There are so many different kinds of ribbons being used in making hair bows. Here are just a few: grosgrain, organza, single faced satin, double faced satin, acetate, jacquards, velvet, sequin, ruffle, lace, marabou, frayed denim, sheers, metallic, polka dots, stripes, patterned, textured, stitched, printed, reversible, woven, checkered, plaids, glitter, gathered, frayed, and the list could go on I am sure. We haven’t even talked about all of the extra things you can add to hair bows like appliqués, hand-painted ceramics, jewels, crystals, monograms initials, names, rickrack, buttons, and so many other things that people get creative with. Read all about how they make them and see if they put a lot of time and effort into making them in a boutique style and boutique quality.
There are so many hair bows web sites and eBay auctions now, that it is hard to find that one hair bow you are looking for, and for the right price. Don’t be afraid to try out a few different places, and try ordering just one hair bow from a few different places before you settle down on your favorite hair bow maker. Also, don’t be afraid to ask the maker questions about their hair bows. I would also encourage you to try different sizes as well. Just because your girl is little, doesn’t mean she won’t look just like a little princess in with larger hair bows. If she looks cute in pig tails or two pony tails, try getting two small hair bows or two medium sized hair bows. Read what the widths are on each site because what one company may call small another would call medium.
