Default Hair bow ideas for older girls?

My aunt has a step daughter who is 11 and LOVES hair accessories. She lives in a different state and I thought it would be nice to send her a hair bow, mostly because we got stuff from them for xmas and I didnt know they were sending us stuff so I didnt get them anything. She wanted something in blue and pink but I dont want it to look so babyish. I got a light blue because she requested "Carolina blue" which I guess is a light blue in 7/8" and I got hot pink zebra stripe 1.5". Im not sure if a stacked bow would be good? I don't want to make something too cutesy since she is getting to those pre teen years and I really want her to like it. Anyone with older kids give me an idea of what yours like and what I could do please.

I sell a ton to older girls.

Is she into cheerleading? If so shell probably love any bow!

I just filled a big order for an 8th grader.. she mainly ordered Pony-O Streamers and small tux bows made of 1.5" and 7/8" I seem to find that smaller, simpler bows sell best for older girls. Right now all the older girls are wearing bows in the middle school and highschool.

Why not make her something small in simple that she can wear with a lot of stuff? What abut a 2" pinwheel with a flat center and a 1.5" tux that she can stack together or wear seperatly?
HTH!

My nieces are 11 and 13 and they like the tuxedo bows a lot. They wear a lot of my bows. They like the FOE headbands too.

My DD is 12 and will not touch any type of bow except a mini 3/8" boutique bow and tuxedo bow made with 7/8".
I get girls from the neighborhood coming over all the time before a special day out or pic day and these are the only 2 types of bows they will buy.
Oh and animal print and glitter lined clips too.

Headbands, fabric flowers, signed flowers... or the rolled roses can be made for the tween crowd..

Search and you will find tuts and ideas for all the above!

Good luck!

Thank you so much for the input because I was going to go with a stacked but I felt that may not be a good choice. Im glad I asked here before I made them. I will give the tuxedo bows a shot because I have never done those before. Ill probably give them a shot tonight who knows maybe that will be another bow I get into making for my show.

I went to dinner the other night and I saw a girl who looked about 13-14 wearing a huge glittery boutique-type bow. I pointed her out to my friend because I had never seen a girl that age wearing that type of bow. She had it on with a tshirt so I'm thinking she may have been part of a cheerleading squad.

Applique clippies, like the black skulls. My sister wears those she is 14. She also likes the tux bows. There is an excellent tutorial for them on youtube, titled 'how to make a simple bow' the lady does it with leopard ribbon. Only she uses 6 inches I use 8.

I have already made 3 tuxedo bows tonight and they are easy peasy. I have been using 8 inches a's well for 1.5" ribbon and I did 6" for 7/8". I just did one in the zebra print and I love it but I think it needs something in the middle. I may add some type of gem stone center or something girly. I don't know this girl very well so I'm totally winging it lol.
