How to style your hair with a jaw clip?

Claw clip, crocodile clip, what's the difference and how to choose?

Jaw clips are the most common hair accessories for women, even more than hair ties. Most women with hair long enough to be tied up to take a shower have at least one in their bathroom. This functional item is the easiest way to hold hair effortlessly.

You may name it claw clip, crocodile clip or any other name, the main difference lies in the design and the quality. As this accessory has most of the time a practical purpose, one can be really tempted not to invest much money. There are thus plenty of low-range and cheap products, whose short lifetime involves frequent renewals. In the end, there is an economical cost as much as an environmental one.

Even to use it only within the bathroom, it is better to invest in a quality product whose spring can be changed to extend its lifespan.

Which jaw clips for thin hair?

For thin hair, we recommend small-sized jaw clips, up to 6 cm. To find them on our website, your can type the following terms in the search bar: ACCS/ACCB ou ICC45/ICCB/ICCXS.

Which jaw clips for thick hair?

Our ACCL (11 cm) and ICCL (10,5 cm) jaw clips are really suited for thick hair.

However, smaller versions can also be used to style thick hair, either alone or with several.

How to put a hair jaw clip?
