This TikTok Trend For Thick Hair Uses A Retro Tool

Hairstyles are constantly changing. From bobs to braids, there's always something new popping up. But all good trends come from somewhere, and it most often is from a decade or two ago. According to TikTok, the latest thick hair hack is just a '90s trend reincarnated. Grab your caboodle, my friends, because it's time to bring back a trend and get healthier hair in the process.

The '90s are having a serious fashion moment decades later. While it seems like just about every celebrity is rocking fanny packs and tiny sunglasses, according to Cosmopolitan, it's time for claw hair clips to have their moment to shine as well.

TikTok is filled with life-changing tips, and the claw beauty hack is no different. According to multiple TikTok videos, the claw clip can even be used for thick hair, because there's nothing better than a beauty trend that's inclusive for everyone. Here's everything you need to know about the thick hair trend, so you can pin your locks back in style and even get healthier hair in the process.

Wrap your thick hair around the claw clip

If you're not familiar with the '90s trend, here's a quick breakdown. The claw clip is, well, shaped like a claw. It can open and close around your hair to pin it back halfway or completely up. Up until now, thick haired people were left out of the equation for the updo. Even the large claws couldn't seem to hold up all your hair if you had thicker locks. However, according to TikTok, people with thicker hair can wrap their hair around the claw to get it all up. That way they can still rock the claw clip trend too.

Here's a step-by-step for anyone new. According to the viral TikTok tutorial, you just take your hair into a ponytail, twist it a few times, and use the claw to clip it in. Then, wrap the rest of your ponytail around the claw one more time. After that, you'll have a secured updo that can hold your thick hair back. It's seriously that simple.

Hair claws are super affordable

Unlike other extremely overpriced trends (looking at you, Celine $2,000 sunglasses), hair claws are super affordable. According to Refinery29, there are tons of claw clips on Amazon that are made for thick hair. You know, to give you a little help with the hair hack. However, there are also small, independent brands that have some super trendy styles as well. According to Instagram, Kai Stone has some incredible handmade options, ranging from evil eye and ying and yang prints to quirky pastel flowers. 

Of course, it wouldn't be a TikTok trend without some fabulous celebrity inspiration as well. According to Glamour, Hailey Bieber, Kendall Jenner, and Bella Hadid are big fans of the claw hair clip trend. So, whether you're looking to nail a '90s look or go for a supermodel off-duty style, this is the accessory for you. Who says that you can't have it all? Even with thick hair.

Claw clips are a healthier alternative to hair ties

Not sold on the trend just yet? Maybe this hair claw clip tip will change your mind. According to Mane Addicts, hair claws are actually healthier for your hair. The publication states that using a hair tie, and more specifically taking out a hair tie, can actually rip out strands of your hair. Claw clips don't do that, even when you wrap your hair around it.

On top of that, claw clips won't give you a headache like a too-tight hair tie can. All in all, this trend is not only super cute but it's all-around healthier as well. If only all trends could be this way.

Whether you're hoping to nail the hairstyle or just get an easier updo, you really can't go wrong with the hair clip — no matter what thickness your strands are. Thank goodness for throwback accessories making a comeback.
