Justine Marjan and Kitsch Somehow Made Your Favorite '90s Hair Accessory High Fashion
Justine Marjan's crystal-embellished works have taken over the Instagram grids of celebrities, models, and influencers. Her high-shine barrettes with Kitsch have prompted "oohs" and "ahhs" among beauty editors (earning them a Power Your Pretty Award here at POPSUGAR). For her third collection with the brand, however, she decided to add one accessory that skips the heavy sparkle: a two-piece patent leather scrunchie set.
When I first got my hands on the set, I immediately thought of the '90s version of the hair accessory. Then, I thought about how this duo wasn't that. With the scrunchies' patent leather surface, it felt more elevated, and something I'd wear to a business meeting, party, or date. I stretched the elastic as far as it could go to see if it could wrap around my thick, medium-coarse hair. I was surprised by how flexible the material was, because it did — without ever feeling too tight.
The set somehow transformed my third-day hair into the hairstyle below. What were two braids fresh from a sweaty workout turned into a look worthy of a magazine editorial shoot, curated Instagram grid, and now, a day at work.
