Question Need some help, Please

I am fairly new here and you all are very talented. I get very inspired looking out your work.I have been making bows for 3 years. My question might be stupid one but my DM always said if you don't know the answer then it is not stupid. I have made some of the "Funky" layered bows and they turned out pretty well but my thing is when I put one in my daughter's hair for our shopping trip it did not want to stay in very well. I have never had this problem before. It seemed maybe a little too heavy. I had a base bow, twisted boutique, spikes and loopy loops. Is this too much to put in one? Most that I have seen has this much or more in them. And it also seemed to be too thick even moving my centers a little. Does anyone else have this problem? And what is the best way to fix it? Sorry so long. I love making them I just want to make sure other people will not have this problem if they buy them.

Was it on an alligator clip or french barrette? They seem to stay better when they are on a french barrette. However I have some seen some huge bows on alligator clips.

You might want to try it on a french clip. do you add a no slip grip of any sort? You could try that too. Have you tried one without the bottom layer to see if that helps lighten it up? I don't make many layered bows. I'm just throwing guesses and suggestions!

Also you are right, no question is a dumb question.

also, make sure that the center of the bow sits squarely on the top of the clip
