Just because you have short hair doesn’t mean you can’t use claw clips! You can style your hair in a messy half top knot and look effortlessly chic. Divide the front section of your hair into three parts. Take back the middle section and twist it into a topknot and secure it with a claw clip and you’re ready! Take out a few strands from the front to frame your face nicely.

If you wish for a quick yet stylish hairstyle with a claw clip, then the half-up-half-down bun should be your go-to hairstyle. It’s pretty easy to create, too. Start off by detangling your hair and pulling back the front half of your hair. Now, twist the half pony to make a bun. Last, pin the bun in place with a claw clip and let the rest of your hair flow freely.

Want an elegant yet gorgeous hairstyle with claw clips? This hairstyle is all you need. This is perfect for medium-length hair and is easy as well.

We are totally digging this one! Space buns with claw clips are an easy yet super fun way to use our favourite hair accessory to create something fun. For this hairstyle, part your hair in the middle and divide it into two sections. Pull back each section to make two ponytails at the top of your head on each side. Now, twist your hair around the base of the ponytail and secure it with small claw clips to secure them nicely, and you’re ready to roll.

The classic and evergreen 90s claw clip updo is every girl’s go-to hairstyle. It’s just as simple as it looks. First off, detangle your hair and decide whether you wish to make a parting in the front or not, as this style looks great either way. Then pull back all your hair in the middle on your back and twist it slightly before pulling it up and securing it with a claw clip. Use a nice and elegant claw clip and pull out a few face-framing strands from the front to define your face.
