The go-to style for claw hair clips is the classic twist. To create this look, all you have to do is gather your strands, twist them, then clip them. It’s really that easy to create and looks great on everyone. Achieving the look may take a few tries, especially depending on your hair type

Half-Up Half-Down

Another timeless claw clip hairstyle is the half-up half-down look. Better yet, it takes two seconds to create. And you likely already know how to do it.

Claw Clip Ponytail

Rather than twisting all your hair up and securing it with a claw clip, this look allows your long locks to cascade down, creating the illusion of a ponytail.

Claw Clip Bun

Who says you need a hair tie and bobby pins to hold your bun? Not us, for you can easily toss your hair up with help from a claw clip. Even those with thick strands can make this look work for them.

Twisted Tendrils

Mini claw clips deserver their time in the spotlight too. A super cute way to show off small claw clips is by twisting back part of your hair and clipping them into your strands.

Sleek Low Bun

This chic hairstyle is perfect for times when you want to dress it up a little. And it will put all your embellished claw clips to good use.

Space Buns

Space buns and claw clips go together like peanut butter and jelly… well, almost. Use smaller claw clips to hold your space buns while you venture into the cosmos or just go about your day.

Twisted Updo

Looking for a claw clip hairstyle that’s a little more formal? We’ve got it right here. Pull your natural hair back into a claw clip and add some twists along the scalp for the perfect date night look.

Folded Over

Hide all of your long hair by folding it over and securing it with your claw clip in this hairstyle. It also works for short hair, especially because you have less hair to hide.

Messy Bun Claw Clip

Your claw clip hairstyle doesn’t have to be perfect. Toss your hair up into a messy bun, secure it, and you’re good to go. This is an especially great style for days when you’re running late or can’t be bothered to do your hair.


Who says you have to secure your braids with a hair tie? Add a little something special to the hairstyle by securing them with a medium-sized claw clip.

All the Claw Clips

Go all out with your claw clip hairstyle by donning your tresses with multiple claw clips. This is a great look for those with lots of layers or thicker hair that need a little extra support.
