PONIES (ELASTIC BANDS) AND SCRUNCHIES
MADE IN FRANCE
Having been out of fashion since the late 90s, scrunchies (chouchous in French) and elastic bands (“ponies”) have been making a come-back in the last few years. They are now seen on every head as the new staple fashion accessory, combining functionality (they help tying your hair up or back) with on-trend style. Every true fashionista must regularly update her scrunchy collection!
In its endless quest towards elegance and as a true fashion-forward house, Maison Valérie Valentine, anticipating their come-back, worked to restore the prestige of ponies and scrunchies. Using various materials and embellishments, these hair essentials are designed and crafted to be authentic fashion accessories for every woman and every hairstyle.
Crafted from velvet, silk satin, suede goatskin or plunged lambskin, made of tweed, with or without Swarovski® crystals, every pony elastic band by Valérie Valentine uses premium materials. Our scrunchies are made from fabric or leather, while the classic ponytail accessories (“ponies”) are set on a chenille elastic band elevated with immaculate leather detail.
To add a touch of luxury to our models, some headpieces also feature Swarovski® crystals and/or pearls. What better way to add an additional glow to your evening or festive looks?
Each of our customized and customizable scrunchies is engineered to prevent hair breakage while being robust. They are all hand-finished in Paris with impeccable care. Thanks to the remarkable intricate work of Valérie Valentine’s artisans, our scrunchies and ponies are transformed into authentic luxurious pieces of jewelry, ready to dress up your hair in the most exquisite manner.
For each type of hair and each hairstyle, the perfect accessory awaits. If you have thick and voluminous hair, go for a scrunchy: its pleats will flatter your hairstyle and balance the volume in your hair. If your hair is thinner, opt for an elastic band (or pony), of course made in France. If you wish, you can even wear a scrunchy on your wrist like a bracelet, an increasingly popular trend.
Learn how to play with different styles. For a contemporary effect go for an unstudied look with a low ponytail, braids, or a loose and low bun.
Finally, say hello to a newcomer to the world of scrunchies and elastic bands: the foulchie. The name of this new accessory is derived from the combined words “foulard” (scarf in French) and scrunchy. Maison Valérie Valentine will continue to introduce new editions of these.
A beautiful and emotional moment, a wedding day represents a new milestone that will remain etched forever in the minds of the bride and the groom. For this reason, the choice of a wedding outfit is a vital step where every detail needs to be carefully thought through. As stunning as your bridal hairstyle may already be, adding a luxury accessory such as a piece of jewelry, an elastic band or a scrunchy, will make you sparkle even more.
Maison Valérie Valentine creates stylish and elegant hair accessories made especially for the bride, that will add the perfect finishing touch to any wedding outfit. Whatever the style of your dress and your hair length, you will find a variety of luxury accessories to complement your hair: a chic elastic band in a minimal design or a Swarovski® crystal-adorned scrunchie for a more statement look.
