Default Ribbon glue

What type of glue is best to securely keep grossgrain ribbon on hair clips? What about tacking the ends of woven headbands? This will be my first attempt so wish me luck!

I use a tiny bit of hot glue. I smooth it with my finger after its glued to get ridges out & make sure it adheres.

I use hot glue to attach them to a clip and sometimes wrap a ribbon for extra strength. Now when I am working on the bows themselves, I use Fabric Tac. I am getting ready to post and ask about how it holds up.

I prefer hot glue for everything but my fingers are used to the heat now (sad huh) you have to be able to stand pushing and spreading the hot glue before it cools or you will get lumps.

I read somewhere on here that some people take a lighter and QUICKLY run it past the strings they said that worked too but I haven't actually tried it.
