Southern Sass Halloween bows are made with high quality grosgrain ribbon with added HTV & are sewn in the middle, so they are extremely durable. All ends are heat sealed to prevent fraying & ensure they last for years of wear. Double Layer Halloween bows are secured with hot glue on either a French clip, alligator clip or ponytail holder. They are not too flimsy, but not too stiff, so you can wear them flat or poof them up! Ribbons are washable with mild soap and water. We are Moms too, and we know what you need!
