All of my hair bows are made from quality grosgrain, and all ribbon ends heat sealed to prevent fraying (your bows will NEVER fray)! As a buyer, YOU have the option of the bow being placed on alligator clips are french barrettes. As said previously, ALL customs orders are welcome! I LOVE to create bows for little princesses.
