With over 20 years of experience creating hair bows, The Bow Lady knows the importance of buying the correct fastener for your bows, and the choice of a clippie or a french clip is an important one.

The Bow Lady clippie is the strongest, most durable fastener available for the extremely fine thin hair. It only takes a little fuzz on top to attach one of The Bow Lady clippies. Just because you've tried other clippies and they didn't stay in doesn't mean ours won't (not all clippies are created equal)! The smaller inset photo shows the clippie which opens when squeezed and closes when you let go. For those little angels with no hair our clippie bows interchange on all of our infant/baby headbands. Once she has enough fuzz the clippie can clip directly into her hair. The larger photo clearly shows the points are smoothly rounded and the ribbon bow completely covers the clippie. The infant, small, medium, large, and extra-large size hair bows are available with a clippie.

On the other hand, for little girls with thicker hair, curly hair, or for fastening your bow over your ponytail or pigtails, the french clip is what you may prefer. The medium bows are available with the small (2-1/4" long) french clip, while the large bows are available with the small or large (3" long) french clip.
