Hair trends: claw clips are back!

Back to the Nineties. The return of claw clips for hair is among the latest 2022 trend. It takes us back thirty years, but with all the enthusiasm of Tik Tokers who are just discovering them now.

Nothing new under the sun? Well… more or less. After scrunchies, headbands and hair stamps, it is now the time for claw clips, which are making a big comeback among the new 2022 hair trends. So get yourself some of what was the favorite accessory during the late 1980s and for all the 1990s.

Maybe because the enthusiasm of Tik Tokers has been overwhelmingly contagious. And now those big claw clips have once again become the ultimate chic accessory.After a subtle debut over the last months of last year, the claw clip trend has been trending among some of A-list celebs who have even worn it out in public! From Chiara Ferragni to the Parisian It-girl Jeanne Damas, and even stars like model Bella Hadid or the Belgian singer Angele, who even combined a claw clip with an outfit by Chanel.

A casual hair trend that in any case has precise rules to be respected. First of all, it has to be BIG. So big that together with the classic clip there is also a return to the banana clip. These can grasp the hair firmly thanks to a series of long teeth along the entire clip.

Then in addition to the dimensions, it must have outstanding style. For example, rhinestones, colorful crystals, or saying conveyed in contrasting colors are the most innovative and original. So the whole idea is to be eye-catching. The most elegant look would be a tortoise shell hue, or even a solid color that matches your outfit.

Then, when it comes to the do, the first step would be to make the best use of the clip. One suggestion is to apply some dry shampoo first so the texture is more stable. Secondly, it’s important to maintain volume if options include a chignon or semi-updo. With a claw clip or banana clip you can also opt for the ponytails or a cascading semi-updo. Even better if you have curly hair!
