Default Stupid question re pony o's....



This is probably going to be a dumb question but I'll ask anyway. I am trying to make pony o's with a bow attached-- I guess you could consider it a cheer type bow. Anyway, I am wondering how the bow will keep from getting all flat and yucky looking once I attach it and my daughter starts wearing it. I am thinking that, when you start to wear it and are twisting the pony o around the hair several times won't the bow start looking flat and lose it's shape? Am I making sense, lol?

I can't really answer your question except to say that when I make them for dd, I put them on a small french clip. They look the same and hold their shape really well. hths.

The french clips definitely works if it's NOT a cheer bow. Cheerleaders are allowed no metal majority of the time.

With care of proper care and storage your bow will remain beautiful. Spot cleaning and hanging to dry helps. A light starch with fluffing helps as well.

HTH!

Thank you, ladies. I have been attaching them to clips for a while now but I have never attached anything to a pony o before. I know that with pony streamers it would probably stay in good shape, but I am thinking that if you had a bow on the pony o it would get smooshed from trwistung the pony o around to secure the hair. Maybe I am just thinking too much into it, lol.

thanks again.

For my daughters bows/korkers/streamers on pony-o's I don't use that to actually secure the hair. I use a seperate, plain pony-o for securing the hair in the ponytail and then I put the bow/korker/streamer over that. I don't have to try to get it as tight and worry about the tibbon getting tangled as much. Hope that helps a little.

Why don't you make the bow removable. Put the bow on a alligator clip and then put some ribbon on the pony o to make it like an interchangeable headband. I know I've seen it discussed on here before. This way you could tighten the pony, and then put the clip on. Just an idea
