A massive trend from Tik Tok, claw clips (also known as bulldog clips) are Gen Z’s favorite hair accessory, especially if they have a tortoiseshell or marble pattern.

A stylish alternative to boring old hair ties, mini claws are perfect for creating cute half-up hairstyles, while full-size clips are the coolest way to part your locks on hot summer days.
