Who thought that the ’90s were going to make their comeback by way of the claw clip? I’ll be the first to say that never in a million years would I have thought 30 years later I’d be wearing one right alongside my 12-year-old daughter. I’ll go with the claw clip, but you’re not going to see me pegging my jeans and wearing neon colors. Believe it or not, there are actually even claw clip hairstyles for short hair!

Claw clip hairstyles for short hair don’t have to be hard to do on your own.

Do you want in on a little secret? I actually graduated from cosmetology school and worked in a salon for a few years. Lucky for you, none of these hairstyles require any of the knowledge I learned in beauty school.

STYLE 1- HALF UP

A go-to style for shorter-length hair is a classic half up and half down option. If you’re not sure that your hair is long enough to stay secure this look can truly work for any length of hair.

STYLE 2- THE TWIST

When you think of the claw clip, this classic twist is always what comes to mind. If your hair is longer it gives you the full appearance of wearing a pony tail when you’re really not. You can also twist it up and fold your ends back in the clip so nothing is sticking out from the top.

STYLE 3- LOW MESSY BUN

Every mom loves having a wicked messy bun they can rely on to get them through their days when they are short on time for working with the hair. Thank goodness some claw clip hairstyles for short hair can also work when mom is in a pinch getting out the door! I love a quick and easy morning routine and a cute claw clip can definitely elevate the look!
