| | Re: Alligator clip or French Barrettes?
I use double prong alligator clips for everything including big bows, unless someone asks specifically for something different. As a mom of girls, I personally prefer the alligator clips with some type of non-slip grip. I tried a french barrette once and my daughter hated it. It was harder to put in and she complained the whole time about it pulling her hair. Maybe I'm just bad at putting them in. lol. I use the hairbow as an accessory, not to actually hold her hair up. I pull her hair up with a regular ponytail holder and then slip the clip in. Does that make sense? I've never had any problem with them coming out. If they are just for your own personal use, I would say whichever you prefer. HTH
