So, using a claw clip doesn’t mean you just twist and clip. You can twist upwards and then downwards to hide longer lengths in the clip. It stops the long hair from looking like it just hangs and adds a unique sense of style. Teasing hair out once it’s clipped in place can add a more lived-in undone look, or keeping it tightly twisted gives a high-end polished feel.

One thing I like about claw clips – especially on my thin hair is that you can clip, leave the ends hanging out of the clip, and they spray out to give a fuller effect to your hair when you clip it up. The claw clip adds a fuller effect to wearing your hair up, rather than having a skinny ponytail. There are different types of claw clips, the little ones or the skinny clips I find have a better hold on thin hair types.

Add extra body to your curly look by twisting the hair up and wearing it in a claw clip. The large claw hair clips add structure to hold up the hair and give curls space to puff out at the top. It provides volume and effortless style, plus keeps curls off your neck on hot summer days.

There are lots of variations of claw clip styles being worn half up, and they can look charming with a smaller claw clip. Also, it adds shape to the back of the head, so if you struggle to add volume to the back, this is a fun option. It’s also great for adding style without hiding length and works well on many hair types. I’ve seen people twist buns and clip the ends, loop hair around one side of the clip, or twist it neatly out of the way at the back.

Maybe your style is a little playful, and you like the space bun look? This cool crazy hairstyle can be created with claw clips, too, to add fun to the look. You can leave the ends poking out of the clip or twist upwards and fold the hair back into the clip for an elongated claw clip-style look.

Creating a wet look effect with gel and twisting the hair entirely away into the claw clip adds a chic effect. It also helps contain unruly curls and condenses the look. Gives you a simplistic but edgy look. I personally like tight neat looks low on the neck, and I would recommend trying this claw clip look on lazy days.

Maybe you like a little more elegance and don’t want a real perky claw clip look? Well, twisting the hair low can add a nice classy effect to a caw clip look; it almost has a chignon effect and goes well with a high neck top or an evening dress. Making this look great for a day-to-night look, I’d recommend it for someone who likes to step out of the office and into a bar.

Worn with 6-8 clips and sometimes multi colors, it’s right on the y2k trend. This look can be edgy but also loose and bridal looking, so it’s a versatile all-around look too.

So, I feel this look works better with smaller claw clips and double ponytails, leaving the long length out; it has a cute feel to it. It adds volume to the sides and back of your hair while wearing it long. This half up half down claw clip style is a friendly alternative to wash days and keeps your hair out of your face.

This look works nicely on a long hair type. Twist the hair loose and low, leaving the length of the hair out at the bottom. Then simply pop a claw clip over the top, with the ends hanging out to keep the ponytail together in the neck. This gives a trailing effect, and the claw clip adds extra lift to the pony to give volume. You can also achieve a quaffed hair look with this style.

Also, flat claw clips can be used to just clip hair off the face, so they can add a simplistic effect to the hair. Whatever the choice, the claw clip aesthetic hairstyles trend is here to stay—at least for a bit. So, get creative with your claw clip looks.
