Claw Clip Hairstyles That Are All Grown Up
If you haven’t yet busted out your old tortoiseshell claw clip, now is the time to do it. We were flipping when first caught word that our favorite 1990s hair accessory was making a comeback, and for good reason. Who doesn’t love a one-and-done hairstyle without the need of bobby pins, hair ties, and loads of teasing? The beauty in a claw clip is that it can elevate a ho-hum everyday updo (hello, ponytail) into an elegant style that’s both functional and fashionable. Check, check. To really jump on the party wagon of claw-clip love, we gathered a few of our favorite ways to rock this vintage (well, kind of) hair accessory, plus the products that’ll get you there.
