All the claw clip inspo you need this summer
If there's one hair trend that's taken over in 2021, it's the claw clip style. A revival of the '90s beauty trend, claw clips are effortless and casual, yet totally chic and sophisticated. The hairstyle is seen everywhere, and claw clips have become a staple in many everyday looks.
Claw clips are super versatile accessories and can be styled in many different ways, from a classic up-do to a half-up ponytail hairstyle. We've included some of our fave ways to wear claw clips to inspire your next look.
The French twist:
The classic French twist look has become one of the most popular ways to style claw clips this year. The perfect way to mix both fashion and function (seriously, this look does an *amazing* job at keeping your hair out of your face), all that's needed for this style is a medium or big sized clip, depending on how long your hair is. Buy claw clips in different colors or patterns to compliment your outfits and keep your up-do exciting!
The half-up look:
This hairstyle is super easy to achieve — simply section off and clip the top half of your hair, and then pull out two front pieces to frame your face. Using a fun clip for your half-up look will add an extra pop to your outfit, and is perfect for when you want your hair down, but still controlled and out of your face.
The ponytail look:
As the name implies, this look is achieved by using a claw clip to create a high or low ponytail. Using a claw clip to create a ponytail is a great substitute for a hair tie — not only is it less likely to cause breakage, it's guaranteed to add some extra dimension to your look!
Figuring out the right way to achieve your desired claw clip look can be confusing. Follow along with some of our fave video tutorials to learn *exactly* how to maneuver your clip.
Incorporating claw clips into your look is a super easy way to experiment with different hairstyles and spice up any outfit. We're *huge* fans of the claw clip trend, and have a feeling these adorable (yet fashionable!) clips will be a staple in many of our fave looks to come.
