Default ? for you ladies with older girls!

I have zero experience with bows for older girls (my twins are 9 months). SO I'm making some large TBBs for a show I have coming up. They are made with 1.5" and about 4.5 inches wide. My question is, should I put these on french clips?? I always use alligator clips, but thats because my girls have very little hair and they have to wear headbands with their bows.
I think french clips are pretty standard on bows for bigger girls right??
Thanks ladies!

I have a 7 year old(and a 1 year old) and use alligator clips. However, I'm going to try the french clips for my heavier larger layered bows. French clips seems more secure for all day play imo.

I make very few bows on french clips. My daughter is 15 and she just slips the clips right in her pony or wherever she is wearing it.

Thanks! I think I'll keep them on alligator clips for the ones that aren't heavy and use the french clips for heavier bows...

My sister wants french clips on ALL of my niece's bows. She has thick but very slick hair. This is the only way the bows stay in. She is six.

I agree-I use alligator clips for anything 4 inches and under and above that use french clip.

Every time someone orders a bow from me, no matter the size, they always ask for an alligator clip. I guess it's just what people prefer.

I use french barrettes for my 4 and 6 yo DDs bows. Otherwise the bow slips right out or gets all crooked and drives me insane you could maybe do half and half

My dd is 11 and she only likes wearing the alligater clips. She says the french clips hurt her head and they get stuck in her hair.
