A small suburn of the North East of England, the 'howdon claw' refers to a fringe on a female which looks like it has been shaped around a coke can, such is its pronounced cylindrical-ness. You can see young charvers sporting the Howdon Claw.
"Ah's gannin oot doon the keyside the neet... The bords ye find doon there are geet classy an that, none o yer howdon claw shite man."
