Default Jumbo bows....what type of clip?

Hi! I'm making some extra large and jumbo 4-6" basic bows for a local boutique. She wants them on alligator clips like the other ones that I've made her, but everywhere I've looked they are mounted on french clips. What would you do? This lady's never had a boutique before, so I don't know if she really knows what she wants KWIM? Any advice would be appreciated!

Depending on the way her customers will be using them she might be thinking alligator clip (like for interchangable headbands/hats) but she might not realize how heavy the bow might be... I would talk to her and ask her if she's sure and expain your reasoning behind asking... and if she still wants them on the clips, I would just try to make them as light as possible-use small but reliable amounts of glue, etc... but the only reason I would think her customers would want a 4-6" bow on an alligator clip is if they were going to use them on a headband or on a hat... JMO... HTH

They have really long alligator clips at hair stores. I would go by a Sally's if you have one near and take a look.

Thank you for the suggestions. I know that she is wanting them for the older girls, so I think that she would probably want the french clips. She just doesn't know it yet! lol
