When you first wear a huggie open the hinge wide, slide the post into your piercing and squeeze closed. Wait to hear a CLICK this means they are securely fastened. No click? Try again.

Scream Pretty are delighted with the compliments we get about how secure our huggies are with reliable CLICK closures. When you buy huggies, always check the fastening is secure, not too tight, not too loose – you wont want to loose them!

5. What’s the difference between sleeper earrings and Huggie earrings?

There are different terms for this style of earrings some people call Huggie earrings, sleeper earrings, or sometimes clicker earrings, but these are all the same.


6. How do I know what size of huggie to buy?
-       Standard Size Huggie – Fits almost everyone. 6.5mm internal diameter

Everyone has different sized ears and earlobes, consider which piercing  you want to wear your huggie and consider the size of the  huggie for that particular piercing. Also some piercings are positioned closer to the edge of the ear (go small) or further in from the edge – go larger.
Some people with fleshier lobes, often think a standard sized huggie earring will be too small – but are surprised when they fit!

-       Large Size Huggie – Fits All people 10.5mm

The larger huggie can look more like a hoop on small ears, so if you want the look of a huggie for this size, you should have larger lobes. However this larger size will also fit most conch piercings in the middle of the ear – have fun an experiment.

7. How long after piercing my ears can I wear huggie earrings?

You should always wait at least 6 weeks after a new piercing before putting in a new earring. Let your ears heal, so you can be confident when moving  to a new style.

Huggie earrings are super versatile, wear them in your ears -  standard lobe piercing, second lobe or upper lobe piercing, tragus and helix. We even have customers that wear their Scream Pretty huggies in their nose piercing.

9. What is a reverse Huggie?

Reverse huggie earrings, don’t have a click closure function, they are an open circle that hugs the ear and uses the design at the front to the lobe to secure the earring in place. A stylish twist on the standard style huggie earring.

10. What is the difference between a hoop earring and a huggie?

A hoop earring is larger than a huggie, and will drop down from the ear, leaving space between ear and hoop. A huggie will be close to the skin with little or no gapping.

Scream Pretty have a wonderful range of hoops, and charm hoops which create a standout ear stack – these all compliment the huggie earrings so you can mix and match hoops and huggies to create your signature style.

Earrings are like the punctuation marks of your outfit—they add the finishing touch, elevate your style, and sometimes even make a bold statement. Among the diverse range of earring styles available, huggie earrings have been gaining popularity for their versatility and chic appeal.

If you're looking to add some flair to your ear game, here's your ultimate guide on how to style and wear huggie earrings.

 Styling Tips for Huggie Earrings

Mix and Match

Don't be afraid to mix and match huggie earrings with other earring styles like studs, hoops and charm hoops for a curated ear stack. Layering different sizes and shapes adds dimension and visual interest to your look. You know your style – lean into it all the way to your ears.

    Everyday Elegance

    Huggie earrings are perfect for everyday wear due to their comfort and versatility. Pair them with casual outfits like jeans and a T-shirt for a touch of effortless chic, or dress them up with a sleek blazer for a polished office look.

      Statement Stacking

      For a bolder statement, stack multiple huggie earrings along the earlobe or mix them with larger hoop earrings for a dramatic effect. Play with asymmetry by wearing different designs on each ear for an edgy, modern look.

         Accessorise Wisely

        Consider your hairstyle and neckline when styling huggie earrings. Opt for sleek updos or side-swept hair to showcase your earrings, and choose necklines that complement rather than compete with your jewellery.

          Day to Night Transition

          Huggie earrings seamlessly transition from day to night, making them a versatile accessory for any occasion. Swap out your daytime huggies for embellished or statement huggies to instantly elevate your evening ensemble

          Caring for Your Huggie Earrings

          To keep your huggie earrings looking their best, avoid exposing them to harsh chemicals, perfumes, or excessive moisture. Store them in a dry, clean jewellery box or pouch (we like putting them in a zip lock bag) when not in use to prevent scratches and tarnishing. Regularly clean your huggie earrings with a soft cloth to remove dirt and oils and maintain their shine.

          Honestly the above is the best advice – but we are all human, and I know you are going to pop your huggies in your ears and keep them there for 3 months, til you feel like a change just like the rest of us. No judgement here!
