Cute claw clip hairstyles that won't feel like Satan's nails are digging into your scalp

Done right, you can channel Rachel from 'Friends', an elegant Parisian woman or just those vibey TikTok girls.

Once a mainstay of 90s hair accessories so popular it almost gave the scrunchie a run for its money, the claw clip is well and truly back. 

Sure, in 2022 we're seeing less tiny, sparkly butterfly clips and more large, neutral, matte versions, but the concept remains the same: Cooler than a ponytail, more effortless than a messy bun. 

Despite how good a tousled claw clip style can look, there is a fundamental flaw. Those sharp little teeth designed to gather up your locks can also dig into your head so hard they feel like they're scratching your brain. 

Plus, if you're working with a jumbo clip or thick hair, the weight of the whole thing can pull on your hair in a way that will cause that special type of irritability usually reserved for when your bra underwire is poking you in the ribs. 

So why bother? Glad you asked. Firstly, you can coordinate your clip to the colour of your outfit, and you can't tell me that's not cute AF.

Secondly, the right clip will be a lot less damaging to your hair than hair ties, which can drag, get stuck and cause breakage. 

Thirdly, done correctly, you can channel Rachel from 'Friends', an elegant Parisian woman or just those TikTok girls who bring the vibes. 

Because my For You Page is already completely dominated with claw clip tutorials, I have done the hard yards for you and tirelessly gone through them all (you're welcome) (sorry to my boss for the amount of time I wasted doing this).

Beauty doesn't have to be pain! Whether you have short, long, thin, thick, curly or straight hair - at least one of these is gonna do the trick. 

If you have super thick hair 

To boost a ponytail 

So it doesn't bump into your car headrest

If you have curly hair

The twist and flip

If you only have a small clip 

To make little space buns!
