I would get both. I started out using only single but now I use double almost exclusively. I like double prong for larger flowers, but on some interchangeable headbands (like the nylon headbands I bought not too long ago) only a single prong will fit through. It's really a preference thing.

I think it's a preference thing too. I started with double prongs, now I use both single and double. I think lining double prongs are easier.

i think it's both a preference thing as well as a regional thing. i use both: my sculptures are almost all on double prongs, unless someone requests something differently, since some of those can feel a little heavy. on my smaller bows, i use single prong, and the larger bows/flowers i use double...however most people around here seem to be more used to french barrettes still (which i use for stacks).

Thanks for asking this. I had been wondering too.

Where are you purchasing them if you don't mind me asking.

I found some at Michaels, but they were a tad pricey, so I didn't buy a bunch. That is really the own craft store in my area, so I'll have to order them online.

I buy mine from Sally's... I have the Beauty Club Card and I think I pay $4.86 or something like that for 100 double prong clips...
