With the 90s and Y2K trends not going anywhere, claw clip hairstyles have made their way into TikTok like a storm. Not only are they easy to use, but they also offer a clean look, zero effort, as well as multiple fun ways to wear different hairstyles.

Here are some of the best and easiest claw clip hairstyles you can try out today!

The Rise of Claw Clip Hairstyles

The claw clip, a beloved ’90s trend, has made a stylish comeback in recent years as well. It is a look favored by celebrities like Kendall Jenner, Hailey Bieber, and Bella Hadid for its versatility. Available in various styles, colors, and sizes, claw clips offer numerous ways to wear your hair up.

To use a claw clip effectively, start by brushing your hair to remove tangles and gather your hair like creating a medium-to-low ponytail. Then you can twist it, pull it into a vertical bun, and secure it with the clip.

The claw clip works well with various hair lengths and textures, allowing for a range of stylish possibilities, including half-up, and half-down looks.

Some Claw Clip Hairstyles You Should Go For

Here are some easy claw clip hairstyles you can follow:

Twist & Clip

The simplest claw clip hairstyle is the “twist and clip.” As the name implies, all it needs is merely twisting a portion of your hair and fastening it with the clip. To achieve a laid-back appearance, leave the ends of your hair slightly feathered.

Low Claw-Clip-Ponytail

To create a stylish low ponytail with added flair, consider incorporating a claw clip. To achieve this look, collect your hair into a ponytail (adjust its placement as desired) and use a claw clip to secure it in position. This style pairs exceptionally well with a marble or patterned clip for an extra touch of chicness.

Half-Up Updo

Another trendy option is to use a claw clip to hold your half-up, half-down hairstyle in place. Just take two sections, one from each side of your head, and gather them together. Next, secure them at the back using a clip. To add a distinctive twist to the look, give each section a little twist before securing them.

Slicked-Back Option

If you have thicker or more textured hair, try a half-slicked-back, half-natural appearance. This style involves slicking back one portion of the hair with a serum or hair cream to achieve a smooth appearance. The key is to keep the remaining hair twisted and secured with a clip as usual.

Messy Bun

Sometimes you just can not be bothered to do an entire hairstyle, and we get it! Opt for a casual messy bun. For this hairstyle, twist your hair into a bun and use a claw clip to hold it in place, leaving a few strands loose for a laid-back and relaxed appearance.
