What's a jaw or claw clip?

France Luxe Couture Jaw Hair Clip

A jaw or claw clip features prongs on two sides that come together like fingers clasping. They are held together by a simple spring making them one of the easiest and most versatile hair clips on the market. Also known as butterfly clips, these clips are perfect for everyday looks and are quick to style, even for a hairstyle newbie! Popular styles include twists, buns, updo, or half-up, the possibilities are endless.

Claw clips come in a wide range of styles and sizes, from mini to jumbo. Ours range from about ½” to 5” long. Tiny butterfly clips are often used in multiples to accent a bun or updo or just one to pin a small bit of fine hair to the side. Medium jaw clips are perfect for half-up, half-down hair dos. For those with fine hair, a medium size clip can hold all of your hair, making it functional with so many different styles. Larger claws are generally used for people with thick, textured hair, great for a hair twist or bun.
