If you have thin hair like mine, when you put it in a claw clip it might look even thinner and as if it’s been pulled too tight and flat to your head.


Here’s how I use a claw clip so that my hair looks full and thick.

Tools and materials:

  • Texture spray
  • 2 hair ties
  • Claw clip
  • Bobby pin
Hair texture

1. Texture

Spray texturizing spray on to your roots.

Separating top section

2. Top section

Separate the top section of your hair and secure it with a hair tie. 

Separating top section

Loop it round your hair once, twist it and loop it again, but this time don’t pull your hair all the way through.

Fanning hair

3. Fan it out

Start to fan out the loop carefully.

Fanning hair

Loosen your hair in front of the tie too, to give more volume around your face.

Tying hair

4. Lower section

Gather the rest of your hair into a ponytail and tie it as close to the top one as you can.


Again, don’t pull all the hair through the tie.

Fanning hair

Fan the loop out in the same way as before.

Progress shot

The two loops should look like this at this stage.

Adding clip

5. Claw clip

Lift the loops up from the bottom and place the claw clip at the base of the lower loop.

Volume hack

If your top loop is still too floppy, push a bobby pin into it.

Volume hack

Pull out a few strands of hair around your face.
