Default What is the diff between basic bow and boutique bow?

I have been looking through many post and photos. Some of you ladies have ribbon-fingers! Your bows are gorgeous!

There are mentions of boutique bows, basic bows, etc. What is the difference between the both of them? I followed several tutorials online and 2 that I had purchased, they seemed to be using the same folding method?

Is there one tutorial that you swear by to make your bows? I am looking for a tutorial that would clear my muddled head on the different methods I can use to make a boutique bow, butterfly bow, basic bow, pinwheel bow, etc.

If you go to Hip girls instructions section you will find most of your answers.

If that doesn't cut it,
these are good free instructions,
Free Hair Bow Instructions: hairbow free directions, hair bow business work at home

and My personal Fav paid instructions are The Ribbon Retreats version called Tricks of the Trade!

From what I have read, those terms are used fairly loosely, it depends on whos instructions you have learned from as to what you call them. Most often the Boutique bow is refering to the more twisted loops, and the basic the loops are not as twisted. I know that makes no sense but hopefully I have helped a little.

Thanks! That certainly does help!

I have seen those tutorials on They are fab! But I was still quite lost with the terms used.
