Default When lining a barrette - which color do you match, bottom bow or knot?

Hi Ladies - just wondering if you are suppose to line the barrette with the same color ribbon as the bottom-most bow or the same color as the knot attaching the bow to the barrette? Is there are normal standard? Or is it acceptable to do either? Thanks so much for your help and input!!!

That's a very good question. I'm interested in seeing answers. I think on average I match to the bow color. But I also use a nonslip piece that mostly covers the knot center ribbon so you wouldn't see the different color so much. HTH!

I used to match the knot, but now I match the bottom bow. I think it looks better overall, and it blends in better. Just my thoughts!

I match the bottom bow plus I use non slip grips on mine so you can't really see the center knot ribbon.

This. It blends in really well if you match the bottom bow.

I match the center knot. However I bring the center knot ends and glue those to the clip and then finish covering the clip.
