hair claws

Let the revival of the claw be a reminder to you that no matter how tired you find an accessory, the cyclical nature of fashion will one day make you wish you’d never thrown it out. Who would have thought that the tortoiseshell claw you wore two decades ago would be on your wishlist today?

If your hair is in desperate need of a trim, a colour or a low-maintenance hairstyle, it’s time to fish out your old hair claw.

They’re the most pain-free way to twist your hair into something veering on chic, which your hair probably hasn’t felt in a long time. If you’re using this time to take care of your hair, hair claws have a double purpose of being less damaging to your hair than elastics.
