Claw clip

Tools, Tips, Technique


Although the vast majority of claw clips are in plastic many are also found in wood and resin and come in all sizes and colors. They are generally used to clip up and separate hair for cutting and styling.


I recommend the articulated model as being very useful and versatile.


Claw clips can be the perfect tool on a photo shoot when time is of the essence. They are very effective for quick, reliable adjustments, finessing a style in seconds and controlling stray hairs, or for keeping a hairstyle with a complicated architecture firmly in place.
