I am in California, and I have never seen a little one with big bows. In fact, I rarely see kids with anything in their hair. If I do it's one of those little ones that Walmart sells.
Bows and boutique clothes are not popular here in the SF bay area.

I live in KY, and either the bows are little or they are big. I think my DD is the only one with medium size bows. LOL She's 5, and I put 3.5 inch bows in her hair.

Okay..what is considered a big bow in inches? My bows average about 4 inches. My daughter has some solid colored ones I bought at Dillards years ago and those were 6 inches.

I don't see a lot of big bows around here - more plastic headbands, plastic barettes and regular old ponytail elastics.

We do occasionally see little girls with basic bows that match their outfits, but you can tell they are not from around here!

My daughter has hundreds of bows (I am afraid to count them), tons of little clips and pony-Os to match almost everything. We never know what mood little miss priss is going to be in when we get ready to leave, so each outfit has several choices.

I did have one little girl who came over and was in AWE at the bows - her mom was one who rarely even brushed this kid's hair. Poor kid did not even know what a "hair bow" was - she kept saying "All those thingies for her hair - what are they called again?"

My MIL is CONSTANTLY changing out K's bows for cheap little plastic barettes from Dollar General when she visits with her - she tells me that no one wears bows. And I tell her WE WEAR BOWS!!!!!!!!

I'm in San Antonio and I see big bows, but they are mostly the solid grosgrain basic boutique bows. I had never seen one of those big colorful loopy bows in real life until I made one. Other than that I usually see the small Walmart bows or no bows at all.

My DD does not leave home without her hair brushed and some sort of hair bow/clip in it. She's almost 2 and I've put all different size bows on her from tiny 1" all the way up to 5" bows. The one in my siggy picture is a 5" I think.

Well I'm far away from you all! I'm in Sydney Australia and nobody wears bows really. There's plenty of stores that match their hair accessories with outfits so everyone buys them. I used to as well but got sick of all the kids looking the same. So now I make my daughters bows and we get lots of compliments when she wears them. I never let Holly leave the house unless her hair is brushed and she has to be my walking advertisement as well so of course a bow is added to her hair.

Im stationed in Germany and my customers vary. Big bows for big girls and small bows for small girls. At the moment I am in Arkansas and everywhere I go I see HUGE bows on babies just a few months old.
Not to offend anyone here, but personally I want to see the baby, not the bow. My 9 month old wears my infants bows, which are 2inches. And occasionally a small korker which is 3in.
Since Ive been here, I have made quite a few huge bows for babies. I guess it depends on the parents taste. But Ive noticed that the further south you get, the bigger the bows.
