Ah, sweet baby hair. It grows funny, and it’s so fine and thin that nothing will stay in it to keep it looking like you even tried to make your daughter look presentable. That was my problem, anyway.
When my daughter was born almost five years ago, Bows 2 Cute was pretty new. It’s still going, and the choices have only expanded since then, and they’re perfect for fine, thin, or barely there hair, just like they claim.
I ordered a few bows designed for baby hair, and let me tell you, they stayed in much better than most of the alternatives I’d tried. Nothing’s going to keep your daughter from yanking them out with her hands (mine did that all the time), but if she’s pretty good about wearing things on her head, these bows might just make your day.
There are clips for older girls, too, so they’re not just for babies. In fact, we still have and use the Mini Korker (above) we got; it’s always been my favorite. There’s a selection of barrette and clip types to choose from, and you can customize your colors on some designs.
In addition, there are fabric-covered buttons on ponytail holders to dress up even the sportiest looks. You can also choose from headbands, hats, beanies, and more if you feel like branching out a bit. If you’re indecisive like me (I think I looked at the site for a week before ordering), they now have a starter set section where you can find bows for preemies, try out a few Snappies, or go with a theme, like animal print.
All but one of the bows and barrettes I ordered five years ago are still in really good shape, so they’re well-made. The demise of the other one was more because my daughter wouldn’t stop trying to take it apart than because of poor craftsmanship.
I think these are great for girls, from newborns to teens. There are a few things I might order for my daughter that I would even wear.
