Claw Clip Hairstyles

We’re sure you’re seeing all your favourite influencers and celebs with this go-to hair accessory: Claw Clips.

From sleek, straightforward designs to fun, floral options, claw clips are a great way to accessorise your hair whilst also being a practical tool.

Claw clip hairstyles are a big trend right now, with TikTok videos and Instagram feeds full of different options to try.

Plus, hairstyles with claw clips are varied, so whether you’re a bob queen or love some long, luscious locks, there’s something for everyone!

Claw clips are known as a popular 90s accessory, but were actually created in 1989 by French inventor Christian Potut, combining the functions of combs and hair clips.

Let’s take a deeper look at these genius accessories…


Are Claw Clips Bad For Your Hair?


Before we delve into all the fun things you can do with claw clips, let’s dispel the myth that they’re bad for your hair.


This gripping invention (see what we did there?), is considered to be a lot healthier for hair than other hair accessories like bobbles, and here are a few reasons why:


  • Less friction: Claw clips create less friction than other hair accessories which reduces tugging and snapping, preventing hair breakage and damage.
      • The material that claw clips are made of helps this too, with soft edges to protect the hair.


  • Gentle: They put less pressure on the hair, again helping to prevent breakage and not giving you that tight, headachy feeling that a long day in a bobble can give.

  • Versatile: Used for tonnes of different hairstyles, claw clips are versatile, so whether it’s a put-together updo or a quick gym hairstyle, they’re always there for support!

  • Sturdy: Bigger claw clips with longer teeth and wider spacing are brilliant for securing long, thick, curly hair.

    Some pointers to also keep in mind are to not wrap hair too tightly in a claw clip and switch up the way you wear it from time to time.


    * We also advise avoiding wearing a claw clip whilst driving as this could be dangerous in accidents.


    Now, let’s get into the fun part…introducing the Give Me Cosmetics claw clips:
