Default best length for pony streamers

I am going to make some to add to my etsy store, but since my only daughter is totally bald I don't have a clue about length. How long should I make them?

I thought I would tell customers that I would make them whatever length they want but have a standard that is the default. Did that make sense?

For girls in the 3-5 range I cut mine 16 inches, for girls in the 6-9 I cut them 18 inches and for the girls 10 and over it 20 is my standard cut. It all depends on the customers likes but I have found these to be good lengths. You cuold cut at 14 inches as well if you don't like them quite as long.

i offer two lengths, 6" and 9 "
6 inch ones are cut 12 inches so they hang 6 inches each side
and 18 for the 9" so they hang 9" each side

I find that 18 inches is a great "default" length.

I do mine 14" and 18". I was just working on some tonight. The "Daddy's Girl" ribbon is really cute as a pony streamer.

How many ribbons do you use? I have been doing them with 4 but tonight I did them with 5. I think I like 5.

How much do you charge?

Great. I just made my first and it turned out really well. I did all shades of pink. I made it 16 in so each strand is 8 in. I'll post a pic shortly.

I have no idea what to charge. I was thinking $5.50, but I don't know if that is reasonable?

I do mine 7", 9" and 11". It really all depends on the girls age and hair length. I've found that these lengths cover just about all of them. These measurements are for each side so you would cut your ribbon that length x 2. 14" to make a 7" streamer, etc...

I cut mine 12 inches for younger girls and 14 for older girls. I use on average 5-6 strands of ribbon depending on the width and print.

I have sold sports streamer with softball print ribbon for $6 each. I am thinking of giving a discount for the younger girls who need two for pigtails. I'm not sure what I am going to charge yet.
