Mini claw clips were popular in the ‘90s (as seen on stars like Hilary Duff and Sarah Michelle Gellar) but they look modern again! The young-set are wearing them nostalgically with several across the hairline. But you can also do simple side twists, or an accented bun or ponytail. For a highly sophisticated hairstyle like Kate Middleton’s, use super tiny butterfly clips in a color that matches your hair.
Clipping your hair is a great way to give it instant lift at the roots where it might otherwise be flat. Curly hair looks great, but has a tendency to fall flat at the roots for type 2 waves due to gravity. Fortunately, you can offset gravity's force and add body back to limp roots quickly and easily by using jaw clipping.
WHAT YOU'LL NEED
To start, you’ll need some jaw clips. You can either use the small/mini ones or regular/large sized ones, depending on your hair density. If you want a ton of volume, and have a ton of hair, go big! Smaller clips will give you some volume, but not an overpowering amount.
The number of clips you’ll need depends on the size of the clips as well as how much volume you’re looking to add. If you just want a little volume in the front, you’ll only need a few clips. If you’re looking to add volume to the front and crown of your hair, you’ll want extra.
Also, be sure that your hair is damp when applying the clips. As hair goes from damp to dry, its shape is determined. Adding jaw clips to dry hair will only disturb the curl pattern.
