Incorporate the Claw Clip Into Your Updo

The 90’s cult favourite making a major come back.

The most iconic modern solution to easy hair styling now available in a wide variety of colours, styles and textures. There are many benefits to the claw clip. It has an ability to elevate an everyday outfit, its material and structure is hair health friendly but most importantly, the claw clip is perfectly practical.

Slick Bun

Go the extra step beyond simply throwing your your hair up into a messy claw clip situation for something a little more sophisticated.

Whether you’re trying to go a day without heat styling your hair, or perhaps you have seriously miscalculated the time of your morning routine – the claw clip is the put-together accessory that is bound to beautifully tie together any beauty, or fashion faux pas caused by the pre-work rush.

If you’re looking for that signature fresh and ultra clean look, we suggest slicking back your hair in a tightly looped bun and securing with a more neutral hair clip in contrast with the shade of your hair.

To really secure the hold of your bun, battle stubborn fly-aways with ELEVEN’s Slick Hold Styling Pomade.

Ensure your do is flat and slick with the perfect comb for your locks, simply slide it through your style and you’re good to go.

A little goes a long way with this heavenly product, so use sparingly!

The low maintenance solution to It-girl hair.

Put aside the smoothing hair products and heat stylers because mess is best when it comes to achieving this iconic look.

The celebrated claw clip is the easy-to-use and almost impossible to mess up hair accessory for any casual day to formal event.

Whether your chosen claw clip is big or small, the accessory has proven its status for being the perfect finishing touch to any weekday to weekend ensemble for decades now.

Although this accessory alone really does most of the hard work for you, if you feel like adding an extra 30 seconds into your haircare routine, we here at Monde suggest adding O&M’s Desert Dry Volumizing Texture Spray to really up the ante.

Shake the can well and spray the product around 30cm away from your hair.

Work in with your fingers, twist the hair and clip towards the crown of your head. Yep, it really is that easy.

Half Up Half Down

We know, the half-up, half-down hairstyle isn’t particularly revolutionary and doesn’t really belong to any specific fashion era.

But the beauty of this trend is that adding a claw clip to almost any updo means you’re immediately serving 90s style inspiration.

The updo that says yes, I need my hair away from my face but no, I don’t want it completely off the back of my neck kind of thing.

The half-up, half-down hairstyle is the versatility we all need when it comes to the daily dilemma of what to do with our morning mane.

In order to achieve this look, you’ll need a small to medium claw clip (depending on how long or short your hair is) and a tiny bit of hair firming spray.

Apply evo’s Miss Malleable Flexible Hairspray to dry hair, comb back and claw into place.

Make sure your clip is complimentary to the rest of your fit and you’ve nailed the effortless look.

A modernised nod to the Olsen twins and the butterfly clip era, the claw clips of 2021 come in teeny, tiny, butterfly-like sizes.

There’s something wildly nostalgic about channelling your childhood accessories when you’re well into your twenty and thirty somethings.

And we have the pioneers of the 90’s normcore fashion trends to thank for that.

So, Millennials and Gen Z babies here’s your long-awaited opportunity.

You can now execute the 90’s favourite hairstyles that were all the rage when you were in diapers.

To achieve the look, take a pin tail comb and make a middle part, splitting your face framers into two equal sections.
