Claw clips are the ultimate hair accessory and at Elia Essentials we are totally here for it. Arguably the most inclusive hair accessory on the market, claw clips can be used by everyone no matter their hair length, thickness and texture. Keep scrolling to find the perfect claw clip style for you!
- THE TWIST AND TUCK
Starting with a style that most people can rock, we have the twist and tuck. Simply gather your hair at the nape of your neck and twist fairly tightly. Depending on your hair length, fold the twisted hair back on itself to create a smaller area to work with. Tuck your folded hair into your head whilst twisting one final time. Secure with the claw clip that’s best for your hair length, thickness and hair texture (take our quiz to find the best Elia Essentials claw clip for you).
- THE FAN
Another style for everyone! Grab your Elia Essentials clip and get to work. Again, start by gathering your hair at the nape of your neck and twist tightly. Move the hand that is holding your hair high above your head. Take your claw clip (we recommend Etta for thin, fine hair and Cora/Novi for thick & textured hair) and secure this at the centre of your head. Release your hair from your other hand watch this fan beautifully over your claw clip. The great thing about this style is that it can look so different dependent on your hair length and texture.

- THE HALF PLAIT HALF DOWN
Start by sectioning your hair into two. With the top section, plait your hair! Depending on your skill level, you might choose to do a French or Dutch braid, but a normal plait will work just fine. Secure the plait with your Elia Essentials small clip no further down than the nape of your neck (although this will be different for different hair lengths). For extra security, use a clear elastic at the end of your plait before using your small clip.
- THE VOLUMISED PONYTAIL
Put your hair into the ponytail of your choice… this could be low, high or somewhere in between! Once secured with your Elia Essentials silk scrunchie, split the ponytail into two sections. Backcomb the top section for more volume then smooth out with a comb. Place your small clip underneath your silk scrunchie for a pushed up, volumised ponytail. Check out the difference below!
- THE QUICK CLIP DO
This style is for when you only have a matter of seconds to get your hair out of your face! Gather all hair at the nape of your neck, twist slightly and secure with your Elia Essentials claw clip. Pull out your face framing pieces and voila! Nice and simple. For extra security, use a clear elastic to hold the low ponytail in place.
