Remember back in the ‘90s, when claw hair clips were all the rage? They say fashion trends tend to come back in style every 20 to 30 years, and that has proven to be the case with claw clip hairstyles. Made popular by Rachel Green from Friends and coveted by everyone from supermodels to busy moms, this iconic ‘90s hair accessory has made a major comeback in recent years, so much so that we were inspired to put together a post for you here with some tips on how to style your hair using claw clips. Virtually anyone can pull off these claw clip hairstyles, which is what makes the clips so appealing.
Claw Clip Hairstyles to Try at Home
The great thing about claw hair clips is that they can take a simple hairstyle to the next level with almost zero effort. Whether you’re walking the runway or running errands around town, the claw clip is one functional and fashionable hair accessory you won’t want to miss out on. The following are three flattering hairstyles you can try out on your own using claw clips.
The Classic Twist
The messy bun is one of today’s simplest and most wearable hairstyles. Dressed up or down, hair short or long, you can quickly and easily elevate your look and get your hair out of your face at the same time by throwing it into a bun. For a more fashionable take on the messy bun, try a classic twist with a colorful claw clip. Simply gather your hair at the back of your neck, twist it up and secure it with a large clip. Pull a few pieces in the front loose for a casual, flirty look. A chic alternative to using elastic hairbands that also happens to be less damaging to the hair, the versatile claw clip takes the much-loved messy bun to the next level fashion-wise.
The Upgraded Top Knot
Think the classic top knot is a flawless hairstyle that simply can’t be improved upon? Enter the claw clip. You can easily take your top knot from basic to beautiful by forgoing the extra hair ties and bobby pins in favor of a claw hair clip. To achieve this look, gather your hair on the top of your head in a high ponytail. Take the length of your hair, twist it around your finger, and wrap the twisted strands around the base of your ponytail. Rather than pinning the ends of your hair in place, clip them with a claw clip or two to complete the look.
The Half-Up ‘Do
Whether your hair is long or short, straight or curly, thick or fine, the half-up ‘do is a hairstyle that looks great on everyone. It is also incredibly easy to master, especially if you are using claw hair clips. All you have to do is separate your hair into two sections: a top section and a bottom section. Gather the top section at the crown of the head and use a claw clip to secure it in place. If you want to take it one step further, you can do a mini twist with the top section of hair or wrap it into a half top knot. Leave a few loose strands in the front to take the hairstyle up a notch.
