I would always pull a portion of the hair up in a ponytail and add the clip right above the ponytail for more support.
This is the same thing I had to do when my DD younger. She is 10 now and doesn't wear the OTT bows but I still prefer this method because she has thin hair. It just gives the clip more support to stay in place. Also have you tried the alligator clips with teeth? I prefer them over the regular ones!
