Default Alligator vs Barettes... which one???

How big is too big for a bow on an alligator clip? I've seen several listed on eBay that are 4 inches and better offered with the option of a clip vs bow. How do you decide which to use with boutique stacked bows?

and in the end, the love you take... is equal to the love you make

I let the customers order them. Majority of them 4" and up like the french clips, smaller than that they are on alligator clips, unless they are heavy bows aka stacked bows that are 3" i will do double alligator clips.

I prefer the alligator clips- but I make the small clippies. To much competition in the larger bow range around here.

For my daughters hair- I like the french clips. I put all of my together- just as I want them. I go to alot of craft shows- and frankly just don't have the time to attach to clips while I am there.
