Default Hairbows keep falling off hair

So I've always had difficulty keeping big bows on my daughter's head when not attached to a headband (figured it was because she has thin, fine hair) but now one of my customers says her daughter's bow keep falling off as well...
is the alligator clip too flimsy/cheap?
is the bow too big/heavy?
what do you all use to keep the bows from falling down?
Any help is appreciated, thank you!

Glue a non slip grip to it. Search gripzies.

it could be that the bow is to heavy or the clip just isn't grabbing enough hair, i have used gripzies and also duck liner that really helps keep them in !

The bows might be too heavy. I use french barrette.

Veronica, the lady that I was talking about finally got back to me and she wanted french clip. So glad I waited. I actually send her an email and her husband got back to me and said that she was out of town on business trip and to please wait for her. What a great husband, lol.

Have you seen the waffle weave kitchen shelf liner? You can get it at the $1 Tree, It comes in sheets. It's sort of like a rubber mat (has no sticky side). Cut to size and glue on your alligator clip. Cheep way to make your own no slip grips.

We have used hot glue and rubberbands. For the aligator clips, put a line line of hot glue down the center of the clip and keep the clip open until the glue dries. The the barettes, loop small rubber bands around the clip part of it.
