MEET THE FOUNDER:
We will always first and foremost be a family business. With my mom helping me choose & cut fabric and my dad handling the deliveries, there’s an incredible amount of love that goes into creating each and every scrunchie.
XXL & CO™ is a clothing brand and home of the XXL Scrunchie. But it’s more than just a brand— XXL & CO™ has grown into a community of friends. It all started with a Christmas gift!
As a mural artist, I often made scrunchies for myself to match my outfits and keep my hair up as I painted. I’d sew them by hand with a needle and thread, and it would take me almost an entire day to make just one scrunchie. One year, in the spirit of Christmas, I decided to make a scrunchie for my cousin Anh Lan, with one key difference to suit her super long locks—I made it big. Suddenly, XXL Scrunchie was born.
Fast forward one year—I went from making scrunchies by myself, for myself—working from my parents basement—to now working in our own 2700 sq ft warehouse, with a team of 15 incredible humans to bring the joy of oversized hair accessories to thousands of people all over the world. However, no matter how big we get, we’ll always first and foremost be a family business. With my mom helping me cut and choose fabric and my dad handling quality control and the deliveries, there’s an incredible amount of love that goes into creating each and every scrunchie.
Drawing florals and large scale murals has always been the centre of my happiness. I’ve always loved creating something beautiful from nothing, and using my art to evoke feelings in people. Now that we’ve begun creating apparel, I get to do what I love and incorporate hand-drawn artwork into XXL & CO™. Life is too short not to follow your dreams just because you’re scared that you’re not good enough. I truly believe that if you’re consistent in your passion and putting in the work, there’s nothing that you can’t achieve. You’ll often hear myself and my team say #gobigorgohome, and this applies to far more than just our oversized scrunchies—this applies to life. So don’t be afraid to live it! We’re all born to be XXL.

LOVE FOR ART
Born out of a love for scrunchies. We have deeply incorporated my first love for art into XXL. Every aspect of our packaging down to the paper tags serve as a canvas for artistic expression.
As an effort to reduce the use of plastic and minimize waste—we use 100% recyclable materials whenever we can. Kindly note we are still in the process of transitioning in case you get a mix with your new orders.
