Default How to determine what kind of hair clips to put on boutique bows?

How to determine what kind of hair clips to put on boutique bows?

My daughter is is 2.5 yr old with fine (thin hair). I would like to have something that work and can be used until she 6-7 years old (or whenever she decided she is done with them)

We do not have any boutique hair bows. The small bows that we have have alligator clips. For us, they got lost really easily (she put it off some too).
I never used french barrettes. To me, I feel like they are more secure but not sure if they are harder to put and comfy on the girl head.

When is it good to use alligator clips versus french barrettes? Pros and cons of each?

I am interested in order either a lot of 3, 3.5-4", 4-4.5".

My daughter had thin hair. I always used the french clips. I never had a problem. She is 8 now and still loves to wear hair bows. You can use the smaller french clips like the 60mm. They are probably the best size for a little girl and will still work on an older girl. I use a pony o to pull her back her hair and then put attach the french clip.
They are easy to put in you shouldn't have a problem with her taking them off herself.
