Claw Ponytail

The use of claw hair bands has made a comeback and taken the internet by storm thanks to TikTok trends.

Claw hair clips were part of a necessary accessory in the 90s, and Jane Fonda sported her claw ponytail like a diva.

I don’t usually go for this look in formal settings rather sport it in a more casual one as it provides a messy voluminous look.

It’s one of the easiest hairstyles on the list. To create this hairdo, all you gotta do is get your claw clip and tie half your hair up like a loose ponytail.
