Ah, the humble claw clip. The beauty staple of the ’90s appears to be making a comeback, and we’re not exactly mad at it.
They can range from fugly to frumpy, but in the hands (and hair) of the right person, the claw clip can make a statement. Heck, even Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton rocked some teeny, understated claws. A royal co-sign means it’s not tacky! (Unless you want it to be, in which case, go get your kitsch on.)
Claw clips are a great way to get your hair out of your face while cooking, painting, washing your face, or any other activity that might require a quick updo. Styles range from basic black to classic tortoiseshell, bejeweled metal to brightly colored plastic, raver to mermaid, and everything in between. Plus, there’s that classic move of seductively removing a clip from your hair and letting your tresses tumble down. Just like in the movies! We’re not gonna call the claws iconic, per se, but they do come in handy.
