy for under $100 and he truly can not tell the difference. I think that is typical of most men.

It's possible that the OP was referring to the hair style and not whether or not the scrunchy was expensive.

What exactly is an expensive scrunchie, like $5?

That's what I want to know. I've never heard anyone refer to them as expensive. I bought some from Claire's the other day for $6. Is that considered expensive?

Thanks to the both of you for asking.........when I saw the thread, I thought it might be like the expensive Victoria Secret bra.

I thought these went out with tube socks...

I thought Carrie Bradshaw ruined scrunchies for good about a decade ago. They've been left shriveling in wasted existence just lying around the house gathering dust or under the couch waiting to be found by the teenager who now has teenagers.

And expensive too! Are they coming back with a vengeance???

Carrie Bradshaw ruined the brought back from the dead scrunchies. They died the first time circa 1992.

They did!? I still wore them in 1992! I had short hair with long bangs then, like Victoria Beckham's. I'd scrunchie my bangs when at school coz my teacher wanted to see every inch of our faces

One day I just showed up with a big scrunchie on my head, just to see her reaction... The fluffier the scrunchie, the better. But boys and girls alike found it cute!

Man, what was I thinking?!
