Hair claws come in many shapes, sizes, and designs to suit all hair types, lengths, and textures. From tiny hair claws used to secure bangs to large hair clips used to secure long hair, this is our complete guide on claw clips on long and short hair.
Hair Claw Hairstyles
This versatile hair accessory can be used in many different ways to create multiple hairstyles for any hairstyle. The classic French ruffle or twist is a popular style that can be made smooth for an elegant look or loose for a casual look. You can use smaller claws for half-body styles or use some long-toothed claws to secure tiny round buns or tie head knots. Mini claws are great for trimming more petite side hair or bangs.

French Pleats / Twists
An elegant hairstyle that can be neatly done for a sleeker look or more relaxed for a more casual style.
1. Gather hair at the back of the neck and twist.
2. Pull the twist upward so that it rests flat on the back of your head.
3. Roll the twist under the formed pocket of hair and tuck in the ends for a neat look.
4. Secure the claw in the middle, just above the thickest part of the twist.
5. For a more casual loose look, leave some hair loose around the face and leave the ends uncurled.

We recommend using a hair claw with more space inside for thick hair, such as our large French handmade hair claws. These are perfect for holding large amounts of hair securely in place. Our famous octopus hair claws are also ideal for thick, long hair.
For long, exemplary, or medium-weight hair, try our medium hair clips from our handmade collection, or use a medium filigree hair clip with an intricate cut-out design for an elegant twist.
For fine hair, the Long Narrow Fine Hair Claw Clip is a good choice because it has a smaller barrel that holds the hair securely while still being able to grab a large amount of hair due to its length. In great hair, you can also try the Small Narrow Claw Clip version.
This simple style is perfect for getting your hair out of your face! You can choose a simple neutral hair claw or add shine to our crystal collection.
Simply tie the top layer of your hair in a half ponytail at the back of your head. You can smooth it out as much as you like or twist your hair into a loop. Then secure with the claws of your choice.
For half hairstyles, mini and small hair claws are perfect for most hairstyles. If you have thick hair, try using hair that has room inside, such as the tiny hair claws in our handmade series.
To hold less hair or finer hair types, try using mini hair claws to hold your semi-curly hairstyle. These hold fine hair securely in place and are available in various unique colors to match different hair colors.
Buns using hair claws
To create a bun hairstyle, simply twist your hair into a bun shape and secure it with one claw, or secure it on the outside of the bun. You can place your bun high on your head as a head bun or opt for an elegant low bun. Make sure to catch the hair with the bottom teeth of the paw and the hair on the bun with the top teeth.

It is best to choose a hair claw with long teeth in most hair types, as this will help you catch more hair and keep your hairstyle secure for longer. Our biodegradable hair claws, mini, small, and large, are perfect for this because they have teeth that wrap right around your bun. The thicker or more textured your hair is, the larger the claws you need. You can use a couple of larger claws and some minis to hold loose hair.
