Question punk tween bows

does anyone have any suggestions? I have customer that would like "punk" bows for ages 9-12. My girls are 4 and 5 so I am not too up on the tween trends. She also wants JB and Peace sign stuff. She said no "girl bows" Can anyone help me out? I would love to see pics

well, I can't help you out on the punk type bows, but my nieces are 11 and 13 and they like my tuxedo bows. Sometimes I put them on headbands and they like them too.

I have a 13 yr old, what her and her friends are all wearing right now are glitter clips, sequin headbands, flowers big and small, headbands with feathers...

Personally I would talk to the mom and see if she wants 'bows' or hair accessories, I sell more clips, headbands, and flowers for the tweens and teens than actual bows. As for bows, I think maybe firecrackers in funky colors, avoid all the pink-y baby colors. Or maybe very simple single layer bows with bottlecap or button centers.

This is just from my own experience, but my daughter wouldn't be caught dead wearing a stacked or OTT bow.

I was thinking firecracker bows too! What about rolled rosettes on headbands? Drive by the high school or JR high when school lets out. You should be able to get some great ideas. I have a class at the high school (I'm going to school for my BA) and I see tons of girls wearing the big huge flowers and lots of skinny headbands with the tuxedo bows. Skull bottle cap clippies are popular too.

I would make tuxedo bows in like hot pink, purple, black, neon colors......and colored zebra stripes.....If they're going for the "punk" look they're not going to want the rolled flowers and stuff like that I wouldn't think...but that's just my opinion.....
