5 Ways to Style Claw Clips
I never thought I would see the day where claw clips came back in style. Did you? Now, I’m even giving tutorials on the 5 ways to style claw clips! Wow. I remember back in elementary school, I was going on a field trip to meet my “pen pal” and I had it all planned out….I was going to wear my hair in a beautiful French twist with a claw clip. Well, let’s just say my mom had another idea and instead did my hair in 2 high pigtails. WAH WAH! My hair dreams were crushed that day. It’s okay Mom, I forgive you.
Now that I have control of how my hair is done (; I take full advantage of the claw clip trend. I sport them both around the house (let’s be honest, having my hair down with a little toddler is not my first choice) and when I go out. Claw clips are SUPER easy to use and are really on trend, so take advantage while you can!
All of these styles that I am about to share are pretty straight forward. Anyone, and I mean ANYONE can do these. The best part is that the styles look cute both messy or polished. You really can’t mess these up.
5 Ways to Style Claw Clips
Claw Clip Hairstyle #1
The first style is the easiest. Just simply pull you hair half up, add your clip and BOOM. Your hair is out of your face and you look super stylish.
Claw Clip Hairstyle #2
This one is a spin on style 1. Pull your hair half up but then twist the hair in the ponytail. Next you’ll pull the twisted ponytail up and then fold it in half and secure with your clip.
Claw Clip Hairstyle #3
For this one you are going to pull all of your hair back, twist the ponytail and pull it upwards. Next, add your clip and let the extra hair hang over. Done! So easy, right?
Claw Clip Hairstyle #4
This style is the same as style 2 but instead of half up, we are pulling all of it up.
Now I’m going to let you in on a little secret. If your having issues with your hair staying up while wearing either of these last 2 styles….you gotta try this!
Start with a low ponytail, then do your typical topsy tail. For this you will split the section of hair above the ponytail and then flip your ponytail up and over, pulling it all the way through.Then continue on like you normally would with either style. This will help keep the hair tight and secure, preventing your style from loosening and falling out. If you’re interested, click here for more ponytail hairstyles that will elevate your look.
Claw Clip Hairstyle #5
For our final style, we are just going to put our hair in a low bun and instead of securing with a hair elastic, use your claw clip! This one is super chic and super cute.
