The Claw-Clip

The ultimate “It’s hot and I want my hair out of my face hairstyle” is the claw-clip. If you find that your hair is too voluminous to fit in the clip, try styling your hair in small twists before you put it up.

Zig Zag Cornrow Braids

Side Part

Start-off simple by switching your part. If you’re used to wearing a middle part, try pushing your hair to the side for some added volume.
