These days, you can’t scroll on TikTok without seeing a French twist hair tutorial. Done with either someone’s fingers or maybe a pencil, the twisted hairstyle has quickly become popular, thanks to its intricate appearance and the fact that most twists are secured with a pretty claw clip. As of March 17, the hashtag ‘frenchtwist’ on TikTok currently has 23 million views.

While ’90s babies will remember how popular the claw clips were back in the day, what’s old is new again! The claw clip is, without a doubt, back and better than ever. However, these clips have, thankfully, been given a makeover and now come in tons of different shades and designs.

From translucent styles to unique shapes, claw clips are the must-have accessory at the moment. So there’s no surprise that they’re readily available at the drugstore. But the clips available, for the most part, are….a little plain. If you want to snag a more special clip, no need to splurge. Brands like Princess Polly, Free People and tons of shops on Etsy offer clips for less than $15 to $20.

Keep scrolling to shop eight claw clips that are all under $30 — and are much cuter than what you’ll find at a drugstore.
