Step 3: When we get the cut acetate hair claw pieces or acrylic hair claw pieces, our next job is to shape. Putting the acetate acrylic pieces into the mold of hair clips, and then through the pressure machine, extrusion finalize the mold. This process typically takes about 10 seconds. According to the hardness of different materials, time will be slightly different, acetate materials generally 10 seconds finalize, acrylic needs 15 seconds. Only enough time can guarantee the standard shape.

Step 4: Glue the spring buckle. Spring buckle has 3 kinds of materials: acetate, plastic, ABS. According to different material combination requirements,it must use different spring buckle. Acetate material needs acetate spring buckle and professional acetate special glue. Acetate is usually fused using acetone, whereas acrylics must be fused using methylene chloride. If used incorrectly, the spring buckle will fall off or even break. In addition, their costs are different. Many hair clips manufacturers will consider cost and use cheap spring buckle, which can lead to poor quality hair clips or a poor customer experience.

In addition, the position of the spring also needs to be accurate, otherwise the hair claw will easily twist.

Producing hair claws is a simple process, but care must be taken!

Step 5: Spray eco-friendly paint. After we clean the surface of the hair clips, we need to spray paint the hair clips. Spray paint can not only make the surface of the hair clips brighter, but also create a smooth paint protection to protect the hair clips, which is easier to clean, the hair claw’s texture will be better.

We use environmentally friendly paint that has passed environmental testing. Typically, eight coats of paint are sprayed. This process takes at least two minutes.

The process of painting usually uses gloss finishing. If you prefer matte finishing, we can also provide it.

Step 6. Assemble the spring

You may not know how to attach a hair claw’s spring. we have video you can see 


Using a chopstick-like tool, we use leverage to bend the spring, insert the spring buckle, and insert the spring pin. Typically, a skilled worker can install 800 to 1000 hair Claws a day.

The spring is made of spring steel, which has good elasticity. Through environmental protection plating, color protection, under normal conditions to ensure that the color is not faded for 8 to 10 months. We usually provide spring in gold or silver.

Many hair claw suppliers use cheap springs, which usually appear black rust after 3 to 4 months of using.

Step 7: Customize the color of your personalized hair clip’s logo

The new design has painted white angel wings. We use artificial coloring to ensure uniform lines and correct colors. This process is also a test for workers, if not skilled workers, it will take a lot of time, and will make the logo of the hair clip is not perfect. The paint will set about 3 minutes after the color is applied, and then the worker will use a thinner (alcohol) to wipe off the excess paint. It’s a very fun process, you can design patterns and colors you like, and we have a wide selection of custom hair clips. Such personalized design is very popular with customers. Do you have any good ideas?

Step 8: spot drill

There are many kinds of diamonds, commonly used Swarovski diamond, Czech diamond, domestic glass diamond, etc. Prices vary widely. Swarovski diamonds are the most expensive. Glass diamonds are much cheaper, and the price difference can reach five to ten times. We usually use Czech and domestic glass diamonds.

spot drill, we use ultrasonic point drilling machine, through the workers into the carved hole one by one, instead of using glue, because the texture of glue is very poor, the diamond is easy to fall off.

This process requires a lot of time cost, especially labor cost. So if your design with a lot of diamonds, the grip will be expensive.

The size of the diamond is usually used 1mm, 1.5mm, 2mm, 2.5mm, 3mm, 5mm, etc., and various shaped diamonds. If you need to personalize it, you can contact us. We will send you a diamond color card suitable for the hair clips.
