A tribute to
Rommy Hunt Revson
Rommy Hunt Revson (born Rommy Kolb on February 15, 1944 – September 7, 2022) was an American nightclub performer and the innovator behind the creation of the scrunchie. In 1986, Revson came up with the concept of the scrunchie, a hair accessory designed for securing hair in a ponytail. She developed this accessory when preparing for job interviews and aiming to safeguard her fragile hair after bleaching it. To prevent damaging her hair with conventional elastic bands or plastic clips, she crafted the scrunchie from gentle fabric. She obtained a design patent for her invention.
Revson initiated a business venture to promote her Scruncis, quickly amassing $20 million in orders during the initial months. However, she was unable to meet the soaring demand, leading to the failure of her business. Subsequently, she licensed her patent to others for manufacturing purposes. By the time her patent expired in 2001, over two billion Scrunchies had been sold. Revson garnered more than $1 million annually in royalties from the scrunchie for over 12 years.
