Hair Claws FAQs
How Do You Claw Clip Hair?
Using a claw clip to style your hair is simple and can be done in a few quick steps:
1. Gather Your Hair: Start by brushing your hair to remove any tangles. Then, gather it at the nape of your neck, like you would for a low ponytail. For a high bun, gather it at the crown of your head.
2. Twist Your Hair: Twist your hair loosely if you're going for a low ponytail look. For a bun, twist your hair tightly.
3. Fold and Secure: For a ponytail, fold the twisted hair against your head and secure it with the claw clip. For a bun, coil the twisted hair into a bun shape and then clamp it down with the clip.
4. Adjust and Tuck: Tuck in any loose strands and adjust the clip as needed to ensure your hair is comfortably secure.
Style Variations: Experiment with different styles – half-up, half-down looks, or even using multiple small clips for a unique style.
How Do You Put Long Hair in a Claw Clip?
Styling long hair with a claw clip might seem challenging, but it's quite manageable with these steps:
1. Prepare Your Hair: Brush your long hair to smooth out any knots or tangles, ensuring it's easy to gather and style.
2. Create a Loose Ponytail: Lean forward, allowing your hair to fall in front of your face. Gather it in your hands as if you're making a high ponytail. This position is helpful for long hair as it gives you more control and leverage.
3. Twist and Loop: Stand upright again, holding the ponytail. Twist your hair until it starts to naturally fold into a loop or bun shape. For long hair, you might need to wrap the twist around itself a couple of times.
4. Secure with the Claw Clip: Open the claw clip wide, and scoop up the base of the twisted hair, ensuring you capture as much hair as possible within the clip. If your hair is very long, you may have a tail end that can be wrapped around the base and tucked into the clip for a neat finish.
5. Adjust for Comfort: Make sure the clip isn’t pulling too tight, as this can be uncomfortable. Adjust as needed for a secure yet comfortable fit.
6. Check for Loose Strands: If there are any loose strands or layers, you can either tuck them into the clip or leave them out for a more relaxed, casual look.
With long hair, the key is ensuring the twist is secure before clipping, as this will help manage the weight of the hair and keep the style in place.
How Do You Use a Claw Clip With Short Hair?
Styling short hair with a claw clip might seem challenging, but with the right approach, it can add a great touch to your look. Here’s how you can do it:
1. Choose the Right Size Clip: For short hair, opt for a smaller claw clip. Larger clips can be overwhelming for shorter lengths.
2. Section Your Hair: Depending on the length and volume of your hair, you might not be able to gather all of it in one clip. Instead, focus on sectioning. You can clip back the top half of your hair or just the hair above your ears.
3. Backcombing for Volume: If your hair is quite fine, gently backcomb the section you plan to clip. This adds volume and texture, making it easier to secure the clip.
4. Twist or Fold the Hair: Gently twist or fold the section of hair you want to clip. With short hair, this might be a smaller twist or fold compared to longer hair.
5. Secure with the Clip: Open the claw clip and secure your twist or fold. Place the clip close to the scalp for a firm hold. For a half-up style, clip the hair at the back of your head; for a side-swept look, clip it to one side.
6. Adjust and Style: Once the clip is in place, adjust any stray strands or use additional hairpins if needed. You can leave some strands loose around your face for a softer look.
7. Experiment with Styles: With short hair, you can get creative. Try clipping just the bangs back, or use multiple small clips for a fun, edgy look.

First, gather your hair as if you're creating a ponytail. Twist your hair into a loose bun or fold it for a more structured look, ensuring not to compress your hair too tightly. Then, open the claw clip and secure it over your hair, grabbing as much of the bun or fold as possible. If needed, you can use additional smaller clips to tuck in any loose strands.
