Whether you’re a busy mom, busy student, or even if you’re just trying to roll out of bed to make it to that zoom meeting in time, you’ve probably used a jumbo claw clip when you’re out of time to do your hair. As they say, trends come back around and in this case the 90s staple have come back.
While the jumbo claw clips of today come in lots of unique prints and stylish designs, the long ands thick-haired among us can still have trouble finding one large enough to hold all of that hair without having to readjust again and again throughout the day. Over the past several months I’ve bought more than my share to try to find some of the best for a quick updo that you can set and forget.
In this article I’ll list the 9 best jumbo claw clips.
The Benefits of Using a Jumbo Claw Clip vs. Hair Ties
Before I list the best jumbo claw clips, there are some benefits of claw clips you should know over hair ties. Using claw clips results in less breakage than using hair ties because they don’t pull at your hair. The broadly spaced teeth of the hair claw keep the hair in place rather than requiring hair to be pulled back. This makes claw clips great for thinning hair and for those suffering from hair loss.
Claw clips also don’t create those dents in your hair that you’re used to from an elastic-held ponytail, which means they’re also good for maintaining a hairstyle.
Beyond this, claw clips make a stylish statement of their own, and can add fullness to a ponytail. There are lots of hairstyles you can make with a claw clip from a sleek “clean girl” bun, to a Barbie ponytail, to loosely clasped half-up half-down waves.
So which jumbo claw clips are the best for those with lots and lots of hair?
