Appearance

The Squid Hairclip is a hairclip of the "S" from the Splatoon logo on it with a pair of cartoon eyes from the same logo at the top. The metal fastener of the hairclip only appears if worn by girls. How the hairclip is worn depends on the wearer's hairstyle.

  • Other hairstyles: The Squid Hairclip is worn on the side of the hair above the wearer's left ear. Exact placement varies between hairstyles.
