I believe the most popular style of cheer bow these days is the tails down bow. If not sure how to make, I agree with the NoBowNoGo tutorial. Super easy and inexpensive.

As far as styles these days....that's a tough one. There is a design floating around called the "Tic Toc", I believe it was originated at www.yellaribbon.com. There are no instructions on this site for it. I believe you'd kinda have to play with it to make your own pattern. I haven't had a moment to try it yet, but the bow looks super fun.

I have used a lot of sequins and zebra print this year. Sequin fabric can be found at Joanns (in limited colors here in NY), or www.syfabrics.com has a huge assortment of colors and their prices are reasonable.

If looking for Spandex (another popular material for bow making), you should check out www.spandexworld.com.

Not knowing what team colors you are working with, makes it a little difficult for suggestion. If you want to share, I'd be happy to help you out best I could.

My DDs team colors are garnet and yellow gold. One would think they would be easy to match. I wish that were the case. I have attached a couple of bows that I have made for some programs this season. Hope this helps.

As far as ribbon goes, my minimum width I use for a cheer bow base is 2 1/4". For high school girls, they may want to go even bigger than that. www.teapartyribbons.com has a great selection of 3" ribbon that makes a huge bow, but I just love it. The pic with the 3" is the one of my daughter in hers.

Thank you sooo much for your advice... I am looking now at all of the weblinks you gave me...

the colors are green and gold - though I was told that apparently they use yellow instead, since gold is not being matched with... I was thinking of using a yellow-gold... similiar to LSU's yellow gold...

That is the same gold I use in our bows. You may also wish to check out RABOM (www.ribbonsandbowsohmy.com). They have a great selection of grosgrain ribbon as well.

You may want to also try Schiff's website, you can get just about any width in any color, all in the same place. I have found difficulty getting wholesale ribbon, or at least the lower prices, at some retailers/sellers in wide widths like you would use for cheer bows (2.25" and 3"), as long as you have a little time to wait for it to arrive.
Hip Girl has some great ribbon selections, I think she may purchase from YAMA which has a great ribbon texture and unbelievable color(s). However, you have to watch the length you purchase it in. Once, I bought 12, 5-yard increments of 7/8" ribbon, but didn't think the whole thing through until I actually received 12 little rolls of ribbon all neatly shrink wrapped in 5 yd increments. Talk about a Duh! moment. Now that I have a brain, I order in the 25 or 50 yard rolls. Her shipping was warp speed fast, and she worked with me on a different order to get it to me when I ordered at 5pm on Monday at my house by 10 am Tuesday morning!! She really is awesome, I'd check out her ribbon and stuff.
Syfabrics is great for sequin and spandex, I've used spandex world and spandex house before as well. Additionally, for a little bling on your bows, check out dazzling designs for rhinestones and rhinestuds.
HTH!
