Hair accessories were huge during our childhoods. We were all about the clips and barrettes, the plastic headbands, the beaded hair ties, the wraps and the scrunchies. Another big one? The claw clip. Some of these trendy accessories didn’t quite translate into adult life (Were they always this painful?), but others have only proven more useful and more fashionable as time has passed.
At this point, claw clips have solidified themselves as mainstays in the hair accessory realm. They’re great for holding up and keeping together a variety of styles. Even A-listers like Lady Gaga rely on them for daily life. The Chromatica singer was actually recently spotted wearing one, and we were so happy to find that it was under $10! A huge score right before Prime Day!
According to the brand, Gaga wore the golden metal version of this Kitsch clip, letting it hold her blonde hair up and in place as she stepped out in Alo leggings, Saint Laurent boots and a knotted white tank. The “elevated claw clip” was the perfect addition to the sporty-chic outfit. Its salon-quality design is not only durable, but it’s super chic. It’s more minimal and open, so it doesn’t totally cover up your hair, but instead outlines it.
This kind of clip is great for either a full pony/bun like Gaga or for doing a half up, half down style. You can get more creative with it too. Try playing with a braid or upgraded space buns! And don’t worry about the pain factor. This clip is made to comfortably grip your hair without pulling at it!
Gaga rocked the golden version of this clip, but there’s also a silver version available if that’s more your vibe, or if you just want to pick up both so you always have an option to match your jewelry or outfit. For only $8, we don’t think anyone would ever question the worth of owning two!
This clip definitely demonstrates the right way to do hair accessories in the current decade. It will go so well with all of the other trendy clips that have blown up recently too. Go clip-crazy with pearl and rhinestone barrettes, or even some oversized metallic bobby pins. Knotted headbands are huge right now too, so your options go on and on!
