1. Claw Clips by The Hair Edit and Anthropologie
As you probably know from the internet, claw clips are back from the 00s and are back in style. Large clips can fix long thick hair and even pigtails, while small clips can fix bangs back or fix a semi-hairstyle. While yesteryear barrettes tended to be cheap and break after a few wears, modernized barrettes have stronger teeth and shapes that are better suited to different hairstyles.
Ulta offers several designs to choose from – just think about how much hair you want to clip up and your style, i.e. do you like whimsical patterns or classic neutral tones? To fix long or thick hair, use The Hair Edit’s Octopus Claw Clip, which is claimed to hold hair in place from morning to night.
$10 in Ulta
For a set of cute miniature clips that you can insert into your hair for fun or use to pull small strands back, try the Anthropologie Mini Claw Set. Each set includes eight clip-on earrings in complementary neutrals and prints.

If scrunchies aren’t for you, consider the review-approved Lululemon Skinny Scrunchies. When testing hair ties, we found them to be the best as they hold the hair comfortably and feel durable. You can get them in colorful or neutral packs of six.
