Thank you everyone for your input! I am surprised that so many use the alli clips...I guess it's because when I first started, I found that they never stayed in my dd's hair. French barrettes and alli W/teeth do stay in and so I just used those in all my bows. I'm thinking I need to broaden my horizons a bit...lol.
Thanks again...now off to search for threads for non-slip grip options!
