I think yes it is necessary! When I have made them without a bottom bow the spikes don't sit right or get caught in the hair.
Someone on HG once explained it as, It's like a foundation to a house, you don't see it but without the building is not sound.
There are a couple options for the bottom bow, I use a basic boutique style bow (similiar to a pinwheel with no tails). Or you can use an upside twisted boutique bow which is great if you want to add drama and height.
