100 – Hair Bows Terminology

Makers of bows have to rapidly find out that there are various widths of ribbons. Some the lesser pre-owned ones are the really wide ribbons in 2.25″, which make a really big and thick bow.

Sometime ribbon factories make ribbon in 1″ widths. This width is extremely near the 7/8″ and is often difficult to tell the difference. Ribbon manufacturing can bring out their special widths, but usually, these are your only options.

The 1.5″ width is a great ribbon width to start with to the fact that there is more to hold and work with. The 7/8″ or 5/8″ widths are good for making center knots for the bows. The 3/8″ is a good width for really little bows or they make a great center for a larger hair bow.

I would not recommend knotting a 3/8″ width ribbon unless it was for a very small hair bow, or you are putting it on top of a 7/8″ or 5/8″ width ribbon and then knotting it for an enjoyable appearance.

Some ribbon makers like to use wood burning tools for what they call “heat sealing” their ends. Most grosgrains will melt at really heats, which is just all bow makers suggest when the say their ends are heat sealed.

There are now other tools being made just for sealing off ribbon ends to keep them from tearing, and a number of ribbon are now using them to their customers for making hair bows.

Another popular way to keep your ribbon ends from tearing is by using Fray Check â„¢ or any other brand name to the ends of your ribbon. It is a liquid that, when dry, will harden and not permit the ends to fray.

These items can be found in any craft store. Be careful when checking out different brands because some will leave a mark on the ribbon and moist clear. You do not want to use a lot though that it drips off the hair bows or leaves a runny discount the ribbon.

Then there are the hair clip or hair fastener options for hair bows. The alligator clip appears like an alligator’s mouth when it opens and closes. It normally has no teeth on this style of clip. They do however been in double pronged and single pronged.

Single pronged is nice when you are opting for the least heavy and bulky, and double pronged is nice when you that additional prong to hold it in the hair.

A French clip is the kind that you squeeze 2 prongs to launch if from the closed position, and will spring open like a mouse trap because of the stress it is under by the semi-loose bracket on the within. That bracket remains in the shape of a crescent.

Most likely less common, are the plastic clip or barrette and a breeze, which some makers of hair bows usage, and they are quite easy in and are plastic or metal so to provide you the lightest possible on completed hair bows.
