Well, I only make for my daughter (and for gifts) so far, so I only do alligator. It's the only thing that will stay in her hair, and it versatile & will work in a baby's hair (for when I make for friends' babies).

Thanks ladies!!! I have been using alligator clip for just about everything as well. But my sister in law has a 2 and 3 yr. old and she said she like the french clips. Although I noticed her girls clips fall apart easily. So I think that I will stick to mostly alligator usless someone requests the alternatives.


Thanks again!

I use alligator clip for all my bows, but one of my grandaughters has such thick hair I think I am going to try the french clips to see if they stay in better.

I agree. I love using the alligator clips but for larger bows I use the french clips.
