Question Alligator Clip or French Barrette????

O.K. ladies, here's the question, I make a 4-5" cheer style and pinwheel bow and usually I put them on a french barrette but I have seen them listed on etsy with alligator clips on them. Which do you use or prefer????


TIA

I do any of the big bows for my daughters on barrettes. Especially a cheer bow. The alligator clips will eventually slip out since they are open on one end.

Anything 4" and up, barretes, it feels more secure to me.

This is what i do. Measure your bow. If it is bigger than 4 inch i start with 50mm french clip.Sometimes 40mm if it is for toddler
